"One of the various theories proposed to explain the negative result of the famous Michelson-Morley experiment with light waves (conceived to measure the absolute space), was based on the ballistic hypothesis, i.e. on postulating that the speed of light predicted by Maxwell's equations was not given as relative to the medium but as relative to the transmitter (firearm). Had that been the case, the experiment negative results would have not caused such perplexity and frustration (as we shall see in forthcoming sections)."

12. "Many scholars forget, it seems to me, that our enjoyment of the great works of literature depends more upon the depth of our sympathy than upon our understanding. The trouble is that very few of their laborious explanations stick in the memory. The mind drops them as a branch drops its overripe fruit. ... Again and again I ask impatiently, "Why concern myself with these explanations and hypotheses?" They fly hither and thither in my thought like blind birds beating the air with ineffectual wings. I do not mean to object to a thorough knowledge of the famous works we read. I object only to the interminable comments and bewildering criticisms that teach but one thing: there are as many opinions as there are men."
Author: Helen Keller

Author: Kevin Wilson
18. "There's a famous quote which goes something like, ‘You are what you are, having secretly become what you wanted to be'. Maybe there's some truth to that. We like to think that society shapes us, but I don't think that that's the way it happens. Select, 1991"

I'd like to be supportive, so let me alert you to the possible pitfalls of this strategy. In the psychological study of attention, one comes across a famous short video clip of three students dressed in white and three dressed in black, with each team passing a basketball back and forth as the members constantly change positions. The goal for viewers is to count how many times the white team passes the ball from one member to another. If you'd like to participate yourself, which I recommend, you can view the video online at http://viscog.beckman.uiuc.edu/flashm..."

Today's Quote

Sacrilège: Mot terrible inventé par les prêtres pour désigner le crime affreux que commettent ceux qui touchent aux objets qu'ils ont nommés sacrés. Tout ce qui nuit aux prêtres nuit à Dieu, qui n'entend point raillerie. D'où l'on voit que voler Dieu, qui n'a besoin de rien, est un crime bien plus noir que de voler un pauvre. Plus celui qu'on vole est riche, plus le voleur est criminel. En conséquence celui qui vole Dieu ou ses prêtres est brûlé, celui qui vole un homme riche est pendu ; celui qui vole les pauvres n'a communément rien à craindre."
