To choose love and jump in not knowing, with a lot of unknowns, is a brave act.
Mara Brock Akil
If you break your finger, that's on you, right? But if you get a chronic illness, if you get a serious illness or life-threatening illness, that's something I think we should all share the cost in because we all face the same unknowns and the same risks.
Birth and death; we all move between these two unknowns.
Bryant H. McGill
Tinkering is a way of understanding difficult problems, of wrapping our heads around them and quantifying the unknowns.
The world is divided into two categories: failures and unknowns.
We know there are certain types of viruses that are nasty - influenza, for instance, is an area that is not a blindside. But a lot of viruses have come out of nowhere, like H.I.V., or to a certain extent SARS. Because we know we have the potential to be blindsided, we really have to investigate the unknowns.
I worry a bit about the unknowns when it comes to travelers to the war zones in Syria and Iraq. Who don't I see? And I worry about the people who may be in their basements radicalizing that I can't see.
There's always the risk that there are unknown unknowns.
When I got diagnosed, the more research I did about it - MS overall, as a subject, as a disease - there's a lot of misconceptions and there's a lot of unknowns about it, and there wasn't anyone out that was close to my age or close to anything like me out there.
I think every year brings unknowns that you have to deal with and handle, confront and embrace.

I thought, 'Oh, I'll be an independent producer. Oh, I'll be a manager.'

With 'Puddle Cruiser,' the first 15 minutes are the weakest. When you're total unknowns and you have a weak opening, it's a real problem. At some screenings, we'd see the odd walkout before the movie even got going. But to counteract that, we'd do sketches before the show to introduce the film.
A lot of scientists on Earth think of things that they could do in zero g. Things like the way metals cure, for example, and the way fluids react in space can tell us a lot about some of the unknowns we have on Earth.
Kevin A. Ford
I'm interested in the murky areas where there are no clear answers - or sometimes multiple answers.

I am looking for unknowns who are passionate and mission-based. But I don't try to tout the next great thing I want to get in front of, because I don't set that course. The entrepreneurs do that.
