Science

It is not easy to imagine how little interested a scientist usually is in the work of any other, with the possible exception of the teacher who backs him or the student who honors him.
- Rostand, Jean
Science Motivational Quotes



Best Quotes about Science

1.
If a superior give any order to one who is under him which is against that man's conscience, although he do not obey it yet he shall not be dismissed.
Francis of Assisi, St.

2.
What a man calls his conscience is merely the mental action that follows a sentimental reaction after too much wine or love.
Rowland, Helen

3.
Science rests on reason and experiment, and can meet an opponent with calmness; but a belief is always sensitive.
Froude, James A.

4.
Conscience is thoroughly well-bred and soon leaves off talking to those who do not wish to hear it.
Butler, Samuel

5.
The worst state of affairs is when science begins to concern itself with art.
Klee, Paul

6.
Science is simply common sense at its best--that is, rigidly accurate in observation, and merciless to fallacy in logic.
Huxley, Thomas H.

7.
When I contemplate the accumulation of guilt and remorse which, like a garbage-can, I carry through life, and which is fed not only by the lightest action but by the most harmless pleasure, I feel Man to be of all living things the most biologically incompetent and ill-organized. Why has he acquired a seventy years life-span only to poison it incurably by the mere being of himself? Why has he thrown Conscience, like a dead rat, to putrefy in the well?
Connolly, Cyril

8.
Conscience has no more to do with gallantry than it has with politics.
Sheridan, Richard Brinsley

9.
For undemocratic reasons and for motives not of State, they arrive at their conclusions -- largely inarticulate. Being void of self-expression they confide their views to none; but sometimes in a smoking room, one learns why things were done.
Kipling, Rudyard

10.
The one thing that doesn't abide by majority rule is a person's conscience.
Lee, Harper

11.
Interestingly, according to modern astronomers, space is finite. This is a very comforting thought - particularly for people who can never remember where they left things.
Allen, Woody

12.
Conscience is the voice of the soul; the passions of the body.
Rousseau, Jean Jacques

13.
Science is nothing but developed perception, interpreted intent, common sense rounded out and minutely articulated.
George Santayana

14.
Science is the attempt to make the chaotic diversity of our sense experience correspond to a logically uniform system of thought.
Einstein, Albert

15.
What the hell is nostalgia doing in a science-fiction film? With the whole universe and all the future to play in, Lucas took his marvelous toys and crawled under the fringed cloth on the parlor table, back into a nice safe hide hole, along with Flash Gordon and the Cowardly Lion and Luke Skywalker and the Flying Aces and the Hitler Jugend. If there's a message there, I don't think I want to hear it.
Guin, Ursula K. Le

16.
I know of no department of natural science more likely to reward a man who goes into it thoroughly than anthropology. There is an immense deal to be done in the science pure and simple, and it is one of those branches of inquiry which brings one into contact with the great problems of humanity in every direction.
Huxley, Thomas H.

17.
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

18.
Science is one thing, wisdom is another. Science is an edged tool, with which men play like children, and cut their own fingers.
Sir Arthur Eddington

19.
Honor is the moral conscience of the great.
D'Avenant

20.
There is not much that even the most socially responsible scientists can do as individuals, or even as a group, about the social consequences of their activities.
Hobsbawm, E. J.

21.
That is the essence of science: ask an impertinent question, and you are on the way to a pertinent answer.
Bronowski, Jacob

22.
Everybody's a mad scientist, and life is their lab. We're all trying to experiment to find a way to live, to solve problems, to fend off madness and chaos.
Cronenberg, David

23.
The person that loses their conscience has nothing left worth keeping.
Walton, Izaak

24.
Science is not about control. It is about cultivating a perpetual sense of wonder in the face of something that forever grows one step richer and subtle than our latest theory about it. It is about reverence, not mastery.
Powers, Richard

25.
It is sometimes important for science to know how to forget the things she is surest of.
Rostand, Jean

26.
There comes a time when every scientist, even God, has to write off an experiment.
James, P. D.

27.
O conscience, upright and stainless, how bitter a sting to thee is a little fault!
Dante Alighieri

28.
Science is all metaphor.
Leary, Timothy

29.
When I am in the company of scientists, I feel like a shabby curate who has strayed by mistake into a drawing room full of dukes.
Auden, W. H.

30.
Science is a game we play with God, to find out what his rules are.
Krasel, Cornelius

31.
The man of science is a poor philosopher.
Einstein, Albert

32.
The great tragedy of science is the slaying of a beautiful hypothesis by an ugly fact.
Huxley, Thomas H.

33.
There are no better terms available to describe [The] difference between the approach of the natural and the social sciences than to call the former objective and the latter subjective. ... While for the natural scientist the contrast between objective facts and subjective opinions is a simple one, the distinction cannot as readily be applied to the object of the social sciences. The reason for this is that the object, the facts of the social sciences are also opinions -- not opinions of the student of the social phenomena, of course, but opinions of those whose actions produce the object of the social scientist.
Hayek, Friedrich August Von

34.
Everything is becoming science fiction. From the margins of an almost invisible literature has sprung the intact reality of the 20th century.
Ballard, J. G.

35.
Religions are the great fairy tales of conscience.
Santayana, George

36.
The mythology of science asserts that with many different scientists all asking their own questions and evaluating the answers independently, whatever personal bias creeps into their individual answers is cancelled out when the large picture is put together. This might conceivably be so if scientists were women and men from all sorts of different cultural and social backgrounds who came to science with very different ideologies and interests. But since, in fact, they have been predominantly university-trained white males from privileged social backgrounds, the bias has been narrow and the product often reveals more about the investigator than about the subject being researched.
Hubbard, Ruth

37.
Where the world ceases to be the scene of our personal hopes and wishes, where we face it as free beings admiring, asking and observing, there we enter the realm of Art and Science
Einstein, Albert

38.
Freedom of conscience entails more dangers than authority and despotism.
Foucault, Michel

39.
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

40.
Again and again I am brought up against it, and again and again I resist it: I don't want to believe it, even though it is almost palpable: the vast majority lack an intellectual conscience; indeed, it often seems to me that to demand such a thing is to be in the most populous cities as solitary as in the desert.
Nietzsche, Friedrich

41.
Conscience does make cowards of us all.
Shakespeare, William

42.
There is no witness so terrible and no accuser so powerful as conscience which dwells within us.
Sophocles

43.
Science has a simple faith, which transcends utility. Nearly all men of science, all men of learning for that matter, and men of simple ways too, have it in some form and in some degree. It is the faith that it is the privilege of man to learn to understand, and that this is his mission. If we abandon that mission under stress we shall abandon it forever, for stress will not cease. Knowledge for the sake of understanding, not merely to prevail, that is the essence of our being. None can define its limits, or set its ultimate boundaries.
Bush, Vannevar

44.
If science fiction is the mythology of modern technology, then its myth is tragic.
Guin, Ursula K. Le

45.
Conscience: self-esteem with a halo.
Layton, Irving

46.
Science must have originated in the feeling that something was wrong.
Carlyle, Thomas

47.
A man's moral conscience is the curse he had to accept from the gods in order to gain from them the right to dream.
Faulkner, William

48.
Where everything is possible miracles become commonplaces, but the familiar ceases to be self-evident.
Hoffer, Eric

49.
Science means simply the aggregate of all the recipes that are always successful. All the rest is literature.
Valery, Paul

50.
Science is spectral analysis. Art is light synthesis.
Kraus, Karl
