Leon Lederman

American physicist, Professor Wolf Prize in Mathematics in Physics (1982)
The sequence of theorist, experimenter, and discovery has occasionally been compared to the sequence of farmer, pig, truffle. The farmer leads the pig to an area where there might be truffles. The pig searches diligently for the truffles. Finally, he locates one, and just as he is about to devour it, the farmer snatches it away. /sequence/ Leon Lederman quotes
