Conjectures quote by Paul Erdos

The purpose of life is to conjecture and prove. — Paul Erdos

Two things fill the mind with ever new and increasing admiration and awe, the oftener and more steadily we reflect on them: the starry heavens above me and the moral law within me. — Immanuel Kant

In politics a capable ruler must be guided by circumstances, conjectures and conjunctions. — Catherine II

All knowledge is conjectural. — Naval Ravikant

What song the Syrens sang, or what name Achilles assumed when he hid himself among women, though puzzling questions, are not beyond all conjecture. — Thomas Browne

At bottom, textual criticism for virtually all other ancient literature relies on creative conjectures, or imaginative guesses, at reconstructing the wording of the original. Not so with the New Testament. — Daniel B. Wallace

We have to learn again that science without contact with experiments is an enterprise which is likely to go completely astray into imaginary conjecture. — Hannes Alfven

We have an unknown distance yet to run, an unknown river to explore. What falls there are, we know not; what rocks beset the channel, we know not; what walls ride over the river, we know not. Ah, well! we may conjecture many things. — John Wesley Powell

I shall not mingle conjectures with certainties. — Isaac Newton

In debates between anarchists and statists, the burden of proof clearly should rest on those who place their trust in the state. Anarchy's mayhem is wholly conjectural; the state's mayhem is undeniably, factually horrendous. — Robert Higgs

There are those who feel an imperative need to believe, for whom the values of a belief are proportionate not to its truth, but to its definiteness. Incapable of either admitting the existence of contrary judgments or of suspending their own, they supply the place of knowledge by turning other men's conjectures into dogmas. — C. E. M. Joad

We have an unknown distance yet to run, an unknown river to explore. — John Wesley Powell

The mind revels in conjecture. Where information is lacking, it will gladly fill in the gaps. — James Geary

You know more of a road by having traveled it than by all the conjectures and descriptions in the world. — William Hazlitt

Do not walk in the path of human reason, and resist the pressures that would project you into conjectures about the future. Live one day at a time! Simply striving to bring joy to your Father's heart is enough to keep you occupied. For you know that He loves you, and you will find your peace as you rest in Him. — Frances J Roberts

It is clear that there is no classification of the Universe that is not arbitrary and full of conjectures. The reason for this is very simple: we do not know what kind of thing the universe is. — Jorge Luis Borges

The atheist risk everything for the present and the future, on the basis of a belief that we are uncaused by any intelligent being. We just happen to be here. That one is willing to live and die in that belief is a very high price to pay for conjecture. — Ravi Zacharias

There is something fascinating about science. One gets such wholesale returns of conjecture out of such a trifling investment of fact. — Mark Twain

The entire annals of Observation probably do not elsewhere exhibit so extraordinary a verification of any theoretical conjecture adventured on by the human spirit! — John Pringle Nichol

The art of discovering the causes of phenomena, or true hypotheses, is like the art of deciphering, in which an ingenious conjecture often greatly shortens the road. — Gottfried Leibniz

Far from creating a new formalism, what these can yield is something far transcending surface values since they not only embody form as beauty, but also form in which intuitions or ideas or conjectures have taken visible substance. — Max Bill

Rumor is a pipe Blown by surmises, jealousies, conjectures. — William Shakespeare

[Great scientists] are men of bold ideas, but highly critical of their own ideas: they try to find whether their ideas are right by trying first to find whether they are not perhaps wrong. They work with bold conjectures and severe attempts at refuting their own conjectures. — Karl Popper

To explain all nature is too difficult a task for any one man or even for any one age. Tis much better to do a little with certainty & leave the rest for others that come after than to explain all things by conjecture without making sure of any thing. — Isaac Newton

The rules of scientific investigation always require us, when we enter the domains of conjecture, to adopt that hypothesis by which the greatest number of known facts and phenomena may be reconciled. — Matthew Fontaine Maury

Mathematics is the art of explanation. If you deny students the opportunity to engage in this activity-- to pose their own problems, to make their own conjectures and discoveries, to be wrong, to be creatively frustrated, to have an inspiration, and to cobble together their own explanations and proofs-- you deny them mathematics itself. — Paul Lockhart

To do mathematics is to engage in an act of discovery and conjecture, intuition and inspiration; to be in a state of confusion − not because it makes no sense to you, but because you gave it sense and you still don't understand what your creation is up to. — Paul Lockhart

Every conjecture we can form with regard to the works of God has as little probability as the conjectures of a child with regard to the works of an adult. — Thomas Reid

If a man dreams that he has committed a sin before which the sun hid his face, it is often safe to conjecture that, in sheer forgetfulness, he wore a red tie, or brown boots with evening dress. — Arthur Machen

It has been sagaciously conjectured, that the artful legislator indulged the stubborn prejudices of his countrymen. — Edward Gibbon

To die for an idea is to set a rather high price upon conjecture. — Anatole France

I have been speculating last night what makes a man a discoverer of undiscovered things. As far as I can conjecture the art consists in habitually searching for the causes and meaning of everything which occurs. — Charles Darwin

Now entertain conjecture of a time When creeping murmur and the poring dark Fills the wide vessel of the universe. — William Shakespeare

A few of the sublimest geniuses of Rome and Athens had some faint discoveries of the spiritual nature of the human soul, and formed some probable conjectures, that man was designed for a future state of existence. — David Brainerd

The theory of numbers, more than any other branch of mathematics, began by being an experimental science. Its most famous theorems have all been conjectured, sometimes a hundred years or more before they were proved; and they have been suggested by the evidence of a mass of computations. — G. H. Hardy

The classes of problems which are respectively known and not known to have good algorithms are of great theoretical interest. [...] I conjecture that there is no good algorithm for the traveling salesman problem. My reasons are the same as for any mathematical conjecture: (1) It is a legitimate mathematical possibility, and (2) I do not know. — Jack Edmonds

Given a conjecture, the best thing is to prove it. The second best thing is to disprove it. The third best thing is to prove that it is not possible to disprove it, since it will tell you not to waste your time trying to disprove it. That's what Gödel did for the Continuum Hypothesis. — Saharon Shelah

I think everybody handles things very differently and you can conjecture, but until you're put in that situation, you really don't know. — Laura Linney

To explain all nature is too difficult a task for any one man or even for any one age — Isaac Newton

In the discovery of secret things and in the investigation of hidden causes, stronger reasons are obtained from sure experiments and demonstrated arguments than from probable conjectures and the opinions of philosophical speculators of the common sort. — William Gilbert

Because I believe that humans are computers, I conjectured that computers, like people, can have left- and right-handed versions. — Philip Emeagwali

Every theory in philosophy, which is built on pure conjecture, is an elephant; and every theory that is supported partly by fact, and partly by conjecture, is like Nebuchadnezzar's image, whose feet were partly of iron, and partly of clay. — Thomas Reid

We hate the very idea that our own ideas may be mistaken, so we cling dogmatically to our conjectures. — Karl Popper

A felicitous but unproved conjecture may be of much more consequence for mathematics than the proof of many a respectable theorem. — Atle Selberg

Other people do not see you at all, but guess at you by uncertain conjectures. — Michel de Montaigne
