Modern science has imposed on humanity the necessity for wandering.
Its progressive thought and its progressive technology make the transition through time, from generation to generation, a true migration into uncharted seas of adventure.
The very benefit of wandering is that it is dangerous and needs skill to avert evils.
We must expect, therefore, that the future will disclose dangers.
It is the business of the future to be dangerous; and it is among the merits of science that it equips the future for its duties.
Alfred North Whitehead
Our craving for greater clarity and coherence, both in our speech and in the experience of which we speak, seeks a solution to a problem, a solution on which we may henceforth rely.
It tries to discover something and to establish it firmly.
We seek self-satisfaction here only as a token of what should be universally satisfying.
The modification of our intellectual identity is entered upon in the hope of achieving thereby closer contact with reality.
We take a plunge only in order to gain a firmer foothold.
The intimations of this prospective contact are conjectural and may prove false, but they are not therefore mere guesses like betting on a throw of dice.
For the capacity for making discoveries is not a kind of gambler's luck.
It depends on natural ability, fostered by training and guided by intellectual effort.
All I've done is give you a book. You have to have the courage to learn what's inside it.
Freida Joy Riley (Homer H. Hickam, Jr., Rocket Boys: A Memoir, 1998)
