  • Spirit of research

    1. 1. Spirit of research
    2. 2. Somewhere, something incredible is waiting to be known. - Carl Sagan
    3. 3. We are in the position of a little child entering a huge library filled with books in many different languages. The child knows someone must have written those books. It does not know how. It does not understand the languages in which they are they are they are written. The child dimly suspects a mysterious order in the arrangement of the books but doesn't know what it is. - Albert Einstein
    4. 4. If we knew what we were doing, it would not be called research, would it? - Albert Einstein
    5. 5. To do successful research, you don't need to know everything, you just need to know of one thing that isn't known . - Arthur Schawlow
    6. 6. I didn't think; I experimented. - Wilhelm Roentgen ( German physicist , 1845-1923)
    7. 7. If you are a scientist you believe that it is good to find out how the world works, that it is good to find out what the realities are, that it is good to turn over to mankind at large the greatest possible power to control the world... It is not possible to be a scientist unless you believe that the knowledge of the world, and the power which this gives, is a thing which is of intrinsic value to humanity, and that you are using it to help in the spread of knowledge, and are willing to take the consequences. - J. Robert Oppenheimer (1904-1967)
    8. 9. It is a good morning exercise for a research scientist to discard a pet hypothesis every day before breakfast - It keeps him [sic] young. - Konrad Lorenz
