Hong-Kong in 1906

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

I invincibly believe that science and peace will triumph over ignorance and war, that peoples will unite not to destroy but to edify, and that the future will belong to those who will have done the most for suffering humanity

Louis Pasteur
