“Does the scientist’s world conform to the real one? Nature usually answers this question with an emphatic ‘No!’ It has in fact been said that Nature delights in saying ‘No’ and only with the greatest reluctance condescends to reveal her secrets. For this reason the scientist’s life is not an easy one. However, on those rare occasions when his world does conform to the real one, and for this reason does throw light on the world around us, the rewards and the satisfactions are great and more than compensate for the many disappointments.” —HERBERT A. HAUPTMAN
