Christmas... is not an external event at all, but a piece of one's home that one carries in one's heart.

There can be no happiness if the things we believe in are different from the things we do.

Tags: Happiness

To awaken quite alone in a strange town is one of the pleasantest sensations in the world.

Absence is one of the most useful ingredients of family life, and to dose it rightly is an art like any other.

Curiosity is the one thing invincible in Nature.

Few are the giants of the soul who actually feel that the human race is their family circle.

Pain and fear and hunger are effects of causes which can be foreseen and known: but sorrow is a debt which someone else makes for us.

Tags: Fear, Pain, Someone

The great and almost only comfort about being a woman is that one can always pretend to be more stupid than one is and no one is surprised.

Tags: Great, Stupid, Woman

If we are strong, and have faith in life and its richness of surprises, and hold the rudder steadily in our hands. I am sure we will sail into quiet and pleasent waters for our old age.

An external electric field, meeting it and passing through it, affects the negative as much as the positive quanta of the atom, and pushes the former to one side, and the latter in the other direction.

It is more likely that more than a century will pass before we know the structure of the chemical atoms as thoroughly as we do our solar system.

Tags: Century, Pass, System

The emitters of the spectral series are without exception single atoms, not compounds of atoms.

Tags: Exception, Series, Single

The movement of the emitters of the spectral lines may be deduced on the basis of the Doppler principle.

Tags: May, Movement, Principle

The question of the composition of perceptible objects is one which already occupied the mind of the ancient Greeks.

Tags: Ancient, Mind, Question

A beam of luminous hydrogen canal rays has, owing to its velocity, exactly the same direction as that of the electric field in which it may be made to move.

Tags: Direction, May, Move

Along a series of lines running from longer to shorter wavelengths the effect of the electric field becomes greater as the serial numbers increase - that is, as the wavelength decreases.

Tags: Along, Greater, Longer

At the head of these new discoveries and insights comes the establishment of the facts that electricity is composed of discrete particles of equal size, or quanta, and that light is an electromagnetic wave motion.

Tags: Facts, Head, Light

By allowing the positive ions to pass through an electric field and thus giving them a certain velocity, it is possible to distinguish them from the neutral, stationary atoms.

Tags: Giving, Positive, Possible

By recognizing that the chemical atom is composed of single separable electric quanta, humanity has taken a great step forward in the investigation of the natural world.

Tags: Forward, Great, Single

For under certain conditions the chemical atoms emit light waves of a specific length or oscillation frequency - their familiar characteristic spectra - and these can come in the form of electromagnetic waves only from accelerated electric quanta.

If the experimental physicist has already done a great deal of work in this field, nevertheless the theoretical physicist has still hardly begun to evaluate the experimental material which may lead him to conclusions about the structure of the atom.

Tags: Great, May, Work

In my view the structure of the whole atom was that of an individual, with all its parts interconnected, and the emission of a spectral line appeared to me to be the result of the coherence and co-operation of several electric quanta.

Tags: Individual, Result, Whole

Many scientists will have to contribute to the solution of the great problem; they will have to follow up and measure all those phenomena in which the atomic structure is directly expressed.

Moreover, the abundance of chemical compounds and their importance in daily life hindered the chemist from investigating the question, in what does the individuality of the atoms of different elements consist.

Tags: Daily, Life, Question

The discovery of various phenomena has led to a recognition of the fact that the chemical atom is an individual which again is itself made up of several units into a selfcontained whole.

Tags: Again, Fact, Whole

The most common and most important result of them is that the nature and size of the effect on corresponding series of different elements are largely an expression of the peculiarity of their atomic structure - or, at least, of the structure of the surface.

Tags: Common, Nature, Result

The removal of an electron from the surface of an atom - that is, the ionization of the atom - means a fundamental structural change in its surface layer.

Tags: Change, Means, Surface

Thus at the beginning of 1906 it seemed to be established that the emitters of the spectral series of chemical elements are their positive atomic ions.

Tags: Beginning, Positive, Series

We can in fact first place the beam of rays of moving positive atomic ions in a plane perpendicular to the axis in which we see the spectral lines emitted by them.

Tags: Moving, Place, Positive

We have learnt through experience that when an electrical ray strikes the surface of an atom, an electron, and in some circumstances a second and even a third electron, can be detached.

Tags: Experience, Second, Third

With this in mind, for some twenty years I have set myself as my particular task the experimental investigation of the connexion between change in the structure and change in the spectra of chemical atoms.
