We’ve sourced some of the most interesting and thought-provoking Science Quotes from Jose Padilha, Vitruvius, Hans Eysenck, Pierre Teilhard de Chardin, Will Durant. Each of the following quotes is overflowing with creativity, and knowledge.
Science is based on the possibility of objectivity, on the possibility of different people checking out for themselves the observations made by others. Without that possibility, there is no empirical principle capable of deciding between different arguments and theories.
Architecture is a science arising out of many other sciences, and adorned with much and varied learning; by the help of which a judgment is formed of those works which are the result of other arts.
Tact and diplomacy are fine in international relations, in politics, perhaps even in business; in science only one thing matters, and that is the facts.
The mineral world is a much more supple and mobile world than could be imagined by the science of the ancients. Vaguely analogous to the metamorphoses of living creatures, there occurs in the most solid rocks, as we now know, perpetual transformation of a mineral species.
Science gives us knowledge, but only philosophy can give us wisdom.
Natural science, does not simply describe and explain nature; it is part of the interplay between nature and ourselves.
The basic science is very well established; it is well understood that global warming is due to greenhouse gases. What is uncertain is projections about specifics in the next few decades, by how much will the climate change.
In a few years, all great physical constants will have been approximately estimated, and that the only occupation which will be left to men of science will be to carry these measurements to another place of decimals.
In many spheres of human endeavor, from science to business to education to economic policy, good decisions depend on good measurement.
You can’t rush the science, but when the science points you in the right direction, then you can start rushing.
Biology, meaning the science of all life, is a late notion.
Many of our advances in science and technology were seeded through government.
Electrical science has disclosed to us the more intimate relation existing between widely different forces and phenomena and has thus led us to a more complete comprehension of Nature and its many manifestations to our senses.
Science and technology are the keys to both our longevity and our demise. Our entire existence on this planet is a double-edged sword.
I wish that I was one of those kids who grew up saying I always wanted to be an astronaut and was really good at science and math. But that wasn’t really the case. I always liked it, but I never believed I was one of the smart kids.
Science to me is sufficiently weird and interesting, and stranger than fiction.
One must take things lightly, after all, we are entertainers and acting isn’t rocket science. The trick is, not to take criticism to the heart or analyse things too much.
It’s not a science when you are judging art, but we’d be remiss to say you can’t look at something and say, ‘This is more well done than that.’
Anthropology is the science which tells us that people are the same the whole world over – except when they are different.
Disagreements are one of the fundamental positive aspects of science.
The essence of science is independent thinking, hard work, and not equipment. When I got my Nobel Prize, I had spent hardly 200 rupees on my equipment.
Understanding truth is the primary objective of science, not doing good for the world.
Science must begin with myths, and with the criticism of myths.
Computer science is no more about computers than astronomy is about telescopes.
Leave the atom alone.
With the observable fact that scientific knowledge makes our lives better when applied with concern for human welfare and environmental protection, there is no question that science and technology can produce abundance so that no one has to go without.
It is not a Pandora’s box that science opens; it is, rather, a treasure chest. We, humanity, can choose whether or not to take out the discoveries and use them, and for what purpose.
Science means simply the aggregate of all the recipes that are always successful. All the rest is literature.
Investing in science education and curiosity-driven research is investing in the future.
If an elderly but distinguished scientist says that something is possible, he is almost certainly right; but if he says that it is impossible, he is very probably wrong.
I felt that chess… is a science in the form of a game… I consider myself a scientist. I wanted to be treated like a scientist.
Science fiction is what we point to when we say it.
The product of mental labor – science – always stands far below its value, because the labor-time necessary to reproduce it has no relation at all to the labor-time required for its original production.
From the dawn of history, science has probed the universe of unknowns, searching for the uniting laws of nature.
I’m afraid for all those who’ll have the bread snatched from their mouths by these machines. What business has science and capitalism got, bringing all these new inventions into the works, before society has produced a generation educated up to using them!
There are checks and balances in science. There’s somebody checking the people doing the science, and then there’s somebody who checks the checkers and somebody who checks the checker’s checkers.
Poets say science takes away from the beauty of the stars – mere globs of gas atoms. I, too, can see the stars on a desert night, and feel them. But do I see less or more?
This world, after all our science and sciences, is still a miracle wonderful, inscrutable, magical and more, to whosoever will think of it.
The great tragedy of science – the slaying of a beautiful hypothesis by an ugly fact.
We live in this world in order always to learn industriously and to enlighten each other by means of discussion and to strive vigorously to promote the progress of science and the fine arts.
Even in our day, science suspects beyond the Polar seas, at the very circle of the Arctic Pole, the existence of a sea which never freezes and a continent which is ever green.
Everything in food is science. The only subjective part is when you eat it.
I also assume that they are not simply the physical properties of things as now conceived by physical science. Instead, they are ecological, in the sense that they are properties of the environment relative to an animal.
What we need is a strong education system that allows creativity to grow and encourages students to be interested in science and technology.
War is the science of destruction.
I think that’s something a scientist can do because a scientist works at a border, at the edge of science, at the edge of knowledge, and so there’s a lot of fun of reaching out and thinking about things that other people didn’t think about. And so it has a kind of exploratory notion, kind of adventurous part in it.
Economists agree about economics – and that’s a science – and they disagree about economic policy because that’s a value judgment… I’ve had profound disagreements on policy with the famous Milton Friedman. But, on economics, we agree.
If you look in ‘The Science of Getting Rich,’ you see no reference whatsoever to the ‘law of attraction.’
Chemical synthesis is uniquely positioned at the heart of chemistry, the central science, and its impact on our lives and society is all pervasive.

All science is either physics or stamp collecting.
In this era of globalisation, I believe that the only way to push the Philippines forward is to focus our energy on improving English, mathematics, science, and technology.
Engineering or technology is all about using the power of science to make life better for people, to reduce cost, to improve comfort, to improve productivity, etc.
In Israel, a land lacking in natural resources, we learned to appreciate our greatest national advantage: our minds. Through creativity and innovation, we transformed barren deserts into flourishing fields and pioneered new frontiers in science and technology.
I’m not much of a math and science guy. I spent most of my time in school daydreaming and managed to turn it into a living.
Art, like real estate, is half science, half gut. We go to a lot of art fairs. We have two full-time art experts who help me make all the decisions about how to build the corporate and personal collection and what we put in our developments. We don’t let interior designers pick art for us.
Science is what we understand well enough to explain to a computer. Art is everything else we do.
Time travel used to be thought of as just science fiction, but Einstein’s general theory of relativity allows for the possibility that we could warp space-time so much that you could go off in a rocket and return before you set out.
Science does not permit exceptions.
GIS is waking up the world to the power of geography, this science of integration, and has the framework for creating a better future.
The function of sociology, as of every science, is to reveal that which is hidden.
Science ignores the spiritual realm because it is not amenable to scientific analysis. As importantly, the predictive success of Newtonian theory, emphasizing the primacy of a physical Universe, made the existence of spirit and God an extraneous hypothesis that offered no explanatory principles needed by science.
We look at science as something very elite, which only a few people can learn. That’s just not true. You just have to start early and give kids a foundation. Kids live up, or down, to expectations.
We want to answer this classical question, who am I? So I think that most of our works are for art, or whatever we do, including science or religion, tried to answer that question.
Biochemistry is the science of life. All our life processes – walking, talking, moving, feeding – are essentially chemical reactions. So biochemistry is actually the chemistry of life, and it’s supremely interesting.
Reason, observation, and experience; the holy trinity of science.
I am honorary President of the American Humanist Society, having succeeded the late, great science fiction writer Isaac Asimov in that utterly functionless capacity. We Humanists behave as well as we can, without any rewards or punishments in an Afterlife.
Wandering around the web is like living in a world in which every doorway is actually one of those science fiction devices which deposit you in a completely different part of the world when you walk through them. In fact, it isn’t like it, it is it.
We are in a tech-heavy society, plunging headlong into an unknown future. Science fiction is what allows you to stand back and analyze the impact of that and put it in context of how it affects people.
Science, my lad, is made up of mistakes, but they are mistakes which it is useful to make, because they lead little by little to the truth.
Books are the carriers of civilization. Without books, history is silent, literature dumb, science crippled, thought and speculation at a standstill.
Science sent the Hubble telescope out into space, so it could capture light and the absence thereof, from the very beginning of time. And the telescope really did that. So now we know that there was once absolutely nothing, such a perfect nothing that there wasn’t even nothing or once.
Perhaps it would be better for science, that all criticism should be avowed.
The fewer the facts, the stronger the opinion.
The more thoroughly I conduct scientific research, the more I believe that science excludes atheism.
Evolution is the fundamental idea in all of life science – in all of biology.
I actually started off majoring in computer science, but I knew right away I wasn’t going to stay with it. It was because I had this one professor who was the loneliest, saddest man I’ve ever known. He was a programmer, and I knew that I didn’t want to do whatever he did.
Part of what made the Macintosh great was that the people working on it were musicians, poets, and artists, and zoologists, and historians. They also happened to be the best computer scientists in the world. But if it hadn’t been computer science, these people would have been doing amazing things in other fields.
The humanities have been forced to disguise, both from themselves and their students, why their subjects really matter, for the sake of attracting money and prestige in a world obsessed by the achievements of science.
The Universal Zulu Nation stands to acknowledge wisdom, understanding, freedom, justice, and equality, peace, unity, love, and having fun, work, overcoming the negative through the positive, science, mathematics, faith, facts, and the wonders of God, whether we call him Allah, Jehovah, Yahweh, or Jah.
With science fiction I think we are preparing ourselves for contact with them, whoever they may be.
It’s great to be able to work on some science fiction. I love the genre.
Blitzscaling is what you do when you need to grow really, really quickly. It’s the science and art of rapidly building out a company to serve a large and usually global market, with the goal of becoming the first mover at scale. This is high-impact entrepreneurship.
Life is not an exact science, it is an art.
Science is a way of thinking much more than it is a body of knowledge.
The enchanting charms of this sublime science reveal only to those who have the courage to go deeply into it.
