“It is not easy to convey, unless one has experienced it, the dramatic feeling of sudden enlightenment that floods the mind when the right idea finally clinches into place.”

–Francis Crick (a.k.a. Francis Harry Compton Crick, English Molecular Biologist, Biophysicist, Neuroscientist, and, in 1962, Winner of the Nobel Prize for Medicine, 1916-2004)
