as Larry Bird in reacting to bad news.
More recently, I've really, really tried not to let success or failure in the laboratory dictate my mood. I know that the highs couldn't possibly last forever and I know (I believe? I hope?) that the lows won't either. Nevertheless, it seems every chemist has blue periods.
Readers, how do you deal with the highs and lows of research?
