I was a daydreamer, and there is a lot of history and geography and science I missed out on because I was in my head. And I regret that.

Isaac Asimov

There is a single light of science, and to brighten it anywhere is to brighten it everywhere.

Modern science says: 'The sun is the past, the earth is the present, the moon is the future.' From an incandescent mass we have originated, and into a frozen mass we shall turn. Merciless is the law of nature, and rapidly and irresistibly we are drawn to our doom.

Kim Jong-un

Science and technology are a propellant for building a thriving country, and the happiness of the people and the future of the country hinge on their development.

Thomas Hobbes

Science is the knowledge of consequences, and dependence of one fact upon another.

William Gibson

Dreaming in public is an important part of our job description, as science writers, but there are bad dreams as well as good dreams. We're dreamers, you see, but we're also realists, of a sort.

Good Work Dreams

I schooled in Himachal Pradesh. I had taken up science and, initially, wanted to become a doctor. There are few career options for students of science though, so I shifted to Delhi and decided to try theater instead.

Robert Kennedy, Jr.

There is abundant science out there that connects mercury exposure in vaccines to not only autism, but to ASD, to SIDS, to ADD, ADHD, language tics - which is like Tourette Syndrome - OCD, asthma, food allergies, and diabetes.

I'm a real nerd for science. I love Neil deGrasse Tyson and 'Cosmos' and all that.

Alan Turing

Science is a differential equation. Religion is a boundary condition.

'Rocket Science' is really where I fell in love with filmmaking, I think 'Camp' was incredible, but it was so bizarre, and I was trying to find my footing in this world where you don't have an audience for immediate validation.

Paul Klee

The worst state of affairs is when science begins to concern itself with art.

William Osler

Medicine is a science of uncertainty and an art of probability.

At its heart, engineering is about using science to find creative, practical solutions. It is a noble profession.

Stephen Hawking

Science is not only a disciple of reason but, also, one of romance and passion.

Neil Armstrong

Geologists have a saying - rocks remember.

Isaac Asimov

The most exciting phrase to hear in science, the one that heralds new discoveries, is not 'Eureka!' but 'That's funny...'

Albert Einstein

Only two things are infinite, the universe and human stupidity, and I'm not sure about the former.

Susan Wojcicki

If everybody has to take biology and chemistry, they can take computer science. Computer science is a more useful skill right now than a lot of other things that people are learning at school.

Isaac Newton

To me there has never been a higher source of earthly honor or distinction than that connected with advances in science.

Hippocrates

Science is the father of knowledge, but opinion breeds ignorance.

You need virtual reality to understand high level science or high level math. It's very helpful to explain third and fourth dimensional things that people are constantly addressing in quantum physics. But, as soon as you're creating an avatar, and you can live and you can start to feel sensations on VR, that has gone too far.

Bertrand Russell

Science is what you know, philosophy is what you don't know.

Hippocrates

There are in fact two things, science and opinion; the former begets knowledge, the latter ignorance.

Camille Paglia

Modern bodybuilding is ritual, religion, sport, art, and science, awash in Western chemistry and mathematics. Defying nature, it surpasses it.

Conor McGregor

My preparation is about precision. It is a science.

Edgar Allan Poe

Science has not yet taught us if madness is or is not the sublimity of the intelligence.

Ralph Waldo Emerson

Science does not know its debt to imagination.

A snappy label and a manifesto would have been two of the very last things on my own career want list. That label enabled mainstream science fiction to safely assimilate our dissident influence, such as it was. Cyberpunk could then be embraced and given prizes and patted on the head, and genre science fiction could continue unchanged.

George Santayana

Theory helps us to bear our ignorance of facts.

Margaret Mead

Anthropology demands the open-mindedness with which one must look and listen, record in astonishment and wonder that which one would not have been able to guess.

Jeff Bezos

The human brain is an incredible pattern-matching machine.

