A Quote by Georg Christoph Lichtenberg on truth

in

The great trick of regarding small departures from the truth as the truth itself -- on which is founded the entire integral calculus -- is also the basis of our witty speculations, where the whole thing would often collapse if we considered the departures with philosophical rigour.

Georg Lichtenberg (1742 - 1799)
