Quote Left Romance should never begin with sentiment. It should begin with science and end with a settlement. Quote Right
Quote Left It seems to me curious, not to say obscene and thoroughly terrifying, that it could occur to an association of human beings drawn together through need and chance and for profit into a company, an organ of journalism, to pry intimately into the lives of an undefended and appallingly damaged group of human beings, an ignorant and helpless rural family, for the purpose of parading the nakedness, disadvantage and humiliation of these lives before another group of human beings, in the name of science, of Quote Right
Quote Left The most exciting phrase to hear in science, the one that heralds new discoveries, is not 'Eureka!' (I found it!) but 'That's funny...' by Isaac Asimov Quote Right
Quote Left The grand aim of all science is to cover the greatest number of empirical facts by logical deduction from the smallest number of hypotheses or axioms. Quote Right
Quote Left The inspirational value of the space program is probably of far greater importance to education than any input of dollars... A whole generation is growing up which has been attracted to the hard disciplines of science and engineering by the romance of space. Quote Right
Quote Left A woman cannot do the thing she ought, which means whatever perfect thing she can, in life, in art, in science, but she fears to let the perfect action take her part and rest there: she must prove what she can do before she does it, -- prate of woman's rights, of woman's mission, woman's function, till the men (who are prating, too, on their side) cry, A woman's function plainly is... to talk. Poor souls, they are very reasonably vexed! Quote Right
Quote Left When I find myself in the company of scientists, I feel like a shabby curate who has strayed by mistake into a room full of dukes. Quote Right
Quote Left O Star-eyed Science! hast thou wandered there, to waft us home the message of despair? Quote Right
Quote Left I grew up in space times. In seventh grade, my teacher said we had to do math and science because the Russians were beating us in the space race. It was a real catalyst. I wish we had something like that today. Quote Right
Quote Left The present-day mentality, more perhaps than that of people in the past, seems opposed to a God of mercy, and in fact tends to exclude from life and to remove from the human heart the very idea of mercy. The word and the concept of 'mercy' seem to cause uneasiness in man, who, thanks to the enormous development of science and technology, never before known in history, has become master of the earth and has subdued and dominated it. This dominion over the earth, sometimes understood in a one-sided and superficial way, seems to leave no room for mercy.... Quote Right
Quote Left I hate science. It denies a man's responsibility for his own deeds, abolishes the brotherhood that springs from God's fatherhood. It is a hectoring, dictating expertise, which makes the least lovable of the Church Fathers seem liberal by contrast. It is far easier for a Hitler or a Stalin to find a mock-scientific excuse for persecution than it was for Dominic to find a mock-Christian one. Quote Right
Quote Left The future of humanity is uncertain, even in the most prosperous countries, and the quality of life deteriorates; and yet I believe that what is being discovered about the infinitely large and infinitely small is sufficient to absolve this end of the century and millennium. What a very few are acquiring in knowledge of the physical world will perhaps cause this period not to be judged as a pure return of barbarism. Quote Right
Quote Left It sometimes strikes me that the whole of science is a piece of impudence; that nature can afford to ignore our impertinent interference. If our monkey mischief should ever reach the point of blowing up the earth by decomposing an atom, and even annihilated the sun himself, I cannot really suppose that the universe would turn a hair. Quote Right
Quote Left In the fall, when you see geese heading south for the winter fly along in v formation, one might consider what science has discovered as to why geese fly this way. Each bird flaps its wings creating uplift for the bird immediately following. A flock has a greater flying range in formation than a single bird would have on its own. When a goose falls out of formation, it feels the drag and resistance of trying to fly alone and quickly rejoins the formation. The goose takes advantage of the lifting power of the bird in front. The geese in formation honk from behind to encourage those flying up front to keep their speed. When a goose gets sick or wounded and falls out of formation, two other geese will fall out of formation with that goose to follow it down to lend help and protection. They stay with that fallen goose until it is able to fly or it dies. Only then do they launch out on their own or with another formation to catch up with their flock. People, who share a common direction and sense of community, can reach a goal more quickly and easily because they are traveling on the thrust of one another. It is harder to do something alone than together. It is beneficial to take turns doing demanding work. By sharing leadership and depending upon others in a group, there is a chance to lead and an opportunity to rest. Quote Right
