Theodore von Karman
I came to realize that exaggerated concern about what others are doing can be foolish. It can paralyze effort, and stifle a good idea. One finds that in the history of science almost every problem has been worked out by someone else. This should not discourage anyone from pursuing his own path.
Karman quotes
Scientists study the world as it is; engineers create the world that never has been.
Everyone knows it takes a woman nine months to have a baby. But you Americans think if you get nine women pregnant, you can have a baby in a month.

Karman Theodore von quotes
Mr President, one does not need help going down, only going up.
