Asimov's epic quote on science

The most exciting phrase to hear in science, the one that heralds new discoveries, is not "Eureka!" (I found it!) but "That's funny ..."

Isaac Asimov (1920-1992), American author and professor of biochemistry at Boston University, best known for his works of science fiction and for his popular science books.

Thanks again for providing all the great quotes - this one will be a nice addition to my office decoration ;-)
We really should consider taking down the physics-posters in our department, to be replaced by printouts of your assembled quotes...
