Science has not yet taught us if madness is or is not the sublimity of the intelligence.
The real origin of science fiction lay in the seventeenth-century novels of exploration in fabulous lands. Therefore Jules Verne's story of travel to the moon is not science fiction because they go by rocket but because of where they go. It would be as much science fiction if they went by rubber band.
A religion old or new, that stressed the magnificence of the universe as revealed by modern science, might be able to draw forth reserves of reverence and awe hardly tapped by the conventional faiths. Sooner or later, such a religion will emerge.
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.
Art is not a pleasure, a solace, or an amusement; art is great matter. Art is an organ of human life, transmitting man's reasonable perception into feeling. In our age the common religious perception of men is the consciousness of the brotherhood of man-we know that the well-being of man lies in the union with his fellow men. True science should indicate the various methods of applying this consciousness to life. Art should transform this perception into feeling. The task of art is enormous. Through the influence of real art, aided by science, guided by religion, that peaceful co-operation of man is now obtained by external means-by law courts, police, charitable institutions, factory inspection, etc.-should be obtained by man's free and joyous activity. Art should cause violence to be set aside. And it is only art that can accomplish this.
History is, in its essentials, the science of change. It knows and it teaches that it is impossible to find two events that are ever exactly alike, because the conditions from which they spring are never identical.
Jesus of Nazareth, without money and arms, conquered more millions than Alexander the Great, Caesar, Mohammed, and Napoleon; without science and learning, he shed more light on things human and divine than all philosophers and scholars combined; without the eloquence of school, he spoke such words of life as were never spoken before or since, and produced effects which lie beyond the reach of orator or poet; without writing a single line, he set more pens in motion, and furnished themes for more sermons, orations, discussions, learned volumes, works of art, and songs of praise than the whole army of great men of ancient and modern times.
I warn you against believing that advertising is a science.
Poetry is as exact a science as geometry
Poetry is not the proper antithesis to prose, but to science. Poetry is opposed to science, and prose to metre
Science has proof without any certainty. Creationists have certainty without any proof.
Reason, Observation, and Experience -- the Holy Trinity of Science.
Science is not a sacred cow. Science is a horse. Don't worship it. Feed it.
Modern science is still trying to produce a tranquilizer more effective than a few kind words
"Healing," Papa would tell me, "is not a science, but the intuitive art of wooing nature."
Science commits suicide when it adopts a creed.
But in science the credit goes to the man who convinces the world, not to the man to whom the idea first occurs.
Innocence about Science is the worst crime today.
Science is not about control. It is about cultivating a perpetual condition of wonder in the face of something that forever grows one step richer and subtler than our latest theory about it. It is about reverence, not mastery
When science and the Bible differ, science has obviously misinterpreted its data
The progress of science is the discovery at each step of a new order which gives unity to what had seemed unlike
Science by itself has no moral dimension. But it does seek to establish truth. And upon this truth morality can be built
Science is the belief in the ignorance of the experts
Science is all metaphor
Science is but the exchange of ignorance for that which is another kind of ignorance