Globalisation means many other countries are asserting themselves and trying to take over leadership. Please don’t ask Americans to let others assume the leadership of human exploration. We can do wonderful science on the Moon, and wonderful commercial things. Then we can pack up and move on to Mars.
Ignorance more frequently begets confidence than does knowledge: it is those who know little, and not those who know much, who so positively assert that this or that problem will never be solved by science.
Science is but an image of the truth.
Weapons of mass destruction aren’t pulled out of a black hat like a white rabbit at a magic show. They’re produced in factories. There’s science and technology involved. They’re not produced in a hole in the ground or in a basement.
As a theoretical physicist, I feel at once proud and humble at the thought of the illustrious figures that have preceded me here to receive the greatest of all honors in science, the Nobel prize.
No one has a monopoly on truth, and science continues to advance. Yesterday’s heresies may be tomorrow’s conventional wisdom.
I am among those who think that science has great beauty.
The foundation of empire is art and science. Remove them or degrade them, and the empire is no more. Empire follows art and not vice versa as Englishmen suppose.
The scientific community should work as hard as possible to address major issues that affect our everyday lives such as climate change, infectious diseases and counterterrorism; in particular, ‘clean energy’ research deserves far higher priority. And science and technology are the prime routes to tackling these issues.
Every science has for its basis a system of principles as fixed and unalterable as those by which the universe is regulated and governed. Man cannot make principles; he can only discover them.
Democracy is the art and science of running the circus from the monkey cage.
I am keen to serve one-sixth of the world’s population where the miracles of science and technology would multiply manifold for betterment of mankind.
When I found Freestyle Fellowship, I started getting into the construction of rap. You get better at it the more you do it; you figure out the science and the math behind it.
For whatever reason, I didn’t succumb to the stereotype that science wasn’t for girls. I got encouragement from my parents. I never ran into a teacher or a counselor who told me that science was for boys. A lot of my friends did.
Economics is a strange science. Our subject deals with some of the most important as well as mundane issues that impinge on the human condition.
My father left me with his love of Jewish studies and cultural life. To this very day, along with several physicians and scientist colleagues, I take regular periodical lessons taught by a Rabbinical scholar on how the Jewish law views moral and ethical problems related to modern medicine and science.
My friends have said, ‘Wait, you’re pretty, and you sing? What do you mean you’re interested in science?’ I have to just hold my head and go, ‘Do you hear yourself?’ By no means should you ever limit yourself because of what others think or because of their perceptions of what someone looks like in a certain field.
Unforeseen surprises are the rule in science, not the exception. Remember: Stuff happens.
The grand aim of all science is to cover the greatest number of empirical facts by logical deduction from the smallest number of hypotheses or axioms.
Science is not, despite how it is often portrayed, about absolute truths. It is about developing an understanding of the world, making predictions, and then testing these predictions.
If co-operation, is thus the lifeblood of science and technology, it is similarly vital to society as a whole.
I’ve always been interested in medicine and was pleased when my brother became a doctor. But after thinking seriously about that field, I realized that what intrigued me was not the science, not the chemistry or biology of medicine, but the narrative – the story of each patient, each illness.
If God is the mystery of the universe, these mysteries, we’re tackling these mysteries one by one. If you’re going to stay religious at the end of the conversation, God has to mean more to you than just where science has yet to tread.

History is the science of things which are not repeated.
I am a great fan of science, but I cannot do a quadratic equation.
Science and mythology were the topics which fascinated me since my early childhood.
I think the novel is not so much a literary genre, but a literary space, like a sea that is filled by many rivers. The novel receives streams of science, philosophy, poetry and contains all of these; it’s not simply telling a story.
Man lives for science as well as bread.
Surgeon generals are appointed by presidents, but our work isn’t about politics. Our highest duty to to the public. Our true guide is science. Our job is to speak the truth about public health, even when it’s controversial or perceived as political.
Why do we do basic research? To learn about ourselves.
No one would want to read a book in which I explain the science of cloning because it would be very dull and it would also make no sense.
The most beautiful thing we can experience is the mysterious. It is the source of all true art and science.

The commonality between science and art is in trying to see profoundly – to develop strategies of seeing and showing.
Some say they see poetry in my paintings; I see only science.
The accumulation of skill and science which has been directed to diminish the difficulty of producing manufactured goods, has not been beneficial to that country alone in which it is concentrated; distant kingdoms have participated in its advantages.
Science in the modern world has many uses; its chief use, however, is to provide long words to cover the errors of the rich.
Take young researchers, put them together in virtual seclusion, give them an unprecedented degree of freedom and turn up the pressure by fostering competitiveness.
The main reason for the failure of the modern medical science is that it is dealing with results and not causes. Nothing more than the patching up of those attacked and the burying of those who are slain, without a thought being given to the real strong hold.
Every science consists in the coordination of facts; if the different observations were entirely isolated, there would be no science.
I hate facts. I always say the chief end of man is to form general propositions – adding that no general proposition is worth a damn.
There is a single light of science, and to brighten it anywhere is to brighten it everywhere.
The thing I have discovered about working with personal finance is that the good news is that it is not rocket science. Personal finance is about 80 percent behavior. It is only about 20 percent head knowledge.
A year spent in artificial intelligence is enough to make one believe in God.
In order for the United States to do the right things for the long term, it appears to be helpful for us to have the prospect of humiliation. Sputnik helped us fund good science – really good science: the semiconductor came out of it.
We didn’t set out to be educators or even scientists, and we don’t purport that what we do is real science but we’re demonstrating a methodology by which one can engage and satisfy your curiosity.
When I was in high school, I fell under the spell of that crazy idea that if you’re interested in the arts, you can’t be interested in science.
To mistrust science and deny the validity of scientific method is to resign your job as a human. You’d better go look for work as a plant or wild animal.
Religion and science are the two conjugated faces or phases of one and the same complete act of knowledge – the only one which can embrace the past and future of evolution and so contemplate, measure and fulfil them.
You can’t stop technology or science, and it is snowballing quicker than ever. Something’s got to come to a head. How? Who knows? But it will.
The worst state of affairs is when science begins to concern itself with art.
The main purpose of science is simplicity and as we understand more things, everything is becoming simpler.
I love weird science. I learned in an article in ‘National Geographic’ that there are trillions of bacteria in our guts that help us digest food. These are non-human creatures.
I’m basically a dinosaur. I don’t use e-mail. But I do recognize the importance of science and the resulting possibilities.
Einstein was searching for String Theory. It not only reconciles General Relativity to Quantum Mechanics, but it reconciles Science and the Bible as well.
Vanity of science. Knowledge of physical science will not console me for ignorance of morality in time of affliction, but knowledge of morality will always console me for ignorance of physical science.
Success is a science; if you have the conditions, you get the result.
Advertising is fundamentally persuasion and persuasion happens to be not a science, but an art.
I don’t join the New Atheists. So, for example, I wouldn’t have the arrogance to lecture some mother who hopes to see her dying child in Heaven – that’s none of my business, ultimately. I won’t lecture her on the philosophy of science.
Fashion is the science of appearance, and it inspires one with the desire to seem rather than to be.
Ah, the creative process is the same secret in science as it is in art. They are all the same absolutely.
I’ve always been interested in science – one of my favourite books is James Watson’s ‘Molecular Biology of the Gene.’
The distance between insanity and genius is measured only by success.
Before a war military science seems a real science, like astronomy; but after a war it seems more like astrology.
On the ordinary view of each species having been independently created, we gain no scientific explanation.
I do not believe in God; his existence has been disproved by Science. But in the concentration camp, I learned to believe in men.
Science is nothing, but trained and organized common sense.
There are no such things as applied sciences, only applications of science.
Carl Sagan spoke fluently between biology and geology and astrophysics and physics. If you move fluently across those boundaries, you realize that science is everywhere; science is not something you can step around or sweep under the rug.
My childhood and adolescence were filled with visiting scientists from both India and abroad, many of whom would stay with us. A life of science struck me as being both interesting and particularly international in its character.
In praising science, it does not follow that we must adopt the very poor philosophies which scientific men have constructed. In philosophy they have much more to learn than to teach.
Science fiction films are not about science. They are about disaster, which is one of the oldest subjects of art.
Rocket science is tough, and rockets have a way of failing.
Mathematical science shows what is. It is the language of unseen relations between things. But to use and apply that language, we must be able fully to appreciate, to feel, to seize the unseen, the unconscious.
It is a profound and necessary truth that the deep things in science are not found because they are useful: they are found because it was possible to find them.
When I find myself in the company of scientists, I feel like a shabby curate who has strayed by mistake into a room full of dukes.
Music is not math. It’s science. You keep mixing the stuff up until it blows up on you, or it becomes this incredible potion.
Touch a scientist and you touch a child.
I was a very keen reader of science fiction.
A second reason why science cannot replace judgement is the behavior of financial markets.
Science is global. Einstein’s equation, E=mc2, has to reach everywhere. Science is a beautiful gift to humanity, we should not distort it. Science does not differentiate between multiple races.
Science knows no country, because knowledge belongs to humanity, and is the torch which illuminates the world. Science is the highest personification of the nation because that nation will remain the first which carries the furthest the works of thought and intelligence.
The Athanasian Creed is to me light and intelligible reading in comparison with much that now passes for science.
There are worlds of experience beyond the world of the aggressive man, beyond history, and beyond science. The moods and qualities of nature and the revelations of great art are equally difficult to define; we can grasp them only in the depths of our perceptive spirit.
Individual science fiction stories may seem as trivial as ever to the blinder critics and philosophers of today – but the core of science fiction, its essence has become crucial to our salvation if we are to be saved at all.
If you’ve read a lot of vintage science fiction, as I have at one time or another in my life, you can’t help but realise how wrong we get it. I have gotten it wrong more times than I’ve gotten it right. But I knew that when I started; I knew that before I wrote a word of science fiction.
Almost everything that distinguishes the modern world from earlier centuries is attributable to science, which achieved its most spectacular triumphs in the seventeenth century.
But because we live in an age of science, we have a preoccupation with corroborating our myths.
Art is the beautiful way of doing things. Science is the effective way of doing things. Business is the economic way of doing things.
No great advance has been made in science, politics, or religion without controversy.
