Quote of the Week

Quote of the Week

Home “[Science] sometimes looks like a lonely activity, but it is as much the opposite of lonely as human behavior can be. There is nothing so social, so communal, so interdependent. An active field of science is alike an immense anthill; the individual almost vanishes into the mass of minds tumbling over each other, carrying information from place to place, passing it around at the speed of light.”

Lewis Thomas from The Lives of a Cell: Notes of a Biology Watcher
