The greatest discoveries have come from people who have looked at a standard situation and seen it differently.
Discovery is seeing what everybody else has seen, and thinking what nobody else has thought.
Most new discoveries are suddenly-seen things that were always there.
Langer, Suzanne K.
What is there that confers the noblest delight? What is that which swells a man's breast with pride above that which any other experience can bring to him? Discovery! To know that you are walking where none others have walked; that you are beholding what human eye has not seen before; that you are breathing a virgin atmosphere. To give birth to an idea, to discover a great thought -- an intellectual nugget, right under the dust of a field that many a brain-plough had gone over before. To find a new planet, to invent a new hinge, to find a way to make the lightning carry your messages. To be the first -- that is the idea.
The great discoveries are usually obvious.
A discovery is said to be an accident meeting a prepared mind.
To avoid discovery I stay on the run. To discover things for myself I stay on the run.
If a man knew anything, he would sit in a corner and be modest; but he is such an ignorant peacock, that he goes bustling up and down, and hits on extraordinary discoveries.
Ralph Waldo Emerson
The discovery of the North Pole is one of those realities which could not be avoided. It is the wages which human perseverance pays itself when it thinks that something is taking too long. The world needed a discoverer of the North Pole, and in all areas of social activity, merit was less important here than opportunity.
If we make a couple of discoveries here and there we need not believe things will go on like this for ever. Just as we hit water when we dig in the earth, so we discover the incomprehensible sooner or later.
Lichtenberg, Georg C.
