It is the function of science to discover the existence of a general reign of order in nature and to find the causes governing this order. And this refers in equal measure to the relations of man - social and political - and to the entire universe as a whole.
I want you to have this feeling too - it is my moral responsibility to help you achieve this inner freedom.
There exists everywhere a medium in things, determined by equilibrium.
There is nothing in this world that I fear to say.
No law of nature, however general, has been established all at once; its recognition has always been preceded by many presentiments.
The elements, if arranged according to their atomic weights, exhibit an apparent periodicity of properties.
The magnitude of the atomic weight determines the character of the element, just as the magnitude of the molecule determines the character of a compound body.
The elements which are the most widely diffused have small atomic weights.
Work, look for peace and calm in work: you will find it nowhere else.
We could live at the present day without a Plato, but a double number of Newtons is required to discover the secrets of nature, and to bring life into harmony with the laws of nature.
No one nor anything can silence me.
Pleasures flit by - they are only for yourself; work leaves a mark of long-lasting joy, work is for others.
Certain characteristic properties of elements can be foretold from their atomic weights.
Elements which are similar as regards their chemical properties have atomic weights which are either of nearly the same value (eg. Pt, Ir, Os) or which increase regularly (eg. K, Ru, Cs).
The establishment of a law, moreover, does not take place when the first thought of it takes form, or even when its significance is recognised, but only when it has been confirmed by the results of the experiment.
