A Quote by Norman R. Augustine on cities, daughters, driving, family, logic, perception, problems, solution, technology, and trying

Norman R. Augustine (1935 -)

A Quote by Napoleon Hill on defeat, life, logic, majorities, men, and success

We especially need imagination in science. It is not all mathematics, nor all logic, but it is somewhat beauty and poetry.
