Science Quotes by Christiaan Eijkman (1 quote)
Simplex non sigillum veri.
Simplicity is no sign of truth.
— Christiaan Eijkman
Eijkmans motto, and the title of a lecture he gave late in his career. As stated in Alfred Jay Bollet, in Plagues & Poxes: The Rise and Fall of Epidemic Disease (1987), 77. This contrasts with the much-quoted motto of Herman Boerhaave, simplex sigillum veri (simplicity is the sign of truth).