Matthew McConaughey

I love having my hands in the dirt. It is never a science and always an art. There are no rules. And if it comes down to me versus that weed I'm trying to pull out of the ground that doesn't want to come out? I know I'll win.

Woodrow Wilson

The method of political science is the interpretation of life; its instrument is insight, a nice understanding of subtle, unformulated conditions.

Teaching was my transition from student life to working life. In those days, our system of education was a little different. The number of students in each class was huge. I think in political science general, which I taught, it was around 100.

Isaac Asimov

Individual science fiction stories may seem as trivial as ever to the blinder critics and philosophers of today - but the core of science fiction, its essence has become crucial to our salvation if we are to be saved at all.

A. P. J. Abdul Kalam

Science is a beautiful gift to humanity; we should not distort it.

Marie Curie

After all, science is essentially international, and it is only through lack of the historical sense that national qualities have been attributed to it.

Neil Armstrong

Science has not yet mastered prophecy. We predict too much for the next year and yet far too little for the next 10.

George Bernard Shaw

A fool's brain digests philosophy into folly, science into superstition, and art into pedantry. Hence University education.

Wilson Mizner

Art is science made clear.

All my mind was centered on my studies, which, especially at the beginning, were difficult. In fact, I was insufficiently prepared to follow the physical science course at the Sorbonne, for, despite all my efforts, I had not succeeded in acquiring in Poland a preparation as complete as that of the French students following the same course.

Jordan Peterson

There's no doubt that inequality destabilizes societies. I think the social science evidence on that front is crystal clear.

Oliver Wendell Holmes

I hate facts. I always say the chief end of man is to form general propositions - adding that no general proposition is worth a damn.

Plato

Science is nothing but perception.

Tom Felton

I like physics. I think it is the best science out of all three of them, because generally it's more useful. You learn about speed and velocity and time, and that's all clever stuff.

Matt Smith

It seems like there's a real appetite for science fiction in the States.

Marcus Aurelius

Nothing has such power to broaden the mind as the ability to investigate systematically and truly all that comes under thy observation in life.

Marcel Proust

As long as men are free to ask what they must, free to say what they think, free to think what they will, freedom can never be lost and science can never regress.

H. L. Mencken

Democracy is the art and science of running the circus from the monkey cage.

Kangana Ranaut

My parents wanted me to be a doctor. So I took up science, but then realised that my heart was not in it at all. The thought of treating ailing people was very depressing.

What's interesting about science is that we're constantly discovering new things about the universe, about ourselves, about our bodies, about diseases, about the possibilities of the future. It's amazing. Science is one of the coolest things about being a human being - without a doubt.

Isaac Asimov

Science fiction writers foresee the inevitable, and although problems and catastrophes may be inevitable, solutions are not.

William Blake

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.

Stephen Hawking

The universe is governed by science. But science tells us that we can't solve the equations, directly in the abstract.

Albert Einstein

The most beautiful thing we can experience is the mysterious. It is the source of all true art and science.

Nikola Tesla

Electrical science has disclosed to us the more intimate relation existing between widely different forces and phenomena and has thus led us to a more complete comprehension of Nature and its many manifestations to our senses.

I think that's what distinguishes Schmidt, really. In the movies now, so much of what is appealing to an audience is the dramatic or has to do with science fiction, and Schmidt is simply human. There's no melodrama; there's no device, It's just about a human being.

Nicole Scherzinger

It turns out that understanding the British public is not rocket science. The British appreciate honesty and they also have a bonkers, off-the-wall sense of humour like me.

Ralph Waldo Emerson

Men love to wonder, and that is the seed of science.

My social philosophy may be said to be enshrined in three words: liberty, equality and fraternity. Let no one, however, say that I have borrowed by philosophy from the French Revolution. I have not. My philosophy has roots in religion and not in political science. I have derived them from the teachings of my Master, the Buddha.

