             Subject: Query for HUMANIST on source of quotation


    I am trying to identify the source of the following quotation,
    which I recall only approximately.

            Science today is the study of the very large,
            the very small, the very fast and the very slow.

    Were I to hazard a guess, I would attribute the quote
    to Sir James Jeans. However, perusal of his books,
    such as I have in my library (together with other
    books likely to contain this quote), as well as
    searches of quotation databases and a GOOGLE search
    of the Web have turned up nothing.

    I may well be misattributing the quote to Jeans.

    Can you help?
