I am among those who think that science has great beauty. A scientist in the lab ... is also a child placed before natural phenomena which impress him/her like a fairy tale.
If I see anything vital around me, it is precisely that spirit of adventure, which seems indestructible and is akin to curiosity.
Madame Curie
