Science

Science has explained nothing; the more we know the more fantastic the world becomes and the profounder the surrounding darkness.
- Huxley, Aldous
Science Motivational Quotes



Best Quotes about Science

1.
Thus will the fondest dream of Phallic science be realized: a pristine new planet populated entirely by little boy clones of great scientific entrepreneurs free to smash atoms, accelerate particles, or, if they are so moved, build pyramids -- without any social relevance or human responsibility at all.
Ehrenreich, Barbara

2.
No ear can hear nor tongue can tell the tortures of the inward hell!
Byron, Lord

3.
Conscience is the dog that can't bite, but never stops barking.
Proverb

4.
The voice of conscience is so delicate that it is easy to stifle it; but it is also so clear that it is impossible to mistake it.
Stael, Germaine De

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

6.
Can a society in which thought and technique are scientific persist for a long period, as, for example, ancient Egypt persisted, or does it necessarily contain within itself forces which must bring either decay or explosion?
Russell, Bertrand

7.
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.

8.
The chief prerequisite for a escort is to have a flexible conscience and an inflexible politeness.
Blessington, Marguerite Gardiner, Countess of

9.
Conscience is thoroughly well-bred and soon leaves off talking to those who do not wish to hear it.
Butler, Samuel

10.
Science is but an image of the truth.
Bacon, Francis

11.
In science, all facts no matter how trivial, enjoy democratic equality.
Mccarthy, Mary

12.
Nevertheless, in order to imbue civilization with sound principles and enliven it with the spirit of the gospel, it is not enough to be illumined with the gift of faith and enkindled with the desire of forwarding a good cause. For this end it is necessary to take an active part in the various organizations and influence them from within. And since our present age is one of outstanding scientific and technical progress and excellence, one will not be able to enter these organizations and work effectively from within unless he is scientifically competent, technically capable and skilled in the practice of his own profession.
Pope John XXIII

13.
What we call conscience in many instances, is only a wholesome fear of the law.
Bovee, Christian Nevell

14.
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

15.
Conscience -- the only incorruptible thing about us.
Fielding, Henry

16.
Science is feasible when the variables are few and can be enumerated; when their combinations are distinct and clear. We are tending toward the condition of science and aspiring to do it. The artist works out his own formulas; the interest of science lies in the art of making science.
Valery, Paul

17.
Science has always been too dignified to invent a good backscratcher.
Marquis, Don

18.
Conscience is the internal perception of the rejection of a particular wish operating within us.
Freud, Sigmund

19.
Nothing leads the scientist so astray as a premature truth.
Rostand, Jean

20.
Science has proof without any certainty. Creationists have certainty without any proof.
Ashley Montague

21.
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

22.
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.
Marx, Karl

23.
When a distinguished but elderly scientist states that something is possible, he is almost certainly right. When he states that something is impossible, he is very probably wrong.
Arthur C. Clarke

24.
If politicians and scientist were lazier, how much happier we should all be.
Waugh, Evelyn

25.
The fancy that extraterrestrial life is by definition of a higher order than our own is one that soothes all children, and many writers.
Didion, Joan

26.
The science of today is the technology of tomorrow.
Teller, Edward

27.
It is a good morning exercise for a research scientist to discard a pet hypothesis every day before breakfast. It keeps him young.
Konrad Lorenz

28.
Science is spectral analysis. Art is light synthesis.
Kraus, Karl

29.
Science can only ascertain what is, but not what should be, and outside of its domain value judgments of all kinds remain necessary.
Einstein, Albert

30.
To overturn orthodoxy is no easier in science than in philosophy, religion, economics, or any of the other disciplines through which we try to comprehend the world and the society in which we live.
Hubbard, Ruth

31.
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

32.
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.
Asimov, Isaac

33.
If you look into your own heart, you find nothing wrong there, what is there to fear?
Confucius

34.
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

35.
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.
Pasteur, Louis

36.
When we say science we can either mean any manipulation of the inventive and organizing power of the human intellect: or we can mean such an extremely different thing as the religion of science, the vulgarized derivative from this pure activity manipulated by a sort of priestcraft into a great religious and political weapon.
Lewis, Wyndham

37.
Conscience is the sentinel of virtue.
Lavater, Johann Kaspar

38.
I maintain there is much more wonder in science than in pseudoscience. And in addition, to whatever measure this term has any meaning, science has the additional virtue, and it is not an inconsiderable one, of being true.
Carl Sagan

39.
Science may be described as the art of systematic over-simplification.
Popper, Karl

40.
Science fiction films are not about science. They are about disaster, which is one of the oldest subjects of art.
Sontag, Susan

41.
Reason often makes mistakes, but conscience never does.
Billings, Josh

42.
Formal symbolic representation of qualitative entities is doomed to its rightful place of minor significance in a world where flowers and beautiful women abound.
Einstein, Albert

43.
That is the essence of science: ask an impertinent question, and you are on the way to a pertinent answer.
Bronowski, Jacob

44.
Well: what we gain by science is, after all, sadness, as the Preacher saith. The more we know of the laws and nature of the Universe the more ghastly a business we perceive it all to be -- and the non-necessity of it.
Hardy, Thomas

45.
The more we learn of science, the more we see that its wonderful mysteries are all explained by a few simple laws so connected together and so dependent upon each other, that we see the same mind animating them all.
Brown, Olympia

46.
Aristotle could have avoided the mistake of thinking that women have fewer teeth than men, by the simple device of asking Mrs. Aristotle to keep her mouth open while he counted.
Russell, Bertrand

47.
Today the function of the artist is to bring imagination to science and science to imagination, where they meet, in the myth.
Connolly, Cyril

48.
Freedom of conscience entails more dangers than authority and despotism.
Foucault, Michel

49.
The future of humanity is uncertain, even in the most prosperous countries, and the quality of life deteriorates; and yet I believe that what is being discovered about the infinitely large and infinitely small is sufficient to absolve this end of the century and millennium. What a very few are acquiring in knowledge of the physical world will perhaps cause this period not to be judged as a pure return of barbarism.
Levi, Primo

50.
There is one thing alone that stands the brunt of life throughout its length: a quiet conscience.
Euripides
