The following are quotes:
- “In modern times, instruments have been invented for noting variable ‘degrees’ of heat and cold, which, under the designation of thermometers, thermoscopes, pyrometers, or pyroscopes, are not in general use in every part of the civilized world. Their names are, derived from Greek terms: θερμος [thermos], πνρ [fire] [NE:230], signifying ‘heat’ and ‘fire’, and μετρον, σχοπος, a ‘measure’ and ‘investigator’.”
