Chemistry is the study of matter, but I prefer to see it as the study of change. ~Walter White in the Breaking Bad pilot
Adam Rifkin stashed this in Breaking Bad
In the Breaking Bad pilot, chemistry teacher Walter White gives this speech:
Chemistry is the study of matter, but I prefer to see it as the study of change.
Now, just think about this.
Electrons, they change their energy levels.
Molecules change their bonds.
Elements, they combine and change into compounds.
Well that's... That's all of life, right?
It's the constant, it's the cycle... It's solution, dissolution, just over and over and over.
It's growth, then decay, then transformation.
It is fascinating, really.
