AN UNCOMMON THOUGHT

"The real trick to life is not to be in the know, but to be in the mystery."

Spirit.


I like the scientific spirit—the holding off, the being sure but not too sure, the willingness to surrender ideas when the evidence is against them: this is ultimately fine—it always keeps the way beyond open—always gives life, thought, affection, the whole man, a chance to try over again after a mistake—after a wrong guess.

Walt Whitman
