Quotes of Theodore von Karman or better to say von Sköllöskislaki Kármán Todor

Theodore von Kármán – Wikiquote

Scientists study the world as it is; engineers create the world that never has been.

Theodore von Kármán – Wikiquote

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.

* The Wind and Beyond, 1967
