Science - Quotes

One thing I have learned in a long life: That all our science, measured against reality, is primitive and childlike – and yet, it is the most precious thing we have. - Albert Einstein

Science and technology revolutionize our lives, but memory, tradition and myth frame our response. - Arthur Schlesinger

Science can only ascertain what is, but not what should be, and outside of its domain value judgements of all kinds remain necessary. - Albert Einstein

Science consists exactly of those forms of knowledge that can be verified and duplicated by anybody. - Seth Lloyd

Science has an uncomfortable way of pushing human beings from center stage. In our prescientific stories, humans began as the focal point of Nature, living on an Earth that was the center of the universe. As the origins of the Earth and of mankind were investigated more carefully, it became clear that Nature had other interests beyond people, and the Earth was less central than previously hoped. Humankind was just one branch of the great family of life, and the Earth is a smallish planet orbiting an unexceptional sun quite far out on one arm of a run-of-the-mill spiral galaxy. - Seth Lloyd

Science has made us gods even before we are worthy of being men. - Jean Rostand

Science has proof without any certainty. Creationists have certainty without any proof. - Ashley Montague

Science is a combination of theory and experiment and the two together are how you make progress. - Lisa Randall

Science is a human activity, and the best way to understand it is to understand the individual human beings who practise it. Science is an art form and not a philosophical method. The great advances in science usually result from new tools rather than from new doctrines. … Every time we introduce a new tool, it always leads to new and unexpected discoveries, because Nature’s imagination is richer than ours. - Freeman Dyson

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

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

Science is an integral part of culture. It’s not this foreign thing, done by an arcane priesthood. It’s one of the glories of human intellectual tradition. - Stephen Jay Gould

Science is nothing but developed perception, interpreted intent, common sense rounded out and minutely articulated. - George Santayana

Science is nothing, but trained and organized common sense. - Thomas Henry Huxley

Science is organized knowledge. - Herbert Spencer

Science is the great antidote to the poison of enthusiasm and superstition. - Adam Smith

Science is the only religion of mankind. - Arthur C. Clarke

Science is the systematic classification of experience. - George Henry Lewes

Science knows no country, because knowledge belongs to humanity, and is the torch which illuminates the world. - Louis Pasteur
