Here’s my favourite quote of the day, fresh from the Quote Monster:

As an adolescent I aspired to lasting fame, I craved factual certainty, and I thirsted for a meaningful vision of human life—so I became a scientist. This is like becoming an archbishop so you can meet girls.
M. Cartmill

It’s also like becoming a scientist so you can meet girls. (Let’s face it, at least archbishops get to meet little boys.)
