Quote about science

In real life, the most important moments in science are not greeted by the exclamation "Eureka!" but by a puzzled frown and the words "That's funny..."

I like this quote because it reminds me that sometimes what we discover is not anything like the thing for which we were searching and working.
(And now the world has Post-it notes.)
