Famous quotes containing the words molecule and/or water:

    We can come up with a working definition of life, which is what we did for the Viking mission to Mars. We said we could think in terms of a large molecule made up of carbon compounds that can replicate, or make copies of itself, and metabolize food and energy. So that’s the thought: macrocolecule, metabolism, replication.
    Cyril Ponnamperuma (b. 1923)

    I think of the nestling fallen into the deep grass,
    The turtle gasping in the dusty rubble of the highway,
    The paralytic stunned in the tub, and the water rising,—
    All things innocent, hapless, forsaken.
    Theodore Roethke (1908–1963)
