86,175.  Werner Heisenberg proposed a whole new law of physics.  He said that it was impossible to measure both the speed and the position of a particle.  Because strangely the mere act of observing these tiny objects radically affected their behaviour.  But if that was true it had profound implications.  If you couldn’t be precise about a particle’s speed and position, then it would be impossible to make accurate predictions about its movements.  And Einstein believed everything should be predictable ... The best you could hope for was a science based on probabilities.  (Quantum Physics & Probability)  Horizon: Einsteins Unfinished Symphony

 

 

768.  I know three things will never be believed – the true, the probable, and the logical.  (Belief & Truth & Probable & Logical)  John Steinbeck, The Winter of our Discontent

 

 

2,353.  When it is not in our power to determine what is true, we ought to follow what is most probable.  (Logic & Truth & Probability)  Rene Descartes

 

 

42,292.  He had a special interest in probability theory.  (Economics & Capitalism & Money & Probability)  Masters of Money I, BBC 2012

 

 

66,341.  The probability that we may fail in the struggle ought not to deter us from the support of a cause we believe to be just.  (Cause & Activism & Failure & Probability)  Abraham Lincoln

 

 

85,783.  Probability is expectation founded upon partial knowledge.  A perfect acquaintance with all the circumstances affecting the occurrence of an event would change expectation into certainty, and leave nether room nor demand for a theory of probabilities.  (Probability & Expectation)  George Boole 

 

 

85,784.  The laws of probability, so true in general, so fallacious in particular.  Edward Gibbon 

 

 

85,785.  In practical life we are compelled to follow what is most probable; in speculative thought we are compelled to follow truth.  Baruch Spinoza, The Letters

 

 

85,786.  The mind is not designed to grasp the laws of probability, even though the laws rule the universe.  Steven Pinker, How the Mind Works 

 

 

85,787.  I believe that we do not know anything for certain, but everything probably.  Christiaan Huygens, Oeuvres Completes 

 

 

85,788.  All knowledge resolves itself into probability ... In every judgment, which we can form concerning probability, as well as concerning knowledge, we ought always to correct the first judgment deriv’d from the nature of the object, by another judgment, deriv’d from the nature of the understanding.  (Probable & Knowledge)  David Hume, A treatise of Human Nature 1888

 

 

85,789.  Nature prefers the more probable states to the less probable because in nature processes take place in the direction of greater probability.  Heat goes from a body at higher temperature to a body at lower temperature because the state of equal temperature distribution is more probable than a state of unequal temperature distribution.  Max Planck 

 

 

85,790.  The theory of probabilities is at bottom nothing but common sense reduced to calculus; it enables us to appreciate with exactness that which accurate minds feel with a sort of instinct for which of times they are unable to account.  Pierre-Simon Laplace, Introduction to Théorie Analytique des Probabilitiés    

 

 

85,791.  The theory of probability is the only mathematical tool available to help map the unknown and the uncontrollable.  It is fortunate that this tool, while tricky, is extraordinarily powerful and convenient.  Benoit Mandelbrot, The Fractal Geometry of Nature

 

 

85,792.  Probability is the very guide to life.  Cicero
