A Quote by Louis Pasteur on country, humanity, intelligence, knowledge, nations, science, thought, and world

Science knows no country, because knowledge belongs to humanity, and is the torch which illuminates the world. Science is the highest personification of the nation because that nation will remain the first which carries the furthest the works of thought and intelligence.

Louis Pasteur (1822 - 1895)
