Louis Pasteur Once Said…

Louis Pasteur was born on December 27, 1822 and died on September 28, 1895. Pasteur was a French biologist, microbiologist, and chemist renowned for his discoveries of the principles of vaccination, microbial fermentation, and pasteurization.

Science knows no country, because knowledge belongs to humanity, and is the torch which illuminates the world. – Louis Pasteur

Pasteur was a man of science and used that knowledge he had along with experimentation and creation to come up with fermentation and pasteurization and his work that came from his research into immunology and vaccinations has saved countless people. I agree if there is anything we have learned about science is that there isn’t just one place but the entire world that it belongs to. Scientific studies may be competitive but as humans we should appreciate all forms of science, no matter where it came from, who developed it and be thankful that it exists. I know I am, I do immunology because of my allergies, I’m injected with what I’m allergic to in order to build my immunity and I’m telling you that it’s one of the best things I’ve done for myself.

Let me tell you the secret that has led me to my goal. My strength lies solely in my tenacity. – Louis Pasteur

There is something to say about someone that doesn’t give up on things. Good things can happen in life if you don’t give up trying. We’ve all heard the saying if at first you don’t succeed, then try again. It’s true, this is how we all learn is by doing and reading and listening. It all comes together and keeps us moving forward in our lives and the best lesson I’ve been taught is to not stop trying.

A bottle of wine contains more philosophy than all the books in the world. – Louis Pasteur

I’m not so sure about it containing philosophy but it sure can make people philosophical. Perhaps he’s talking about the process of making wine and how he changed it with the pasteurization. Pasteur was said to be fearless as he helped some up for a vaccine for rabies and with that his studies with germs led to sensitization of instruments and hands leading to fewer post surgical infections and death. Old science and new science have shaped our world and how we live in it.
