science quotes

#1866 Jean Paul Sartre

Politics is a science. You can demonstrate that you are right and that others are wrong. .

Jean Paul Sartre Quotes about science
#2513 Winston Churchill

In former days, when wars arose from individual causes, from the policy of a Minister or the passion of a King, when they were fought by small regular armies of professional soldiers, and when their course was retarded by the difficulties of communication and supply, and often suspended by the winter season, it was possible to limit the liabilities of the combatants. But now, when mighty populations are impelled on each other, each individual severally embittered and inflamed—when the resources of science and civilisation sweep away everything that might mitigate their fury, a European war can only end in the ruin of the vanquished and the scarcely less fatal commercial dislocation and exhaustion of the conquerors. Democracy is more vindictive than Cabinets. The wars of peoples will be more terrible than those of kings. .

Winston Churchill Quotes about science
#2872 Napoleon I of France

You cannot drag a man's conscience before any tribunal, and no one is answerable for his religious opinions to any power on earth. .

Napoleon I of France Quotes about science
#2970 Henrik Ibsen

I'm afraid for all those who'll have the bread snatched from their mouths by these machines. You are very fond, sir, of talking about the consideration we owe to the community; it seems to me, however, that the community has its duties too. What business has science and capitalism got, bringing all these new inventions into the works, before society has produced a generation educated up to using them! .

Henrik Ibsen Quotes about science
#3082 The Tempest

Know thus far forth: By accident most strange, bountiful Fortune — Now my dear lady — hath mine enemies Brought to this shore; and by my prescience I find my zenith doth depend upon A most auspicious star, whose influence If now I court not, but omit, my fortunes Will ever after droop. .

The Tempest Quotes about science
#3230 A Tale of Two Cities

The Dover mail was in its usual genial position that the guard suspected the passengers, the passengers suspected one another and the guard, they all suspected everybody else, and the coachman was sure of nothing but the horses; as to which cattle he could with a clear conscience have taken his oath on the two Testaments that they were not fit for the journey. .

A Tale of Two Cities Quotes about science
#3740 Aristotle

Those who assert that the mathematical sciences say nothing of the beautiful or the good are in error. For these sciences say and prove a great deal about them; if they do not expressly mention them, but prove attributes which are their results or definitions, it is not true that they tell us nothing about them. The chief forms of beauty are order and symmetry and definiteness, which the mathematical sciences demonstrate in a special degree. .

Aristotle Quotes about science
#3867 Francis Bacon

This misplacing hath caused a deficience, or at least a great improficience in the sciences themselves. For the handling of final causes, mixed with the rest in physical inquiries, hath intercepted the severe and diligent inquiry of all real and physical causes, and given men the occasion to stay upon these satisfactory andcauses, to the great arrest and prejudice of further discovery. For this I find done not only by , who ever anchoreth upon that shore, but by , , and others which do usually likewise fall upon these flats of discoursing causes. .

Francis Bacon Quotes about science
#3881 Francis Bacon

By far the greatest obstacle to the progress of science and to the undertaking of new tasks and provinces therein is found in this — that men despair and think things impossible. .

Francis Bacon Quotes about science
#3888 Francis Bacon

The cause and root of nearly all evils in the sciences is this — that while we falsely admire and extol the powers of the human mind we neglect to seek for its true helps. .

Francis Bacon Quotes about science
#3891 Francis Bacon

It cannot be that axioms established by argumentation should avail for the discovery of new works, since the subtlety of nature is greater many times over than the subtlety of argument. But axioms duly and orderly formed from particulars easily discover the way to new particulars, and thus render sciences active. .

Francis Bacon Quotes about science
#3892 Francis Bacon

Further, it will not be amiss to distinguish the three kinds and, as it were, grades of ambition in mankind. The first is of those who desire to extend their own power in their native country, a vulgar and degenerate kind. The second is of those who labor to extend the power and dominion of their country among men. This certainly has more dignity, though not less covetousness. But if a man endeavor to establish and extend the power and dominion of the human race itself over the universe, his ambition (if ambition it can be called) is without doubt both a more wholesome and a more noble thing than the other two. Now the empire of man over things depends wholly on the arts and sciences. For we cannot command nature except by obeying her. .

