Science Quotes

Geology holds the keys of one of the kingdoms of nature; and it cannot be said that a science which extends our Knowledge, and by consequence our Power, over a third part of nature, holds a low place among intellectual employments.

William Buckland

We've arranged a civilization in which most crucial elements profoundly depend on science and technology.

Dr. Carl Sagan

The science of today is the technology of tomorrow.

Edward Teller

I hate the whole ubermensch, superman temptation that pervades science fiction. I believe no protagonist should be so competent, so awe-inspiring, that a committee of 20 really hard-working, intelligent people couldn't do the same thing.

William M. Kucmierowski

Change is the principal feature of our age and literature should explore how people deal with it. The best science fiction does that, head-on.

William M. Kucmierowski

I grew up to be indifferent to the distinction between literature and science, which in my teens were simply two languages for experience that I learned together.

Jacob Bronowski

The discoveries of science, the works of art are explorations more, are explosions, of a hidden likeness. The discoverer or the artist presents in them two aspects of nature and fuses them into one. This is the act of creation, in which an original thought is born, and it is the same act in original science and original art.

Jacob Bronowski

The symbol and the metaphor are as necessary to science as to poetry.

Jacob Bronowski

Books are the carriers of civilization. Without books, history is silent, literature dumb, science crippled, thought and speculation at a standstill.

Barbara W. Tuchman

Science-fiction balances you on the cliff. Fantasy shoves you off.

Ray Douglas Bradbury

Since fresh examples and proofs could always be found of the alleged relation between guilt and punishment: if you behave in such and such a way, it will go badly with you.

Georg Morris Cohen Brandes

People who love science fiction really do love sex.

Susannah

Both the uncertainty principle and the negentropy principle of information make Laplace's scheme [of exact determinism] completely unrealistic. The problem is an artificial one; it belongs to imaginative poetry, not to experimental science.

Lon Nicolas Brillouin

I believe there is no philosophical high-road in science, with epistemological signposts. No, we are in a jungle and find our way by trial and error, building our road behind us as we proceed. We do not find signposts at crossroads, but our own scouts erect them, to help the rest.

Max Born

The man of science is a poor philosopher
