Science Quotes

The religion that is afraid of science dishonors God and commits suicide.

Ralph Waldo Emerson

Every great advance in science has issued from a new audacity of the imagination.

John Dewey

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

Science cannot resolve moral conflicts, but it can help to more accurately frame the debates about those conflicts.

Heinz Pagels

Our defense is not in our armaments, nor in science, nor in going underground. Our defense is in law and order.

Albert Einstein

Scholarship has yielded to the irresistible pull that science exerts on our minds by its self-confidence and the promise of certified knowledge. But, to repeat, the objects of culture are not analyzable, not graspable by the geometric mind. Great works of art are great by virtue of being syntheses of the world; they qualify as art by fusing form and contents into an indivisible whole; what they offer is not "discourse about," nor a cipher to be decoded, but a prolonged incitement to finesse. So it is paradoxical that our way of introducing young minds to such works should be the way of scholarship.

Jacques Barzun

Disease is an experience of mortal mind. It is fear made manifest on the body. Divine Science takes away this physical sense of discord, just as it removes a sense of moral or mental in-harmony.

Mary Baker Eddy

In art, and in the higher ranges of science, there is a feeling of harmony which underlies all endeavor. There is no true greatness in art or science without that sense of harmony.

Albert Einstein

It is certain that during the sixteenth century, and the years that preceded and followed it, poisoning was brought to a perfection unknown to modern chemistry, as history itself will prove. Italy, the cradle of modern science, was, at this period, the inventor and mistress of these secrets, many of which are now lost.

Honor de Balzac

Modern science is still trying to produce a tranquilizer more effective than a few kind words

Douglas Meador

A dream is a massive magic trick of the mind. No amount of science could explain away the mysterious wonder.

Dave Matthews

The main purpose of science is simplicity and as we understand more things, everything is becoming simpler.

Edward Teller

We can no longer allow America’s dependence on foreign oil to compromise our energy security. Instead, we must invest in inventing new ways to power our cars and our economy. I’ll put my faith in American science and ingenuity any day before I depend on Saudi Arabia.

Senator John Kerry

Before a war military science seems a real science, like astronomy; but after a war it seems more like astrology

Rebecca West

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

George Bernard Shaw

... experience; such are the recurrences of reference to the Cinderella story. Sometimes it is an allusion which has its strength in long association of certain qualities with certain characters in fairydom--like the slyness of Brother Fox, and the cruelty of Brother Wolf. Sometimes the association of ideas lies below the surface, drawing from the hidden wells of poetic illusion which are sunk in childhood. The man or woman whose infancy was nourished exclusively on tales adapted from science-made-easy, or from biographies ...

Sara Cone Bryant

Evolution seems to close the heart to some of the plainest spiritual truths while it opens the mind to the wildest guesses advanced in the name of science.

William Jennings Bryan

Management is, above all, a practice where art, science, and craft meet.

Henry Mintzberg

We simply must do everything we can in our power to slow down global warming before it is too late. The science is clear.The global warming debate is over.

Arnold Schwarzenegger

With all of the hysteria, all of the fear, all of the phony science, could it be that man-made global warming is the greatest hoax ever perpetrated on the American people? It sure sounds like it.

James M. Inhofe

We live in a society exquisitely dependent on science and technology, in which hardly anyone knows anything about science and technology.

Carl Sagan

We live in a world ruled by fictions of every kind -- mass merchandising, advertising, politics conducted as a branch of advertising, the instant translation of science and technology into popular imagery, the increasing blurring and intermingling of identities within the realm of consumer goods, the preempting of any free or original imaginative response to experience by the television screen. We live inside an enormous novel. For the writer in particular it is less and less necessary for him to invent the fictional content of his novel. The fiction is already there. The writer's task is to invent the reality.

J. G. Ballard

In science it often happens that scientists say, "You know that's a really good argument; my position is mistaken," and then they would actually change their minds and you never hear that old view from them again. They really do it. It doesn't happen as often as it should, because scientists are human and change is sometimes painful. But it happens every day. I cannot recall the last time something like that happened in politics or religion.

Carl Sagan