Francis Bacon Quotes about science
#3907 Francis Bacon

But by far the greatest obstacle to the progress of science and to the undertaking of new tasks and provinces therein is found in this — that men despair and think things impossible. .

Francis Bacon Quotes about science
#4050 Francis Bacon

Books must follow sciences, and not sciences books. .

Francis Bacon Quotes about science
#4542 Ralph Waldo Emerson

Broader and deeper we must write our annals, from an ethical reformation, from an influx of the ever new, ever sanative conscience, if we would trulier express our central and wide-related nature, instead of this old chronology of selfishness and pride to which we have too long lent our eyes. Already that day exists for us, shines in on us at unawares, but the path ofand of letters is not the way into nature. The idiot, the Indian, the child, and unschooled farmer's boy, stand nearer to the light by which nature is to be read, than the dissector or the antiquary. .

Ralph Waldo Emerson Quotes about science
#5305 Karl Marx

The product of mental labor — science — always stands far below its value, because the labor-time necessary to reproduce it has no relation at all to the labor-time required for its original production. .

Karl Marx Quotes about science

Every beginning is difficult, holds in all sciences. .

Every poet has trembled on the verge of science. .

Henry David Thoreau Quotes about science
#6335 Henry David Thoreau

A very few, as heroes, patriots, martyrs, reformers in the great sense, and men, serve the State with their consciences also, and so necessarily resist it for the most part; and they are commonly treated by it as enemies. .

Henry David Thoreau Quotes about science
#6743 Voltaire

"A false science makes atheists, a true science prostrates men before the Deity" .

Voltaire Quotes about science
#6792 Adlai Stevenson

The whole notion of loyalty inquisitions is a national characteristic of the police state, not of democracy. The history of Soviet Russia is a modern example of this ancient practice. I must, in good conscience, protest against any unnecessary suppression of our rights as free men. We must not burn down the house to kill the rats. .

Adlai Stevenson Quotes about science
#7312 Leo Tolstoy

The error arises from the learned jurists deceiving themselves and others, by asserting that government is not what it really is, one set of men banded together to oppress another set of men, but, as shown by science, is the representation of the citizens in their collective capacity. .

Leo Tolstoy Quotes about science
#7538 P. J. O'Rourke

Ecology is the science of everything. Nobody knows everything. Nobody even knows everything about any one thing. And most of us don't know much. Say it's ten-thirty on a Saturday night. Where are your teenage children? I didn't ask where they said they were going. Where are they really? What are they doing? Who are they with? Have you met the other kids' families? And what is tonight's pot smoking, wine-cooler drinking, and sex in the backseats of cars going to mean in a hundred years? Now extend these questions to the entire solar system. .

P. J. O'Rourke Quotes about science
#8029 StanisЕ‚aw Lem

I have fundamental reservations to this adaptation. First of all I would have liked to see the planet Solaris which the director unfortunately denied me as the film was to be a cinematically subdued work. And secondly — as I told Tarkovsky during one of our quarrels — he didn't make Solaris at all, he made Crime and Punishment. What we get in the film is only how this abominable Kelvin has driven poor Harey to suicide and then he has pangs of conscience which are amplified by her appearance; a strange and incomprehensible appearance. [...] .

StanisЕ‚aw Lem Quotes about science
#8213 H. L. Mencken

Conscience is the inner voice that warns us somebody may be looking. .

H. L. Mencken Quotes about science
#8240 H. L. Mencken

Conscience is a mother-in-law whose visit never ends. .

H. L. Mencken Quotes about science
#8389 Samuel Adams

And that the said Constitution be never construed to authorize Congress to infringe the just liberty of the press, or the rights of conscience; or to prevent the people of the United States, who are peaceable citizens, from keeping their own arms; or to raise standing armies, unless necessary for the defense of the United States, or of some one or more of them; or to prevent the people from petitioning, in a peaceable and orderly manner, the federal legislature, for a redress of grievances; or to subject the people to unreasonable searches and seizures of their persons, papers or possessions. .

Samuel Adams Quotes about science
#8400 Samuel Adams

Freedom of thought and the right of private judgment, in matters of conscience, driven from every other corner of the earth, direct their course to this happy country as their last asylum. .

