Art and Science

How often people speak of art and science as though they were
two entirely different things, with no interconnection. An artist is
emotional, they think, and uses only his intuition; he sees all at
once and has no need of reason. A scientist is cold, they think,
and uses only his reason; he argues carefully step by step, and
needs no imagination. That is all wrong. The true artist is quite
rational as well as imaginative and knows what he is doing; if he
does not, his art suffers. The true scientist is quite imaginative
as well as rational, and sometimes leaps to solutions where
reason can follow only slowly; if he does not, his science suffers.
