Impossível vs. Improvável

Hoje é feriado em São Tomé e Príncipe. De São Tomé, o que fica dos Evangelhos é a célebre expressão: “ver para crer” (cf. https://pt.wikipedia.org/wiki/S%C3%A3o_Tom%C3%A9).

Não sendo apóstolos, mas autores consagrados, o que nos diz a literatura sobre o impossível e o improvável:


"Pode-se acreditar no impossível, mas nunca no improvável" - Oscar Wilde


"Depois de eliminado o impossível, o que resta, por mais improvável que seja, tem de ser verdade" - Sir Arthur Conan Doyle

Ohm spent most of the time resisting Ampere's opinions on current events.
For Schrodinger this was more a wave function rather than a social function.

Infelizmente não tenho os dados do autor, mas no espírito da quadra, Boas Festas a Todos!!!

O caminho

O caminho é feito caminhando, não existem regras pré definidas, importa o geral e não o pormenor ou o instante. Um dia são 86400 segundos, um frame são, aproximadamente,  0,017 segundos. Para a eternidade, António Variações, sobre a constante insatisfação intrínseca da condição humana!
