The opinion of others

Irrtum verläßt uns nie, doch ziehet ein höher Bedürfnis
Immer den strebenden Geist leise zur Wahrheit hinan.

- Johann Wolfgang von Goethe, 1800

Ich habe immer gedacht, das Wertvollste an der Einrichtung der deutschen Universitäten ist die akademische Freiheit, die dem Dozenten in keiner Weise vorschreibt, was er lehrt, und dem Studenten die Wahl der Vorlesungen überläßt, ohne viel Aufsicht und Kontrolle. Ihre neuen Statuten scheinen das alles aufzuheben und durch genaue Vorschriften zu ersetzen. Mir täte es leid, wenn die alte Freiheit aufhörte.

- Albert Einstein, 1918.

Zitat aus Albert Einstein, Max Born: Briefwechsel 1916 - 1955; Kommentar von M. Born zu A. Einsteins Brief vom 7.9.1944.

Wie es auch die größte Freude macht, in solchem Zeitpunkt des intensivsten Aufschwungs der eigenen wissenschaftlichen Disziplin zu leben, wo es eine Überfülle von Aufgaben gibt, die sich der Bearbeitung darbieten, so wird dadurch doch eine Hast in der wissenschaftlichen Forschung provoziert, welche der beschaulichen Ruhe, mit der noch vor wenigen Jahrzehnten mancher Gelehrte seine Probleme im Laboratorium, am Schreibtisch und in freier Natur ausreifen lassen konnte, diametral entgegensteht, nicht immer zum Vorteil der Bearbeitung, und jeder, der an dieser Entwicklung auch nur zu kleinem Teil helfen will, muß sich die ernste Frage vorlegen, an welcher Ecke des Gebäudes er selbst Hand anlegen kann, falls es nutzbringend zu werden versprechen soll.

- Paul Drude, 1906.

Zitat aus seiner Antrittsrede, gehalten im Plenum der Preußischen Akademie der Wissenschaften am 28. Juni 1906.
