Essay 1

Every important discovery results from patience, perseverance and concentration - sometimes continuing for months or years - on one specific subject. A person who wants to discover a new truth must remain absorbed by that one subject, must pay no attention to any thought that is unrelated to the problem. (Adapted from Santiago Ramon y Cajal - Advice for a Young Investigator)

Assignment : Are all important discoveries the result of focusing on one subject?
