know that most men, including those at ease with problems of the greatest complexity, can seldom accept even the simplest and most obvious truth if it be such as would oblige them to admit the falsity of conclusions which they have delighted in explaining to colleagues, which they have proudly taught to others, and which they have woven, thread by thread into the fabric of their lives.”

Tolstoy


"

Quote:
The discovery of truth is prevented more effectively not by the false appearance of things present and which mislead into error, not directly by weakness of the reasoning powers, but by preconceived opinion, by prejudice."

- Schopenhauer




Quote:
The test of a first-rate intelligence is the ability to hold two opposed ideas in mind at the same time and still retain the ability to function."

- F. Scott Fitzgerald



Quote:
"Don't worry about people stealing your ideas. If your ideas are that good, you'll have to ram them down people's throats."

- Howard Aiken







Quote:
“For an idea that does not first seem insane, there is no hope.” Albert Einstein

From the book: BOOTS AND SADDLES:

Quote:
Mrs. F. Ambrose Clark's description of the course of conduct that an owner should follow:

"When you win, look as if you were used to it, when you lose, look as if you liked it."



A quote from a vet, Dr. Ken Seeber, which I used while racing in Delaware off and on:

Quote:
“I always said most trainers are frustrated veterinarians and most racetrack veterinarians are equally frustrated trainers. The two seem to go hand in hand,”
