There are no passengers on Spacesip Earth. We all are crew.

Marshall McLuham.

The most exiting phrase to hear in science, the one that heralds the most discoveries, is not Eureka! (I found it) but 'That's funny....'.

Issac Asimov

These are good. I particularly like the 2nd one. :)

I have some books by Isaac Asimov.....I need to read each sentence he writes twice to maybe understand what he is saying. I'm not a science wiz !

I also like the second one. He may be talking about science, but I think the central theme is "discovery". There are times were I say something like, that's funny, weird, strange, unusual etc.. and it can be something as small as a small volunteer plant in my garden.
