During the course of writing my thesis, I was reminded (by my advisor) of this wonderful quote by Mark Twain:

There is something fascinating about science. One gets such wholesale returns of conjecture out of such a trifling investment of fact.

Grinding through my data – it sounds so true.

(Perhaps the first mention of something remotely related to science on this blog.)

And while we are at it – rephrasing Ernest Rutherford :

“All science is either biophysics or stamp collecting.”
