Barbara McClintock

A Quote by Barbara McClintock on children, friendship, justice, and research

The geneticist Barbara McClintock once said of her research, I was just so interested in what I was doing I could hardly wait to get up in the morning and get at it. One of my friends, a geneticist, said I was a child, because only children can't wait to get up in the morning to get at what they want to do.
