Two qualities

When I get to feeling low in my mind about my work, say when rejection slips are darkening the sky like passenger pigeons, I can think of two things I found in the Freeman/Watts papers in D.C. The first is something Egas Moniz wrote to Walter Freeman a few years before his death:

"My dear Professor Freeman: see only in all my work the reflection of two qualities: persistence and courage."

He was a smart guy, Egas. The second is this:

We all save them, I guess. Persistence and courage, Doctor!
