George Porter Quotes

7 George Porter quotes:

"It is a joyous occasion for a scientist when the subject which interests him most is recognised by the highest honour that the world can bestow."

"It is not only my laboratory and my place of work but also my home, so that on the 30th October I was able to share my happiness immediately with my students and collaborators and, at the same time, with my wife and family."
"We are rewarded for work the very essence of which is that we were so impatient that we spent only a millionth of a second over an experiment."
"Science and Literature are splendid, and it is really to science and literature themselves that this distinguished company pays its homage."
"Tonight I should like to thank all those who have shared my work and to acknowledge the debt that I owe to my wife whose encouragement to put research before all other things has been a great strength to me."
