virus Quotes About Love, Human, Funny, HIV at starsquotes read below. A virus is a tiny infectious agent replicating only inside an organism’s living cells. Viruses can infect all life forms including bacteria and archaea, from animals and plants to micro-organisms. Since the 1892 article by Dmitri Ivanovsky describing a non-bacterial pathogen infecting tobacco plants, and the 1898 discovery by Martinus Beijerinck of the tobacco mosaic virus, about 5,000 virus species have been identified in detail, of the millions of virus types in the world. Viruses are found in almost every Earth ecosystem, and are the most numerous biological entity type. The research of viruses is called virology, a microbiological sub-speciality.

I pictured myself as a virus or a cancer cell and tried to sense what it would be like.

Jonas Salk

Love is like a virus. It can happen to anybody at any time.

Maya Angelou

Life on Earth is at the ever-increasing risk of being wiped out by a disaster, such as sudden global nuclear war, a genetically engineered virus or other dangers we have not yet thought of.

Stephen Hawking

An asteroid or a supervolcano could certainly destroy us, but we also face risks the dinosaurs never saw: An engineered virus, nuclear war, inadvertent creation of a micro black hole, or some as-yet-unknown technology could spell the end of us.

Elon Musk

I think we have other things to worry about than some Zika virus.

Simone Biles

The AIDS virus is not more powerful than God.

Marianne Williamson

In the original introduction to the word meme in the last chapter of ‘The Selfish Gene,’ I did actually use the metaphor of a ‘virus.’ So when anybody talks about something going viral on the Internet, that is exactly what a meme is, and it looks as though the word has been appropriated for a subset of that.

Richard Dawkins

Think of the earth as a living organism that is being attacked by billions of bacteria whose numbers double every forty years. Either the host dies, or the virus dies, or both die.

Gore Vidal

Freedom is the most contagious virus known to man.

Hubert H. Humphrey

virus Quotes About Love, Human, Funny, HIV at starsquotes

I started with Apple, in a pre-Windows era when PCs seemed to involve more of a learning curve. But the fact that I’m yet to acquire so much as a single virus still seems a very good thing.

William Gibson

In the years when HIV was a killer, any parent of an openly gay person was terrified. I knew my mother well enough that she would spend every day praying that I didn’t come across that virus. She’d have worried like that.

George Michael

Language is a virus from outer space.

William S. Burroughs

Most of the trouble in this world has been caused by folks who can’t mind their own business, because they have no business of their own to mind, any more than a smallpox virus has.

William S. Burroughs

Changes… can only be effected by alterations in the original. The only thing not prerecorded in a prerecorded universe are the prerecordings themselves. The copies can only repeat themselves word for word. A virus is a copy. You can pretty it up, cut it up, scramble it – it will reassemble in the same form.

William S. Burroughs

Liability is being assessed against companies who inadvertently have shipped a virus to another company. Rather than risk the incredibly bad PR, these companies fork over.

John McAfee

I wanted to be a genetic engineer. That was my goal in college. I wanted to figure out what the codon sequence was that causes replication in a cardio myopathic virus. That was my goal.

Ashton Kutcher

While Ebola’s deadly reach has proven to be a complex and unique international challenge, the many uncertainties surrounding this virus continue to threaten U.S. national security.

Marco Rubio

The launch of phase 1 Ebola vaccine studies is a first step in developing a vaccine that could be licensed and used in the field to protect not only the front line health care workers but also those living in areas where Ebola virus exists.

Anthony Fauci

The nature of a protective immune response to HIV is still unclear. Because in a very, very unique manner, unlike virtually any other microbe with which we’re familiar, the HIV virus has evolved in a way that the immune system finds it very difficult, if not impossible, to deal with the virus.

Anthony Fauci

It’s the advantage of the virus to spread, and you can only spread when you infect people and they infect other people without necessarily killing them. So if you had 100 percent mortality, the potential pandemic would almost self-eliminate itself.

Anthony Fauci

Some of the most vulnerable people to getting the SARS virus are health care providers. The general public, walking in the street, there is really not that much risk at all. It’s a very, very low risk – a very, very low risk.

