Curric Vitae

*To succeed in our world it is not enough to be stupid, you must also be well-mannered.
Voltaire 1694-1778
*Success is the ability to go from one failure to another with no loss of enthusiasm.
Winston Churchill 1874-1965

"Heaven" - is what I cannot reach!
The apple on the Tree -
Provided it do hopeless-hang -
That "Heaven" is - to Me! Emily E Dickinson 1830-1886

מן המקום שבו אנו צודקים
לא יצמחו לעולם
פרחים באביב.

המקום שבו אנו צודקים
הוא קשה ורמוס
כמו חצר.

אבל ספקות ואהבות
עושים את העולם לתחוח
כמו חפרפרת, כמו חריש.

ולחישה תשמע במקום
שבו היה הבית
אשר נחרב.

               יהודה עמיחי




Chem BondTheor. Methods

*In theory there is no difference between theory and practice but in practice there is. Jan L.A. van de Snepscheut 1953-1994

Theoretical Chemistry
*Any attempt to employ mathematical methods in the study of chemical questions must be considered profoundly irrational and contrary to the spirit of chemistry.
*If mathematical analysis should ever hold a prominent place in chemistry (an aberration which is happily almost impossible) it would occasion a rapid and widespread degeneration of that science.
Auguste Comte, The Positive Philosophy, Book I (1830)
