Heroes of Statistical Science (from left to right): Bernoulli, Farr, Fisher, Hill, Tukey

"The main point is gained if the student
is put in a position not to be paralysed by the mere
mention of such things but ... feels that they are inherently rational and
manageable and that if he encounters them he will be in a position to find out , at need, what to do with them." - **RA
Fisher **(Box, 1978, p. 405)

"Teaching mathematical statistics in
this way not only produced answers that were often irrelevant or misleading when
applied to real situations but also led students to think not of the reality
but of the mathematics as holding the key to statistical understanding. ....
Many of them seem to have no experience of the valuable process known as
"stopping to think." - **RA Fisher **(Box, 1978, p. 436)
