Alexander Fleming (1881-1955)

“It is the lone worker who makes the first advance in a subject; the details may be worked out by a team, but the prime idea is due to enterprise, thought, and perception of an individual.”

“I have been trying to point out that in our lives chance may have an astonishing influence and, if I may offer advice to the young laboratory worker, it would be this – never to neglect an extraordinary appearance or happening.”

“One sometimes finds what one is not looking for.”

“A good gulp of hot whiskey at bedtime – it’s not very scientific but it helps.”
