It is good to send in a quote. One day in advance I have one I like:
*Man has to awaken to wonder. Science is a way of sending him to sleep
I like that. It is true in an unexpected sneaky way. I would like to add
(if you do not laugh too much)
Science is a way invented by us to, quickly, go to sleep again after a
shocking form of awakening. It is a collective self-delusion. Still I like
to play around with e.g. problems from Intuitive Geometry and enjoy the
proofs I invent and that are invented by others.
