Dmitri Mendeleev quotes (18)

Certain characteristic properties of elements can be foretold from their atomic weights.
Dmitri Mendeleev   Category:

Elements which are similar as regards their chemical properties have atomic weights which are either of nearly the same value (eg. Pt, Ir, Os) or which increase regularly (eg. K, Ru, Cs).
Dmitri Mendeleev   Category:

I have achieved an inner freedom.
Dmitri Mendeleev   Category:

I want you to have this feeling too - it is my moral responsibility to help you achieve this inner freedom.
Dmitri Mendeleev   Category:

It is the function of science to discover the existence of a general reign of order in nature and to find the causes governing this order. And this refers in equal measure to the relations of man - social and political - and to the entire universe as a whole.
Dmitri Mendeleev   Category:

No law of nature, however general, has been established all at once; its recognition has always been preceded by many presentiments.
Dmitri Mendeleev   Category:

No one nor anything can silence me.
Dmitri Mendeleev   Category:

Pleasures flit by - they are only for yourself; work leaves a mark of long-lasting joy, work is for others.
Dmitri Mendeleev   Category:

The elements which are the most widely diffused have small atomic weights.
Dmitri Mendeleev   Category:

The elements, if arranged according to their atomic weights, exhibit an apparent periodicity of properties.
Dmitri Mendeleev   Category:

The establishment of a law, moreover, does not take place when the first thought of it takes form, or even when its significance is recognised, but only when it has been confirmed by the results of the experiment.
Dmitri Mendeleev   Category:

The magnitude of the atomic weight determines the character of the element, just as the magnitude of the molecule determines the character of a compound body.
Dmitri Mendeleev   Category:

The most all penetrating spirit before which will open the possibility of tilting not tables, but planets, is the spirit of free human inquiry. Believe only in that.
Dmitri Mendeleev   Category:

There exists everywhere a medium in things, determined by equilibrium.
Dmitri Mendeleev   Category:

There is nothing in this world that I fear to say.
Dmitri Mendeleev   Category:

We could live at the present day without a Plato, but a double number of Newtons is required to discover the secrets of nature, and to bring life into harmony with the laws of nature.
Dmitri Mendeleev   Category:

We must expect the discovery of many as yet unknown elements-for example, elements analogous to aluminum and silicon- whose atomic weight would be between 65 and 75.
Dmitri Mendeleev   Category:

Work, look for peace and calm in work: you will find it nowhere else.
Dmitri Mendeleev   Category: Work
