A quotation for today

Subrahmanyan Chandrasekhar (1910 - 1995)

In some strange way, any new fact or insight that I may have found has not seemed to me as a discovery  of mine, but rather something that had always been there and that I had chanced to pick up.
Truth and Beauty: Aesthetics and Motivations in Science (1987)

Another quotation by one of today's mathematicians
