  3. Nikola Tesla:

    If he [Thomas Edison] had a needle to find in a haystack, he would not stop to reason where it was most likely to be, but would proceed at once with the feverish diligence of a bee, to examine straw after straw until he found the object of his search. … Just a little theory and calculation would have saved him ninety percent of his labor.

  4. Dolline Hatchett:

    What this means in real terms is we are missing prevention opportunities, important evidence is being lost that we would normally examine following an accident.