Definition of Statistics: The science of producing unreliable facts from reliable figures.
Sporting competitions seem to be what we obsess over, frankly. So if we can put engineering, science, technology into a format of healthy, fun competition, we can attract all sorts of kids that might not see the kind of activity we do as accessible or rewarding.
I like to learn. That’s an art and a science.
The cloning of humans is on most of the lists of things to worry about from Science, along with behaviour control, genetic engineering, transplanted heads, computer poetry and the unrestrained growth of plastic flowers.
But I don’t see myself as a woman in science. I see myself as a scientist.
I’ve actually started a number of businesses in my career. So I’m 28 currently, but when I was about 16, I started building Websites, and that’s how I put myself through school. I went to Duke with a degree in electrical engineering, computer science, computer engineering, and then to Princeton.
I went to MIT. I do rocket science. Being a mom is much harder.
Baking is both an art and a science.
When push comes to shove, it ain’t the science that’s going to lift you up – it’s the belief, the spiritual side of life, that’s going to lift you up, no matter what religion you are.
In science there is only physics; all the rest is stamp collecting.
Design and technology should be the subject where mathematical brainboxes and science whizzkids turn their bright ideas into useful products.
The strength of the scientific establishment in any country is related to its general level of education, not only in supplying large numbers of eager minds for further training, but also in ensuring a public opinion that holds science in esteem and approves financial support.
People think of the inventor as a screwball, but no one ever asks the inventor what he thinks of other people.
Only two things are infinite, the universe and human stupidity, and I’m not sure about the former.
Science is a cemetery of dead ideas.
Science is a differential equation. Religion is a boundary condition.
Eitan Hersh wrote a book in 2015 called ‘Hacking the Electorate.’ It’s pretty much the best book I’ve seen on the use of data science in U.S. elections and what good evidence shows works and does not work.
It is my belief that no matter how advanced man may become in science, technology, systems, and knowledge, he can never improve on the foundational precepts of marriage as the bedrock of social development.
If you believe in science, like I do, you believe that there are certain laws that are always obeyed.
Science has taught us, against all intuition, that apparently solid things like crystals and rocks are really almost entirely composed of empty space. And the familiar illustration is the nucleus of an atom is a fly in the middle of a sports stadium, and the next atom is in the next sports stadium.
And, that’s what I truly believe that we’re doing when we’re advancing scientific knowledge is we’re someday making the world better. Not only for our children, but for all people after that.
All science is based on models, and every scientific model comprises three distinct stages: statement of well-defined hypotheses; deduction of all the consequences of these hypotheses, and nothing but these consequences; confrontation of these consequences with observed data.
Science investigates; religion interprets. Science gives man knowledge which is power; religion gives man wisdom which is control.
Dream research is a wonderful field. All you do is sleep for a living.
To understand a science, it is necessary to know its history.
Going to rehearsals of school plays got me out of science. It became clear what inspired me and what dampened my spirit. The only other thing I could do at school was trampolining – it didn’t seem to have much future in it.
The literary trappings and moralizing of science fiction I find insufficiently compelling.
I consider myself a nerd. I love science and technology.
The capacity to be puzzled is the premise of all creation, be it in art or in science.
In science there are no ‘depths’; there is surface everywhere.
Science knows only one commandment – contribute to science.
The folly of mistaking a paradox for a discovery, a metaphor for a proof, a torrent of verbiage for a spring of capital truths, and oneself for an oracle, is inborn in us.
I have found far greater enthusiasm for science in America than here in Britain. There is more enthusiasm for everything in America.
We know evolution happened because innumerable bits of data from myriad fields of science conjoin to paint a rich portrait of life’s pilgrimage.
My brother is a scientist. He’s a professor at MIT. He brought science fiction into my world.
The conscience of the world is so guilty that it always assumes that people who investigate heresies must be heretics; just as if a doctor who studies leprosy must be a leper. Indeed, it is only recently that science has been allowed to study anything without reproach.
The usual approach of science of constructing a mathematical model cannot answer the questions of why there should be a universe for the model to describe. Why does the universe go to all the bother of existing?
The science supporting the relationship between carbohydrates and dementia is quite exciting, as it paves the way for lifestyle changes that can profoundly affect a person’s chances of remaining intact, at least from a brain perspective.
The biggest benefit of Apollo was the inspiration it gave to a growing generation to get into science and aerospace.
My desire to be a physician had a lot to do with that sense of medicine as a ministry of healing, not just a science. And not even just a science and an art, but also a calling, also a ministry.
‘Snow White’ is an old fairy tale, so obviously the idea of vanity and obsession with youth is long-standing. With today’s science, people have become crazy with trying to move their face around. It’s bizarre.
Science without religion is lame, religion without science is blind.
Skeptical scrutiny is the means, in both science and religion, by which deep thoughts can be winnowed from deep nonsense.
Aviation, this young modern giant, exemplifies the possible relationship of women and the creations of science. Although women have not taken full advantage of its use and benefits, air travel is as available to them as to men.
Boys do not evaluate a book. They divide books into categories. There are sexy books, war books, westerns, travel books, science fiction. A boy will accept anything from a section he knows rather than risk another sort. He has to have the label on the bottle to know it is the mixture as before.
Science is not a heartless pursuit of objective information. It is a creative human activity, its geniuses acting more as artists than as information processors.
Anthropology demands the open-mindedness with which one must look and listen, record in astonishment and wonder that which one would not have been able to guess.
Modern science, then, so far from being an enemy of romance, is seen on every hand to be its sympathetic and resourceful friend, its swift and irresistible helper in its serious need, and an indulgent minister to its lighter fancies.
The progress of science is strewn, like an ancient desert trail, with the bleached skeleton of discarded theories which once seemed to possess eternal life.
Science has revealed that the human body is made up of millions and millions of atoms… For example, I am made up of 5.8×10 27 atoms.
We need to have making, including computer science, shop, etc. as part of the core curriculum from the beginning, not just an optional afterschool thing. Things like First Robotics and all of those great programs need to become mainstream.
From the ages of five to twelve, I attended the Saint Laurence O’Toole elementary school in Lawrence, a city next to Methuen, and was taught by sisters of the Catholic order of Notre Dame de Namour. I enjoyed all my subjects there. I do not remember ever learning any science, except for mathematics.
Science and technology multiply around us. To an increasing extent they dictate the languages in which we speak and think. Either we use those languages, or we remain mute.
Science is fun. Science is curiosity. We all have natural curiosity. Science is a process of investigating. It’s posing questions and coming up with a method. It’s delving in.
We talk about the Internet. That comes from science. Weather forecasting. That comes from science. The main idea in all of biology is evolution. To not teach it to our young people is wrong.
With science fiction there’s endless possibilities.
The ‘science’ for which the United States is respected has nothing to do with the unscientific and baseless theory of evolution.
When I investigate and when I discover that the forces of the heavens and the planets are within ourselves, then truly I seem to be living among the gods.

We seem to have a compulsion these days to bury time capsules in order to give those people living in the next century or so some idea of what we are like.
It is through science that we prove, but through intuition that we discover.
The wealthy are always surrounded by hangers-on; science and art are as well.
Science is a wonderful thing if one does not have to earn one’s living at it.
Science is curiosity, testing and experimenting.
Just as the science and art of agriculture depend upon chemistry and botany, so the art of education depends upon physiology and psychology.
If I can get some student interested in science, if I can show members of the general public what’s going on up there in the space program, then my job’s been done.
Science is about knowing; engineering is about doing.
Girls are breaking barriers and boundaries every day in everything from sports and science to business and the creative arts.
I couldn’t have gotten sober without rehab because I needed the science.
A successful society is characterized by a rising living standard for its population, increasing investment in factories and basic infrastructure, and the generation of additional surplus, which is invested in generating new discoveries in science and technology.
But the first the general public learned about the discovery was the news of the destruction of Hiroshima by the atom bomb. A splendid achievement of science and technology had turned malign. Science became identified with death and destruction.
Bush reiterated his stand to conservatives opposing his decision on stem cell research. He said today he believes life begins at conception and ends at execution.
My personal conviction is that science is concerned wholly with truth, not with ethics.
I’m such a stereotypical female learner in that I love social studies and love literature, and I always struggled with math and science.
The difference between science and the fuzzy subjects is that science requires reasoning while those other subjects merely require scholarship.
In my 10th exams, I stood first with 80 percent but instead of picking science for my further studies, I chose arts… just so that I could continue to dance.
I went through the standard scientific atheist phase when I was about 14. I bought into that package deal of science equals atheism.
In the sick room, ten cents’ worth of human understanding equals ten dollars’ worth of medical science.
Electrical science has revealed to us the true nature of light, has provided us with innumerable appliances and instruments of precision, and has thereby vastly added to the exactness of our knowledge.
The whole of science is nothing more than a refinement of everyday thinking.
The science fiction method is dissection and reconstruction.
Science, almost from its beginnings, has been truly international in character. National prejudices disappear completely in the scientist’s search for truth.
What is required of a working hypothesis is a fine capacity for discrimination.
There does not exist a category of science to which one can give the name applied science. There are science and the applications of science, bound together as the fruit of the tree which bears it.
In science, nothing is ever 100% proven.
Scientific theory is a contrived foothold in the chaos of living phenomena.
Usually, girls weren’t encouraged to go to college and major in math and science. My high school calculus teacher, Ms. Paz Jensen, made math appealing and motivated me to continue studying it in college.
Extra dimensional theories are sometimes considered science fiction with equations. I think that’s a wrong attitude. I think extra dimensions are with us, they are with us to stay, and they entered physics a long time ago. They are not going to go away.
Science, in the broadest sense, includes all reasonable claims to knowledge about ourselves and the world.
Travel stories teach geography; insect stories lead the child into natural science; and so on. The teacher, in short, can use reading to introduce her pupils to the most varied subjects; and the moment they have been thus started, they can go on to any limit guided by the single passion for reading.
I love having my hands in the dirt. It is never a science and always an art. There are no rules. And if it comes down to me versus that weed I’m trying to pull out of the ground that doesn’t want to come out? I know I’ll win.
The word ‘universe’ is obviously not intended to have a plural, but science has evolved in such a way that we need a plural noun for something similar to what we ordinarily call our universe.
