French microbiologist, chemist, pioneer of the "Germ theory of disease", and inventor of the process of Pasteurization.
Louis Pasteur
Science knows no country, because knowledge belongs to humanity, and is the torch which illuminates the world. Science is the highest personification of the nation because that nation will remain the first which carries the furthest the works of thought and intelligence.
Pasteur quotes
The more I know, the more nearly is my faith that of the Breton peasant. Could I but know all I would have the faith of a Breton peasant woman.
Pasteur
Posterity will one day laugh at the foolishness of modern materialistic philosophers. The more I study nature, the more I stand amazed at the work of the Creator. I pray while I am engaged at my work in the laboratory.




Pasteur Louis quotes
Science brings men nearer to God.
Pasteur Louis
There does not exist a category of science to which one can give the name applied science. There are sciences and the applications of science, bound together as the fruit of the tree which bears it.
Louis Pasteur quotes
Do not let yourself be tainted with a barren skepticism.
Louis Pasteur
Dans les champs de l'observation le hasard ne favorise que les esprits préparés.
Pasteur Louis quotes
I am on the edge of mysteries and the veil is getting thinner and thinner.
Pasteur
A bottle of wine contains more philosophy than all the books in the world.
Pasteur Louis
The Greeks have given us one of the most beautiful words of our language, the word "enthusiasm" — a God within. The grandeur of the acts of men are measured by the inspiration from which they spring. Happy is he who bears a God within.
Louis Pasteur
A little science estranges men from God, but much science leads them back to Him.




Louis Pasteur quotes
I am utterly convinced that Science and Peace will triumph over Ignorance and War, that nations will eventually unite not to destroy but to edify, and that the future will belong to those who have done the most for the sake of suffering humanity.
Louis Pasteur
Let me tell you the secret that has led me to my goal. My strength lies solely in my tenacity.
Pasteur quotes
Pasteur originally conceived the idea of germs and of destroying them. Although this started as a personal thing, it has mushroomed into DDT, killing beetles and worms, resulting in food contamination, much sickness, and trouble. Although he is regarded as hero by modern medicine, Pasteur will be treated in much the same way as a warmonger when he is judged in the spiritual world.
Pasteur Louis
It is surmounting difficulties that makes heroes.
Pasteur Louis quotes
My plan of study is traced for this coming year... I am hoping to develop it shortly in the most successful manner... I think that I have already told you that I am on the verge of mysteries, and that the veil which covers them is getting thinner and thinner. The nights seem to me too long, yet I do not complain... I am often scolded by Mme. Pasteur, but I console her by telling her that I shall lead her to fame.
Louis Pasteur
He who proclaims the existence of the Infinite, and none can avoid it — accumulates in that affirmation more of the supernatural than is to be found in all the miracles of all the religions; for the notion of the Infinite presents that double character that forces itself upon us and yet is incomprehensible. When this notion seizes upon our understanding we can but kneel ... I see everywhere the inevitable expression of the Infinite in the world; through it the supernatural is at the bottom of every heart. The idea of God is a form of the idea of the Infinite. As long as the mystery of the infinite weighs on human thought, temples will be erected for the worship of the Infinite, whether God is called Brahma, Allah, Jehovah, or Jesus; and on the pavement of these temples, men will be seen kneeling, prostrated, annihilated by the thought of the Infinite.
Louis Pasteur quotes
Blessed is he who carries within himself a God, an ideal, and who obeys it: ideal of art, ideal of science, ideal of the gospel virtues, therein lie the springs of great thoughts and great actions; they all reflect light from the Infinite.
Louis Pasteur
L' univers est dissymetrique...
Pasteur Louis
One does not ask of one who suffers: What is your country and what is your religion? One merely says: You suffer, that is enough for me...
