Quotation of the day

From Subrahmanyan Chandrasekhar
In some strange way, any new fact or insight that I may have found has not seemed to me as a discovery
of mine, but rather something that had always been there and that I had chanced to pick up.
Truth and Beauty: Aesthetics and Motivations in Science (1987)