The radical novelty of modern science lies precisely in the rejection of the belief… that the forces which move the stars and atoms are contingent upon the preferences of the human heart.
My passion for innovation and my interest in the ‘business of science’ has seen Biocon commercialize many innovative platforms and products.
Science is not a thing. It’s a verb. It’s a way of thinking about things. It’s a way of looking for natural explanations for all phenomena.
Is science of any value? I think a power to do something is of value. Whether the result is a good thing or a bad thing depends on how it is used, but the power is a value.
Equipped with his five senses, man explores the universe around him and calls the adventure Science.
One of the things that I love to do is travel around the world and look at archaeological sites. Because archaeology gives us an opportunity to study past civilizations, and see where they succeeded and where they failed. Use science to, you know, work backwards and say, ‘Well, really, what were they thinking?’
It’s funny, I hear people say I’m faking all this science stuff. That’s the furthest thing from the truth. It’s literally what I have to do to play and perform at this level.
Darwin gives courage to the rest of science that we shall end up understanding literally everything, springing from almost nothing – a thought extremely hard to comprehend and believe.
Computer science teaches and nurtures the type of thinking that 21st century citizens will need to address 21st century issues. We cannot know with any certainty what those challenges will be, but we can arm our students with the tools needed to address them.
Science fiction and fantasy is a kind of literature that embodies the highest aspirations of the human race.
Jurisdictions across the U.S. are snapping up algorithms as tools to help judges make bail and bond decisions. They’re being sold as race- and gender-neutral assessments that allow judges to use science in determining whether someone will behave if released from jail pending trial.
Neuroscience is a baby science, a mere century old, and our scientific understanding of the brain is nowhere near where we’d like it to be. We know more about the moons of Jupiter than what is inside of our skulls.
The best scientist is open to experience and begins with romance – the idea that anything is possible.
And finally, no matter how good the science gets, there are problems that inevitably depend on judgement, on art, on a feel for financial markets.
Nothing retains less of desire in art, in science, than this will to industry, booty, possession.
If we wish to make a new world we have the material ready. The first one, too, was made out of chaos.
We must teach science in the mother tongue. Otherwise, science will become a highbrow activity. It will not be an activity in which all people can participate.
I read a lot of science fiction, but I also mixed it up with a lot of other genres: crime, literary fiction, as well as nonfiction. Author-wise, I’m a fan of Stephen King, Lauren Beukes, Robert McCammon, Raymond Chandler, Greg Rucka, Ed Brubaker and Gail Simone, among many others.
The chances of Israeli science competing with big American science are small. For almost 15 years, we had no competition.
The facts of science are real enough, and so are the techniques that scientists use, and so are the technologies based on them. But the belief system that governs conventional scientific thinking is an act of faith.
In the ’70s and ’80s there was an attempt in K-12 to teach science through art or art through science. The challenge today is how do you build the ethos of art and design into the academy of science.
I did, although I didn’t read from page 1 to page 187 but I read chunks of it. I did a little bit of science when I was in the university so I was able to understand the graphs and pie charts and stuff like that. It was extremely dry.
What is a scientist after all? It is a curious man looking through a keyhole, the keyhole of nature, trying to know what’s going on.
The challenge of pollution and global warming is no longer the science, or the rate of innovation, but the rate of implementation: We have the clean solutions; now let’s bundle them and install them.
Before I lost my voice, it was slurred, so only those close to me could understand, but with the computer voice, I found I could give popular lectures. I enjoy communicating science. It is important that the public understands basic science, if they are not to leave vital decisions to others.
Food is art and science. So, you take something out, you have to work with the recipe to make sure that you’re providing delicious food with cleaner labels.
Medical science has proven time and again that when the resources are provided, great progress in the treatment, cure, and prevention of disease can occur.
In science, read by preference the newest works. In literature, read the oldest. The classics are always modern.
Schools ought to teach students to challenge secular ideologies masquerading as science in the classroom.
It is easier for a libertarian to attack the science of global warming than to alter one’s core libertarian beliefs.
There cannot be any impediment to science that will ultimately be good to the general public.
No science is immune to the infection of politics and the corruption of power.
Science is for those who learn, poetry is for those who know.
GIS, in its digital manifestation of geography, goes beyond just the science. It provides us a framework and a process for applying geography. It brings together observational science and measurement and integrates it with modeling and prediction, analysis, and interpretation so that we can understand things.
Software Engineering might be science; but that’s not what I do. I’m a hacker, not an engineer.
Being an economist is the least ethical profession, closer to charlatanism than any science.
I needed a lot of the good things that church provided. But as I grew older, it became increasingly hard for me to rationalize the importance of church in my life with the beliefs that it required that were at odds with modern science.
Blind faith, no matter how passionately expressed, will not suffice. Science for its part will test relentlessly every assumption about the human condition.
We especially need imagination in science.
‘Healing,’ Papa would tell me, ‘is not a science, but the intuitive art of wooing nature.’
The human brain is an incredible pattern-matching machine.
Science may never come up with a better office communication system than the coffee break.
Scientists have become the bearers of the torch of discovery in our quest for knowledge.
I’m a science guy. I’m a geek. I love geology and botany and marine science. I thought maybe I’d be a professional guide, or maybe even a park ranger, working for the Department of Fish and Game.
The church saves sinners, but science seeks to stop their manufacture.
I hold that the propositions embodied in natural science are not derived by any definite rule from the data of experience, and that they can neither be verified nor falsified by experience according to any definite rule.
Every science is a profane restatement of the preceding dogmas of the religious period.
The true teachers and educators are not those who have learned pedagogy as the science of dealing with children, but those in whom pedagogy has awakened through understanding the human being.
If science fiction is the mythology of modern technology, then its myth is tragic.
As a number of people have stressed over the years, I think it would be premature to assume science itself will explain everything.
If history and science have taught us anything, it is that passion and desire are not the same as truth.
I graduated from the University of Delaware with a double major in history and political science.
I studied political science and international relations, so I never considered myself an artist.
Life science is an investment for the future.
Before we understand science, it is natural to believe that God created the universe.
Scientific knowledge is a kind of discourse.
Nothing matters but the facts. Without them, the science of criminal investigation is nothing more than a guessing game.
For an object under the eye will appear very different from the same object placed above it; in an inclosed space, very different from the same in an open space.
Rocket science has been mythologized all out of proportion to its true difficulty.
There is a fifth dimension, beyond that which is known to man. It is a dimension as vast as space and as timeless as infinity. It is the middle ground between light and shadow, between science and superstition.
Science, like art, religion, commerce, warfare, and even sleep, is based on presuppositions.
Sometime in the future, science will be able to create realities that we can’t even begin to imagine. As we evolve, we’ll be able to construct other information systems that correspond to other realities, universes based on logic completely different from ours and not based on space and time.
He who would do good to another must do it in Minute Particulars: general Good is the plea of the scoundrel, hypocrite, and flatterer, for Art and Science cannot exist but in minutely organized Particulars.
Unfortunately the global warming hysteria, as I see it, is driven by politics more than by science.
Let’s say intelligence is your ability to compose poetry, symphonies, do art, math and science. Chimps can’t do any of that, yet we share 99 percent DNA. Everything that we are, that distinguishes us from chimps, emerges from that one-percent difference.
When we see the shadow on our images, are we seeing the time 11 minutes ago on Mars? Or are we seeing the time on Mars as observed from Earth now? It’s like time travel problems in science fiction. When is now; when was then?
To will what God doth will, that is the only science that gives us any rest.
Transhumanism is the ethics and science of using things like biological and genetic engineering to transform our bodies and make us a more powerful species.
There’s no doubt that inequality destabilizes societies. I think the social science evidence on that front is crystal clear.
The philosophy of the school was quite simple – the bright boys specialised in Latin, the not so bright in science and the rest managed with geography or the like.
Religion, as it is understood in the West, does not lead toward progress, and science does not lead toward humanism.
Theory helps us to bear our ignorance of facts.
At its heart, engineering is about using science to find creative, practical solutions. It is a noble profession.
The most obvious characteristic of science is its application: the fact that, as a consequence of science, one has a power to do things. And the effect this power has had need hardly be mentioned. The whole industrial revolution would almost have been impossible without the development of science.
There must be no barriers to freedom of inquiry. There is no place for dogma in science. The scientist is free, and must be free to ask any question, to doubt any assertion, to seek for any evidence, to correct any errors.
Fashion is more about feel than science.
Half of the modern drugs could well be thrown out of the window, except that the birds might eat them.
I’ve been programming computers since elementary school, where they taught us, and I stuck with computer science through high school and college.
I first read science fiction in the old British Chum annual when I was about 12 years old.
The credit which the apparent conformity with recognized scientific standards can gain for seemingly simple but false theories may, as the present instance shows, have grave consequences.
Normal science does not aim at novelties of fact or theory and, when successful, finds none.
Even if you only want to write science fiction, you should also read mysteries, poetry, mainstream literature, history, biography, philosophy, and science.
At Tencent, we may be businessmen, but we are still chasing our IT, our science. We are still striving to create something really cool, trying to create things we couldn’t even imagine without our new technologies. I am still clinging to this enthusiasm.
There is no way that writers can be tamed and rendered civilized or even cured. The only solution known to science is to provide the patient with an isolation room, where he can endure the acute stages in private and where food can be poked in to him with a stick.
Natural science will in time incorporate into itself the science of man, just as the science of man will incorporate into itself natural science: there will be one science.
What is research but a blind date with knowledge?
The fundamental concept in social science is Power, in the same sense in which Energy is the fundamental concept in physics.
Everything great in science and art is simple. What can be less complicated than the greatest discoveries of humanity – gravitation, the compass, the printing press, the steam engine, the electric telegraph?
When I was in 7th grade, we were all given an exam. It was science and math, and the boys who did well were skipped ahead so that when they got to be juniors or seniors in high school they would be able to go to the local community college and take calculus and physics there. And I wasn’t skipped ahead.
Leaders in China and India realize that science and technology lead to success and wealth. But many countries in the West graduate students into the unemployment line by teaching skills that were necessary to live in 1950.
