Cantor's law of the conservation of ignorance.

"A false conclusion once arrived at and widely accepted is not easily dislodged

and the less it is understood, the more tenaciously it is held."


Some of my other favorite quotes:

“If there is any fixed star in our constitutional constellation, it is that no official, high or petty, can prescribe what shall be orthodox in politics, nationalism, religion, or other matters of opinion, or force citizens to confess by word or act or faith therein. … Freedom to differ is not limited to things that do not matter much. That would be a mere shadow of freedom. The test of its substance is the right to differ as to things that touch the heart of the existing order.” - Justice Robert H. Jackson, US Supreme Court 1941-54

"I would urge, that a thorough study of Human Physiology is, in itself, an education broader and more comprehensive than much that passes under that name. There is no side of the intellect which it does not call into play, no region of human knowledge into which either its roots, or its branches, do not extend." — Thomas Henry Huxley
