„Scripture tells us that there is evil in the world, and that terrible things happen for reasons that defy human understanding.“

—  Barack Obama 44th President of the United States of America 1961

2011, Tucson Memorial Address (January 2011)
Контексте: Scripture tells us that there is evil in the world, and that terrible things happen for reasons that defy human understanding. In the words of Job, "when I looked for light, then came darkness." Bad things happen, and we must guard against simple explanations in the aftermath.

„If scientific reasoning were limited to the logical processes of arithmetic, we should not get far in our understanding of the physical world. One might as well attempt to grasp the game of poker entirely by the use of the mathematics of probability.“

—  Vannevar Bush, книга As We May Think

As We May Think (1945)
Контексте: If scientific reasoning were limited to the logical processes of arithmetic, we should not get far in our understanding of the physical world. One might as well attempt to grasp the game of poker entirely by the use of the mathematics of probability. The abacus, with its beads strung on parallel wires, led the Arabs to positional numeration and the concept of zero many centuries before the rest of the world; and it was a useful tool — so useful that it still exists.

„It is the duty of the human understanding to understand that there are things which it cannot understand, and what those things are.“

—  Sören Kierkegaard Danish philosopher and theologian, founder of Existentialism 1813 - 1855

1847
1840s
Контексте: It is the duty of the human understanding to understand that there are things which it cannot understand, and what those things are. Human understanding has vulgarly occupied itself with nothing but understanding, but if it would only take the trouble to understand itself at the same time it would simply have to posit the paradox.

„It's kind of interesting to show that the strange features of quantum mechanics are actually observed. We still don't totally understand what it means.“

—  Leonard Mandel German physicist 1927 - 2001
