Could someone please mail me the source of the following quotation by
Albert Szent-Gyorgi:

    "The brain is not an organ of thinking but an organ of survival,
     like claws and fangs. It is made in such a way as to make us 
     accept as truth that which is only advantage. It is an
exceptional,
     almost pathological constitution one has, if one follows thoughts
     logically through, regardless of consequences. Such people make 
     make martyrs, apostles, or scientists, and mostly end on the 
     stake, or in a chair, electric or academic."

Many thanks,

Roger B. Blumberg
