Science Is A Boon Quotes

Science has brought us power and ideas but not the wisdom or responsibility to handle them.

Peter J. Carroll

As our own species is in the process of proving, one cannot have superior science and inferior morals. The combination is unstable and self-destroying.

When one longs for a drink, it seems as though one could drink a whole oceanthat is faith; but when one begins to drink, one can only drink altogether two glassesthat is science.

The fact that in Germany the politics were of the Right and in the United States of the Left should not mislead us. In both places the universities gave way under the pressure of mass movements, and did so in large measure because they thought those movements possessed a moral truth superior to any the university could provide. Commitment was understood to be profounder than science, passion than reason, history than nature, the young than the old.

Allan David Bloom

Clever men will recognize and tolerate nothing but cleverness; every authority rouses their ridicule, every superstition amuses them, every convention moves them to contradiction. Only force finds favor in their eyes, and they have no toleration for anything that is not purely natural and spontaneous. And yet ten clever men are not worth one man of talent, nor ten men of talent worth one man of genius. And in the individual, feeling is more than cleverness, reason is worth as much as feeling, and conscience has it over reason. If, then, the clever man is not mockable, he may at least be neither loved, nor considered, nor esteemed. He may make himself feared, it is true, and force others to respect his independence; but this negative advantage, which is the result of a negative superiority, brings no happiness with it. Cleverness is serviceable for everything, sufficient for nothing.

Henri-Frdric Amiel

In science, read, by preference the newest works; in literature, the oldest. The classics are always modern.

Edward George Earl Bulwer Lytton

Science, like art, is not a copy of nature but a re-creation of her.

Design is in everything we make, but its also between those things. It's a mix of craft, science, storytelling, propaganda, and philosophy.

Erik Adigard

The benefits of science are not only material ones. The truths that science teaches are of common interest the world over. The language of science is universal, and is a powerful force in bringing the peoples of the world closer together.

Arthur Holly Compton

Science is the future of mankind.

Claude Cohen Tannoudji

Science demands patience.

William Clark

Art is science made clear.

Jean Maurice Eugne Clment Cocteau

Economics has been called the dismal science. Once you get to understand it, you may not find it so dismal, but you don't find it much of a science either.

Joseph Jacques Jean Chrtien

Give me the liberty to know, to utter, and to argue freely according to conscience, above all liberties.

Milton, John

Despite your best efforts, you could not invent a better police force for literature than criticism and the authors own conscience.
