Johann Hudde Max Planck


A quotation for today

Max Planck (1858 - 1947)

An important scientific innovation rarely makes its way by gradually winning over and converting its opponents: it rarely happens that Saul becomes Paul. What does happen is that its opponents gradually die out, and that the growing generation is familiarised with the ideas from the beginning.

(New York 1949)
