The experimenter who does not know what he is looking for will not understand what he finds.
      - Claude Bernard

Only when the tide goes out do you discover who's been swimming naked.
      - Warren Buffett

It is a mortifying truth, and ought to teach the wisest of us humility, that many of the most valuable discoveries have been the result of chance, rather than of contemplation, and of accident, rather than of design.
      - Charles Caleb Colton

Every new body of discovery is mathematical in form, because there is no other guidance we can have.
      - Charles Robert Darwin,
        "Mathematical Maxims and Minims" edited by N. Rose

The discovery of nuclear reactions need not bring about the destruction of mankind any more than the discovery of matches.
      - Albert Einstein

Minor things can become moments of great revelation when encountered for the first time.
      - Margot Fonteyn

      - Andre Gide

One doesn't discover new lands without consenting to lose sight of the shore for a very long time.
      - Andre Gide

We are pioneers setting out to explore a new country. We have the thrill of ever-changing view, now and again we reach a ridge or summit which opens up new and unexpected vistas--of necessity our point of view must continually change.
      - Sir James Jeans

Though the discoveries or acquisitions of man are not always adequate to the expectations of his pride, they are at least sufficient to animate his industry.
      - Samuel Johnson (a/k/a Dr. Johnson) ("The Great Cham of Literature")

This world of ours has been constructed like a superbly written novel: we pursue the tale with avidity, hoping to discover the plot.
      - Sir Arthur Keith

No great discovery was ever made without a bold guess.
      - Sir Isaac Newton

All great discoveries are made by men whose feelings run ahead of their thinkings.
      - Charles Henry Parkhurst

The only real voyage of discovery consists not in seeing new landscapes, but in having new eyes, in seeing the universe with the eyes of another, of hundreds of others, in seeing the hundreds of universes that each of them sees.
      - Marcel Proust

The real voyage of discovery consists not in seeking new landscapes, but in having new eyes.
      - Marcel Proust

When you make the finding yourself--even if you're the last person on Earth to see the light--you'll never forget it.
      - Carl Sagan

Look, and you will find it--what is unsought will go undetected.
      - Sophocles

Obedience does not stop for mystery, but, going on, sees twilight, brighten into day. How can wheat and corn become energy to think, and love, and work? Who can tell, but who can doubt? When we obey God's laws, it is as if an angel troubled the water, and instantly life and power emerge. Loyalty discovers. It is not merely the illumination, but the transfiguration of life; a brave departure, and then a discovery; "Westward-ho," and then a new world.
      - Unknown

A new principle is an inexhaustible source of new views.
      - Luc de Clapier de Vauvanargues
