Thomas Henry Huxley about disease (“The Advance of Science in the Last Half-Century”, 1887) - Two centuries ago England was devastated by the plague; cleanliness and common sense were enough to free us from its ravages. One century since, small-pox was almost as great a scourge; science, though working empirically, and almost in the dark, has reduced that evil to relative insignificance.
