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.

Woodrow Wilson

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

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.

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.

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.

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

Albert Einstein

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

Ralph Waldo Emerson

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

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.

Genetic modification has many different areas, for example in medicine, and Britain is at the leading edge of this new technology.

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.

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

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.

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.

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.

Adam Smith

When you're thirsty and it seems that you could drink the entire ocean, that's faith; when you start to drink and finish only a glass or two, that's science.

Albert Einstein

No amount of experimentation can ever prove me right; a single experiment can prove me wrong.

Making movies is not rocket science. It's about relationships and communication and strangers coming together to see if they can get along harmoniously, productively, and creatively. That's a challenge. When it works, it's fantastic and will lift you up. When it doesn't work, it's almost just as fascinating.

Stephen Hawking

I believe there are no questions that science can't answer about a physical universe.

Stephen Hawking

If you believe in science, like I do, you believe that there are certain laws that are always obeyed.

Anton Chekhov

The wealthy are always surrounded by hangers-on; science and art are as well.

Julia Roberts

'Snow White' is an old fairy tale, so obviously the idea of vanity and obsession with youth is long-standing. With today's science, people have become crazy with trying to move their face around. It's bizarre.

W. H. Auden

'Healing,' Papa would tell me, 'is not a science, but the intuitive art of wooing nature.'

Nature Art Healing
Stephen Hawking

The whole history of science has been the gradual realization that events do not happen in an arbitrary manner, but that they reflect a certain underlying order, which may or may not be divinely inspired.

Oscar Wilde

Success is a science; if you have the conditions, you get the result.

Success Success
Stephen Hawking

Time travel used to be thought of as just science fiction, but Einstein's general theory of relativity allows for the possibility that we could warp space-time so much that you could go off in a rocket and return before you set out.

Matthew McConaughey

It's not a science when you are judging art, but we'd be remiss to say you can't look at something and say, 'This is more well done than that.'

Elbert Hubbard

Art is the beautiful way of doing things. Science is the effective way of doing things. Business is the economic way of doing things.

Helen Keller

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.

William James

Man lives for science as well as bread.

Woodrow Wilson

Politics I conceive to be nothing more than the science of the ordered progress of society along the lines of greatest usefulness and convenience to itself.

Science has been quite embattled. It's the most important thing there is. An arts graduate is not going to fix global warming. They may do other valuable things, but they are not going to fix the planet or cure cancer or get rid of malaria.

Karl Marx

The product of mental labor - science - always stands far below its value, because the labor-time necessary to reproduce it has no relation at all to the labor-time required for its original production.

Bertrand Russell

Religion is something left over from the infancy of our intelligence, it will fade away as we adopt reason and science as our guidelines.

Intelligence Religion
Steven Wright

Karl Marx

Natural science will in time incorporate into itself the science of man, just as the science of man will incorporate into itself natural science: there will be one science.

When I wrote 'Neuromancer', I had a list in my head of all the things the future was assumed to be which it would not be in the book I was about to write. In a sense, I intended 'Neuromancer', among other things, to be a critique of all the aspects of science fiction that no longer satisfied me.

John F. Kennedy

Let both sides seek to invoke the wonders of science instead of its terrors. Together let us explore the stars, conquer the deserts, eradicate disease, tap the ocean depths, and encourage the arts and commerce.

Stars Togetherness