Anthony Fauci

An AIDS-free generation would mean that virtually no child is born with HIV; that, as those children grow up, their risk of becoming infected is far lower than it is today; and that those who become infected can access treatment to help prevent them from developing AIDS and from passing the virus on to others.

Anthony Fauci

As a young physician in the mid-’80s, caring for people who had contracted H.I.V., I lost two of my patients to suicide at a time when the virus was doing very little harm to them. I have always thought of them as having been killed by a metaphor, by the burden of secrecy and shame associated with the disease.

Abraham Verghese

The largest outbreak of bird flu in American history was an H5N2 virus, which led to the deaths of 17 million domestic birds and cost the nation more than $400 million during an outbreak in Pennsylvania that started in 1983.

Michael Greger

The unique nature about the influenza virus is its great potential for changes, for mutation.

Margaret Chan

A virus is not just DNA; a virus is also packaged up, covered over with a series of proteins in a nice, elegant, well-compacted form.

Francis Collins

Dance music is like a virus: it has affected so many different genres.

Avicii

There’s no one place a virus goes to die – but that doesn’t make its demise any less a public health victory. Throughout human history, viral diseases have had their way with us, and for just as long, we have hunted them down and done our best to wipe them out.

Jeffrey Kluger

After all, just one virus on a computer is one too many.

Glenn Turner

As every new breed of virus is conceived, created and released into the wild, another small change is made to the anti-virus software to combat the new threat.

Glenn Turner

These days, newish art can be priced between $10,000 and $25,000. When I tell artists that a new painting by a newish artist should go for around $1,200, they look at me like I’m a flesh-eating virus.

Jerry Saltz

When a person who is very ill decides to treat it like a slight virus, you play that game. If you make a big scene, I think it is yourself you are doing it for, not the person who’s ill.

Lauren Bacall

Nothing could be more important for a child affected by Zika virus than to have continuity of care, seamlessly from before birth to after birth.

Thom Tillis

Humanity is a virus.

Genesis P-Orridge

Critics in particular treat CGI as a virus that’s infecting film.

Peter Jackson

As mechanistic biologists, we are hoping that by understanding how the virus works at the molecular level, we will be able to predict with more accuracy how it will evolve.

Jennifer Doudna

Thinking ahead, in 2013, the Japanese government, together with pharmaceutical companies and the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, established a fund for promoting research and development of medical products for neglected tropical diseases (NTDs). The importance of planning for disease outbreaks was made clear with the Ebola virus.

Shinzo Abe

An inefficient virus kills its host. A clever virus stays with it.

James Lovelock

I wanted to play around with the format, really tear it to pieces and shake it up. For example, if Mitch saves someone from drowning, and that person then goes out and releases a virus that kills a million people. Imagine the moral implications of that.

David Hasselhoff

If an employee told you he had the flu, you’d send him home. If an employee told you he was feeling anxious, you’d probably tell him to get back to work. But the emotion is just as contagious as a flu virus.

Chip Conley

I decided to pursue graduate study in molecular biology and was accepted by Professor Itaru Watanabe’s laboratory at the Institute for Virus Research at the University of Kyoto, one of a few laboratories in Japan where U.S.-trained molecular biologists were actively engaged in research.

Susumu Tonegawa

After I arrived in Basel, I initially attempted to continue the project of my days in Dulbecco’s laboratory, namely, the transcriptional control of the simian virus 40 genes.

Susumu Tonegawa

New technologies can be used for destructive purposes. The answer is to develop rapid-response systems for new dangers like a bioterrorist creating a new biological virus.

Ray Kurzweil

Indecision is a virus that can run through an army and destroy its will to win or even to survive.

Wendell Mayes

Human beings are a wonderful virus in some ways.

Ansel Elgort

Nation states that are used to imposing capital controls will face a quandary: ban cryptocurrencies and live in the technology dustbin; enable them, and this virus – this religion, this protocol – will enable the free flow of money and language, along with packets, around the globe.

