Admiration is a very short-lived passion that immediately decays upon growing familiar with its object, unless it be still fed with fresh discoveries, and kept alive by a perpetual succession of miracles rising into view.
Joseph Addison
After all these years, I am still involved in the process of self-discovery. It's better to explore life and make mistakes than to play it safe. Mistakes are part of the dues one pays for a full life.
Sophia Loren
All truths are easy to understand once they are discovered; the point is to discover them.
Galileo Galilei
Every fact of science was once Damned. Every invention was considered impossible. Every discovery was a nervous shock to some orthodoxy. Every artistic innovation was denounced as fraud and folly. The entire web of culture and "progress," everything on earth that is man-made and not given to us by nature, is the concrete manifestation of some man's refusal to bow to Authority. We would own no more, know no more, and be no more than the first apelike hominids if it were not for the rebellious, the recalcitrant, and the intransigent. As Oscar Wilde truly said, "Disobedience was man's Original Virtue."
Robert Anton Wilson
From error to error, one discovers the entire truth.
Sigmund Freud
I do not seek. I find.
Pablo Picasso

Oscar Wilde
I invent nothing, I rediscover.
If I have ever made any valuable discoveries, it has been due more to patient attention, than to any other talent
Isaac Newton
If scientific discovery has not been an unalloyed blessing, if it has conferred on mankind the power not only to create but also to annihilate, it has at the same time provided humanity with a supreme challenge and a supreme testing
John Fitzgerald Kennedy
It is a mortifying truth, and ought to teach the wisest of us humility, that many of the most valuable discoveries have been the result of chance rather than of contemplation, and of accident rather than of design
Charles Caleb Colton
It is very unhappy, but too late to be helped, the discovery we have made, that we exist
Ralph Waldo Emerson
Mistakes are the portals of discovery.
James Joyce
No great discovery was ever made without a bold guess
Isaac Newton
One of the advantages of being disorderly is that one is constantly making exciting discoveries.
A. A. Milne
One of the greatest discoveries a man makes, one of his greatest surprises, is to find he can do what he was afraid he couldn't
Henry Ford
People are usually more convinced by reasons they discovered themselves than by those found by others.
Blaise Pascal
Perhaps, after all, America never has been discovered. I myself would say that it has merely been detected.
Oscar Wilde
The beginning of knowledge is the discovery of something we do not understand.
Frank Herbert
The greatest discovery of my generation is that a human being can alter his life by altering his attitudes.
William James
