Passage I
            Said another great scientist, “In the field of observation, chance only favors the mind, that is prepared”.
            Lister’s mind was marvelously prepared: “other men accepted defeat: They thought vaguely that there were gases in the air, which caused wounds to become septic. Lister’s own teacher had stated that surgery had reached finality: but Lister worked on. He suspected that there were minute organisms which entered wounds, and set up their own life-destroying life there, degenerating human tissue as the green fly will destroy the rose .He began his experiments trying to send some substances which would destroy this lower form of life, or build some barrier between it and the open wound. He found what he wanted, in a powerful disinfectant, by-product of coal-tar, which he learned that the authorities at Carlisle were using on their sewage. It was carbolic. Lister introduced it into the hospital wards, into the operating room, into his surgical bandages. He dipped his instruments in it, and his swabs were rinsed in it. He even sprayed the air around with a fine mist of carbolic, while he performed his operations.
