> "Whenever I think about any of these discoveries, I feel a tingle of
>exhilaration. My heart races. I can't help it. Science is an astonish-
>ment and a delight. Every time a spacecraft flies by a new world, I
>find myself amazed. Planetry scientists ask themselves: 'Oh, is that
>the way it is? Why didn't we think of that?' But nature is always more
>subtle, more intricate, more elegant than what we are able to
>imagine. Given our manifest human limitations, what is surprising is
>that we have been able to penetrate so far into the secrets of Nature."

> P310 of "The Demon Haunted World" (Paperback edition)
