* Random quote

The popular stereotype of the researcher is that of a skeptic and a pessimist. Nothing could be further from the truth! Scientists must be optimists at heart, in order to block out the incessant chorus of those who say: It cannot be done.
~Academician Prokhor Zakharov @ University Commencement
