Edison was by far the most successful and, probably, the last exponent of the purely empirical method of investigation.  Everything he achieved was the result of persistent trials and experiments often performed at random but always attesting extraordinary vigour and resource.  Starting from a few known elements, he would make their combinations and permutations, tabulate them and run through the whole list, completing test after test with incredible rapidity until he obtained a clue.  His mind was dominated by one idea, to leave no stone unturned, to exhaust every possibility.  Nikola Tesla  

 

 

Eight hours a day for thirty-six days a special senate sub-committee held televised hearings known as the Army-McCarthy hearings in the spring of 1964.  Emile de Antonio, Point of Order, 1964

 

‘The thing the American people can do is to be vigilant day and night to make sure they don’t have communists teaching the sons and daughters of America.  ibid.  McCarthy    

 

 

Do not believe anything merely because you are told it is so, because others believe it, because it comes from Tradition, or because you have imagined it.  Do not believe what your teacher tells you merely out of respect.  Believe, take for your doctrine, and hold true to that, which, after serious investigation, seems to you to further the welfare of all beings.  Jean-Yves Leloup, Compassion and Meditation

 

 

This investigation is perplexing; it defies logic.  Star Trek: Voyager: Repression s7e4, Tuvok to Harry

 

 

Open discussion of many major public questions has for some now been taboo.  We cant open our mouths without being denounced as racists, misogynists, supremacists, imperialists or fascists.  As for the media, they stand ready to trash anyone so designated.  Saul Bellow

 

 

If way to a better there be, it extracts a full look at the worst.  Thomas Hardy, In Tenebris II

 

 

The unexamined life is not worth living.  Socrates          

 

 

You must pursue this investigation of Watergate even if it leads to the President.  Im innocent.  Youve got to believe Im innocent.  If you dont, take my job.  Richard Nixon

 

 

Various people have explained why Henry Kissinger is a bad choice to run an investigation into what went wrong on September 11th.  He’s a liar.  He’s an apologist for corrupt regimes.  Timothy Noah

 

 

Any doctrine that will not bear investigation is not a fit tenant for the mind of an honest man.  Any man who is afraid to have his doctrine investigated is not only a coward but a hypocrite.  Robert G Ingersoll

 

 

Nothing has such power to broaden the mind as the ability to investigate systematically and truly all that comes under thy observation in life.  Marcus Aurelius

This is not just Boston, it’s the whole country … I know thirteen [priests] here in Boston.  ibid.  victim
