The education business is a little murky because by 1900, it has been pretty well decided that a certain amount of education was required to make the system of repression work.

David Levering Lewis
Most research into life’s murky origin has been carried out by chemists. They’ve tried a variety of approaches in their attempts to recreate the first steps on the road to life, but little progress has been made. Perhaps that is no surprise, given life’s stupendous complexity.
Paul Davies
I never hand in a book until it’s completed. Richard Jackson then reads it and asks me to clarify murky points. We work very well together. He knows how hard to push, and I know how hard to push back. He’s the only person who can criticize my work without me throwing a hissy fit.
