A reasonably good collection of quotes on science and innovation by famous academics, such as Thomas Edison, Albert Einstein, but also artists like Picasso. Have a look here.
„Even a large estimated coefficient would not be significant if the standard deviation is also very large. Generally, the lowest ratio to be statistically significant would be about 1.65 (though there are other factors that determine this). A high level of significance would require a ratio closer to 2.5. Thus, one can look at any table and expect significant coefficients to be around twice the value of their standard deviation (or more).“
