I've always favored the quote:

"Ignorance is never better than knowledge." --Enrico Fermi

(This is supposed to be sourced in the book "Atoms in the Family: My life with Enrico Fermi", but I can't find the quote via Google Books, and it's a fair drive to the nearest library that has it.)

Not never.

Rationality witticisms suitable for t-shirts or bumper stickers

What are your best short witticisms, suitable for use on a t-shirt, bumper sticker, or similar location? Ideally something that might make someone reading it think, or get curious enough to ask about it. Simple in-group identification is fine too, though.

For context, therufs is spending today at the NC Maker Faire making t-shirts, and asked me for suggestions this morning. As I was still mostly asleep, I wasn't very helpful.
