We do not write in order to be understood; we write in order to understand
-- Cecil Day-Lewis
Remember that all models are wrong; the practical question is how wrong do they have to be to not be useful
-- George Box & Norman R. Draper, Empirical Model-Building and Response Surfaces

Far better an approximate answer to the right question, which is often vague,
than an exact answer to the wrong question, which can always be made precise.

-- John Tukey, The future of data analysis. Ann. Math. Stat. 33 (1), (1962)

What one fool can do, another can
-- Ancient Simian Proverb (Silvanus P. Thompson)