Quote Left For me chemistry represented an indefinite cloud of future potentialities which enveloped my life to come in black volutes torn by fiery flashes, like those which had hidden Mount Sinai. Like Moses, from that cloud I expected my law, the principle of order in me, around me, and in the world. I would watch the buds swell in spring, the mica glint in the granite, my own hands, and I would say to myself: I will understand this, too, I will understand everything. Quote Right
Quote Left Fashion is the science of appearances, and it inspires one with the desire to seem rather than to be. Quote Right
Quote Left After listening to a lecture on evolution by a science professor, a student wrote a poem and titled it ''The Amazing Professor.'' The poem read: Once I was a tadpole when I began to begin. Then I was a frog with my tail tucked in. Next I was a monkey on a coconut tree. Now I am a doctor with a Ph.D. Quote Right
Quote Left I almost think it is the ultimate destiny of science to exterminate the human race. Quote Right
Quote Left As to the sufferers, whose sole inheritance was labour, and who had lost that inheritance - who could not get work, and consequently could not get wages, and consequently could not get bread - they were left to suffer on, perhaps inevitably left. It would not do to stop the progress of invention, to damage science by discouraging its improvements; the war could not be terminated; efficient relief could not be raised. There was no help then; so the unemployed underwent their destiny - ate the bread and drank the waters of affliction. Misery generates hate. These sufferers hated the machines which they believed took their bread from them; they hated the buildings which contained those machines; they hated the manufacturers who owned those buildings. Quote Right
Quote Left That certainly is one approach to take. My own is to acknowledge the inner child and try to work with my first fascination with science fiction. I have tried to build on its idea content and narrative drive rather than to discard them. Quote Right
Quote Left What the hell is nostalgia doing in a science-fiction film? With the whole universe and all the future to play in, Lucas took his marvelous toys and crawled under the fringed cloth on the parlor table, back into a nice safe hide hole, along with Flash Gordon and the Cowardly Lion and Luke Skywalker and the Flying Aces and the Hitler Jugend. If there's a message there, I don't think I want to hear it. Quote Right
Quote Left Science and technology revolutionize our lives, but memory, tradition and myth frame our response. Expelled from individual consciousness by the rush of change, history finds its revenge by stamping the collective unconsciousness with habits, values, expectations, dreams. The dialectic between past and future will continue to form our lives. Quote Right
Quote Left The truth, I am convinced, is that there is no longer a poetical audience among the higher class of minds, that moral, political, and physical science have entirely withdrawn from poetry the attention of all whose attention is worth having; and that the poetical reading public being composed of the mere dregs of the intellectual community, the most sufficing passport to their favour must rest on the mixture of a little easily-intelligible portion of mawkish sentiment with an absolute negation of reason and knowledge. Quote Right
Quote Left It is possible to regulate watercourses over any given distance without embankment works; to transport timber and other materials, even when heavier than water, for example ore, stones, etc., down the centre of such water-courses; to raise the height of the water table in the surrounding countryside and to endow the water with all those elements necessary for the prevailing vegetation. Furthermore it is possible in this way to render timber and other such materials non-inflammable and rot resistant; to produce drinking and spa-water for man, beast and soil of any desired composition and performance artificially, but in the way that it occurs in Nature; to raise water in a vertical pipe without pumping devices; to produce any amount of electricity and radiant energy almost without cost; to raise soil quality and to heal cancer, tuberculosis and a variety of nervous disorders... the practical implementation of this ... would without doubt signify a complete reorientation in all areas of science and technology. Quote Right
Quote Left The work of science is to substitute facts for appearances, and demonstrations for impressions. Quote Right
Quote Left The nineteenth century believed in science but the twentieth century does not. Science Quote Right
Quote Left We place no reliance on virgin or pidgeon.Our method is science, our aim is religion. Quote Right
