“The closer you look the more magical and magnificent and mysterious something is. It's our problem that we don't look close enough, not the problem of the universe, not the problem of science and chemistry that we don't look close enough.....but when we do look close enough and when we come to appreciate what the chemistry symbolizes, what in fact it is.....then we are always brought down into mystery.”
-Bill Mitchell, 1947-2007
