Ludwig Boltzmann, who spent much of his life studying
statistical mechanics, died in 1906 by his own hand.
Paul Ehrenfest, carrying on his work, died similarly in 1933.
Now it is our turn to study statistical mechanics.  Perhaps
it will be wise to approach the subject cautiously.

-- David L. Goodstein (States of Matter, Dover 1985)
