Hard work

(photographer unknown)

Angela Merkel, Chancellor of Germany, in Science (14 July 2006):
“ ‘People love chopping wood,’ Albert Einstein once said. ‘In this activity one immediately sees results.’

“Science policy, by contrast—like science itself—demands staying power. It requires cooperation between many different actors, the investment of considerable resources, and the courage to strike out in new directions.”
Like so many other things in life, too.
