Discovery should come as an adventure rather than as the result of a logical process of thought.More Theobald Smith quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
Discovery should come as an adventure rather than as the result of a logical process of thought. Sharp, prolonged thinking is necessary that we may keep on the chosen road but it does not itself necessarily lead to discovery. The investigator must be ready and on the spot when the light comes from whatever direction.More Theobald Smith quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
Research cannot be forced very much. There is always danger of too much foliage and too little fruit.More Theobald Smith quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
While the nature of Texas fever is by no means made clear as yet, we are able to affirm that ticks can produce it. Whether the disease can be transmitted by any other agency must be decided by future investigations. Meanwhile the evidence accumulated thus far seems to favor very strongly the dictum: No ticks, no Texas fever.More Theobald Smith quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
More and more of out colleagues fail to understand our work because of the high specialization of research problems. We must not be discouraged if the products of our labor are not read or even known to exist. The joy of research must be found in doing since every other harvest is uncertain.More Theobald Smith quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