I say you don’t need religion, or political ideology, to understand human nature. Science reveals that human nature is greedy and selfish, altruistic and helpful.
Science fiction writers put characters into a world with arbitrary rules and work out what happens.
There is nothing which can better deserve your patronage, than the promotion of science and literature. Knowledge is in every country the surest basis of public happiness.

Scientists worldwide agree that the reduction needed to stabilize the climate is actually more like 80 percent.
Science fiction is filled with Martians and space travel to other planets, and things like that.
Nothing has such power to broaden the mind as the ability to investigate systematically and truly all that comes under thy observation in life.
We have found that where science has progressed the farthest, the mind has but regained from nature that which the mind put into nature.
I had no talent for science. What was infinitely worse: all my fraternity brothers were engineers.
I deeply respect literature and expect to gain insight from a book and to identify emotionally with its characters. I therefore avoid reading suspense novels or science fiction.
Science, as illustrated by the printing press, the telegraph, the railway, is a double-edged sword. At the same moment that it puts an enormous power in the hands of the good man, it also offers an equal advantage to the evil disposed.
Few tragedies can be more extensive than the stunting of life, few injustices deeper than the denial of an opportunity to strive or even to hope, by a limit imposed from without, but falsely identified as lying within.
Science and technology revolutionize our lives, but memory, tradition and myth frame our response.
It’s a combination of science, maintenance, and general housekeeping. And then, occasionally, robotics activities or a spacewalk you might get to do.
Art is the tree of life. Science is the tree of death.
Freedom is the oxygen without which science cannot breathe.
I’ve always been on a quest to use science in an artful way.
The heart of science is measurement.
The man of science is a poor philosopher.
I describe management as arts, crafts and science. It is a practice that draws on arts, craft and science and there is a lot of craft – meaning experience – there is a certain amount of craft meaning insight, creativity and vision, and there is the use of science, technique or analysis.
Science has not yet mastered prophecy. We predict too much for the next year and yet far too little for the next 10.
Truth in science can be defined as the working hypothesis best suited to open the way to the next better one.
Anyone who attempts to generate random numbers by deterministic means is, of course, living in a state of sin.
False facts are highly injurious to the progress of science, for they often endure long; but false views, if supported by some evidence, do little harm, for every one takes a salutary pleasure in proving their falseness.
Science never makes things that do not have to do with what we feel, by which I mean what we want and what we fear.
You should never bet against anything in science at odds of more than about 1012 to 1.
Chocolate milk has everything I need in a drink: the carbs, the protein, and the electrolytes. It’s even backed by science, showing how you’re able to recover. I can speak from experience, this is what I drink.
I learned that despite having years and years of experience in math and computer science and so on, I didn’t really know how to code until I formed a company.
I believe economic growth should translate into the happiness and progress of all. Along with it, there should be development of art and culture, literature and education, science and technology. We have to see how to harness the many resources of India for achieving common good and for inclusive growth.
Music is an intrinsic part of life; therefore, it is important to transport different forms of artistic expression, science, and mathematics into compositions.
Humanity has experienced many revolutionary changes over the course of history: revolutions in agriculture, in science, industrial production, as well as numerous political revolutions. But these have all been limited to the external aspects of our individual and collective lives.
Science began as one of the noblest expressions of man’s reason. It will continue to serve humanity so long as it never forgets that human beings remain the heart of its purpose.
If anyone offers conjectures about the truth of things from the mere possibility of hypotheses, I do not see by what stipulation anything certain can be determined in any science, since one or another set of hypotheses may always be devised which will appear to supply new difficulties.
The art and science of asking questions is the source of all knowledge.
Let both sides seek to invoke the wonders of science instead of its terrors. Together let us explore the stars, conquer the deserts, eradicate disease, tap the ocean depths, and encourage the arts and commerce.
Fiction is not necessarily about what you know, it’s about how you feel. That is the truth about fiction, and the other truth is that all science is a tool, and we use our tools not to actualise what we know, but to implement how we feel.
As in biomedical science, pioneering industrial inventions have not been mothered by necessity. Rather, inventions for which there was no commercial use only later became the commercial airplanes, xerography and lasers on which modern society depends.
In the big picture, architecture is the art and science of making sure that our cities and buildings fit with the way we want to live our lives.
Science is exploration. The fundamental nature of exploration is that we don’t know what’s there. We can guess and hope and aim to find out certain things, but we have to expect surprises.
Pitching is both an art and a science.
The space station here is a magical place and an incredible science facility.
The most important thing we can do is inspire young minds and to advance the kind of science, math and technology education that will help youngsters take us to the next phase of space travel.
Science is a first-rate piece of furniture for a man’s upper chamber, if he has common sense on the ground-floor. But if a man hasn’t got plenty of good common sense, the more science he has, the worse for his patient.
Unlike scientism, science in the true sense of the word is open to unbiased investigation of any existing phenomena.
Borrowing knowledge of reality from all sources, taking the best from every study, Science of Mind brings together the highest enlightenment of the ages.
Looking ahead, I believe that the underlying importance of higher education, of science, of technology, of research and scholarship to our quality of life, to the strength of our economy, to our security in many dimensions will continue to be the most important message.
I dislike literary jargon and never use it. Criticism has only one function and that is to help readers read and understand literature. It is not a science, it is an aid to art.
I like to tweet out nutrition research because I did my bachelor of science degree in dietetics.
To me, the most shocking thing about grit is how little we know, how little science knows, about building it. Every day, parents and teachers ask me, ‘How do I build grit in kids? What do I do to teach kids a solid work ethic? How do I keep them motivated for the long run?’ The honest answer is, I don’t know.
You could warm Mars up, over time, with greenhouse gases.
Astronomers have been bewildered by the theory of an expanding universe, but there is no less expansion in the moral infinite of the universe of man. As far as the frontiers of science are pushed back, over the extended arc of these frontiers one will hear the poet’s hounds on the chase.
We have to realize that science is a double-edged sword. One edge of the sword can cut against poverty, illness, disease and give us more democracies, and democracies never war with other democracies, but the other side of the sword could give us nuclear proliferation, biogerms and even forces of darkness.
The mission of the Ruby Bridges Foundation is to create educational opportunities like science camp that allow children from different racial, cultural, and socio-economic backgrounds to build lasting relationships.
Science does not know its debt to imagination.
The selfsame procedure which zoology, a branch of the natural sciences, applies to the study of animals, anthropology must apply to the study of man; and by doing so, it enrolls itself as a science in the field of nature.
I feel like the thing we can do is celebrate people doing great work and create more cultural momentum and awareness that this is an important thing in the world. So when the next economic crisis hits and people are talking about where to cut from the budget, science isn’t the thing.
I’m concentrating on staying healthy, having peace, being happy, remembering what is important, taking in nature and animals, spending time reading, trying to understand the universe, where science and the spiritual meet.
Drafting is not only an art, but there’s a degree of science as well.
I don’t want to give advice to people about their religious beliefs, but I do think that it’s not smart to bet against the power of science to figure out the natural world. It used to be, a thousand years ago, that if you wanted to explain why the moon moved through the sky, you needed to invoke God.
Science is magic that works.
The spending in science and technology need to be to increased.
Unlike science, creationism cannot predict anything, and it cannot provide satisfactory answers about the past.
The whole idea of how people will learn computer science, I believe will be through game development.
The planet’s hope and salvation lies in the adoption of revolutionary new knowledge being revealed at the frontiers of science.
People who believe in science have a hard time believing in ghosts and the supernatural.
There’s no question that as science, knowledge and technology advance, that we will attempt to do more significant things. And there’s no question that we will always have to temper those things with ethics.
When it comes to art and science, people don’t like a lot of either. Instead of being open to it, they’re closed off about it.
The doctor has been taught to be interested not in health but in disease. What the public is taught is that health is the cure for disease.
I’m a geophysicist and all my earth science books when I was a student, I had to give the wrong answer to get an A. We used to ridicule continental drift. It was something we laughed at. We learned of Marshall Kay’s geosynclinal cycle, which is a bunch of crap.
You can be creative in anything – in math, science, engineering, philosophy – as much as you can in music or in painting or in dance.
I thought it must be pure science fiction. But when I checked it out I found a lot of magazine articles that actually supported the theory behind the book which was incredible. That’s when I decided to acquire the rights of the book and everything went from there.
Vexillography is a very big word! Vexillography is really the high science and art and understanding of flags and their history – the academic word for flag making and heraldry.
I was not an anthropology student prior to the war. I took it up as part of a personal readjustment following some bewildering experiences as an infantryman and later as a prisoner of war in Dresden, Germany. The science of the Study of Man has been extremely satisfactory from that personal standpoint.
I think there is a tendency in science to measure what is measurable and to decide that what you cannot measure must be uninteresting.
As long as men are free to ask what they must, free to say what they think, free to think what they will, freedom can never be lost and science can never regress.
Though I believe in God, I don’t believe in religion for everybody. Some people who are a little weak and don’t want to shoulder any responsibility need Catholicism. For people at the other extreme, there is Christian Science… I think a powerful conscience is worth all the religions put together.
Most people say that it is the intellect which makes a great scientist. They are wrong: it is character.
Logic is neither an art nor a science but a dodge.
The Nobel prizes memorialize Alfred Nobel’s faith in the contribution that human thought, directed to science and art, can make to human welfare.
The difference between science and the arts is not that they are different sides of the same coin even, or even different parts of the same continuum, but rather, they are manifestations of the same thing. The arts and sciences are avatars of human creativity.
As a scientist, I don’t believe science will ever discover whether God exists. Nor do I believe religion will ever prove it.
As a practicing neurologist, I place central importance in applying current science to the notion of disease prevention.
I believe in general in a dualism between facts and the ideas of those facts in human heads.
I grew up in Saudi Arabia and India and Cyprus, and I lived in a war-zone myself, and, I mean, I had a pretty bizarre, I guess, nomadic childhood, and so I was really drawn to international relations and political science.
Science has not been successful by making up explanations of things that fit with the current social fabric.
Science literacy is the artery through which the solutions of tomorrow’s problems flow.
Science is what you know, philosophy is what you don’t know.

