„More attention to the History of Science is needed, as much by scientists as by historians, and especially by biologists, and this should mean a deliberate attempt to understand the thoughts of the great masters of the past, to see in what circumstances or intellectual milieu their ideas were formed, where they took the wrong turning or stopped short on the right track.“

Natural selection from the genetical standpoint. Australian Journal of Science 22, 16-17, 1959.

„We should be past tolerance in Canada
In Canada, can we speak of acceptance, openness, friendship, understanding? It is about where we are going and what we are going through every day in our diverse and rich communities
Tolerating someone means accepting their right to exist on the condition that they don’t disturb us too, too much.“

—  Justin Trudeau 23rd Prime Minister of Canada; eldest son of Pierre Trudeau 1971

„Wine is a great danger, especially because it doesn't bring truth to the surface. Anything but the truth, indeed: it reveals especially the past and forgotten history of the individual rather than his present wish; it capriciously flings into the light also all the half-baked ideas with which in a more or less recent period one has toyed and then forgotten.“

—  Italo Svevo, buch Zeno Cosini

Il vino è un grande pericolo specie perché non porta a galla la verità. Tutt'altro che la verità anzi: rivela dell'individuo specialmente la storia passata e dimenticata e non la sua attuale volontà; getta capricciosamente alla luce anche tutte le ideucce con le quali in epoca più o meno recente ci si baloccò e che si è dimenticate.
Quelle: La coscienza di Zeno (1923), P. 194; p. 232.
