Random Quote #1

In an attempt to get a little more content here I’m starting a semi-regular post of interesting, provocative or strange quotations. By way of disclaimer, I don’t necessarily agree with all of these quotes, but I find something interesting about them all. What do you think? So here we go:

But the fact that some geniuses were laughed at does not imply that all who are laughed at are geniuses. They laughed at Columbus, they laughed at Fulton, they laughed at the Wright brothers. But they also laughed at Bozo the Clown.
— Carl Sagan

I find this quote quite useful when dealing with crackpots who feel persecuted.
