Bohr on Intellectuals

Today is the fødselsdag of Niels Bohr, the Danish atomic physicist (1885-1962) who said
How wonderful that we have met with a paradox. Now we have some hope of making progress.

Never express yourself more clearly than you are able to think.

No, no, you're not thinking; you're just being logical.

Prediction is very difficult, especially if it's about the future.

Technology has advanced more in the last thirty years than in the previous two thousand. The exponential increase in advancement will only continue.
