“Science . . . is made up of mistakes, but they are mistakes which it is useful to make, because they lead little by little to the truth.” – Jules Verne
Verne, born Feb. 8, 1828, was not supposed to be a writer. Both he and his father had chosen law for him as his profession, but the draw of literary life was too great, and soon he gave up his law career to concentrate on writing. Good news for the rest of us.
