Louis Pasteur Sayings: Preconceived ideas are like searchlights which illumine the path of the experimenter and serve him as a guide to interrogate nature. They become a danger only if he transforms them into fixed ideas-this is why I should like to see these profound words inscribed on the threshold of all the temples of science: 'The greatest derangement of the mind is to believe in something because one wishes it to be so.'

Louis Pasteur Sayings: Without theory, practice is but routine born of habit. Theory alone can bring forth and develop the spirit of invention. ...
