Stephen Hawking

“If what we regard as real depends on our theory, how can we make reality the basis of our philosophy? …But we cannot distinguish what is real about the universe without a theory…it makes no sense to ask if it corresponds to reality, because we do not know what reality is independent of a theory.”  – Stephen Hawking

“If we knew what it was we were doing, it would not be called research, would it?” –Albert Einstein

“Exploratory research is really like working in a fog.  You don’t know where you’re going.  You’re just groping.  Then people learn about it afterwards and think how straightforward it was.”  – Francis Crick
