Science quotes
Science
A fool's brain digests philosophy into folly, science into superstition, and art into pedantry. Hence University education.

- George Bernard Shaw
In science,'fact'can only mean'confirmed to such a degree that it would be perverse to withhold provisional assent.'I suppose that apples might start to rise tomorrow, but the possibility does not merit equal time in physics classrooms.

- Stephen Jay Gould
The sciences do not try to explain, they hardly even try to interpret, they mainly make models. By a model is meant a mathematical construct which, with the addition of certain verbal interpretations describes observed phenomena. The justification of such a mathematical construct is solely and precisely that it is expected to work.

- Neumann, John Von
As an adolescent I aspired to lasting fame, I craved factual certainty, and I thirsted for a meaningful vision of human life - so I became a scientist. This is like becoming an archbishop so you can meet girls.

- M. Cartmill
Lord, with what care hast Thou begirt us round! Parents first season us; then schoolmasters deliver us to laws; they send us bound to rules of reason, holy messengers, pulpits and Sundays, sorrow dogging sin, afflictions sorted, anguish of all sizes, fine nets and stratagems to catch us in, bibles laid open, millions of surprises, blessings beforehand, ties of gratefulness, the sound of glory ringing in our ears: without, our shame; within, our consciences; angels and grace, eternal hopes and fears. Yet all these fences and their whole array one cunning bosom-sin blows quite away.

- Herbert, George
At the rate science proceeds, rockets and missiles will one day seem like buffalo -- slow, endangered grazers in the black pasture of outer space.

- Cooper, Bernard
Man has to awaken to wonder -- and so perhaps do peoples. Science is a way of sending him to sleep again.

- Wittgenstein, Ludwig
Science must have originated in the feeling that something was wrong.

- Carlyle, Thomas
A bad conscience has a very good memory

No great advance has ever been made in science, politics, or religion, without controversy.

- Beecher, Lyman
If anybody says he can think about quantum physics without getting giddy, that only shows he has not understood the first thing about them.

- Bohr, Niels
While conscience is our friend, all is at peace; however once it is offended, farewell to a tranquil mind.

- Montagu, Lady Mary Wortley
ZOOLOGY, n. The science and history of the animal kingdom, including its king, the House Fly (_Musca maledicta_). The father of Zoology was Aristotle, as is universally conceded, but the name of its mother has not come down to us. Two of the science's most illustrious expounders were Buffon and Oliver Goldsmith, from both of whom we learn (_L'Histoire generale des animaux_ and _A History of Animated Nature_) that the domestic cow sheds its horn every two years.

- Ambrose Bierce
Science is the century-old endeavor to bring together by means of systematic thought the perceptible phenomena of this world into as thorough-going an association as possible.

- Einstein, Albert
Isn't it marvelous how those scientists know the names of all those stars?

All exact science is dominated by the idea of approximation.

- Bertrand Russell
A just war is hospitable to every self-deception on the part of those waging it, none more than the certainty of virtue, under whose shelter every abomination can be committed with a clear conscience.

- Cockburn, Alexander
If the study of all these sciences which we have enumerated, should ever bring us to their mutual association and relationship, and teach us the nature of the ties which bind them together, I believe that the diligent treatment of them will forward the objects which we have in view, and that the labor, which otherwise would be fruitless, will be well bestowed.

- Plato
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.

- Helen Keller
Conscience is the perfect interpreter of life.

- Karl Barth
