Charles Darwin

Darwin

“About thirty years ago there was much talk that geologists ought only to observe and not theorize; and I well remember someone saying that at this rate a man might as well go into a gravel-pit and count the stones and describe the colors…how odd it is that anyone would not see that all observation must be for or against some view, if it is to be of any service.”

Charles Darwin, letter to Fawcett, 18 September 1861

I’m a geologist by training, so you might see a few of these.
