Quote of the Day – 12/20/2016


Scientists are to science what masons are to cathedrals. Catch any one of them outside the workplace, and you likely find someone leading an ordinary life preoccupied with quotidian tasks and pedestrian thought. Scientists seldom make leaps of the imagination. Most, in fact, never have a truly original idea. Instead, they snuffle their way through masses of data and hypotheses (the latter are educated guesses), sometimes excited but most of the time tranquil and easily distracted by corridor gossip and other entertainments. – E.O. Wilson; The Creation
