Peter Mitchell

English biochemist, Nobel Prize in Chemistry, 1979

Meanwhile, the originator of a theory may have a very lonely time, especially if his colleagues find his views of nature unfamiliar, and difficult to appreciate.More Peter Mitchell quotes [07/26/2011 06:07:07]
Reason can be used only when looking critically back.More Peter Mitchell quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]

Finally, to the theme of the respiratory chain, it is especially noteworthy that David Kellin's chemically simple view of the respiratory chain appears now to have been right all along-and he deserves great credit for having been so reluctant to become involved when the energy-rich chemical intermediates began to be so fashionable. This reminds me of the aphorism: 'The obscure we see eventually, the completely apparent takes longer'.More Peter Mitchell quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
