It has often and confidently been asserted, that man's origin can never be known: but ignorance more frequently begets confidence than does knowledge: it is those who know little, and not those who know much, who so positively assert that this or that problem will never be solved by science.
—Charles Darwin in The Descent of Man
If you would know anything thoroughly, teach it to others.
—Tryon Edwards in A Dictionary of Thoughts

—Elizabeth Gilbert in Eat, Pray, Love
I like not only to be loved, but also to be told I am loved.
