"One is never afraid of the unknown; one is afraid of the known coming to an end." - Jiddu Krishnamurti

“We must trust nothing but facts: These are presented to us by Nature, and cannot deceive. We ought, in every instance, to submit our reasoning to the test of experiment, and never to search for truth but by the natural road of experiment and observation.” – Antoine Lavoisier
