Linus Pauling: ...when I was a boy, 18, 19 years old, I kept wondering why some elements combined
with one another very vigorously, with each other very vigorously and others hardly
at all. Why you have noble metals and very reactive metals and non-metals. The electronegativity
scale is the answer to that, I'm pleased to say.
