Tellerian Wisdom quote from edward teller way of the renaissance man starring jim woods

“A fact is a simple statement that everyone believes. It is innocent, unless found guilty. A hypothesis is a novel suggestion that no one wants to believe. It is guilty, until found effective.”
–Edward Teller

 

 

Like so many great scientists, the wisdom of Edward Teller is both underappreciated and less well-known than it should be. In his quote, Teller demonstrates peoples’ attitudes toward facts and hypotheses. We like facts, until they conflict with our world view. And, we reject new ideas until they prove to be useful. When you’re managing your life, remember that facts are what they are, and no amount of wishing will make them different. And, if a hypothesis is effective, embrace it.
