'The media. It sounds like a convention of spiritualists.' - Tom Stoppard
'Among the great men who have philosophized about [the action of the tides], the one who surprised me most is Kepler. He was a person of independent genius, [but he] became interested in the action of the moon on the water, and in other occult phenome' -
