"The pursuit of science seems to me to require particular courage.
It is concerned with knowledge, achieved through doubt. Making knowledge about everything available for everybody, science strives to make sceptics of them all."

Bertolt Brecht, Life of Galileo.

"Non credo che la pratica della scienza possa andar disgiunta dal coraggio.
Essa tratta il sapere, che è un prodotto del dubbio; e col procacciare sapere a tutti su ogni cosa, tende a destare il dubbio in tutti."

Bertolt Brecht, Vita di Galileo.
