Linus Pauling

Datum narození: 28. únor 1901
Datum úmrtí: 19. srpen 1994
Další jména: 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.

„The world progresses, year by year, century by century, as the members of the younger generation find out what was wrong among the things that their elders said. So you must always be skeptical — always think for yourself.“

—  Linus Pauling
1990s, Context: When an old and distinguished person speaks to you, listen to him carefully and with respect — but do not believe him. Never put your trust into anything but your own intellect. Your elder, no matter whether he has gray hair or has lost his hair, no matter whether he is a Nobel laureate — may be wrong. The world progresses, year by year, century by century, as the members of the younger generation find out what was wrong among the things that their elders said. So you must always be skeptical — always think for yourself. Linus Pauling: Scientist and Peacemaker (2001) by Clifford Mead and Thomas Hager.

„The only sane policy for the world is that of abolishing war.“

—  Linus Pauling
1940s-1960s, Nobel Lecture for The Nobel Peace Prize 1962 (11 December 1963).

„Just think of the differences today. A young person gets interested in chemistry and is given a chemical set. But it doesn't contain potassium cyanide. It doesn't even contain copper sulfate or anything else interesting because all the interesting chemicals are considered dangerous substances.“

—  Linus Pauling
1990s, Context: Just think of the differences today. A young person gets interested in chemistry and is given a chemical set. But it doesn't contain potassium cyanide. It doesn't even contain copper sulfate or anything else interesting because all the interesting chemicals are considered dangerous substances. Therefore, these budding young chemists don't get a chance to do anything engrossing with their chemistry sets. As I look back, I think it is pretty remarkable that Mr. Ziegler, this friend of the family, would have so easily turned over one-third of an ounce of potassium cyanide to me, an eleven-year-old boy. Linus Pauling In His Own Words (1995) by Barbara Marinacci, p. 29.

„We must not have a Nuclear war. We must begin to solve international disputes by the application of man's power of reason in a way that is worthy of the dignity of man.“

—  Linus Pauling
1940s-1960s, Context: We must not have a Nuclear war. We must begin to solve international disputes by the application of man's power of reason in a way that is worthy of the dignity of man. We must solve them by arbitration, negotiation, and the development of international law, the making of international agreements that will do justice to all nations and to all peoples and will benefit all nations and to all people. Now is the time to start. Debating Edward Teller, in The Nuclear Bomb Tests...Is Fallout Overrated? : Fallout and Disarmament KQED-TV, San Francisco http://osulibrary.oregonstate.edu/specialcollections/coll/pauling/peace/papers/1958p2.1.html (20 February 1958).

„Nobody wins. Nobody benefits from destructive war of this sort and there is all of this human suffering.“

—  Linus Pauling
1990s, Context: 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." And Einstein was 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 " Interview at Big Sur, California http://www.achievement.org/autodoc/printmember/pau0int-1 (11 November 1990).

„I know also that still more interesting discoveries will be made that I have not the imagination to describe — and I am awaiting them, full of curiosity and enthusiasm.“

—  Linus Pauling
1940s-1960s, Context: Science cannot be stopped. Man will gather knowledge no matter what the consequences – and we cannot predict what they will be. Science will go on — whether we are pessimistic, or are optimistic, as I am. I know that great, interesting, and valuable discoveries can be made and will be made… But I know also that still more interesting discoveries will be made that I have not the imagination to describe — and I am awaiting them, full of curiosity and enthusiasm. Lecture at Yale University, "Chemical Achievement and Hope for the Future." (October 1947) Published in Science in Progress. Sixth Series. Ed. George A. Baitsell. 100-21, (1949).

„I think I think harder, think more than other people do, than other scientists.“

—  Linus Pauling
1990s, Context: I've been asked from time to time, "How does it happen that you have made so many discoveries? Are you smarter than other scientists?" And my answer has been that I am sure that I am not smarter than other scientists. I don't have any precise evaluation of my IQ, but to the extent that psychologists have said that my IQ is about 160, I recognize that there are one hundred thousand or more people in the United States that have IQs higher than that. So I have said that I think I think harder, think more than other people do, than other scientists. That is, for years, almost all of my thinking was about science and scientific problems that I was interested in.

„What astonished me was the very low toxicity of a substance that has such very great physiological power.“

—  Linus Pauling
1990s, Context: What astonished me was the very low toxicity of a substance that has such very great physiological power. A little pinch, 5 mg, every day, is enough to keep a person from dying of pellagra, but it is so lacking in toxicity that ten thousand times as much can be taken without harm. Statement about vitamin B3, (either niacin or niacinamide), in How to Live Longer and Feel Better (1986), Avon Books, , p. 24.

„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."“

—  Linus Pauling
1990s, … The twenty-five percent is for error. Pauling's reply to an audience question about his ethical system, following his lecture circa 1961 at Monterey Peninsula College, in Monterey, California.

„I have always wanted to know as much as possible about the world.“

—  Linus Pauling
1990s, Linus Pauling In His Own Words (1995) by Barbara Marinacci ISBN 0684813874.

„If you want to have good ideas you must have many ideas. Most of them will be wrong, and what you have to learn is which ones to throw away.“

—  Linus Pauling
1990s, As quoted by Francis Crick in his presentation "The Impact of Linus Pauling on Molecular Biology" http://oregonstate.edu/dept/Special_Collections/subpages/ahp/1995symposium/crick.html (1995).