Naval Ravikant

Peter Jennings came to us and said to make a PSA, ‘Let’s Talk About AIDS.’ But I was naive about how the virus is contracted – until Magic Johnson came out. I’d stereotyped it, thinking it was a gay disease, a white man’s disease.

Pepa

Do you remember the first three years of Steam? People absolutely hated that Valve forced you to launch their game through what some people called a virus at the time, which was the Steam client. But Steam led the digital distribution revolution: it was the first across all platforms.

Tim Sweeney

The mystery of that damn virus has been generated by the $2 billion a year they spend on it.

Kary Mullis

The virus that causes AIDS is the trickiest pathogen scientists have ever confronted. It mutates furiously, it has decoys to evade the immune system, it attacks the very cells that are trying to fight it, and it quickly hides itself in your genome.

Seth Berkley

It’s interesting to note that when something like a virus tries to poison us, the first thing our bodies do is heat up. We burn away the infection. Maybe that’s what Earth is doing to us.

Simon Toyne

What if life is not carbon-based? Can life exist as a gas or a plasma? Could planets or stars in some sense be alive? What about an interstellar cloud? Could life exist on such a small or large scale, or move so fast or so slowly that we wouldn’t recognize it? Could you have an intelligent virus?

David Grinspoon

The Zika virus invades and disrupts the development of the fetal brain, but the effects on the brains of infants and young children are unknown.

Tom Frieden

All these things that we’ve contemplated, whether it’s space travel or solutions to diseases that plague us, Ebola virus, all of these things would be a lot more tractable if the machines are trying to solve these problems.

Oren Etzioni

What makes you a good citizen makes you a good Christian… Obey the law of your land by not crossing the borders of your nation with Ebola virus.

T. B. Joshua

We have met the Devil of Information Overload and his impish underlings, the computer virus, the busy signal, the dead link, and the PowerPoint presentation.

James Gleick

You see a virus very differently when it’s caught and suspended on a slab of glass than when you’re observing how it’s ravaged a fellow human being.

Hanya Yanagihara

The Strandbeest is a self-replicating meme, a brain virus. It infects the student’s brain. In fact, the Strandbeest abuse students for their reproduction. For two years, this reproduction fell into a flow acceleration. Now, 3D printers produce walking mini Strandbeests.

Theo Jansen

We don’t know what we don’t know about Ebola. We think we know it’s a virus, but is it mutating? Can it be spread by airborne?

Jeff Duncan

As long as we do not know how the cell works, we don’t know the kind of havoc the AIDS virus creates in the cell.

Gunter Blobel

A vaccine introduces a small amount or a tempered version of the virus into the body – just enough to that the body is able to recognize it and deal with it when it encounters it again in the future.

Eula Biss

Babies born to women who are infected with hep B – and mothers can carry the virus without their knowledge – will almost certainly be infected if they are not vaccinated within twelve hours of birth.

Eula Biss

National politics and elections are dominated by emotions, by lack of self-confidence, by fear of the other, by insecurity, by infection of the body politic by the virus of victimhood.

Tariq Ramadan

I knew the HIV virus was something anyone could get but also believed the chances were very slim… I honestly believed I had a better chance of winning the lottery than contracting this disease. I have never been so wrong in my life.

Tommy Morrison

I’m actually pretty scientifically interested. I have a lot of friends who are doctors, so the idea of the virus and the synapses in the brain and how the nervous system works was actually all pretty familiar to me.

Noah Emmerich

The Ebola virus is unlike any health crisis we have ever experienced and needs a response unlike anything we have ever seen.

Paul Allen

As the Ebola virus continued to consume my patients, I witnessed the horror this disease visits upon its victims, the intense pain and humiliation of those who suffer with it.

Kent Brantly

When a person survives Ebola, when they recover, they’re not a carrier of the virus.

Kent Brantly

I’ve had two neck surgeries, a back surgery, three knee surgeries, eye surgery, but I keep bouncing back. I won’t go away – kind of like a virus. I don’t go away. I keep coming back stronger and stronger. I’m contagious.

