Blaise Pascal

Found a great quote from Blaise Pascal. According to Wikipedia he’s french and used to be a great philosopher, mathematician, etc. in the 17th century. My prof in Business Informatics, Dr. Voß, uses the same quote in in his (german) book ”Informationsmanagement” to start off the “Information-, communication- and decision-model” chapter.

People are generally better persuaded by the reasons which they have
themselves discovered than by those which have come in to the mind of
others.

- Blaise Pascal

The right quote

As I’m writting my bachelor-thesis, quotation is a big deal for me right now. Turns out, hardest part is to find the right quote for the backside of my title page. I’m planning on printing a great quote (which hopefully fits my topic) on the bottom left of that “second page”. So far, this is my dummy…

Be nice to nerds. Chances are you’ll end up working for one.

- Bill Gates

Edit: I ended up with the following quote from George E.P. Box which I think fits quite well into my topic…

All models are wrong,
but some are useful.
