Marie Curie (1876-1934), a Polish-French experimental scientist, became known worldwide for her scientific discoveries in the field of physics and chemistry, which played an essential role in the scientific revolution. And her merits did not go unnoticed by the scientific community - Marie Curie became the first woman to receive the Nobel Prize (for research on radioactivity), and the first person in history to receive the Nobel Prize twice. In addition, Maria was the first female professor at the University of Paris. From the above, it is easy to understand that she had extraordinary talent and thinking. And this at a time when the opinion of women was not listened to, which made her career even more impressive.


On science and life from the first woman in history to receive the Nobel Prize


Such outstanding personalities are always of great interest, so if you want to know more about Mary's way of thinking, not only as a scientist but also as a person, read the quotes that Bemorepanda has collected below.

14. “My husband and I were so closely connected by our affection and common work that we spent almost all the time together.”

None of them were very long, as he was in the habit of expressing himself briefly, but they were all written in a spirit of sincerity and with an obvious desire to make the one whom he wanted to have as a companion know him for who he is.



23. “Sometimes I had to stir the boiling mass for days on end with a heavy iron rod almost the same size as myself. By the end of the day, I was exhausted.

43. “Unfamiliar with Paris, I was lost in the big city, but the feeling that I live there alone, taking care of myself without anyone's help, did not depress me at all. If sometimes I felt lonely, then my usual state of mind was peace and great moral satisfaction.

50. “We believe that the substance that we have extracted from pitchblende contains a metal that has not yet been discovered, related to bismuth in its analytical properties.
