Maurice Wilkins: I don't give a damn about Pauling making, well, an ass of himself, you might say, in some ways. I mean, people like that are big enough and it doesn't matter. The general rule is if you're not prepared to make mistakes, you're not going to make much progress. And so I think, in a way, this was a sign of him being a big man.
