“Refusal to believe until proof is given is a rational position; denial of all outside of our own limited experience is absurd.” 
- Annie Besant

 "Men who think themselves wise believe nothing till the proof. Men who are wise believe anything till the disproof."

- Hassan to Selim 
James Elroy Flecker's play 
"Hassan: the story of Hassan of Bagdad 
and how he came to make the golden journey to Samarkand"
