No one wants advice -- only corroboration.
— John Steinbeck

A person of mature years and ripe development, who is expecting nothing from literature but the corroboration and renewal of past ideas, may find satisfaction in a lucidity so complete as to occasion no imaginative excitement, but young and ambitious students are not content with it. They seek the excitement because they are capable of the growth that it accompanies.
Charles Horton Cooley corroboration quote

Any perjury case is a tough case. You just don't go on 'he said-she said.' You have to find corroborating evidence.
— Victoria Toensing

But because we live in an age of science, we have a preoccupation with corroborating our myths.
— Michael Shermer

There is no justifiable prediction about how the hypothesis will hold up in the future; its degree of corroboration simply is a historical statement describing how severely the hypothesis has been tested in the past.
— corroboration quotation by Robert Nozick
