 Personal Favorite Quote: "While the individual man is an insoluble puzzle, in the aggregate he becomes a mathematical certainty. You can, for example, never foretell what any one man will do, but you can say with precision what an average number will be up to. Individuals vary, but percentages remain constant. So says the statistician" - Winwood Reade, "The Martyrdom of Man" (1872); quoted by Sherlock Holmes in "The Sign of Four" (1889) by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle.
