66,436.  The electron microscope is an instrument capable of enlarging or magnifying of the order of 100,000x.  From such minute studies it is possible to make models ... of cells with the outer skin removed.  (Cell & Microscope)  What is Life? BBC 1959

 

 

79,342.  Robert Hooke had taken the basic principle of the telescope and used it to build a microscope.  (Light & Microscope)  Professor Jim Al-Khalili, Light and Dark, BBC 2013

 

 

79,118.  The microscope: one of the first to use had been Robert Hooke in the seventeenth century.  His book Micrographia contains illustrations of a hidden.  The microscope had revealed the hidden structure of plants, snowflakes and natural fibres.  Insect body parts on a scale no-one had thought possible.  Michael Mosley, The Story of Science: Power, Proof & Passion

 

 

79,180.  The difficulty of securing the microscope and its value as an aid to the practice of medicine gave it unusual value in our eyes, and perhaps for that reason Charles and I, even as children, became expert in its use.  Dr W W Mayo 1930

 

 

79,181.  Why has not man a microscopic eye?

For this plain reason, man is not a fly.

Say what the use, were finer optics giv’n,

T’ inspect a mite, not comprehend the heav’n?  Alexander Pope, An Essay on Man: Epistle I

 

 

75,439.  The microscope with its accessories is by far the least understood, the most inefficiently operated, and the most abused of all laboratory instruments.  Charles Shillaber

 

 

81,055.  Faith is a fine invention

For gentlemen to see;

But microscopes are prudent

In an emergency.  (Microscrope & Faith & Epigram)  Emily Dickinson, Faith is a Fine Invention 

 

 

81,056.  Can the human soul be glimpsed through a microscope?  Maybe, but you’d definitely need one of those very good ones with two eyepieces.  Woody Allen, cited B A Palevitz

 

 

81,057.  The gifts of microscopes to our understanding of cells and organisms is so profound that one has to ask: What are the gifts of the microscopist?  Here is my opinion.  The gift of the great microscopist is the ability to think with the eyes and see with the brain.  Deep revelations into the nature of living things continue to travel on beams of light.  Daniel Mazia, cell biologist

 

 

81,058.  Twas the night before Christmas

And deep in the lab

Something came crawling

From under a slab

it crawled to the agar

To take a peek

At all the bacteria

Lying asleep

it slithered through the jelly

(as icky things do)

Depositing slime

And gobbets of goo

Moving on to the ‘scope’

With a single aim

To spell out a message

Addressed to Elaine

Dear Human, it wrote

With some ink from a gland

Forgot your card,

Please understand

Having studied your kind

And obtained my degree

On a theses titled

‘Humans and their relations with me’

I find that you pry

Into all that we do

Without recognising

We need privacy too!

You took photos

of each of my chums

All of my aunties

And

Each of my sons

You sold these photos to some TV show

Keeping the money

Isn’t that so?

If you use our photos, to give others a fright

You really don’t know us

For it is simply not right!

Now that we've informed you

Please make amends

Or we’ll consult our lawyers

Messrs S Bends

Well put an end to your scary sights

By wearing bright colours

And thick woolly tights

Viruses and bacteria

Will aim to be cute

And all of your ventures

Will go down the chute

But heck, as it’s Christmas

We'll give you a break

Here is one scary picture

And it isn’t a fake!

Out of pouch, it took with a sigh,

Its favourite photo

Of Elaine’s right eye!  (Microscope & Microbe & Photograph)  Iain Probert, A Christmas Ode for the Scientifically Minded, to sister Elaine Humphrey after her photos used on TV show X-Files 1997

 

 

81,059.  It is only in the microscope that our life looks so big.  Arthur Schopenhauer

 

 

92,829.  SARS – the ride in the Metropol Hotel’s elevator will launch a worldwide epidemic, one that randomly strikes its victims ...  Viruses have been killing humans ever since the existence of mankind, even though we’ve only been able to see them since the creation of the electron microscope, a device that makes the invisible visible ...  In the 20th century alone, more people died from viral infections than from all the wars around the globe.  (Virus & Microscope & Epidemic)  The Virus Empire: Silent Killers
