MICHAEL DUFF: "Physics tend to be dictated by fad and fashion. There are the gurus who dictate the direction in which new ideas grow. It was a very lonely time in many ways.

Let's be clear: the work of science has nothing whatever to do with consensus. Consensus is the business of politics.

The object of life is not to be on the side of the majority, but to escape finding oneself in the ranks of the insane - Marcus Aurelius
