„We did just leave an insane asylum,” Hi agreed. “For all we know, Chance spend his nights dancing naked with sock puppets, plotting to invade Canada.“

„We know who the homicidal maniacs are. They are the ones cheering and dancing right now.
We should invade their countries, kill their leaders and convert them to Christianity.“

—  Ann Coulter author, political commentator 1961
Context: Airports scrupulously apply the same laughably ineffective airport harassment to Suzy Chapstick as to Muslim hijackers. It is preposterous to assume every passenger is a potential crazed homicidal maniac. We know who the homicidal maniacs are. They are the ones cheering and dancing right now. We should invade their countries, kill their leaders and convert them to Christianity. We weren't punctilious about locating and punishing only Hitler and his top officers. We carpet-bombed German cities; we killed civilians. That's war. And this is war.

„We are all agreed that your theory is crazy. The question that divides us is whether it is crazy enough to have a chance of being correct.“

—  Niels Bohr Danish physicist 1885 - 1962
Said to Wolfgang Pauli after his presentation of Heisenberg's and Pauli's nonlinear field theory of elementary particles, at Columbia University (1958), as reported by F. J. Dyson in his paper “Innovation in Physics” (Scientific American, 199, No. 3, September 1958, pp. 74-82; reprinted in "JingShin Theoretical Physics Symposium in Honor of Professor Ta-You Wu," edited by Jong-Ping Hsu & Leonardo Hsu, Singapore; River Edge, NJ: World Scientific, 1998, pp. 73-90, here: p. 84). Your theory is crazy, but it's not crazy enough to be true. As quoted in First Philosophy: The Theory of Everything (2007) by Spencer Scoular, p. 89 There are many slight variants on this remark: We are all agreed that your theory is crazy. The question which divides us is whether it is crazy enough. We are all agreed that your theory is crazy. The question is whether it is crazy enough to be have a chance of being correct. We in the back are convinced your theory is crazy. But what divides us is whether it is crazy enough. Your theory is crazy, the question is whether it's crazy enough to be true. Yes, I think that your theory is crazy. Sadly, it's not crazy enough to be believed.
