Quotation: Fate is the Hunter

“And sometimes, [air crash investigators] discover a truth which they can explain in the hard, clear terms of mechanical science. They must never, regardless of their discoveries, write off a crash as simply a case of bad luck.

They must never, for fear of official ridicule, admit to other than themselves, which they all do, that some totally unrecognizable genie has once again unbuttoned his pants and urinated on the pillar of science.”

~Ernest K. Gann, Fate is the Hunter
