Gauntlet Quotes (1 quote)
The members of the department became like the Athenians who, according to the Apostle Paul, spent their time in nothing else, but either to tell or to hear some new thing. Anyone who thought he had a bright idea rushed out to try it out on a colleague. Groups of two or more could be seen every day in offices, before blackboards or even in corridors, arguing vehemently about these 'brain storms.' It is doubtful whether any paper ever emerged for publication that had not run the gauntlet of such criticism. The whole department thus became far greater than the sum of its individual members.
