Inspirational Quote of the Day: One by Sir Alexander Fleming

I always pull the biographic excerpts for the quotes from Wikipedia because there are no annoying ads and no annoying and destructive viruses on that site.


Sir Alexander Fleming FRS FRSE FRCS[1] (6 August 1881 – 11 March 1955) was a Scottish biologist, pharmacologist and botanist. His best-known discoveries are the enzyme lysozyme in 1923 and the world’s first antibiotic substance benzylpenicillin (Penicillin G) from the mould Penicillium notatum in 1928, for which he shared the Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine in 1945 with Howard Florey and Ernst Boris Chain.[3][4][5] He wrote many articles on bacteriology, immunology, and chemotherapy.

Fleming was knighted for his scientific achievements in 1944.[6] In 1999, he was named in Time magazine’s list of the 100 Most Important People of the 20th century. In 2002, he was chosen in the BBC’s television poll for determining the 100 Greatest Britons, and in 2009, he was also voted third “greatest Scot” in an opinion poll conducted by STV, behind only Robert Burns and William Wallace.

  1. Common sense…but send it to Trump anyway. It might make him feel better others understand the predicament he’s in.

  2. Anyone can START something, but to COMPLETE it, Fleming says, means having to “cooperate” with “others.” Those “others” are probably (((you know who))) as Henry Ford found out the hard way.
