Quote of the Day
Most great scientists know many important problems. They have something between ten and twenty important problems for which they are looking for an attack. And when they see a new idea come up, one hears them say “Well, that bears on this problem.” They drop all the other things and get after it…Now of course lots of times it doesn’t work out, but you don’t have to hit many of them to do some great science. It’s kind of easy. One of the chief tricks is to live a long time.
