those who once had places in history and made a difference, but who have now been forgotten. Because, you know, you bring them back to life [when you write about them], and they live again.

„All my life, I have been fascinated by the big questions that face us, and have tried to find scientific answers to them.“

—  Stephen Hawking British theoretical physicist, cosmologist, and author 1942 - 2018

From the 1997 television program Stephen Hawking's Universe http://www.pbs.org/wnet/hawking/html/home.html
Unsourced variant: All of my life, I have been fascinated by the big questions that face us, and have tried to find scientific answers to them. Perhaps that is why I have sold more books on physics than Madonna has on sex. This quote seems to combine the above sentence from Stephen Hawking's Universe with a statement from the Foreword to The Illustrated Brief History of Time: As Nathan Myhrvold of Microsoft (a former post-doc of mine) remarked: I have sold more books on physics than Madonna has on sex.

„I am fascinated by religion. (That's a completely different thing from believing in it!)“

—  Douglas Adams, kniha The Salmon of Doubt

The Salmon of Doubt (2002)
Kontext: I am fascinated by religion. (That's a completely different thing from believing in it!) It has had such an incalculably huge effect on human affairs. What is it? What does it represent? Why have we invented it? How does it keep going? What will become of it? I love to keep poking and prodding at it. I've thought about it so much over the years that that fascination is bound to spill over into my writing.

„I consider it completely unimportant who in the party will vote, or how; but what is extraordinarily important is this—who will count the votes, and how.“

—  Joseph Stalin General secretary of the Communist Party of the Soviet Union 1879 - 1953

In Russian: Я считаю, что совершенно неважно, кто и как будет в партии голосовать; но вот что чрезвычайно важно, это - кто и как будет считать голоса.
Said in 1923, as quoted in The Memoirs of Stalin's Former Secretary http://www.panrus.com/books/details.php?langID=1&bookID=5905 (1992) by Boris Bazhanov [Saint Petersburg] (Борис Бажанов. Воспоминания бывшего секретаря Сталина). (Text online in Russian) http://lib.ru/MEMUARY/BAZHANOW/stalin.txt.
Variant (loose) translation: The people who cast the votes decide nothing. The people who count the votes decide everything.
