Estimates pass through the three stages of truth...

All truth passes through three stages. First, it is ridiculed. Second, it is violently opposed. Third, it is accepted as being self-evident.

Arthur Schopenhauer, German philosopher (1788 – 1860)

The older I get the more I appreciate this quote.   It even works for the little things like when I'm asked to give an estimate on a software project.
