I often think of the exchange Einstein had in 1919 when a cable came to 
him in Germany from Eddington informing him that his general theory of 
relativity and gravity had been confirmed. A student was present and she 
asked how he would have felt if it hadn’t been. He replied “Da kömmt mir 
halt der liebe Gott leid tun, die Theorie stimmt doch.” “I would have 
been sorry for the dear Lord—the theory is correct.”
