Quotation of the day

From James Clerk Maxwell
... that, in a few years, all great physical constants will have been approximately estimated, and that the only occupation which will be left to men of science will be to carry these measurements to another place of decimals.
[Maxwell strongly disagreed with these views and was attacking them.]
Scientific Papers 2, 244, October 1871.
