Time crumbles things; everything grows old under the power of Time and is forgotten through the lapse of Time.
Piety requires us to honor truth above our friends.
At the heart of science is an essential balance between two seemingly contradictory attitudes: an openness to new ideas, no matter how bizarre or counterintuitive they may be, and the most ruthless skeptical scrutiny of all ideas, old and new. This is how deep truths are winnowed from deep nonsense.
It is unlikely that we will ever see a star being born. Stars are like animals in the wild. We may see the very young, but never their actual birth, which is a veiled and secret event. Stars are born inside thick clouds of dust and gas in the spiral arms of the galaxy, so thick that visible light cannot penetrate them.
~Heinz R. Pagels, Perfect Symmetry: The Search for the Beginning of Time (1985), p. 44
No research will answer all queries that the future may raise. It is wiser to praise the work for what it has accomplished and then to formulate the problems still to be solved.
~Theobald Smith, letter to Dr. E. B. Krumhaar (11 Oct 1933), in Journal of Bacteriology (Jan 1934), 27, No. 1, p. 19.
In much of society, research means to investigate something you do not know or understand.
~Neil Armstrong (b. 1930), American astronaut, the first man to set foot on the moon.
Perhaps the very best question that you can memorize and repeat, over and over, is, “What is the most valuable use of my time right now?”
The winners in life think constantly in terms of I can, I will, and I am. Losers, on the other hand, concentrate their waking thoughts on what they should have or would have done, or what they can’t do.
~Denis E. Waitley (born 1933), an American motivational speaker and writer, consultant and best-selling author

A Time for Birth
A time for birth,
A time for death,
A time to feel
The Spirit’s breath.

The lawyers, profs,*
And judges let
The people down,
To great regret.
*Notable exceptions in our time are James Tracy and Jim Fetzer, who do write and speak the truth.
It reflects well on a university to keep a professor who maintains his unpopular views. It reflects poorly on a university when it bows to public pressure and fires a professor.

The vast majority of lawyers like to pretend we’re not in a police state. After all, if they did recognize what it is, they would have to do something about it.
I am a prof
And I’m afraid
To question those
From whom I’m paid.
To drag this land
Toward Nazi hell.

I’m convinced folks, with what evidence I’ve gathered through the years of research and factual evidence, that we are in Hitler’s dream of a “Fourth Reich” in America run by psychopaths. Germany didn’t entirely lose WWII, Nazi scientists were moved (Operation Paperclip) from Germany to America. History is repeating itself again.
