Geology: the best job there is

by Instant Noodle


Sir Charles Lyell, according to a correspondent of the Daily Telegraph, is credited with the saying that there are three things necessary for a geologist: the first is to travel; the second is to travel; and the third, also, is to travel. This seems to mean that your geologist must travel, travel, travel over the face of the earth in order to be enabled to explore its interior.

Awesome quote there from Charles Lyell.

(January 1872)
