Theorem of the day from Robin Whitty  Mathematician of the week 
Hans Bethe (1906  2005)
No one any longer pays attention to  if I may call it  the spirit of physics, the idea of discovery, the idea of understanding. I think it's difficult to make clear to the nonphysicist the beauty of how it fits together, of how you can build a world picture, and the beauty that the laws of physics are immutable.
