Albert Einstein
Not everything that can be counted counts, and not everything that counts can be counted.
If we knew what it was we were doing, it would not be called research, would it?
As far as the laws of mathematics refer to reality, they are not certain, and as far as they are certain, they do not refer to reality.
Arthur Schopenhauer
All truth passes through three stages. First, it is ridiculed. Second, it is violently opposed. Third, it is accepted as being self-evident.
Bill Wulf
There is only one nature - the division into science and engineering is a human imposition, not a natural one. Indeed, the division is a human failure; it reflects our limited capacity to comprehend the whole.
C.S. Lewis
If the solar system was brought about by an accidental collision, then the appearance of organic life on this planet was also an accident, and the whole evolution of Man was an accident too. If so, then all our present thoughts are mere accidents - the accidental by-product of the movement of atoms. And this holds for the thoughts of the materialists and astronomers as well as for anyone else's. But if their thoughts - i.e., of Materialism and Astronomy - are merely accidental by-products, why should we believe them to be true? I see no reason for believing that one accident should be able to give me a correct account of all the other accidents. It's like expecting that the accidental shape taken by the splash when you upset a milk-jug should give you a correct account of how the jug was made and why it was upset.
For the wise men of old the cardinal problem had been how to conform the soul to reality. For magic and applied science alike the problem is how to subdue reality to the wishes of men.
Man's conquest of Nature turns out, in the moment of its consummation, to be Nature's conquest of Man.
Carl Jung
Science is the tool of the Western mind and with it more doors can be opened than with bare hands. It is part and parcel of our knowledge and obscures our insight only when it holds that the understanding given by it is the only kind there is.
Carl Sagan
It is far better to grasp the Universe as it really is than to persist in delusion, however satisfying and reassuring.
Charles Darwin
It is those who know little, and not those who know much, who so positively assert that this or that problem will never be solved by science.
A scientific man ought to have no wishes, no affections, -- a mere heart of stone.
Charles H. Duell
Everything that can be invented has been invented.
Christopher Morley
People like to imagine that because all our mechanical equipment moves so much faster, that we are thinking faster, too.
Don Quixote
Facts are the enemy of truth.
Frank Lloyd Wright
A doctor can bury his mistakes but an architect can only advise his clients to plant vines.
GK Chesterton
In science, 'fact' can only mean 'confirmed to such a degree that it would be perverse to withhold provisional assent.' I suppose that apples might start to rise tomorrow, but the possibility does not merit equal time in physics classrooms.
Gloria Steinem
Logic is in the eye of the logician.
When ideas fail, words come in very handy.
H. H. Munro
A little inaccuracy sometimes saves a ton of explanation.
