There is discovery in solving every problem

A great discovery solves a great problem,
but there is a grain of discovery in the solution
of every problem. Your problem may be modest,
but if it challenges your curiosity and brings into
play your inventive facilities, and if you solve it
by your own means, you may experience the
tension and enjoy the triumph of discovery.

George Pólya, How To Solve It
