Littlewood, John E.
Most of the best work starts in hopeless muddle and floundering, sustained on the 'smell' that something is there.
In Bela Bollabas (ed.) Littlewood's Miscellany Academic Life (p. 144)
Gauge your work by its truth to nature, not by the plaudits it receives from man. In the end the truth will prevail and though you may never live to see it, your work will be recognized after you are gone.
In William Graves Hoyt Lowell and Mars Chapter 15 (p. 300)
