    “I realized it for the first time in my life: there is nothing but mystery in the world, how it hides behind the fabric of our poor, browbeat days, shining brightly, and we don't even know it.”
    ― Sue Monk Kidd, The Secret Life of Bees

    “I had an unusually large-sized head, though this was not uncommon for a baby in the Midwest. The craniums in our part of the country were designed to leave a little extra room for the brain to grow in case one day we found ourselves exposed to something we didn't understand, like a foreign language, or a salad.”
    ― Michael Moore, Here Comes Trouble

    Not only is the universe stranger than we imagine, it is stranger than we can imagine.

    Arthur Eddington

    BONUS

    1
    An astronomer interested in Einstein's theory because of its wide-ranging implications for astrophysics and cosmology, Eddington took on the task of proving it. By harnessing a total solar eclipse, he argued that the deflection, or bending, of light by the Sun's gravity could be measured.

    2
    Eddington discovered in 1926 that the inward gravitational pressure of a star must maintain the outward radiation and gas pressure to remain in equilibrium. He also demonstrated that there was an upper limit on the mass of a star.

    3
    Einstein and Eddington meetings made a partnership that allowed relativity to leap the trenches and make Einstein one of the most famous people on the globe. Einstein and Eddington did not meet during the war, or even send direct messages.

    "A general State education is a mere contrivance for moulding people to be exactly like one another; and as the mould in which it casts them is that which pleases the dominant power in the government, whether this be a monarch, an aristocracy, or a majority of the existing generation; in proportion as it is efficient and successful, it establishes a despotism over the mind, leading by a natural tendency to one over the body."
    - John Stuart Mill, (1806-1873) English philosopher and economist

    "It is not our own citizens only who are to receive the bounty of our government. More than eight millions of the stock of this bank are held by foreigners... is there no danger to our liberty and independence in a bank that in its nature has so little to bind it to our country? ... Controlling our currency, receiving our public moneys, and holding thousands of our citizens in dependence... would be more formidable and dangerous than a military power of the enemy."
    - President Andrew Jackson