Tito Ortiz

My lab used to do gene expression and genomics, and we did a lot of sequencing samples from virus outbreaks.

thleen Rubins

Natural selection shaped the human brain to be drawn toward aspects of nature that enhance our survival and reproduction, like verdant landscapes and docile creatures. There is no payoff to getting the warm fuzzies in the presence of rats, snakes, mosquitoes, cockroaches, herpes simplex and the rabies virus.

Paul Bloom

People called ’28 Days’ and ’28 Weeks’ zombie movies, and they’re not! It’s some sort of virus; they’re not dead.

George A. Romero

I am not opposed to scientists looking at all ways to combat and destroy the Zika virus.

Carlos Lopez-Cantera

When I was 5 and my sister was 3, we went on a family trip, and she ate cheese off the floor at an airport. My mother, a germaphobe, got very upset. My sister, of course, got a stomach virus, and ever since then, I have an aversion to cheese.

Scott Stossel

I’m not interested in replicating ‘Hedwig’ like a virus.

John Cameron Mitchell

The CIA now assesses that four nations – Iraq, North Korea, Russia and, to the surprise of some specialists, France – have undeclared samples of the smallpox virus.

Barton Gellman

If a healthy person were placed on the other side of a room from a person who was sick with AIDS, the AIDS virus would not be able to drift across the room through the air and infect the healthy person.

Richard Preston

If a vaccine works, then the vaccinators might conceivably set up what’s known as ring vaccinations around Ebola hot spots. In this technique, medical workers simply vaccinate everybody in a ring, miles deep, around a focus of a virus.

Richard Preston

The color revolution virus affects only weak countries. Belarus does not have any breeding ground for this.

Alexander Lukashenko

With the Romero zombie, you usually did not have a reason for the infection, the plague, the virus, whatever it’s called.

Stephen Graham Jones

Left to their own devices, epidemic diseases tend to follow the same basic process: A virus or bacteria infects a host, who typically becomes sick and in many cases dies. Along the way, the host infects others.

Alan Huffman

Without effective human intervention, epidemics and pandemics typically end only when the virus or bacteria has infected every available host and all have either died or become immune to the disease.

Alan Huffman

I had a dream, in 1985, I believe, when a friend I’d gone to school with was sick – one of the first people I knew who’d gotten the AIDS virus. I had a dream of him in his bedroom with an angel crashing through the ceiling. I wrote a poem called ‘Angels in America.’ I’ve never looked at the poem since the day I wrote it.

Tony Kushner

Jonas Salk showed that a killed virus vaccine would work and would be damned effective in fighting disease. This was something that virologists of the day pooh-poohed. And Salk proved them wrong.

David Oshinsky

See, Ebola, like all threats to humanity, it’s fueled by mistrust and distraction and division. When we build barriers amongst ourselves, and we fight amongst ourselves, the virus thrives. But unlike all threats to humanity, Ebola is one where we’re actually all the same. We’re all in this fight together.

Pardis Sabeti

Let us not let the world be defined by the destruction wrought by one virus, but illuminated by billions of hearts and minds working in unity.

Pardis Sabeti

The whole reason I like these virus movies is because I read ‘The Stand’ when I was in junior high and thought it was the greatest book I’d ever read.

Julie Plec

I’ve always loved the genre of virus movies or Armageddon movies – anything that involves being trapped with the cute boy in detention when the zombies are attacking.

Julie Plec

The mutating virus of multiculturalism has escaped its breeding ground in elite universities and is now running rampant across popular culture, entertainment, and politics.

Tom Tancredo

In San Francisco, I found Warren Levinson, who had set up a program to study Rous Sarcoma Virus, an archetype for what we now call retroviruses. At the time, the replication of retroviruses was one of the great puzzles of animal virology. Levinson, Levintow and I joined forces in the hope of solving that puzzle.

J. Michael Bishop

There are people who are just suicidal, regardless. They are built to self-destruct. It seems, in my family, like a virus that’s resistant to any kind of help or care or medication.

Miriam Toews

You can’t take a knife on a plane anymore, but you can get on carrying a virus.

David Quammen

The more cases of Ebola infection we have, the more chances there are for the virus to mutate in a particular way that adapts it well to living in humans, replicating in humans, and perhaps transmitting from human to human.

