Famous quotes containing the word research:

    After all, the ultimate goal of all research is not objectivity, but truth.
    Helene Deutsch (1884–1982)

    It is a good morning exercise for a research scientist to discard a pet hypothesis every day before breakfast. It keeps him young.
    Konrad Lorenz (1903–1989)

    ... research is never completed ... Around the corner lurks another possibility of interview, another book to read, a courthouse to explore, a document to verify.
    Catherine Drinker Bowen (1897–1973)