Science is always discovering odd scraps of magical wisdom and making a tremendous fuss about its cleverness.
I’ve read plenty of amazing science pieces where the writers don’t hang out in labs. I just have fun doing it. And I get rewarded for it; I get gushy, especially when kids tell me they expected to be bored by my books, but weren’t.
Science may be described as the art of systematic over-simplification.
Sadly, embryonic stem cell research is completely legal in this country and has been going on at universities and research facilities for years.
Many of the mainstream agricultural scientists, especially at the agricultural schools, but at all of our major universities, are tied into all sorts of contractual relationships and consulting relationships with the life science companies.
Nothing in the universe can travel at the speed of light, they say, forgetful of the shadow’s speed.
What I do is not rocket science, but I sure do love it.
Science is a tool, and we invent tools to do things we want. It’s a question of how those tools are used by people.
Science is international: the best scientists can come from anywhere; they can come from next door, or they can come from a small village in a country anywhere in the world – we need to make it easier.
Being a Christian, I’m eager to introduce people to Jesus. I just don’t think I should do it in the science classroom.
Like all science, psychology is knowledge; and like science again, it is knowledge of a definite thing, the mind.
Mars has been flown by, orbited, smacked into, radar inspected, and rocketed onto, as well as bounced upon, rolled over, shoveled, drilled into, baked, and even laser blasted.
It vexes me when they would constrain science by the authority of the Scriptures, and yet do not consider themselves bound to answer reason and experiment.
It’s become a running joke among the public, and liberals have lost all credibility when it comes to climate science because their arguments have become so ridiculous and so obviously disconnected from reality.
If the facts don’t fit the theory, change the facts.
Science is increasingly answering questions that used to be the province of religion.
It was my dream to come to Oxford and study political science.
I sort of mind living in a time when most of the literature is terribly personal. I suppose it’s because I grew up on a love of history, philosophy, science and religion, but not to think too much about yourself.
I always knew I wanted to be a technologist, so I went to Duke and got a degree in computer science and electrical engineering. Really, I thought my goal in life was to be an inventor, a problem solver, so I thought I needed a Ph.D. to be good at inventions, but it turns out that you don’t.
Every known fact in natural science was divined by the presentiment of somebody, before it was actually verified.
I’ve finished 12th standard from Poddar International and enrolled for B.A. in political science in Cambridge University, London. It’s a correspondence course, and I’ll go to London for my exams once a year. That way, I can devote more time to films.
Science has not yet taught us if madness is or is not the sublimity of the intelligence.
There is no significant man-made Global Warming underway and the science on which the computer projections of weather chaos are based is badly flawed.
! want to leverage the creativity of researchers across mathematics, statistics, data mining, computer science, biology, medicine, and the public at large.
My degree is in biology, and it will always be my first love. Evolution, ecology, genetics – they were the textbooks I was devouring as a teenager, and it was there that my love of science grew.
Some dreamers demand that scientists only discover things that can be used for good.
A science which does not bring us nearer to God is worthless.
I am often amazed at how much more capability and enthusiasm for science there is among elementary school youngsters than among college students.
Science is imagination in the service of the verifiable truth, and that service is indeed communal. It cannot be rigidly planned. Rather, it requires freedom and courage and the plural contributions of many different kinds of people who must maintain their individuality while giving to the group.
There’s nothing I believe in more strongly than getting young people interested in science and engineering, for a better tomorrow, for all humankind.
Facts are the air of scientists. Without them you can never fly.
It is not enough to know your craft – you have to have feeling. Science is all very well, but for us imagination is worth far more.
There is no stronger case for the motivational power of real science than the discoveries that come from the Hubble Space Telescope as it unravels the mysteries of the universe.
One could write a history of science in reverse by assembling the solemn pronouncements of highest authority about what could not be done and could never happen.

To me there has never been a higher source of earthly honor or distinction than that connected with advances in science.
Science and technology are going to be the basis for many of the solutions to social problems.

What is the intersection between technology, art and science? Curiosity and wonder, because it drives us to explore, because we’re surrounded by things we can’t see.
Ever since the Industrial Revolution, investments in science and technology have proved to be reliable engines of economic growth. If homegrown interest in those fields is not regenerated soon, the comfortable lifestyle to which Americans have become accustomed will draw to a rapid close.
Only by ignorance is science threatened.
Science is the search for truth, that is the effort to understand the world: it involves the rejection of bias, of dogma, of revelation, but not the rejection of morality.
I’ve never thought of acting as rocket science – you put on the costume, get your hair cut, and that’s it, really.
Science will explain how but not why. It talks about what is, not what ought to be. Science is descriptive, not prescriptive; it can tell us about causes but it cannot tell us about purposes. Indeed, science disavows purposes.
When a scientist is ahead of his times, it is often through misunderstanding of current, rather than intuition of future truth. In science there is never any error so gross that it won’t one day, from some perspective, appear prophetic.
When radium was discovered, no one knew that it would prove useful in hospitals. The work was one of pure science. And this is a proof that scientific work must not be considered from the point of view of the direct usefulness of it.
If you go to planetary science meetings and hear technical talks on Pluto, you will hear experts calling it a planet every day.
Nothing is less important than which fork you use. Etiquette is the science of living. It embraces everything. It is ethics. It is honor.
Your theory is crazy, but it’s not crazy enough to be true.
Boxing is the sweet science. You hit and not get hit. There’s no reward for you to hit me more than I hit you other than on the scorecards.
This means that to entrust to science – or to deliberate control according to scientific principles – more than scientific method can achieve may have deplorable effects.
Science predicts that many different kinds of universe will be spontaneously created out of nothing. It is a matter of chance which we are in.
Although the theory of relativity makes the greatest of demands on the ability for abstract thought, still it fulfills the traditional requirements of science insofar as it permits a division of the world into subject and object (observer and observed) and, hence, a clear formulation of the law of causality.
The science of today is the technology of tomorrow.
Advertising: the science of arresting the human intelligence long enough to get money from it.
Mythology and science both extend the scope of human beings. Like science and technology, mythology, as we shall see, is not about opting out of this world, but about enabling us to live more intensely within it.
Science is the key to our future, and if you don’t believe in science, then you’re holding everybody back.
I’ve lost my faith in science.
Inanimate objects can be classified scientifically into three major categories; those that don’t work, those that break down and those that get lost.
But man has still another powerful resource: natural science with its strictly objective methods.
Society lives by faith, and develops by science.
In the seventeenth century, the science of medicine had not wholly cut asunder from astrology and necromancy; and the trusting Christian still believed in some occult influences, chiefly planetary, which governed not only his crops but his health and life.
We’ve arranged a civilization in which most crucial elements profoundly depend on science and technology.
Galileo was no idiot. Only an idiot could believe that science requires martyrdom – that may be necessary in religion, but in time a scientific result will establish itself.
I have seen firsthand that agricultural science has enormous potential to increase the yields of small farmers and lift them out of hunger and poverty.
Science is the most durable and nondivisive way of thinking about the human circumstance. It transcends cultural, national, and political boundaries. You don’t have American science versus Canadian science versus Japanese science.
To pursue science is not to disparage the things of the spirit. In fact, to pursue science rightly is to furnish the framework on which the spirit may rise.
The science of the mind can only have for its proper goal the understanding of human nature by every human being, and through its use, brings peace to every human soul.
The characteristic of scientific progress is our knowing that we did not know.
The government will see that human spaceflight is useful – for science and the economy – and inspirational.
He who possesses art and science has religion; he who does not possess them, needs religion.
Shun no toil to make yourself remarkable by some talent or other; yet do not devote yourself to one branch exclusively. Strive to get clear notions about all. Give up no science entirely; for science is but one.
Science, as opposed to technology, does violence to common sense.
Everything, however complicated – breaking waves, migrating birds, and tropical forests – is made of atoms and obeys the equations of quantum physics. But even if those equations could be solved, they wouldn’t offer the enlightenment that scientists seek. Each science has its own autonomous concepts and laws.
An AI utopia is a place where people have income guaranteed because their machines are working for them. Instead, they focus on activities that they want to do, that are personally meaningful like art or, where human creativity still shines, in science.
Physics does not change the nature of the world it studies, and no science of behavior can change the essential nature of man, even though both sciences yield technologies with a vast power to manipulate the subject matters.
One can not impede scientific progress.
He is so old that his blood type was discontinued.
Science is the quintessential international endeavour, and the sterling reputation of the Nobel awards is partly due to the widely-perceived lack of national and other biases in the selection of the laureates.
Today, education does not give you the wisdom and the understanding; it only indoctrinates you to believe something. So the mind knows very less but accepts so many things; it may be science, it may be technology, it may be anything.
The world is full of strange phenomena that cannot be explained by the laws of logic or science. Dennis Rodman is only one example.
Whence come I and whither go I? That is the great unfathomable question, the same for every one of us. Science has no answer to it.
Imagination is the Discovering Faculty, pre-eminently. It is that which penetrates into the unseen worlds around us, the worlds of Science.
I was raised on comic books, and I love science fiction.
Research is what I’m doing when I don’t know what I’m doing.
The more people we can attract to science and technology – men, women, everybody – the more economic opportunity we have as a nation.
Virtual reality, all the A.I. work we do, all the robotics work we do – we’re as close to realizing science fiction as it gets.
Politics is not an exact science. That’s why in school I loved mathematics. Everything in mathematics was clear to me.
The whole history of science has been the gradual realization that events do not happen in an arbitrary manner, but that they reflect a certain underlying order, which may or may not be divinely inspired.
Freedom is absolutely necessary for the progress in science and the liberal arts.
By denying scientific principles, one may maintain any paradox.
Science, as everyone knows, is responsible, moderate, unsentimental, and otherwise good.
The origin of life is one of the great outstanding mysteries of science.
We live in a time when science is validating what humans have known throughout the ages: that compassion is not a luxury; it is a necessity for our well-being, resilience, and survival.
My preparation is about precision. It is a science.
Books are the money of Literature, but only the counters of Science.
Science is organized knowledge.
Science fiction writers foresee the inevitable, and although problems and catastrophes may be inevitable, solutions are not.
