."Great occasions do not make heroes or cowards; they simply unveil them to the eyes of men. Silently and perceptibly, as we wake or sleep, we grow strong or weak; and last some crisis shows what we have become."
- Brooke Foss Westcott

Cargo Cult Science, by Richard Feynman, from a commencement address at Caltech in 1974. http://www.physics.brocku.ca/etc/cargo_cult_science.html.
