A Quote by Albert Abraham Michelson on consequences, discovery, facts, laws, possibility, and science

(In 1903) The most important fundamental laws and facts of physical science have all been discovered, and these are now so firmly established that the possibility of their ever being supplemented in consequence of new discoveries is exceedingly remote.

A. A. Michelson (1852 - 1931)
