Great quote on underestimating uncertainty

I *loved* this quote that headed up one of the chapters in Susan Casey's The Wave, on the folly of underestimating uncertainty in what we do, and that we do exactly this as we get better at what we do.

Penetrating so many secrets, we cease to beleive in the unknowable.
But there it sits nevertheless, calmly licking it's chops.
H.L. Mencken
