Harmonious Order

"The scientist does not study nature because it is useful to do so. He studies it because he takes pleasure in it, and he takes pleasure in it because it is beautiful. If nature were not beautiful it would not be worth knowing, and life would not be worth living. I am not speaking, of course, of the beauty which strikes the senses, of the beauty of qualities and appearances. I am far from despising this, but it has nothing to do with science. What I mean is that more intimate beauty which comes from the harmonious order of its parts, and which a pure intelligence can grasp."

Henri Poincare (1854 - 1912)

I completely support the statement of Henri Poincare. Scientists research about anything just because he finds something interesting in it. The nature is so beautiful and mysterious that it increases his curiosity to know about it even more. He wants to solve all the mystery and unsolved questions. Its true that only a person with that motive could grab its true meaning.
