The final outcome cannot be known, either to the originator of a new theory, or to his colleagues and critics, who are bent on falsifying it. Thus, the scientific innovator may feel all the more lonely and uncertain.More Peter Mitchell quotes [07/26/2011 06:07:45]
Finally, to the theme of the respiratory chain, it is especially noteworthy that David Kellin's chemically simple view of the respiratory chain appears now to have been right all along-and he deserves great credit for having been so reluctant to become involved when the energy-rich chemical intermediates began to be so fashionable. This reminds me of the aphorism: 'The obscure we see eventually, the completely apparent takes longer'.More Peter Mitchell quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
Moreover, in the experimental sciences, the scientific fraternity must test a new theory to destruction, if possible.More Peter Mitchell quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
Meanwhile, the originator of a theory may have a very lonely time, especially if his colleagues find his views of nature unfamiliar, and difficult to appreciate.More Peter Mitchell quotes [07/26/2011 06:07:07]
