“All models are wrong. We make tentative assumptions about the real world which we know are false but which we believe may be useful.”- George Box 1976

Conclusions

  • Do not quench your inspiration and your imagination; do not become the slave of your model. Vincent van Gogh

  • A good model can advance fashion by ten years. Yves Saint Laurent

  • When I model I pretty much go blank. You can't think too much or it doesn't work.

  • Paulina Porizkova

  • A theory has only the alternative of being right or wrong. A model has a third possibility: it may be right, but irrelevant.

  • Manfred Eigen
