Max Delbruck

American German-born biophysicist, winner of the Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine in 1969
The progress of science is tremendously disorderly, and the motivations that lead to this progress are tremendously varied, and the reasons why scientists go into science, the personal motivations, are tremendously varied. I have said ... that science is a haven for freaks, that people go into science because they are misfits, and that it is a sheltered place where they can spin their own yarn and have recognition, be tolerated and happy, and have approval for it.More Max Delbruck quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
Any living cell carries with it the experience of a billion years of experimentation by its ancestors.More Max Delbruck quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
If you're too sloppy, then you never get reproducible results, then you never get reproducible results, and then you never can draw any conclusions; but if you are just a little sloppy, then when you see something startling, (...) you nail it down (...). So I called it the "Principle of Limited Sloppiness".More Max Delbruck quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
The books of the great scientists are gathering dust on the shelves of learned libraries. ... While the artist's communication is linked forever with its original form, that of the scientist is modified, amplified, fused with the ideas and results of others and melts into the stream of knowledge and ideas which forms our culture. The scientist has in common with the artist only this: that he can find no better retreat from the world than his work and also no stronger link with the world than his work.More Max Delbruck quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
