d. 7-27-1844

John Dalton, chemist and physicist, is best known for his advocacy of the atomic theory, his research into colour blindness (sometimes referred to as Daltonism), and the 200,000 meteorological observations he kept for 57 years, beginning in 1787. He also taught mathematics and chemistry.

John Dalton quote ~
• “Matter, though divisible in an extreme degree, is nevertheless not infinitely divisible. That is, there must be some point beyond which we cannot go in the division of matter. ... I have chosen the word “atom” to signify these ultimate particles.”

Mary Daly quotes ~
• “It is the creative potential itself in human beings that is the image of God.”
• “Courage is like – it's a habitus, a habit, a virtue: you get it by courageous acts. It's like you learn to swim by swimming. You learn courage by couraging.”
• “Work is a substitute "religious" experience for many workaholics.”
• “Tokenism does not change stereotypes of social systems but works to preserve them, since it dulls the revolutionary impulse.”
