Jean Louis Agassi Quotes

Swiss-American naturalist
(1807 - 1873)

I will frankly tell you that my experience in prolonged scientific investigations convinces me that a belief in God - a God who is behind and within the chaos of vanishing points of human knowledge - adds a wonderful stimulus to the man who attempts to penetrate into the regions of the unknown.
