Science does not make claim to any country, for knowledge is the heritage of humanity, the torch which lights the world

I am utterly convinced that science and peace will triumph against 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
