Uomo Buono, part 4

"Our long history of learning how not to fool ourselves as scientists is, I'm sorry to say, something we've left for you to catch on to by osmosis. So even though it's too late, I'll spell it out here, at the last minute.

"The first principle is that you must not fool yourself. And you are the easiest person to fool. After that it's easy not to fool other scientists--you just have to be honest in a conventional way."

-- From Feynman, a graphic novel by Jim Ottaviani and Leland Myrick, First Second, New York, 2011, pp.156-157.
