Some Wit, Wisdom & Bewilderment

Science is defined in the dictionaries as systematized knowledge. But that is the corpse of science. As a living thing, animating men, it need not be free from error, – nor can it be, – and it cannot be thoroughly systematized so long as it is in rapid growth. Science is the sincere striving for knowledge for the sake of the knowledge itself. It cannot exist as long as people think they know already or think they have an infallible teacher.
