Hubble Constant Quotes (2 quotes)
Im very intense in my work. At any given moment, I think I know the answer to some problem, and that Im right. Since science is the only self-correcting human institution I know of, you should not be frightened to take an extreme stand, if that causes the stand to be examined more thoroughly than it might be if you are circumspect. Ive always been positive about the value of the Hubble constant, knowing full well that it probably isnt solved.
[On research] Its got to be fun. I don't think anybody should tell you that hes slogged his way through 25 years on a problem and there's only one reward at the end, and that's the value of the Hubble constant. Thats a bunch of hooey. The reward is learning all the wonderful properties of the things that dont work.