Equality Religion
Susan Wojcicki

Unless we make computer science a priority, we risk making gender, class, and racial disparities worse as jobs flow to those with a computer science background.

Oliver Wendell Holmes

Science is a first-rate piece of furniture for a man's upper chamber, if he has common sense on the ground-floor. But if a man hasn't got plenty of good common sense, the more science he has, the worse for his patient.

Tim Burton

When it comes to art and science, people don't like a lot of either. Instead of being open to it, they're closed off about it.

Genetic modification has many different areas, for example in medicine, and Britain is at the leading edge of this new technology. I don't know, but people tell me, it could indeed by the leading science of the 21st century. All I say to people is: 'Just keep an open mind and let us proceed according to genuine scientific evidence.'

William Blake

Art is the tree of life. Science is the tree of death.

Now that sports science is more advanced, we know that there are so many off-pitch factors that can affect how good you can become. If people are telling you to sleep a certain number of hours, eat specific foods, and drink a certain volume of fluids, then you have to be prepared to listen and learn.

Nikola Tesla

Electrical science has revealed to us the true nature of light, has provided us with innumerable appliances and instruments of precision, and has thereby vastly added to the exactness of our knowledge.

Science has a culture that is inherently cautious and that is normally not a bad thing. You could even say conservative, because of the peer review process and because the scientific method prizes uncertainty and penalises anyone who goes out on any sort of a limb that is not held in place by abundant and well-documented evidence.

William Gibson

I didn't have a manifesto. I had some discontent. It seemed to me that midcentury mainstream American science fiction had often been triumphalist and militaristic, a sort of folk propaganda for American exceptionalism.

Bill Watterson

That's the whole problem with science. You've got a bunch of empiricists trying to describe things of unimaginable wonder.

Things Trying

Of course I would disagree that there's a definitive science that has concluded that mankind has turned the earth's thermostat up and that we can turn the earth's thermostat down at will, we just haven't yet found the will. That's the argument on climate change.

Prince Charles

It is baffling, I must say, that in our modern world we have such blind trust in science and technology that we all accept what science tells us about everything - until, that is, it comes to climate science.

Marie Curie

When radium was discovered, no one knew that it would prove useful in hospitals. The work was one of pure science. And this is a proof that scientific work must not be considered from the point of view of the direct usefulness of it.

Stephen Hawking

Scientists have become the bearers of the torch of discovery in our quest for knowledge.

Robert Sheehan

As a kid, I didn't drift into the comic world too much because I preferred to read fantasies novels and science fiction.

Erich Fromm

The capacity to be puzzled is the premise of all creation, be it in art or in science.

Elon Musk

Mars is the only place in the solar system where it's possible for life to become multi-planetarian.

Jimi Hendrix

Imagination is the key to my lyrics. The rest is painted with a little science fiction.

Rob Lowe

I couldn't have gotten sober without rehab because I needed the science.

Carl Jung

We are born at a given moment, in a given place and, like vintage years of wine, we have the qualities of the year and of the season of which we are born. Astrology does not lay claim to anything more.

The whole of science, and one is tempted to think the whole of the life of any thinking man, is trying to come to terms with the relationship between yourself and the natural world. Why are you here, and how do you fit in, and what's it all about.

Milana Vayntrub

I'm not really into sci-fi movies, but I'm into the science of space a lot. I love astronomy and thinking about the nothingness of the everythingness of space.

Tina Turner

I was always attracted to science fiction movies.

Adam Smith

Adventure upon all the tickets in the lottery, and you lose for certain; and the greater the number of your tickets the nearer your approach to this certainty.

Remember, science fiction's always been the kind of first level alert to think about things to come. It's easier for an audience to take warnings from sci-fi without feeling that we're preaching to them. Every science fiction movie I have ever seen, any one that's worth its weight in celluloid, warns us about things that ultimately come true.

Ralph Waldo Emerson

Bad times have a scientific value. These are occasions a good learner would not miss.
