Science Quotes

Science is a wonderful thing if one does not have to earn one's living at it.

Albert Einstein

Science without religion is lame, religion without science is blind.

Albert Einstein

Science is organized knowledge. Wisdom is organized life.

Immanuel Kant

No science is immune to the infection of politics and the corruption of power.

Jacob Bronowski

Science is a cemetery of dead ideas.

Miguel de Unamuno

A science is any discipline in which the fool of this generation can go beyond the point reached by the genius of the last generation.

Max Gluckman

Science is simply common sense at its best.

Thomas Huxley

There is no national science just as there is no national multiplication table; what is national is no longer science.

Anton Chekhov

It requires a very unusual mind to undertake the analysis of the obvious.

Alfred North Whitehead

Science... never solves a problem without creating ten more

George Bernard Shaw

Science is the father of knowledge, but opinion breeds ignorance

Hippocrates

In questions of science, the authority of a thousand is not worth the humble reasoning of a single individual

Galileo Galilei

Mathematics is the queen of sciences and arithmetic is the queen of mathematics

Carl Friedrich Gauss

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

Edward Teller

Our scientific power has outrun our spiritual power. We have guided missiles and misguided men.

Martin Luther King Jr

Global warming science is uneven and evolving.

Joseph Linus

Science that abdicates its cultural values risks being perceived as an extension of technology, an instrument in the hands of political or economic power. Humanity that disavows science risks falling into the hands of superstition.

Nicola Cabibbo

The aim of science is to discover and illuminate truth. And that, I take it, is the aim of literature, whether biography or history or fiction. It seems to me, then, that there can be no separate literature of science.

Rachel Louise Carson

Science, by itself, provides no panacea for individual, social, and economic ills. It can be effective in the national welfare only as a member of a team, whether the conditions be peace or war. But without scientific progress no amount of achievement in other directions can insure our health, prosperity, and security as a nation in the modern world.

Vannevar Bush

Science can be effective in the national welfare only as a member of a team, whether the conditions be peace or war. But without scientific progress no amount of achievement in other directions can insure our health, prosperity, and security as a nation in the modern world.

Vannevar Bush

The applications of science have built man a well-supplied house, and are teaching him to live healthily therein. They have enabled him to throw masses of people against another with cruel weapons. They may yet allow him truly to encompass the great record and to grow in the wisdom of race experience. He may perish in conflict before he learns to wield that record for his true good. Yet, in the application of science to the needs and desires of man, it would seem to be a singularly unfortunate stage at which to terminate the process, or to lose hope as to the outcome.

Vannevar Bush

A mathematician is not a man who can readily manipulate figures; often he cannot. He is not even a man who can readily perform the transformation of equations by the use of calculus. He is primarily an individual who is skilled in the use of symbolic logic on a high plane, and especially he is a man of intuitive judgment in the choice of the manipulative processes he employs.

Vannevar Bush

Machines with interchangeable parts can now be constructed with great economy of effort. In spite of much complexity, they perform reliably. Witness the humble typewriter, or the movie camera, or the automobile.

Vannevar Bush

This has not been a scientist's war; it has been a war in which all have had a part. The scientists, burying their old professional competition in the demand of a common cause, have shared greatly and learned much. It has been exhilarating to work in effective partnership. Now, for many, this appears to be approaching an end. What are the scientists to do next?
