What advice can I give women today? I have no mysterious secrets to impart. The most important advice is to choose the field that makes you happiest. There is nothing better than loving your work.

Don’t let yourself be discouraged by others, and believe in yourself.
Biochemist Gertrude Elion in Scientific American (via karolena)
