Quotes: Galileo and Darwin

While writing my piece on intellectual deference, I came across a lot of awesome related quotes. Two of my favorites didn't make it into the final version of that post. These are they:
"The less people know and understand about [matters requiring thought], the more positively they attempt to argue concerning them, while… to know and understand a multitude of things renders men cautious in passing judgment upon anything new." - Galileo
"Ignorance more frequently begets confidence than does knowledge: it is those who know little, and not those who know much, who so positively assert that this or that problem will never be solved by science." - Charles Darwin