Quote Left Art is science made clear. Quote Right
Quote Left Science says 'We must live,' and seeks the means of prolonging, increasing, facilitating and amplifying life, of making it tolerable and acceptable, wisdom says 'We must die,' and seeks how to make us die well. Quote Right
Quote Left However baby man may brag of his science and skill, and however much, in a flattering future, that science and skill may augment; yet for ever... Quote Right

Quote Left If there will be another generation after we are extinct and all gone, I know they will suffer, not from the ignorance of science alone, or technology and civilization, I am certain the next generation will suffer from ignorance of the Bible which most people have as mere decoration in their homes Quote Right
Quote Left In the name of science as a blessing from God. Quote Right
Quote Left Religion says dajal shows wondrous things and in my eyes science is dajal and I believe in it. Quote Right
Quote Left I am beast if the mind rules over me and I am human if conscience rules over the mind Quote Right
Quote Left Love does not condemn , but the conscience of the mind is a ruthless dictator which does not rest until it’s demands are met. The conscience of mind promises nothing except the religion of perfectionism which is the most oppressive system to life. It assumes the role as the antagonist or the victim of neither which know peace. The laws of love is universal and never changing, but the laws of the conscience of mind is whatever it percieves as truth. Quote Right
Quote Left They mourn their loved ones theyve killed with your tongues, and until their day of judgement, their consciences with them are laid to rest. Quote Right

Quote Left silence is the gravity of learning and understanding; silence is the science of depth leaning Quote Right
Quote Left "For me it's not the inner scientist, it's the inner poet that's exited...It's such a beautiful thing." -Dr Marek Kukula (astronomer). This is what I understand. If I can EVER write anything that becomes a conduit for this understanding, I will feel I have bridged the gap between science and art with the possibility we are left in awe. It is from this place of awe that we ask questions and seek to know the larger or diminutive picture. Let us always remain curiouser and curiouser. -Edlynn Nau Quote Right
Quote Left PART 2 Therefore, science will move us forward to a time when it will test our faith. Science will prove that faith in Religion is not misguided. As energy cannot be destroyed but converted, the energy of life changes when the body expires. Hand in hand science will prove the faith of religion as soon as we figure out where to look for the next step in the cycle beyond life. Quote Right
Quote Left Science confirms what Religion can’t prove. Science is the force that advances society and Religion offers the promise of comfort for the soul. Quote Right
Quote Left Science, religions, economics, politics, cultures all these are for our welfare; we’re not created for these. So practice these for our equal welfare; by these don’t practices hate vengeance and death. Quote Right
Quote Left Practice the conscience of philanthropy, you’ll get world as heaven Quote Right
Quote Left Give me the conscience of humanity; I’ll give you peaceful world Quote Right
Quote Left 'A writer writes, always!' Write for ANY reason, just write! I believe we are special tools for the Creative Conscience, and learning to hear that voice begins by just articulating or activating, and staying attuned to what happens. Put the pen to paper - or fingers to the keyboard - see where it takes you, and apply those results to your puddle of wisdom... swirl it, dip your toes, taste the sweet and bitter. Yes - just DO it! Quote Right
Quote Left Medical Science Quote No. 2: Stay hydrated. NB: For clarity, and with some sadness, I advise that scotch is not a suitable fluid for this. Quote Right
Quote Left Medical Science Quote No. 1: Use it or lose it. NB: This quote will eventually also wind up in my epic series on evolution, as soon as I can figure out what follows... Quote Right

Quote Left Always do what is right. Now, sometimes doing the right thing has unexpected consequences. Nevertheless, do what is right anyway because your conscience will be clean and your integrity upheld. Quote Right
Quote Left Understanding physics and personality are alike in that applicators of the science need to understand how temporary and limited truth can ever be. Quote Right
Quote Left Truth is not meant to please the Hearer but the Speaker. Truth is not to satisfy the Minds of Others but the Conscience of the Holder! Quote Right
Quote Left Is it a map of what people are thinking or is it how people are thinking.Social media e.g this one tells us about who we are as the world; it is the collective conscience of man. #c_chachinated Quote Right
Quote Left Science is the proof of God's existence Quote Right
Quote Left Liberalism without boundaries is a disease. Conservatism without conscience is a plague. Capitalism without empathy is the father of both. Quote Right
