Joseph Joubert

To have entertained a number of opinions gives the mind a great deal of flexibility, and strengthens it in its preferences.

Blaise Pascal

Blaise Pascal (June 19, 1623, in Clermont-Ferrand, France - August 19, 1662, in Paris) was a French mathematician, physicist, and religious philosopher. He was a child prodigy who was educated by his father, a civil servant. Pascal's earliest work was in the natural and applied sciences where he made important contributions to the construction of mechanical calculators, the study of fluids, and clarified the concepts of pressure and vacuum by generalizing the work of Evangelista Torricelli. Pascal also wrote in defense of the scientific method.

Pascal was a mathematician of the first order. He helped create two major new areas of research. He wrote a significant treatise on the subject of projective geometry at the age of sixteen, and later corresponded with Pierre de Fermat on probability theory, strongly influencing the development of modern economics and social science. Following Galileo and Torricelli, in 1646 he refuted Aristotle's followers who insisted that nature abhors a vacuum. His results caused many disputes before being accepted.

If I don't piss someone off, I'm not pushing the edges enough.

The news is about what people want to keep hidden. Everything else is publicity. People don't want to keep their opinions hidden, but they want to keep the facts hidden. And it takes a lot of money, a lot of time and a lot of effort to go and explore the facts and bring them out.
