Quote of the Day (Natalie Angier, on Science As a State of Mind)

“Science is not a body of facts. Science is a state of mind. It is a way of viewing the world, of facing reality square on but taking nothing on its face. It is about attacking a problem with the most manicured of claws and tearing it down into sensible, edible pieces.” —Pulitzer Prize-winning science journalist Natalie Angier, The Canon: A Whirligig Tour of the Beautiful Basics of Science (2007)
