When Scientists Give Up

"Federal funding for biomedical research has declined by more than 20 percent in the past decade. There are far more scientists competing for grants than there is money to support them.

That crunch is forcing some people out of science altogether, either because they can’t get research funding at all or, in [Ian] Glomski’s case, because the rat race has simply become too unpleasant.”

“Intelligent, thinking people could take things like this in their stride, just as they took the larger absurdities of deadly dull jobs in the city and deadly dull homes in the suburbs. Economic circumstances might force you to live in this environment, but the important thing was to keep from being contaminated. The important thing, always, was to remember who you were.” ― Richard Yates, Revolutionary Road

"In Ukraine, they say that every man must do three things to fulfill his duty: plant a tree, have a child, and build a house. I planted a tree in grade school, I had a daughter fourteen years ago, but with how the economy has been, I’m starting to fear that I’ll never have the money to build a house.""What was the happiest moment you ever spent with your daughter?""I taught her to walk on a small playground near our house. I’d hold onto her hands and walk her around slowly. She was laughing so hard, and she was making noises the entire time, I could sense she was trying to tell me something.""What do you think she was trying to tell you?""Just how happy she was to be there with me."

When Your Prey’s in a Hole and You Don’t Have a Pole, Use a Moray
“Redouan Bshary is best known for studying cleaner wrasse—tiny underwater hygienists that pick parasites from much larger fish, like the roving coral grouper. In 2006, Bshary decided to follow one of the groupers to see whether it sought the services of several cleaners in a row. Instead, he saw something wholly unexpected. The groupers repeatedly swam up to giant moray eels and made a vigorous head-shaking signal. It was a call to arms—a signal that meant “Hunt with me”.
The eels respond by swimming off with the groupers. They can slink through crevices and flush out hidden prey, while the groupers are lethal in open water. When they hunt together, little fish have nowhere to flee.”

"I no longer have patience for certain things, not because I’ve become arrogant, but simply because I reached a point in my life where I do not want to waste more time with what displeases me or hurts me. I have no patience for cynicism, excessive criticism, and demands of any nature. I have lost the will to please those who do not like me, to love those who do not love me, and to smile at those who do not want to smile at me. I no longer spend a single minute on those who lie or want to manipulate. I decided not to coexist anymore with pretense, hypocrisy, dishonesty, and cheap praise. I do not tolerate selective erudition nor academic arrogance. I do not adjust either to popular gossiping. I hate conflict and comparisons. I believe in a world of opposites and that’s why I avoid people with rigid and inflexible personalities. In friendship I dislike the lack of loyalty and betrayal. I do not get along with those who do not know how to give a compliment or word of of encouragement. exaggerations bore me and I have difficulty accepting those who do not like animals. and on top of everything, I have no patience for anyone who does not deserve my patience."
