George Wald

American biochemist, Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine 1967
We have fallen in love with the body. That's that thing that looks back at us from the mirror. That's the repository of that lovely identity that you keep chasing all your life.More George Wald quotes [07/16/2011 04:07:39]
It's not good enough to give it tender, loving care, to supply it with breakfast foods, to buy it expensive educations. Those things don't mean anything unless this generation has a future. And we're not sure that it does.More George Wald quotes [07/16/2011 04:07:13]

Since we have had a history, men have pursued an ideal of immortality.More George Wald quotes [07/16/2011 04:07:44]
I have often had cause to feel that my hands are cleverer than my head. That is a crude way of characterizing the dialectics of experimentation. When it is going well, it is like a quiet conversation with Nature. One asks a question and gets an answer, then one asks the next question and gets the next answer. An experiment is a device to make Nature speak intelligibly. After that, one only has to listen.More George Wald quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
