I think there is that very basic yearning for something

I think there is that very basic yearning for something or someone to be looking after us, for there to be a framework holding the universe together that is benign and intelligent. We’re not going to get rid of that; it’s just too scary to be that molecule flying around briefly in a vacuum.
The animal world seizes its food in masses little and big, and often gorges itself with it, but the vegetable, through the agency of the solvent power of water, absorbs its nourishment molecule by molecule.
There is neither spirit nor matter in the world. The stuff of the universe is spirit-matter. No other substance but this could have produced the human molecule.
I was criticized for saying that Pfizer doesn’t know how to make a molecule right.
I will never use a substitute for butter. Margarine is one molecule away from eating plastic. If I’m going to eat that type of food, it’s going to be the real deal.
There’s a joy in having the molecule of an idea, then testing it in front of audiences at secret shows that people only know about the night before.
It now seems certain that the amino acid sequence of any protein is determined by the sequence of bases in some region of a particular nucleic acid molecule.
As is known, the sugar molecule as it passes through lactic acid can easily be split by purely chemical means.
Eduard Buchner
The more the relationships of the nitrogen-rich substances to the cell nucleus were recognized, the more the question of the arrangement of the nitrogen and carbon atoms in the molecule came to stand out.
Albrecht Kossel
We may say that a basic substance is one which has a lone pair of electrons which may be used to complete the stable group of another atom, and that an acid is one which can employ a lone pair from another molecule in completing the stable group of one of its own atoms.
Gilbert Newton Lewis
The detailed geometry of the coenzyme molecule as a whole is fascinating in its complexity.
Dorothy Hodgkin
I write everything I do. On the average, it takes you about sixty months from the first molecule of an idea to it being in front of an audience. I’m actually somebody that creates their own stuff.
Our femtosecond snapshots can examine a molecule at discrete instants in time.
There’s a molecule inside of you that is connected to everything – every person, every energy, every thing. You look for it, and when you find it, then you allow it to magnify and grow and be the dominating chemistry inside of you.
When we first isolated PD-1, we didn’t know what the function of this molecule would be. But while we were working on it for almost 10 years, we realized this is a very important molecule to regulate the immune system.
Calling on each molecule one by one? No way. I just told all of them to be quietexcept for a selected few.
Stefan Hell
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.
Dmitri Mendeleev
The more we understand what happens in living cells, the more incredibly powerful you realize things can be when they work from the bottom up, by interaction of one molecule and another.
The problem is how do molecules react. Because if you want to transform a molecule into something useful or something you’re interested in, it helps a lot to understand the structure. That means you can explore much more complicated systems, much more complicated reactions.
William Lipscomb
When I started in the field, aging research was the backwater of biology. The idea that you could find a molecule that would prevent many diseases at once was considered impossible.
As soon as chemists have a definite conception of the internal structure of the molecule of an organic compound, they are able to tackle the task of producing these substances by artificial methods, i.e. by synthesis, as we call it.
Otto Wallach
According to the kinetic theory of gases, the mean kinetic energy of a molecule is a measure of absolute temperature.
Wilhelm Wien
We found that CAS9 has the ability to make a double-stranded break in DNA at sites that are programmed by a small RNA molecule. What was so important was that we could really show how the CAS9 protein worked.
Jennifer Doudna
One of the advantages of something like Slack is that I tap on the app icon, and it’s just the people at my company and just the people I work with. There’s a strong boundary there which aids in comprehension. It’s one less molecule of glucose in my brain to manage it all.
It’s an electrical network, isn’t it? It’s molecules in space… and they’re linked to each other electrically. Which is to say, one end of a soap molecule is attracted to a nearby water molecule electrically. The bubble is this network. The whole thing is inter-dependent.
Climate change is a global issue – from the point of view of the Earth‘s climate, a molecule of CO2 emitted in Bejing is the same as a molecule emitted in Sydney.
I tell my students to try to know molecules, so well that when they have some question involving molecules, they can ask themselves, What would I do if I were that molecule?
Make the film that you love. When you find a film that you love, every molecule of your being will be moving in the direction of making the best film you can possibly make. This should be your default mode of operation.
I love making stuff. There’s a joy in having the first molecule of an idea, then testing it in front of audiences at secret shows that people only know about the day before. I videotape those, study them, enjoy being in the character and figuring out the movie.
The laws of physics should allow us to arrange things molecule by molecule and even atom by atom, and at some point it was inevitable that we would develop a technology that would let us do this.
Carbon nanotubes are amazing because they’re really good electrical conductors, yet they are only a few atoms in diameter. You can make transistors out of them in the same way you can with silicon. At Berkeley, we made the narrowest device anybody had ever made. It was basically a single molecule.
Paul McEuen
The prize was really for the molecule. In 1962, Osamu Shimomura discovered a protein in a jellyfish that caused it to glow bright green. With colleagues, 30 years later, I was able to insert this G.F.P. gene into bacteria and make them turn green.
As analytical pharmacologists, what we are allowed to see of a new molecule’s properties is totally dependent on the techniques of bioassay we use.
James Black
