Conscience is the inner voice that warns us somebody may be looking.
H.L. Mencken

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

Science is a mechanism, a way of trying to improve your knowledge of nature. It's a system for testing your thoughts against the universe, and seeing whether they match.
Isaac Asimov

The most exciting phrase to hear in science, the one that heralds new discoveries, is not 'Eureka' (I found it) but 'That's funny ...'
Isaac Asimov

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

The Religion that is afraid of science dishonors God and commits suicide.
Ralph Waldo Emerson

Reason often makes mistakes, but conscience never does.
Josh Billings

In its famous paradox, the equation of money and excrement, psychoanalysis becomes the first science to state what common sense and the poets have long known -- that the essence of money is in its absolute worthlessness.
Norman O. Brown

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.
Socrates

The man who acts never has any conscience no one has any conscience but the man who thinks.
Johann von Goethe

Give me the liberty to know, to utter, and to argue freely according to conscience, above all liberties.
John Milton

The great tragedy of science -- the slaying of a beautiful hypothesis by an ugly fact.
Thomas Huxley

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

Science is nothing but trained and organized common sense, differing from the latter only as a veteran may differ from a raw recruit and its methods differ from those of common sense only as far as the guardsman's cut and thrust differ from the manner in which a savage wields his club.
Thomas Huxley

It is by the goodness of God that in our country we have those three unspeakably precious things freedom of speech, freedom of conscience, and the prudence never to practice either of them.
Mark Twain

There is something fascinating about science. One gets such wholesale returns of conjecture out of such a trifling investment of fact.
Mark Twain

Philosophy is the science which considers truth.
Aristotle

The conscience of a people is their power.
John Dryden

In no sense do I advocate evading or defying the law ... That would lead to anarchy. An individual who breaks a law that his conscience tells him is unjust, and who willingly accepts the penalty of imprisonment in order to arouse the conscience of the community over its injustice, is in reality expressing the highest respect for law.
Martin Luther King, Jr.

The true science and study of man is man.
Pierre Charron

Science is one thing, wisdom is another. Science is an edged tool, with which men play like children, and cut their own fingers.
Sir Arthur Eddington

For the truth of the conclusions of physical science, observation is the supreme Court of Appeal. It does not follow that every item which we confidently accept as physical knowledge has actually been certified by the Court our confidence is that it would be certified by the Court if it were submitted. But it does follow that every item of physical knowledge is of a form which might be submitted to the Court. It must be such that we can specify (although it may be impracticable to carry out) an observational procedure which would decide whether it is true or not. Clearly a statement cannot be tested by observation unless it is an assertion about the results of observation. Every item of physical knowledge must therefore be an assertion of what has been or would be the result of carrying out a specified observational procedure.
Sir Arthur Eddington

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

A good conscience is a continual feast.
Robert Burton

All a man can betray is his conscience.
Joseph Conrad

Fashion is the science of appearances, and it inspires one with the desire to seem rather than to be.
Michel de Montaigne

Science is a first-rate piece of furniture for a man's upper chamber, if he has common sense on the ground floor.
Oliver Wendell Holmes

No science is immune to the infection of politics and the corruption of power.
Jacob Chanowski

In science the credit goes to the man who convinces the world, not to the man to whom the idea first occurs.
William Osler

There is no pillow so soft as a clear conscience.
French Proverb

Every human being has a work to carry on within, duties to perform abroad, influence to exert, which are peculiarly his, and which no conscience but his own can teach.
William Ellery Channing

Freedom is a clear conscience.
Periander

There is one thing alone that stands the brunt of life throughout its course a quiet conscience.
Euripides

All Reformers, however strict their social conscience, live in houses just as big as they can pay for.
Logan Pearsall Smith

Most people sell their souls, and live with a good conscience on the proceeds.
Logan Pearsall Smith

Anthropology is the most humanistic of the sciences and the most scientific of the humanities.
Alfred L. Kroeber

If faith cannot be reconciled with rational thinking, it has to be eliminated as an anachronistic remnant of earlier stages of culture and replaced by science dealing with facts and theories which are intelligible and can be validated.
Erich Fromm

The advantage of the emotions is that they lead us astray, and the advantage of science is that it is not emotional.
Oscar Wilde

I feel within me a peace above all earthly dignities, a still and quiet conscience.
William Shakespeare

