“All limitations are self-imposed!” -Oliver Wendell Holmes

“Economics deals with the real actions of real men. Its [laws] refer neither to ideal nor to perfect men, neither to the phantom of a fabulous economic man (homoeconomicus) nor to the statistical notion of an average man. . . . Man with all his weaknesses and limitations, every man as he lives and acts, is the subject matter of [economics].”
—Ludwig von Mises

“The man with insight enough to admit his limitations comes nearest to perfection.” -Johann Wolfgang von Goethe
