“If there is one thing I fear less than everything else, it is, I believe, persecution for my opinions. There are a good many points about which I may be different, but when it comes to questions of truth and intelectual independence, there is no holding me – I can envisage no finer end than to sacrifice oneself for a conviction.” – Pierre Teilhard de Chardinn
