PhD Supervision

Steve Pischke



Research is the act of going up alleys to see if they are blind - Plutarch

There is nothing like looking, if you want to find something. You certainly usually find something, if you look, but it is not always quite the something you were after - J.R. Tolkien

That's the nature of research - you don't know what in hell you're doing - Doc Edgerton

If it was going to work the first time around we wouldn't call it re-search - Steve Pischke

It is a good morning exercise for the research scientist to discard a pet hypothesis every day before breakfast. It keeps him young - Konrad Lorenz
