 ‘Life is not easy for any of
  us. But what of that? We
  must have perseverance
and, above all, confidence in
 ourselves. We must believe
    that we are gifted for
  something, and that this
  thing, at whatever cost,
      must be attained.’
Marie Curie with
Albert Einstein
 ‘I am among those who think
that science has great beauty.
A scientist in his laboratory is
   not only a technician: he is
    also a child placed before
   natural phenomena which
impress him like a fairy tale.’
 ‘I have frequently been
questioned, especially by
  women, of how I could
reconcile family life with
a scientific career. Well,
   it has not been easy.’
Marie and Pierre Curie
