It is one of my intellectual limitations that : I cannot imagine or
accept an un-adventurous or "un-romantic" scientist.  Meaning, one that
is not inebriated and elevated by the contemplation of knowledge and the
acquisition of knowledge. The "book-keepers of science" should not be
confused with scientists.
Sorry, but that is one of my chared-raw nerves.