Truth is of no practical value to mankind save as it affects terrestrial phenomena, hence the discoveries of science should be concealed or glossed over wherever they conflict with orthodoxy.
In nature, when you conduct science, it is the natural world that is the ultimate decider in what is true and what is not.
Science fiction is not quirky anymore; we live in a futuristic world now.
It is inexcusable for scientists to torture animals; let them make their experiments on journalists and politicians.
The whole of science, and one is tempted to think the whole of the life of any thinking man, is trying to come to terms with the relationship between yourself and the natural world. Why are you here, and how do you fit in, and what’s it all about.
In science, if you don’t do it, somebody else will. Whereas in art, if Beethoven didn’t compose the ‘Ninth Symphony,’ no one else before or after is going to compose the ‘Ninth Symphony’ that he composed; no one else is going to paint ‘Starry Night’ by van Gogh.
Raising children is a creative endeavor, an art rather than a science.
If we long to believe that the stars rise and set for us, that we are the reason there is a Universe, does science do us a disservice in deflating our conceits?
Science and technology are a propellant for building a thriving country, and the happiness of the people and the future of the country hinge on their development.
I’m fascinated by the business of belief, obviously, because it’s so ever present with humanity anyway. And, you know, when you have science, which constantly talks of proofs, you have religion, which constantly talks of beliefs and faith and so on.
Learn about the world, the way it works, any kind of science and anthropology, it’s really an interesting place we live in. Evolution is a really fantastic idea, even more than the idea of God I think.
We should be increasing research and development into our fossil fuel program.
Curiosity – the rover and the concept – is what science is all about: the quest to reveal the unknown.
To try to write a grand cosmical drama leads necessarily to myth. To try to let knowledge substitute ignorance in increasingly larger regions of space and time is science.
We know from science that nothing in the universe exists as an isolated or independent entity.
In art, as in science, reductionism does not trivialize our perception – of color, light, and perspective – but allows us to see each of these components in a new way.
Science, already oppressive with its shocking revelations, will perhaps be the ultimate exterminator of our human species – if separate species we be – for its reserve of unguessed horrors could never be borne by mortal brains if loosed upon the world.
We read to our kids at bedtime because we want to have literacy, but what are we doing to make sure kids are equally fascinated by science?
In science one tries to tell people, in such a way as to be understood by everyone, something that no one ever knew before. But in poetry, it’s the exact opposite.
Science is the highest personification of the nation because that nation will remain the first which carries the furthest the works of thought and intelligence.
If civilization is to survive, we must cultivate the science of human relationships – the ability of all peoples, of all kinds, to live together, in the same world at peace.
My older brother was the person who got me interested in science in general. He used to tell me what he learned in school. My first memory of mathematics is probably the time that he told me about the problem of adding numbers from 1 to 100.
In England, an inventor is regarded almost as a crazy man, and in too many instances, invention ends in disappointment and poverty. In America, an inventor is honoured, help is forthcoming, and the exercise of ingenuity, the application of science to the work of man, is there the shortest road to wealth.
There is no complete theory of anything.
Years of science fiction have produced a mindset that it is human destiny to expand from Earth, to the Moon, to Mars, to the stars.
Science is a beautiful gift to humanity; we should not distort it.
The humanities need to be defended today against the encroachments of physical science, as they once needed to be against the encroachment of theology.
Science grows like a weed every year.
I don’t wanna learn about more science and math. That’s not why I’m going to college.
There is nothing wrong with good accounting, except that it does not necessarily lead to good science.
There will one day spring from the brain of science a machine or force so fearful in its potentialities, so absolutely terrifying, that even man, the fighter, who will dare torture and death in order to inflict torture and death, will be appalled, and so abandon war forever.
Ask a science professor what she worries about. It won’t take long. She’ll look you in the eye and say one word: ‘Money.’
I liked math – that was my favorite subject – and I was very interested in astronomy and in physical science.
Politics is not an exact science.
Modern science is predicated on ‘truths’ verified through accurate observation and measurements of physical world phenomena.
Everything is theoretically impossible, until it is done.
I think horror or science fiction is another way of telling a modern myth – it’s like Ancient Greece; it’s like kids couldn’t wait for the next ‘Orpheus’ story, the next ‘Jason and the Argonauts.’
Science is organized knowledge. Wisdom is organized life.
Incorporating science, technology, engineering, analytics and medicine to athletes’ training and development not just at elite level but basing it right at the grassroots level is important.
What are the symbols of American strength, wealth, power and modernity? Certainly not jazz and rock and roll, not chewing-gum or hamburgers, Broadway or Hollywood. It’s their skyscrapers. Their Pentagon. Their science. Their technology.
Most people don’t realize it, because they’re invisible, but microbes make up about a half of the Earth’s biomass, whereas all animals only make up about one one-thousandth of all the biomass.
It is a good morning exercise for a research scientist to discard a pet hypothesis every day before breakfast. It keeps him young.
Biology is the science. Evolution is the concept that makes biology unique.
The poker player learns that sometimes both science and common sense are wrong; that the bumblebee can fly; that, perhaps, one should never trust an expert; that there are more things in Heaven and Earth than are dreamt of by those with an academic bent.
Except in very narrow cases, where there’s breakthrough science that needs patent production, worrying about competitors is a waste of time. If you can’t out iterate someone who is trying to copy you, you’re toast anyway.
The scientist is motivated primarily by curiosity and a desire for truth.
Computer science inverts the normal. In normal science, you’re given a world, and your job is to find out the rules. In computer science, you give the computer the rules, and it creates the world.
Germany has reduced savagery to a science, and this great war for the victorious peace of justice must go on until the German cancer is cut clean out of the world body.
The constitution of the universe is total natural law. ‘Natural law,’ we say from the field of science. ‘Will of God,’ we say from the field of religion. It’s the same thing.
The equal right of all citizens to health, education, work, food, security, culture, science, and wellbeing – that is, the same rights we proclaimed when we began our struggle, in addition to those which emerge from our dreams of justice and equality for all inhabitants of our world – is what I wish for all.
If you are a natural scientist, a publication the journal Science carries enormous prestige.
I cannot live on myths; somehow, science convinces me more easily. I am prone to lean towards science, ethics, and philosophy rather than myth, religion, and rituals.
Chastity is the cement of civilization and progress. Without it there is no stability in society, and without it one cannot attain the Science of Life.
Politics I conceive to be nothing more than the science of the ordered progress of society along the lines of greatest usefulness and convenience to itself.
Space or science fiction has become a dialect for our time.
Wisdom alone is the science of other sciences.
There are in fact two things, science and opinion; the former begets knowledge, the latter ignorance.
Innovations in science and technology are the engines of the 21st-century economy; if you care about the wealth and health of your nation tomorrow, then you’d better rethink how you allocate taxes to fund science. The federal budget needs to recognize this.
Pursue science because it is knowledge, because it broadens our horizons. There is so much more to be discovered.
It is reasonable to expect the doctor to recognize that science may not have all the answers to problems of health and healing.
Science is the great antidote to the poison of enthusiasm and superstition.
Art is made to disturb, science reassures.
In political science, public support doesn’t have a reverse gear. It always goes forward.
The existence of life beyond Earth is an ancient human concern. Over the years, however, attempts to understand humanity’s place in the cosmos through science often got hijacked by wishful thinking or fabricated tales.
From now on we live in a world where man has walked on the Moon. It’s not a miracle; we just decided to go.
While that amendment failed, human cloning continues to advance and the breakthrough in this unethical and morally questionable science is around the corner.
I am not a scientist. I am, rather, an impresario of scientists.
Modern science says: ‘The sun is the past, the earth is the present, the moon is the future.’ From an incandescent mass we have originated, and into a frozen mass we shall turn. Merciless is the law of nature, and rapidly and irresistibly we are drawn to our doom.
I have done one thing that I think is a contribution: I helped Buddhist science and modern science combine. No other Buddhist has done that. Other lamas, I don’t think they ever pay attention to modern science. Since my childhood, I have a keen interest.
I actually consider myself as totally privileged to be able to serve science and medicine in a global fashion, because science and medicine know no boundaries.
Nobody climbs mountains for scientific reasons. Science is used to raise money for the expeditions, but you really climb for the hell of it.
I used to think information was destroyed in black hole. This was my biggest blunder, or at least my biggest blunder in science.
In all science, error precedes the truth, and it is better it should go first than last.
What has become clear from the science is that we cannot burn all of the fossil fuels without creating a very different planet.
Science has explained nothing; the more we know the more fantastic the world becomes and the profounder the surrounding darkness.
Science is knowledge arranged and classified according to truth, facts, and the general laws of nature.
Everything is fraught with danger. I love technology and I love science. It’s just always all in the way you use it. So there’s no – you can’t really blame anything on the technology. It’s just the way people use it, and it always has been.
However far modern science and techniques have fallen short of their inherent possibilities, they have taught mankind at least one lesson; nothing is impossible.
The major thing is to view biology as an information science.
Music is science more than art, and it is the main code of the universe.
In questions of science, the authority of a thousand is not worth the humble reasoning of a single individual.
I believe there are no questions that science can’t answer about a physical universe.
I believe that not everything we humans encounter in our lives can be neatly and convincingly tucked away inside the orderly cabinetry of science.
The media need superheroes in science just as in every sphere of life, but there is really a continuous range of abilities with no clear dividing line.
Science is simply common sense at its best, that is, rigidly accurate in observation, and merciless to fallacy in logic.
Art is science made clear.
The capacity of the female mind for studies of the highest order cannot be doubted, having been sufficiently illustrated by its works of genius, of erudition, and of science.
I have a Ph.D. in cell biology. And that’s really manual labor. I mean, experimental science, you do it with your hands. So it’s very different. You’re out there in a lab, cleaning test tubes, and it just wasn’t that fascinating.
Crucial to science education is hands-on involvement: showing, not just telling; real experiments and field trips and not just ‘virtual reality.’
A fact is a simple statement that everyone believes. It is innocent, unless found guilty. A hypothesis is a novel suggestion that no one wants to believe. It is guilty, until found effective.
I’m not a scientist. What I find interesting about my work is how, as a designer, I sit between science and the consumer and can see both a need and a solution.