Samuel Adams Quotes about science
#8404 Geoffrey Chaucer

For out of olde feldes, as men seith, Cometh al this new corn fro yeer to yere; And out of olde bokes, in good feith, Cometh al this newe science that men lere. .

Geoffrey Chaucer Quotes about science
#8604 Samuel Johnson

"Some," answered Imlac, "have indeed said that the soul is material, but I can scarcely believe that any man has thought it, who knew how to think; for all the conclusions of reason enforce the immateriality of mind, and all the notices of sense and investigations of science, concur to prove the unconsciousness of matter. .

Samuel Johnson Quotes about science
#9151 Donald Knuth

Science is what we understand well enough to explain to a computer. Art is everything else we do. .

Donald Knuth Quotes about science
#9169 Donald Knuth

We should continually be striving to transform every art into a science: in the process, we advance the art. .

Donald Knuth Quotes about science
#9185 Edsger W. Dijkstra

For me, the first challenge for computing science is to discover how to maintain order in a finite, but very large, discrete universe that is intricately intertwined. And a second, but not less important challenge is how to mould what you have achieved in solving the first problem, into a teachable discipline: it does not suffice to hone your own intellect (that will join you in your grave), you must teach others how to hone theirs. The more you concentrate on these two challenges, the clearer you will see that they are only two sides of the same coin: teaching yourself is discovering what is teachable. .

Edsger W. Dijkstra Quotes about science
#9289 Niels Bohr

For a parallel to the lesson of atomic theory regarding the limited applicability of such customary idealizations, we must in fact turn to quite other branches of science, such as psychology, or even to that kind of epistemological problems with which already thinkers likeandhave been confronted, when trying to harmonize our position as spectators and actors in the great drama of existence. .

Niels Bohr Quotes about science
#9510 Chester Bowles

To some extent we are all the prisoners of ; we see each other in terms of distorted and oversimplified images. Better communication in the realm of ideas, of the arts, and of science can help refashion these false images. And by seeing more clearly we may act more wisely. .

Chester Bowles Quotes about science
#9540 ‰mile Zola

And now we come to thecase. Three years have passed, many consciences remain profoundly troubled, become anxious, investigate, and wind up convinced that Dreyfus is innocent. .

‰mile Zola Quotes about science
#9962 Charles Babbage

As soon as an Analytical Engine exists, it will necessarily guide the future course of the science. Whenever any result is sought by its aid, the question will then arise — by what course of calculation can these results be arrived at by the machine in the shortest time? .

Charles Babbage Quotes about science
#10097 Technology

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

Technology Quotes about science
#10194 Buckminster Fuller

I seek through comprehensive anticipatory design science and its reductions to physical practices to reform the environment instead of trying to reform humans, being intent thereby to accomplish prototyped capabilities of doing more with less... () .

Buckminster Fuller Quotes about science
#10195 Buckminster Fuller

It seems to demonstrate that periods of industrial activity in technical syntheses of principles, data, free energy and energy as "matter," find highest employment by the fear-amassed credits of warfare. Therefore the assumption approaches fact that war promotes the major technical advances of civilization... What has not been clear is that the potential of this emergency-born technology has always accrued to human's prewar individual initiatives taken in a humble but irrepressible progression of assumptions, measurements, deductions, and codifications of pure science. (1947) .

Buckminster Fuller Quotes about science
#10244 Buckminster Fuller

We must start with scientific fundamentals, and that means with the data of experiments and not with assumed axioms predicated only upon the misleading nature of that which only superficially seems to be obvious. It is the consensus of great scientists that science is the attempt to set in order the facts of experience. .

Buckminster Fuller Quotes about science
#10245 Buckminster Fuller

The word generalization in literature usually means covering too much territory too thinly to be persuasive, let alone convincing. In science, however, a generalization means a principle that has been found to hold true in every special case. ... The principle of leverage is a scientific generalization. .

Buckminster Fuller Quotes about science
#10544 W. H. Auden

Politics cannot be a science, because in politics theory and practice cannot be separated, and the sciences depend upon their separation. .

W. H. Auden Quotes about science
#10599 Karl Popper

The game of science is, in principle, without end. He who decides one day that scientific statements do not call for any further test, and that they can be regarded as finally verified, retires from the game. .
