Interesting Quotes

“I started with the purely tentative hypothesis that the person who signed the will was not Jeffrey Blackmore. I assumed this; and I may add that I did not believe it at the time, but merely adopted it as a proposition that was worth testing. I accordingly tested it, 'Yes?' Or 'No?' With each new fact; but as each new fact said 'Yes,' and no fact said definitely 'No,' it's probability increased rapidly by a sort of geometrical progression. The probabilities multiplied into one another. It is a perfectly sound method, for one knows that if a hypothesis is true, it will lead one, sooner or later, to a crucial fact by which its truth can be demonstrated.” R. Austin Freeman, "The Mystery of 31 New Inn".
