————————————————————————————————————————————–Thinking of a career in science? from W. W. Ballard’s (1958) Epilogue in “A Closer Look At Science” (with thanks to K. Adler)

“At the creative level, science is rather a lunatic spectacle, of people searching for things that they have not thought of yet, using & contributing to knowledge which they themselves distrust,…and justifying the effort in terms of the welfare of posterity they will never see.

Difficult & confusing as conditions are at the frontiers of science, a person with an active curiosity & a determination to live creatively for an ideal that is beyond him(her)self can find few careers more rewarding than scientific investigation.”
