SEARCH BY CITATION

Abstract

“Those who do not know the torment of the unknown cannot have the joy of discovery which is certainly the liveliest that the mind of man can ever feel. But by a whim of our nature, the joy of discovery, so sought and hoped for, vanishes as soon as found. … This is the feeling that made Priestley say that each discovery we make shows us many others that should be made; this is the feeling which Pascal expressed, when he said: We are in search never of things, but of the search for things.”
