He who would do good to another must do it in minute particulars;General good is the plea of the scoundrel, hypocrite, and flatterer:For art and science cannot exist but in minutely organized Particulars.
Science, like life, feeds on its own decay. New facts burst old rules; then newly divined conceptions bind old and new together into a reconciling law.
Science is all those things which are confirmed to such a degree that it would be unreasonable to withhold one’s provisional consent.
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.
The ultimate aim of the modern movement in biology is in fact to explain all biology in terms of physics and chemistry.
Global warming science is uneven and evolving.
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.
In the end, science offers us the only way out of politics. And if we allow science to become politicized, then we are lost. We will enter the Internet version of the dark ages, an era of shifting fears and wild prejudices, transmitted to people who don’t know any better.
Science and technology revolutionize our lives, but memory, tradition and myth frame our response.
Science… never solves a problem without creating ten more
Science may have found a cure for most evils; but it has found no remedy for the worst of them all — the apathy of human beings.
Scientists were rated as great heretics by the church, but they were truly religious men because of their faith in the orderliness of the universe.
No science is immune to the infection of politics and the corruption of power.
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.
Science is a first-rate piece of furniture for a man’s upper chamber, if he has common sense on the ground floor.
Science is organized knowledge. Wisdom is organized life.
Science is organized common sense where many a beautiful theory was killed by an ugly fact.
Science without conscience is the soul’s perdition.
Science investigates religion interprets. Science gives man knowledge which is power religion gives man wisdom which is control.
Science is a method to keep yourself from kidding yourself
To understand a science it is necessary to know its history.
The progress of science is the discovery at each step of a new order which gives unity to what had seemed unlike
It is through science that we prove, but through intuition that we discover.
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.
Science, in the very act of solving problems, creates more of them.
All religions, arts and sciences are branches of the same tree. All these aspirations are directed toward ennobling man’s life, lifting it from the sphere of mere physical existence and leading the individual towards freedom.
Science is but the exchange of ignorance for that which is another kind of ignorance
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.
Science is nothing but developed perception, interpreted intent, common sense rounded out and minutely articulated.
The issue is what is the social science atom.
The most remarkable discovery made by scientists is science itself.
Politics is not an exact science.
Science is nothing but perception
In Science the credit goes to the man who convinces the world, not to the man to whom the idea first occurred.
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.
Science is not only compatible with spirituality; it is a profound source of spirituality
Induction is the glory of science and the scandal of philosophy.
In essence, science is a perpetual search for an intelligent and integrated comprehension of the world we live in.
Science, like art, is not a copy of nature but a re-creation of her.
Every science begins as philosophy and ends as art.
Science cannot stop while ethics catches up – and nobody should expect scientists to do all the thinking for the country
Science is the topography of ignorance.
Science is nothing more than a method of inquiry. The method says an assertion is valid and merits universal acceptance only if it can be independently verified. The impersonal rigor of the method means it is utterly apolitical. A truth in science is verifiable whether you are black or white, male or female, old or young. It’s verifiable whether you like the results of a study, or you don’t.
[Science is] the labor and handicraft of the mind.
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.
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?
There are in fact two things, science and opinion; the former begets knowledge, the latter ignorance.
Ethics and Science need to shake hands.
Science knows it doesn’t know everything; otherwise, it’d stop. But just because science doesn’t know everything doesn’t mean you can fill in the gaps with whatever fairy tale most appeals to you.
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.
Science cannot resolve moral conflicts, but it can help to more accurately frame the debates about those conflicts.
Learn sciences which offer you both your corrective destinies and corrective threats.
The nature of the chemical bond is the problem at the heart of all chemistry.
The whole of science is nothing more than a refinement of everyday thinking.
Science has proof without any certainty. Creationists have certainty without any proof
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.
The most beautiful experience we can have is the mysterious – the fundamental emotion which stands at the cradle of true art and true science.
Science is built up of facts, as a house is built of stones; but an accumulation of facts is no more a science than a heap of stones is a house.
Modern science is still trying to produce a tranquilizer more effective than a few kind words
Science increases our power in proportion as it lowers our pride.
