... and what good is a baby?More Michael Faraday quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
Now I must take you to a very interesting part of our subject-to the relation between the combustion of a candle and that living kind of combustion which goes on within us. In every one of us there is a living process of combustion going on very similar to that of a candle, and I must try to make that plain to you. For it is not merely true in a poetical sense-the relation of the life of man to a taper; and if you will follow, I think I can make this clear.More Michael Faraday quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
You will be astonished when I tell you what this curious play of carbon amounts to. A candle will burn some four, five, six, or seven hours. What, then, must be the daily amount of carbon going up into the air in the way of carbonic acid! ... Then what becomes of it? Wonderful is it to find that the change produced by respiration ... is the very life and support of plants and vegetables that grow upon the surface of the earth.More Michael Faraday quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
A centre of excellence is, by definition, a place where second class people may perform first class work.More Michael Faraday quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
But I must confess I am jealous of the term atom; for though it is very easy to talk of atoms, it is very difficult to form a clear idea of their nature, especially when compounded bodies are under consideration.More Michael Faraday quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