David Quammen

One of the things that’s particularly nefarious about Ebola is that it continues to live in a dead person for some period of time after death. A person who’s been dead for a day or two may still be seething with Ebola virus.

David Quammen

Viruses have to live somewhere. They can only replicate in living creatures. So, when the Ebola virus disappears between outbreaks, it has to be living in some reservoir host, presumably some species of animal.

David Quammen

Ebola isn’t a respiratory virus. It doesn’t spread through the airborne route. So it’s not likely to spread like wildfire around the world and kill tens of thousands or hundreds of thousands of people. That’s what I think of as the next big one.

David Quammen

With over 20 million residents and 100 million tourists, we must stay ahead of the possible spread of the Zika virus and take immediate action to ensure Florida is prepared.

Rick Scott

With the absence of a flu vaccination last year, I did not take a flu shot; but there is still some immunity that carries over from year to year; but about every 30 years, there is a major change in the genetics of the flu virus.

Michael C. Burgess

Supporting American technology companies is one of the most patriotic things you can do – the technology industry is the reason our country has such a high-standard of living and why we can afford to spread the democracy virus around the globe.

Jason Calacanis

There are many different types of racism from people of different colours and nationalities. There is no vaccine to fight this and no antibiotics to take. It’s a dangerous and infectious virus which is strengthened by indifference and inaction.

Kevin-Prince Boateng

Virus particles contain single molecules of nucleic acid.

Alfred Hershey

Physical studies of DNA had, of course, been under way for some years before analysis of virus particles began.

Alfred Hershey

What seems to be clear to me is that after the primary infection most of the cells die indirectly, but at the later stage, when the viral load is very high, the virus kills a lot of cells directly.

Luc Montagnier

What perhaps should receive more attention is the effect of the treatment on the virus.

Luc Montagnier

Since most of the transmission is sexual transmission, you have a regional or local response to the virus.

Luc Montagnier

Of course, screening for HIV did essentially eliminate the transmission of this virus by transfusions.

Serge Lang

Many key concepts concerning the nature of immunity have originated from the very practical need to control virus infections.

Peter C. Doherty

This year, 1996, has been designated the ‘Year of the Vaccine,’ commemorating the 200th anniversary of Edward Jenner’s vaccination of James Phipps with cowpox virus and subsequent challenge with smallpox virus. Insight into the nature of viruses, and how viruses interact with mammalian cells, has evolved since the turn of the century.

Peter C. Doherty

We did more to thwart Iran’s nuclear ambitions with a computer virus than we ever could have with bombs (and we did still more with diplomacy – the abandonment of which is also bad for our military, because militaries can only stop a problem, not fix a problem).

Joe Sestak

If you look at zombie movies throughout history, they’re always making adjustments. Even the idea of the virus zombies and the back-from-the-dead zombies… there’s been tons of tweaks.

Jeff Baena

Scepticism may be evidence of a healthy and independent mindset; but conspiracism is a virus that feeds off insecurity and bitterness.

Mehdi Hasan

To be concerned about immigration and the economy is not racist, but I do think there is a virus of racism that runs through Ukip.

Chuka Umunna

Reports of illegal migrants carrying deadly diseases such as swine flu, dengue fever, Ebola virus and tuberculosis are particularly concerning.

Phil Gingrey

In fact, a large majority of those have died and of those expected to die of AIDS, as well as of those who are infected with the virus, are in sub-Saharan Africa.

Claudio Hummes

When Russia’s intelligence agencies obtained some of the National Security Agency’s secrets about its own cyberweapons, it appeared to do so by manipulating a virus protection program sold by Kaspersky, a Russian firm.

David E. Sanger

It’s true that my research expertise is in biology: for example, the Ebola virus, the Marburg virus, and monkey pox, and not bacteriology as in the case of the anthrax organism. It’s also true that I have never, ever worked with anthrax in my life. It’s a separate field from the research I was performing at Fort Detrick.

