Quotable Quotes from a Danish Physicist

Thanks to the rabbit hole that is the Internet, one interesting quote that I heard in a business presentation turned into a lovely diversion into the many wise sayings of one Niels Bohr, Danish physicist, Nobel Prize winner, and apparently quite the philosopher.  Peep these quotable quotes, all of which had me nodding vigorously:

"An expert is a person who has found out by his own painful experience all the mistakes that one can make in a very narrow field."
"We are all agreed that your theory is crazy. The question that divides us is whether it is crazy enough to have a chance of being correct."
"The opposite of a correct statement is a false statement. But the opposite of a profound truth may well be another profound truth."
