Science Quotes by Ernest von Meyer (1 quote)
It is not merely as an investigator and discoverer, but as a high-principled and unassuming man, that Scheele merits our warmest admiration. His aim and object was the discovery of truth. The letters of the man reveal to us in the most pleasant way his high scientific ideal, his genuinely philosophic temper, and his simple mode of thought. It is the truth alone that we desire to know, and what joy there is in discovering it! With these words he himself characterizes his own efforts.
