*In science
it often happens that scientists say, 'You know that's a really good argument;
my position is mistaken,' and then they actually change their minds and you
never hear that old view from them again. They really do it. It doesn't happen
as often as it should, because scientists are human and change is sometimes
painful. But it happens every day. I cannot recall the last time something like
that happened in politics or religion. *

*Carl
Sagan, 1987 CSICOP keynote address*

I was always delighted by the way in which Thom discussed mathematics, using sentences obviously having no strict logical meaning at all. While I was never able to completely free myself from the straitjacket of logic, I was forever poisoned by the dream of the irresponsible mathematical speculation with no exact meaning. "One can always find imbeciles to prove theorems" was, according to Thom's students, his principle.
