How to use penicillin in a sentence?

  1. Alan Cooper:

    Apparently, Neanderthals possessed a good knowledge of medicinal plants and their various anti-inflammatory and pain-relieving properties..., the use of antibiotics would be very surprising, as this is more than 40,000 years before we developed penicillin.

  2. Amesh Adalja:

    Antibiotics resistance isn’t just something that happened after the discovery of penicillin.

  3. Saturday Review:

    Penicillin was indeed the product of accidental discovery, but the discovery was made, and the knowledge developed, because certain scientists had definite goals in mind. "Chance," Pastuer wrote, "favors only the prepared mind." The mind must be prepared not only by scientific training and technological know-how, but also by the awareness of social needs.

  4. Muhammad Ali:

    If they can make penicillin out of mouldy bread, they can sure make something out of you.
