Some Wit, Wisdom & Bewilderment

…there are men to whom nothing seems great but thought. In force, that which they admire and which interests them is not its exercise, but its Law. These are the Scientific Men. If we seek to define science, as it lives in history, and not merely to put it into an artificial pigeon-hole, we shall conceive it as that about which those men are busied. As such, it does not so much consist in knowing, nor even in ‘organized knowledge’, as it does in diligent inquiry into truth for its own sake.
