Science Quotes

The most beautiful experience we can have is the mysterious - the fundamental emotion which stands at the cradle of true art and true science.

Albert Einstein

Science can only determine what is, but not what shall be, and beyond its realm, value judgements remain indispensable. Religion, on the other hand, is concerned only with evaluating human thought and actions; it is not qualified to speak of real facts and the relationships between them.

Albert Einstein

Science is what you know. Philosophy is what you don't know.

Bertrand Russell

It is the tension between creativity and skepticism that has produced the stunning and unexpected findings of science.

Carl Sagan

Religions die when they are proved to be true. Science is the record of dead religions

Oscar Wilde

Science has proof without any certainty. Creationists have certainty without any proof

Ashley Montagu

Science cannot stop while ethics catches up - and nobody should expect scientists to do all the thinking for the country

Elvin Stackman

Science is the refusal to believe on the basis of hope.

Carrie P. Snow

The scientific mind does not so much provide the right answers as ask the right questions.

Claude Levi-Strauss

Science is analytical, descriptive, informative. Man does not live by bread alone, but by science he attempts to do so. Hence the deadliness of all that is purely scientific.

Eric Gill

In science, all facts, no matter how trivial or banal, enjoy democratic equality

Mary McCarthy

Science is the knowledge of consequences, and dependence of one fact upon another.

Thomas Hobbes

Science investigates religion interprets. Science gives man knowledge which is power religion gives man wisdom which is control.

Martin Luther King Jr

Science is a way of thinking much more than it is a body of knowledge.

Carl Sagan

The science of today is the technology of tomorrow.

Edward Teller

Science is not only compatible with spirituality; it is a profound source of spirituality

Carl Sagan

The continuity of our science has not been affected by all these turbulent happenings, as the older theories have always been included as limiting cases in the new ones.

Max Born

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 entertain no doubts as to the truths of the transfinites, which I recognized with God"s help and which, in their diversity, I have studied for more than twenty years; every year, and almost every day brings me further in this science.

Georg Ferdinand Ludwig Philipp Cantor

Science has a simple faith, which transcends utility. Nearly all men of science, all men of learning for that matter, and men of simple ways too, have it in some form and in some degree. It is the faith that it is the privilege of man to learn to understand, and that this is his mission. If we abandon that mission under stress we shall abandon it forever, for stress will not cease. Knowledge for the sake of understanding, not merely to prevail, that is the essence of our being. None can define its limits, or set its ultimate boundaries.

Vannevar Bush

All our steps in creating or absorbing material of the record proceed through one of the senses the tactile when we touch keys, the oral when we speak or listen, the visual when we read. Is it not possible that some day the path may be established more directly?

Vannevar Bush

Thus science may implement the ways in which man produces, stores, and consults the record of the race. It might be striking to outline the instrumentalities of the future more spectacularly, rather than to stick closely to the methods and elements now known and undergoing rapid development, as has been done here. Technical difficulties of all sorts have been ignored, certainly, but also ignored are means as yet unknown which may come any day to accelerate technical progress as violently as did the advent of the thermionic tube.

Vannevar Bush

The pioneer spirit is still vigorous within this nation. Science offers a largely unexplored hinterland for the pioneer who has the tools for his task. The rewards of such exploration both for the Nation and the individual are great. Scientific progress is one essential key to our security as a nation, to our better health, to more jobs, to higher standard of living, and to our cultural progress.

Vannevar Bush

To understand a science it is necessary to know its history.

Isidore Marie Auguste Franois Xavier Comte
