The scientific virtue of epistemological humilty

"I do not know what I may appear to the world, but to myself I seem to have been only like a boy playing on the seashore, and diverting myself in now and then finding a smoother pebble or a prettier shell than ordinary, whilst the great ocean of truth lay all undiscovered before me."
~ Isaac Newton

"What we know is a drop, what we don't know is an ocean."

~ Isaac Newton
