An ____ Vu —

  1. “Normal science, the activity in which most scientists inevitably spend almost all their time, is predicated on the assumption that the scientific community knows what the world is like”

    ― Thomas S. Kuhn, The Structure of Scientific Revolutions

  2. “The reasonable man adapts himself to the world: the unreasonable one persists in trying to adapt the world to himself. Therefore all progress depends on the unreasonable man.”

  3. ―George Bernard Shaw, Man and Superman
