I like your quotation (see http://www.quotationspage.com/quote/27131.html )

When von Szent-Gyorgyi said "A discovery is said to be...", he is doing a reference to Pasteur who said so in 1854 : "The chance supports only the prepared spirits" ("Le hasard ne favorise que les esprits préparés")
See http://www-personal.umich.edu/~maxwelld/Pasteur.et.hasard.html"> source in french

It is what we call now serendipity.
