Thursday Quotables (Feb 18)

Welcome to Thursday Quotables, a weekly meme hosted by Bookshelf Fantasies. Every Thursday you can post a quote from a book that you're currently reading. It can be meaningful, funny, a real tearjerker or just something beautifully written. You decide. Click on the link above if you want to learn more.

This week, inspired by the new season of the X-files, I want to share some of the best lines delivered by our favourite skeptical scientist, Dana Scully. This line is a testimony to great writing and consistent character development. I also find it very inspiring, in science and in everyday life.

"Nothing happens in contradiction to nature, only in contradiction to what we know about it."

X-files, season 4, episode 1, Herrenvolk
