'There's no fire alarm without fire." That will never make it as a popular aphorism because as anyone who works in a large building knows, it just isn't true.

Sometimes you're in the middle of a problem, and the fire alarm goes off, you're tempted to lock your door and continue working. Because at this stage I know that fire alarms don't mean fire.
