Další jména: Linus Carl Pauling, Лайнус Полинг

Linus Carl Pauling byl americký kvantový chemik a biochemik, podle některých názorů nejvýznamnější chemik 20. století. Byl jeden z prvních chemiků, který aplikoval tehdy novou kvantovou mechaniku v chemii, a za jeho práci na podstatě chemické vazby, jejíž vysvětlení pomocí kvantové mechaniky lze považovat za jeden z největších úspěchů této nové teorie, mu byla v roce 1954 udělena Nobelova cena za chemii. Pauling patří též k zakladatelům molekulární biologie, podílel se na objevování prostorové stavby bílkovin a významně přispěl i do řady dalších oborů, včetně anorganické a organické chemie, metalurgie, imunologie, anesteziologie, či psychologie.


„Nejlepší cesta jak mít dobrý nápad, je mít hodně nápadů.“

„I have something that I call my Golden Rule. It goes something like this: 'Do unto others twenty-five percent better than you expect them to do unto you.' … The twenty-five percent is for error.“

„Science is the search for the truth--it is not a game in which one tries to beat his opponent, to do harm to others. We need to have the spirit of science in international affairs, to make the conduct of international affairs the effort to find the right solution, the just solution of international problems, and not an effort by each nation to get the better of other nations, to do harm to them when it is possible. I believe in morality, in justice, in humanitarianism.“ Linus Pauling on Peace: A Scientist Speaks Out on Humanism and World Survival

„... I am not, however, militant in my atheism. The great English theoretical physicistis a militant atheist. I suppose he is interested in arguing about the existence of God. I am not. It was once quipped that there is no God andis his prophet.“

„I think that the formation of [DNA's] structure byandmay turn out to be the greatest developments in the field of molecular genetics in recent years.“


„I realized that more and more I was saying, 'It seems to me that we have come to the time war ought to be given up. It no longer makes sense to kill 20 million or 40 million people because of a dispute between two nations who are running things, or decisions made by the people who really are running things. It no longer makes sense. Nobody wins. Nobody benefits from destructive war of this sort and there is all of this human suffering.' Andwas saying the same thing of course. So that is when we decided — my wife and I — that first, I was pretty effective as a speaker. Second, I better start boning up, studying these other fields so that nobody could stand up and say, 'Well, the authorities say such and such '.“

„During the time thatgave me an education in the field of immunology, I discovered that he and I were thinking about the serologic problem in very different ways. He would ask, What do these experiments force us to believe about the nature of the world? I would ask, What is the most. simple and general picture of the world that we can formulate that is not ruled by these experiments? I realized that medical and biological investigators were not attacking their problems the same way that theoretical physicists do, the way I had been in the habit of doing.“
