Invention versus Discovery:

"Scientific truth is universal, because it is only discovered by the human brain and not made by it, as art is."
Konrad Lorenz

"Invention is quite different from discovery. When we say that someone discovered a thing, we mean that it already existed beforehand: it was just not well-known - for example, America before Columbus. But when someone invents a thing - gunpowder, for example - that thing was not known at all before the artist who made it."
Immanuel Kant
