It doesn’t have to be pretty to be true. But if it’s true it’s beautiful. Truth is beautiful. And so my whole work is about what amounts to a reverence for life itself.

I heard this from an artist I follow on tumblr. Of course, he’s talking about his art, but it could equally apply to any scientist. Science is motivised by a reverence for truth and for life.
