Who Doesn’t Like Quotes?

Not one day passes by without receiving a friendly e-mail that ends with a quote, and I like that. It is a simple statement that says a lot about the sender. When one communicates in person, that statement is in our speech, our appearance; but when we quickly write a memo/e-mail, a quote at the end can simply be a "nice touch."

"Facts do not cease to exist because they are ignored," (Aldous Huxley) is one of my favorites. I have kept this within sight for many years, and find it relevant in my work everyday. It gives me the will to question what I do not understand.

In his recent special topic article published in Pure and Applied Chemistry and featured in this issue, Professor Erhardt reminds us of a saying of mathematician David Hilbert that dates from 1900: "Who of us would not be glad to lift the veil behind which the future lies hidden; to cast a glance at the next advances of our science and at the secrets of its development during future centuries?" With these words providing a preview, Professor Paul W. Erhardt gives us a glance into the future of medicinal chemistry. This exciting field, which is continuously redefining itself, is presented here with critical insight that highlights new and emerging concepts. "Cast a glance" and read more.