Steven Hatfill

McDermott and two colleagues – James H. Fowler of the University of California, San Diego, and Nicholas A. Christakis of Harvard University – published a paper titled ‘Breaking Up is Hard to Do, Unless Everyone Else is Doing it Too.’ Their study shows that divorce can spread like a virus among friends, siblings and co-workers.

Katie Hafner

Thankfully, I found a doctor at Presbyterian Hospital in New York, Scott Hammer, who diagnosed my chronic fatigue as the Epstein-Barr virus, and the medication I took either helped jump-start my immune system or made the virus dormant. I was very lucky.

Tucker Halpern

In the early days, a Georgia college kid named Chris Putnam created a virus that made your Facebook profile resemble MySpace, then the social-media incumbent. It went rampant and started deleting user data as well. Instead of siccing the F.B.I. dogs on Putnam, Facebook co-founder Dustin Moskovitz invited him for an interview and offered him a job.

Antonio Garcia Martinez

When the AIDS epidemic broke, because I happened to be a science nerd and knew a lot about viruses and a lot about that virus at the time, I felt a moral obligation to go out and try to stem the fear and get out and explain to people what the disease was and how it worked.

Morgan Fairchild

People say to me now, ‘Oh, you’ve given up the piano.’ How can you? Music is a virus.

Christian McKay

From the practical point of view, the susceptibility to infection of the guinea pig proved to be the most useful step forward. Today, all laboratories use this animal for preserving the virus.

Charles Jules Henry Nicole

I was less successful in my attempts to effect preventive vaccination against typhus by using the virus and in trying to produce large quantities of serum using large animals.

Charles Jules Henry Nicole

Just as the only reservoir for the typhus virus in nature is provided by man, so the only vector of infection is the louse. The bite of the louse is not virulent immediately after the infecting meal. It becomes so only towards the 7th day following infection.

Charles Jules Henry Nicole

The discovery that I soon made that the guinea pig was also susceptible to infection made it possible for me, from the third year on, to preserve the virus on this animal.

Charles Jules Henry Nicole

I wanted to build something that was a system – that was mechanical and would propagate itself like a virus. I needed a way for it spread from person to person, and the best way to do that was trying to get someone to get their friends to sign up.

Michael Birch

It is important to note that there exist vast gender differences in the global role of papillomaviruses in human cancers. This is mainly due to the role of this virus family in the induction of cancer of the cervix.

Harald zur Hausen

Maybe I should mention it: I was not from the beginning mainly interested in papilloma virus; I was mainly interested in infectious agents in human cancer. So papilloma viruses came up as the most likely candidate from my viewpoint.

Harald zur Hausen

Violence and irrationality were so long and thoroughly cultivated among the Irish, and so perfectly ingrained into their nature, that modern civilization has as yet been unable to extract the virus.

Thomas Mellon

Gorillas are in danger of being wiped out by the Ebola virus. I feel like we have limited time to get to know them and understand them and they’re going to disappear – that’s terrifically sad. Wouldn’t it be great if we could stop that?

Sara Gruen

It turns out that viruses evolve from each other, like everything else. So if you look at the evolutionary tree of viruses, you can find parts of their genome that haven’t changed over evolutionary time. You can recognize what may be a new virus by identifying this little piece of their genome that hasn’t changed and is represented on the chip.

Joseph DeRisi

When an animal is infected, either naturally or by experimental injection, with a bacterium, virus, or other foreign body, the animal recognises this as an invader and acts in such a way as to remove or destroy it.

Cesar Milstein

When a person tests positive for HIV, it is not a test for the virus itself but for antibodies to the virus, and the test is not able to distinguish between HIV antibodies and a multitude of other antibodies. Many conditions can lead to a false positive result, including flu shots, hepatitis, and pregnancy.

Nate Mendel

The government lied about inventing the HIV virus as a means of genocide against people of color. The government lied.

Jeremiah Wright

We started the AIDS virus. We are only able to maintain our level of living by making sure that Third World people live in grinding poverty.

Jeremiah Wright

Great writers arrive among us like new diseases threatening, powerful, impatient for patients to pick up their virus, irresistible.

Craig Raine
