"A scientist is one who, in the pursuit of this knowledge, has felt so passionate a love for the mysteries of nature that he forgets himself." #QotD


"We may define a scientist as one who during the course of an experiment has perceived something that leads to a further investigation of the profound truths of life, and has lifted the veil which hid its fascinating secrets, and who, in the pursuit of this knowledge, has felt so passionate a love for the mysteries of nature that he forgets himself."
        ~ Dr Maria Montessori, from The Discovery of the Child (Clio, 1988) p. 6
