Quote of the day

For a scientist must indeed be freely imaginative and yet skeptical, creative and yet a critic. There is a sense in which he must be free, but another in which his thought must be very precisely regimented; there is poetry in science, but also a lot of bookkeeping. 
~ Sir Peter B. Medawar, courtesy of The Skeptics Guide to the Universe podcast