Science of mind teaches you how to realize how much control you have over your own life. It teaches you that we have the ability to change our lives at any point we choose.
Women are both talented and innovative thinkers and tend to use computer science as a tool to solve larger problems.
In the spirit of science, there really is no such thing as a ‘failed experiment.’ Any test that yields valid data is a valid test.
The greatest advances of civilization, whether in architecture or painting, in science and literature, in industry or agriculture, have never come from centralized government.
To begin with, we put the proposition: pure phenomenology is the science of pure consciousness.
One of the great problems of the world today is undoubtedly this problem of not being able to talk to scientists, because we don’t understand science; they can’t talk to us because they don’t understand anything else, poor dears.
Further, the dignity of the science itself seems to require that every possible means be explored for the solution of a problem so elegant and so celebrated.
The most exciting phrase to hear in science, the one that heralds new discoveries, is not ‘Eureka!’ but ‘That’s funny…’
We don’t regard any scientific theory as the absolute truth.
Some day science may have the existence of mankind in power, and the human race can commit suicide by blowing up the world.
You cannot feed the hungry on statistics.
We must revisit the idea that science is a methodology and not an ontology.
It takes a certain amount of courage to tackle very hard problems in science, I now realise. You don’t know what the timescale of your work will be: decades or only a few years.
The march of science and technology does not imply growing intellectual complexity in the lives of most people. It often means the opposite.
For years I’ve wanted to write a book about mummies, and had been following the science of mummy CT scans when the premise for ‘The Keepsake’ occurred to me: what if an ‘ancient’ mummy turns out to have a bullet in its leg? How does a modern murder victim get turned into a mummy?
I follow science and common sense. Science says you should eat a variety of foods and eat more fruits and vegetables – I do that.
Cosmologists have attempted to account for the day-to-day laws you find in textbooks in terms of fundamental ‘superlaws,’ but the superlaws themselves must still be accepted as brute facts. So maybe the ultimate laws of nature will always be off-limits to science.
Scientific advancement should aim to affirm and to improve human life.
Science can lift people out of poverty and cure disease. That, in turn, will reduce civil unrest.
I also think we need to maintain distinctions – the doctrine of creation is different from a scientific cosmology, and we should resist the temptation, which sometimes scientists give in to, to try to assimilate the concepts of theology to the concepts of science.
Psychology is the science of the intellects, characters and behavior of animals including man.
When I die, I’m leaving my body to science fiction.
Science cannot solve the ultimate mystery of nature. And that is because, in the last analysis, we ourselves are a part of the mystery that we are trying to solve.
Science is the knowledge of consequences, and dependence of one fact upon another.
When I was young, I did varied after-school activities – I did art, drama, science, math. I’m not the sporty kind of person, but I did get a certificate on outdoor recreation.
It was hard for me to believe. I would look down and say, ‘This is the moon, this is the moon,’ and I would look up and say, ‘That’s the Earth, that’s the Earth,’ in my head. So, it was science fiction to us even as we were doing it.
If you go into science, I think you better go in with a dream that maybe you, too, will get a Nobel Prize. It’s not that I went in and I thought I was very bright and I was going to get one, but I’ll confess, you know, I knew what it was.
To my mind, the most important aspect of the Nobel Awards is that they bring home to the masses of the peoples of all nations, a realization of their common interests. They carry to those who have no direct contact with science the international spirit.
God may exist, but science can explain the universe without the need for a creator.
I learned about serif and san serif typefaces, about varying the amount of space between different letter combinations, about what makes great typography great. It was beautiful, historical, artistically subtle in a way that science can’t capture, and I found it fascinating.
My background was computer science and business school, so eventually I worked my way up where I was running product groups – development, testing, marketing, user education.
As a science fiction and fantasy writer, I used to love writing bleak, grimdark futures full of bleak, grimdark people. But I’ve found that as the world around me darkens, all I really want to do is grasp for more light.
What are we promoting in society? Well-behaved automatons that spew back what they learned in a book. That’s not science. You can get a parrot to do that.
The science tells us that if we fail to reduce global warming pollution, global temperatures will rise to dangerous levels and unleash devastating extreme weather events and accelerate destructive sea level rise.
Follow your curiosity, and have the courage to meet the challenge. That’s where science starts, in my opinion.
Science moves with the spirit of an adventure characterized both by youthful arrogance and by the belief that the truth, once found, would be simple as well as pretty.
We live in a society exquisitely dependent on science and technology, in which hardly anyone knows anything about science and technology.
Science and mindfulness complement each other in helping people to eat well and maintain their health and well-being.
Some people would claim that things like love, joy and beauty belong to a different category from science and can’t be described in scientific terms, but I think they can now be explained by the theory of evolution.
Science is a way of life. Science is a perspective. Science is the process that takes us from confusion to understanding in a manner that’s precise, predictive and reliable – a transformation, for those lucky enough to experience it, that is empowering and emotional.
The Russian Federation and the United States of America, the two biggest nuclear powers in the world, but apart from nuclear-wise, we have a lot in common. We have huge territories, natural resources, technologies, science, education, and of course human capital.
I hope to continue to inspire our nation’s youth to pursue careers in science, technology, engineering, and math so they, too, may reach for the stars.
We must accept what science tells us, that man was born from the earth. But, more logical than the scientists who lecture us, we must carry this lesson to its conclusion: that is to say, accept that man was born entirely from the world – not only his flesh and bones but his incredible power of thought.
Economists should be modest and be aware that they are part of the broader social science community. We need to be pragmatic about the methods we use. When we need to do history, we should do history. When we need to study political science, we should study political science.
You don’t need a science degree to understand about science. You just need to think about it.
When science, art, literature, and philosophy are simply the manifestation of personality they are on a level where glorious and dazzling achievements are possible, which can make a man’s name live for thousands of years.
I went to Antarctica on a science research boat just to sort of clear my head.
Science may have found a cure for most evils; but it has found no remedy for the worst of them all – the apathy of human beings.
Science is like a love affair with nature; an elusive, tantalising mistress. It has all the turbulence, twists and turns of romantic love, but that’s part of the game.
The saddest aspect of life right now is that science gathers knowledge faster than society gathers wisdom.
To me, mathematics, computer science, and the arts are insanely related. They’re all creative expressions.
I make no apologies in admitting that I take very seriously the dehumanizing dangers in our tendency in modern science to make man over into the image of the machine, into the image of the techniques by which we study him.
We are born at a given moment, in a given place and, like vintage years of wine, we have the qualities of the year and of the season of which we are born. Astrology does not lay claim to anything more.
The soft power of science has the potential to reshape global diplomacy.
I am humbled and excited by new opportunities for me to support and share the amazing work NASA is doing to help us travel farther into the solar system and work with the next generation of science and technology leaders.
A good writer should be able to write comedic work that made you laugh, and scary stuff that made you scared, and fantasy or science fiction that imbued you with a sense of wonder, and mainstream journalism that gave you clear and concise information in a way that you wanted it.
It stands to the everlasting credit of science that by acting on the human mind it has overcome man’s insecurity before himself and before nature.
We should remember that there was once a discipline called natural philosophy. Unfortunately, this discipline seems not to exist today. It has been renamed science, but science of today is in danger of losing much of the natural philosophy aspect.
It seems to me that socialists today can preserve their position in academic economics merely by the pretense that the differences are entirely moral questions about which science cannot decide.
Let us advance science to create a better world for all.
When people think about computer science, they imagine people with pocket protectors and thick glasses who code all night.
We especially need imagination in science. It is not all mathematics, nor all logic, but it is somewhat beauty and poetry.
To be creative means to connect. It’s to abolish the gap between the body, the mind and the soul, between science and art, between fiction and nonfiction.
It will free man from the remaining chains, the chains of gravity which still tie him to this planet.
The thing that interests me least about the radio business is the radio business. But I’ve had to learn a little bit about it. It’s not rocket science: You get ratings, that’s good.
There is no science in creativity. If you don’t give yourself room to fail, you won’t innovate.
Neuroscience is by far the most exciting branch of science because the brain is the most fascinating object in the universe. Every human brain is different – the brain makes each human unique and defines who he or she is.
No amount of experimentation can ever prove me right; a single experiment can prove me wrong.
The work of science is to substitute facts for appearances, and demonstrations for impressions.
‘Who are we?’ And to me that’s the essential question that’s always been in science fiction. A lot of science fiction stories are – at their very best – evocations of that question. When we look up at the night sky and wonder, ‘Is there anyone else out there?’ we’re also asking who we are we in relation to them.
Science fiction encourages us to explore… all the futures, good and bad, that the human mind can envision.
Therefore, the good of man must be the end of the science of politics.
For me, science is already fantastical enough. Unlocking the secrets of nature with fundamental physics or cosmology or astrobiology leads you into a wonderland compared with which beliefs in things like alien abductions pale into insignificance.
Science arose from poetry… when times change the two can meet again on a higher level as friends.
After all, science is essentially international, and it is only through lack of the historical sense that national qualities have been attributed to it.
Before I became a film major, I was very heavily into social science, I had done a lot of sociology, anthropology, and I was playing in what I call social psychology, which is sort of an offshoot of anthropology/sociology – looking at a culture as a living organism, why it does what it does.
Science is a perception of the world around us. Science is a place where what you find in nature pleases you.
From a purely positivist point of view, man is the most mysterious and disconcerting of all the objects met with by science.
There has no doubt to be fundamental research in science, but applied research is equally important for new improvements and changes in our techniques.
As a Humanist, I love science. I hate superstition, which could never have given us A-bombs.
Science is organized common sense where many a beautiful theory was killed by an ugly fact.
Forensic science offers great potential, as it draws on almost every discipline and, in doing so, creates widespread opportunity for innovation.
We live in an age of technology and science that demands proof, and yet we desire mystery. But when God gives us mystery, we seek to destroy it by gross indifference or childish reasoning.
I remember in 1967, when there was that terrible fire on NASA’s Apollo 1 rocket that killed three astronauts, my father made pure oxygen and we lit this tiny cup and burned it. Suddenly, we had an unbelievable jet and a fire. You just could see exactly what had happened.
We’re not all equal, it’s simply not true. That isn’t science.
