Quotes about the Unknown, Investigation, Research, and Determination

As might be expected, I come across a lot of quotes I like when read/watching things for paranormal research. Here's some nice general ones relating to the mysteries of the world and investigating them:

“The most beautiful thing we can experience is the mysterious, the source of all true art and science.”

“I do it because I genuinely want to know.”
(Ben Redford, sceptic - on why he instigates the paranormal)

“There is a vast gulf between impossible and impossible to imagine.”
(Sherlock, 'Elementary')

“Why is it so noble and respectable to find whence man came, and so suspicious and dishonorable to ask and ascertain whither he goes?”

“Cryptology is the science of writing secret messages that no one except the intended receiver can read. Cryptanalysis is the science of reading them anyways.”
(Chuck Missler, Cosmic Codes)

“The only thing that you absolutely have to know, is the location of the library.”

“When you are growing up there are two institutional places that affect you most powerfully: the church, which belongs to God, and the public library, which belongs to you.”
(Keith Richards)

“If you wish to upset the law that all crows are black, you mustn't seek to show that all crows are; it is enough you prove one single crow to be white.”
(William James, on psychical research)

“They say when you have a case coming up, you will know because stuff will happen to you.”
(Susan Benzine, on paranormal investigation and exorcisms)

“I never said it was possible. I only said it was true.”
(Charles Richet)

“How does this happen? . . . I do not know.”
(Augustine, Bishop of Hippo, on dreams of others, idea transposed on ghosts)

“How are we to interrupt all those tales, passed down by the literate of the Middle Ages [Clerics], . . . that assert as a given what we have great difficulty admitting; that the dead appear in full daylight to people who were wide awake and of perfectly sound mind?”
(Jean-Claude Scmitt, Ghosts in the Middle Ages; the Living and the Dead in Medieval Society)

“I know there's things it the world we aren't told about; I hear them every day.”
