"Oh, the laws of physics and of logic... the number system... the principle of algebraic substitution. These are ghosts. We just believe in them so thoroughly they seem real."
"We are all of us very arrogant and conceited about running down other people's ghosts but just as ignorant and barbaric and superstitious about our own."
"Einstein had said: 'Man tries to make for himself in the fashion that suits him best a simplified and intelligible picture of the world.'"
"The more you look, the more you see."
