Of comfort no man speak: / Let's talk of graves, of worms and epitaphs, / Make dust our paper, and with rainy eyes / Write sorrow on the bosom of the earth. / Let's choose executors and talk of wills.../ For God's sake, let us sit upon the ground / And tell sad stories of the death of kings; / How some have been depos'd, some slain in war, / Some haunted by the ghosts they have depos'd / Some poisoned by their wives, some sleeping kill'd, / All murdered. For within the hollow crown / That rounds the mortal temples of a king, / Keeps Death his court, and there the Antic sits / Scoffing his state, and grinning at his pomp, / Allowing him a breath, a little scene / To monarchize, be fear'd, and kill with looks, / Infusing him with self and vain conceit, / As if this flesh , which walls about our life, / Were brass impregnable, and humor'd thus, / Comes at the last, and with a little pin / Bores through his castle wall, and - farewell king! The Tragedy of King Richard the Second- William Shakespeare (1564-1616)

....as for certain truth, no man has known it / Nor shall he know it, neither of the gods / Nor yet of all the things of which I speak, / For even if by chance he were to utter / The final truth, he would himself not know it / For all is but a woven web of guesses - Xenophanes (c570BC - 475BC)

I was struck by the large number of falsehoods I had accepted as true in my childhood - Rene Descartes (1597 -1650)

Yet Nature cannot be contravened but preserves a fixed and immutable order - Baruch Spinoza (1632 - 1677)There are two kinds of Truths: Truths of reasoning and Truths of fact. Why is there some- thing rather than nothing - Leibniz (1646 -1716)

'No man's knowledge here can go beyond his experience'. (A man's senses constitute the only direct awareness between himself and the reality external to him) 'All men are liable to error; and most men are, in many points, by passion or interest , under temptation to it'. John Locke (1632 - 1704)

'theory cannot be fabricated out of the results of observation...it can only be invented' (refuting induction) - Albert Einstein (1879 - 1955) in a letter to Karl Popper (1902 - 1994) 'It is not truisms which science unveils. Rather, it is part of the greatness and the beauty of science that we can learn, through our own critical investigations, that the world is utterly different from what we ever imagined - until our imagination was fired by the refutation of our earlier theories' Karl Popper quoting Albert Einstein 'The Logic of Scientific Discovery

'Only daring speculation can lead us further Albert Einstein (1879 - 1955)

...and if he be one who wishes to take his opinions on trust, how can we imagine that he should renounce those tenets which time and custom have so settled in his mind that he thinks them self-evident and of unquestionable certainty, or which he takes to be impressions he has received from God himself, or from men sent by him? How can we expect, I say, that opinions thus settled should be given up to the arguments of authority or the authority of a stranger or adversary? especially if there be any suspicion of interest or design, as there never fails to be where men find themselves ill-treated. We should do well to commiserate our mutual ignorance, and endeavour to remove it in all the gentle and fair ways of information, and not instantly treat others ill as obstinate and perverse because they will not renounce their own and receive our opinions......For where is the man that has uncontestable evidence of the truth of all that he holds, or of the falsehood of all he condemns; or can say, that he has examined to the bottom all his own or other men's opinions? The necessity of believing without knowledge, nay often upon very slight grounds , in this fleeting state of action and blindness we are in, should make us more busy and careful to inform ourselves than to restrain others. John Locke (1632 - 1704)
