Quote of the week




Max Karl Ernst Ludwig Planck



A new scientific truth does not triumph by convincing its opponents and making them see the light, but rather because its opponents eventually die and a new generation grows up that is familiar with it. … another instance of the fact that the future lies with the youth.


Max Planck.  Scientific Autobiography.  1950.  p. 33, 97
