9781330208601: Heroes of Science Chemists (Classic Reprint)

Excerpt from Heroes of Science Chemists

"The discoveries of great men never leave us; they are immortal; they contain those eternal truths which survive the shock of empires, outlive the struggles of rival creeds, and witness the decay of successive religions." - Buckle.

"He who studies Nature has continually the exquisite pleasure of discerning or half discerning and divining laws; regularities glimmer through an appearance of confusion, analogies between phenomena of a different order suggest themselves and set the imagination in motion; the mind is haunted with the sense of a vast unity not yet discoverable or nameable. There is food for contemplation which never runs short; you gaze at an object which is always growing clearer, and yet always, in the very act of growing clearer, presenting new mysteries." - The Author of "Ecce Homo."

"Je lânger ich lebe, desto mehr verlern' ich das Gelernte, nämlich die Systeme." - Jean Paul Richter.
