Ben Bolker has kindly covered that in his useful Mixed Models FAQ:


"To do science is to search for repeated patterns, not simply to accumulate
facts..."   --Robert MacArthur 1972, Geographical Ecology
"Statistical methods of analysis are intended to aid the interpretation of
data that are subject to appreciable haphazard variability"    --Cox &
Hinkley 1974; Theoretical Statistics
