Soil Science (1916)


Specialization must follow expansion in every field of knowledge. The growing mass of facts, observations and deductions must be classified, divided and subdivided. They must be made ready for the far sweep and insight of genius, ready for those broad generalizations that will fit the scattered and apparently unrelated parts into a symmetrical design. Without this preliminary gathering and grouping of facts, a task often tedious, at times seemingly unprofitable, the progress of science would be halted and the understanding of the great laws of nature would be dimmed.” (Soil Science, 1916)
