Maria Skłodowska, meglio nota come Marie Curie , è stata una chimica e fisica polacca e in seguito francese.

Nel 1903 fu insignita del premio Nobel per la fisica per i loro studi sulle radiazioni e, nel 1911, del premio Nobel per la chimica per la sua scoperta del radio e del polonio. Marie Curie è stata l'unica donna tra i quattro vincitori di più di un Nobel e, insieme a Linus Pauling, l'unica ad averlo vinto in due aree distinte.

Marie Curie crebbe nella Polonia russa; poiché qui le donne non potevano essere ammesse agli studi superiori, si trasferì a Parigi e nel 1891 iniziò a frequentare la Sorbona, dove si laureò in fisica e matematica. Nel dicembre del 1897 iniziò a compiere degli studi sulle sostanze radioattive, che da allora rimasero al centro dei suoi interessi. Dopo la morte accidentale del marito Pierre Curie, avvenuta nel 1906, le fu concesso di insegnare nella prestigiosa università della Sorbona. Due anni più tardi le venne assegnata la cattedra di fisica generale, diventando la prima donna ad insegnare alla Sorbona.

„Humanity needs practical men, who get the most out of their work, and, without forgetting the general good, safeguard their own interests. But humanity also needs dreamers, for whom the disinterested development of an enterprise is so captivating that it becomes impossible for them to devote their care to their own material profit.“

—  Marie Curie
Context: Humanity needs practical men, who get the most out of their work, and, without forgetting the general good, safeguard their own interests. But humanity also needs dreamers, for whom the disinterested development of an enterprise is so captivating that it becomes impossible for them to devote their care to their own material profit. Without doubt, these dreamers do not deserve wealth, because they do not desire it. Even so, a well-organized society should assure to such workers the efficient means of accomplishing their task, in a life freed from material care and freely consecrated to research. As quoted in Astrophysics of the Diffuse Universe (2003) by Michael A. Dopita and Ralph S. Sutherland

„I am among those who think that science has great beauty.“

—  Marie Curie
Context: I am among those who think that science has great beauty. A scientist in his laboratory is not only a technician: he is also a child placed before natural phenomena which impress him like a fairy tale. We should not allow it to be believed that all scientific progress can be reduced to mechanisms, machines, gearings, even though such machinery also has its beauty. Neither do I believe that the spirit of adventure runs any risk of disappearing in our world. If I see anything vital around me, it is precisely that spirit of adventure, which seems indestructible and is akin to curiosity. As quoted in Madame Curie : A Biography (1937) by Eve Curie Labouisse, as translated by Vincent Sheean, p. 341 Variant translation: A scientist in his laboratory is not a mere technician: he is also a child confronting natural phenomena that impress him as though they were fairy tales.

„I am one of those who think like Nobel, that humanity will draw more good than evil from new discoveries.“
