Passion for Science
If the pursuit of understanding reflects a primal urge, the satisfaction to be gained from it is not less fundamental. The pursuit of science is a joy. An important key to success in science is the sheer love of it. This is not to say that the work is always pleasurable. It is more often a struggle, and most efforts are doomed to failure. But occasional progress is exhilarating, and leads us on.
In all its aspects, of faith, passion, and the quest for larger meaning, science may seem to resemble religion. At the deepest level, both science and religion are reflections of humanity. Where science departs from passion is in its foundation upon objective truth. This is its greatest appeal, and the reason for it all.
