What's Love Got to Do with It?

     "Anything will give up its secrets if you love it enough."              George Washington Carver

     "You learn about a thing ... by opening yourself wholeheartedly to it. You learn about a thing by loving it."                                             Barbara McClintock - Nobel prize-winning geneticist

     "The truth is, what one really needs is not Nobel prizes but love. How do you think one gets to be a Nobel laureate? Wanting love, that's how. Wanting it so bad one works all the time and ends up a Nobel laureate. It's a consolation prize.
     What matters is love."                              George Wald - Nobel prize-winning biologist from Harvard

        McClintock quote from: Jauregui A. "Epiphanies. Where Science and Miracles Meet." Atria Books, 2007.
       Wald quote from: Kornfield J. "A Path with Heart. A Guide through the Perils and Promises of Spiritual Life." Bantam Books, 1993.
