The following are quotes:
- “I wish to call your attention to-night to what I believe to be another universal law, a qualitative one and not a quantitative one. The chemists call it ‘le Chatelier’s theorem’. The physicists call it the ‘theorem of Maupertuis’ or the ‘principle of least action’. The biologists know it as the ‘survival of the fittest’, while the businessman speaks of the ‘law of supply and demand’.”
