I have tried to show why I believe that the biologist is the most romantic figure on earth at the present day. At first sight he seems to be just a poor little scrubby underpaid man, groping blindly amid the mazes of the ultra-microscopic, engaging in bitter and lifelong quarrels over the nephridia of flatworms, waking perhaps one morning to find that someone whose name he has never heard has demolished by a few crucial experiments the work which he had hoped would render him immortal.More John Haldane quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
A time will however come (as I believe) when physiology will invade and destroy mathematical physics, as the latter has destroyed geometry.More John Haldane quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