The play's the thing Wherein I'll catch the conscience of the king.
William Shakespeare

To be, or not to be that is the question Whether 'tis nobler in the mind to suffer The slings and arrows of outrageous fortune, Or to take arms against a sea of troubles, And by opposing end them To die to sleep No more and by a sleep to say we end The heartache and the thousand natural shocks That flesh is heir to,--'t is a consummation Devoutly to be wish'd. To die, to sleep To sleep perchance to dream ay, there's the rub For in that sleep of death what dreams may come, When we have shuffled off this mortal coil, Must give us pause there's the respect That makes calamity of so long life For who would bear the whips and scorns of time, The oppressor's wrong, the proud man's contumely, The pangs of despised love, the law's delay, The insolence of office and the spurns That patient merit of the unworthy takes, When he himself might his quietus make With a bare bodkin who would fardels bear, To grunt and sweat under a weary life, But that the dread of something after death, The undiscover'd country from whose bourn No traveller returns, puzzles the will And makes us rather bear those ills we have Than fly to others that we know not of Thus conscience does make cowards of us all And thus the native hue of resolution Is sicklied o'er with the pale cast of thought, And enterprises of great pith and moment With this regard their currents turn awry, And lose the name of action.
William Shakespeare

When science, art, literature, and philosophy are simply the manifestation of personality they are on a level where glorious and dazzling achievements are possible, which can make a man's name live for thousands of years. But above this level, far above, separated by an abyss, is the level where the highest things are achieved. These things are essentially anonymous.
Simone Weil

Science advances through tentative answers to a series of more and more subtle questions which reach deeper and deeper into the essence of natural phenomena.
Louis Pasteur

There are no such things as applied sciences, only applications of science.
Louis Pasteur

If any human being earnestly desire to push on to new discoveries instead of just retaining and using the old to win victories over Nature as a worker rather than over hostile critics as a disputant to attain , in fact, clear and demonstrative knowlegde instead of attractive and probable theory we invite him as a true son of Science to join our ranks.
Francis Bacon

Books must follow sciences, and not sciences books.
Francis Bacon

Science has done more for the development of western civilization in one hundred years than Christianity did in eighteen hundred years.
John Burroughs

Of all tyrannies a tyranny exercised for the good of its victims may be the most oppressive. It may be better to live under robber barons than under omnipotent moral busybodies. The robber baron's cruelty may sometimes sleep, his cupidity may at some point be satiated but those who torment us for our own good will torment us without end for they do so with the approval of their own conscience.
Clive Staples Lewis

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.
Hellen Keller

Politicians should read science fiction, not westerns and detective stories.
Arthur C. Clarke

...the safest course is to do nothing against one's conscience. With this secret, we can enjoy life and have no fear from death.
Voltaire

The harder the conflict, the more glorious the triumph. What we obtain too cheap, we esteem too lightly it is dearness only that gives everything its value. I love the man that can smile in trouble, that can gather strength from distress and grow brave by reflection. 'Tis the business of little minds to shrink but he whose heart is firm, and whose conscience approves his conduct, will pursue his principles unto death.
Thomas Paine

A lot of people mistake a short memory for a clear conscience.
Doug Larson

Science may set limits to knowledge, but should not set limits to imagination.
Bertrand Russell

Exclusively of the abstract sciences, the largest and worthiest portion of our knowledge consists of aphorisms and the greatest and best of men is but an aphorism.
Samuel Taylor Coleridge

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

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.
Arthur Schlesinger, Jr.

Language is only the instrument of science, and words are but the signs of ideas.
Samuel Johnson

Life is not an exact science, it is an art.
Samuel Butler

Happiness hates the timid So does science
Eugene O'Neill

Physics does not change the nature of the world it studies, and no science of behavior can change the essential nature of man, even though both sciences yield technologies with a vast power to manipulate their subject matters.
B. F. Skinner

Shun no toil to make yourself remarkable by some talent or other yet do not devote yourself to one branch exclusively. Strive to get clear notions about all. Give up no science entirely for science is but one.
Lucius Annaeus Seneca

Gods are fragile things they may be killed by a whiff of science or a dose of common sense.
Chapman Cohen

Labor to keep alive in your breast that little spark of celestial fire called conscience.
George Washington

We've arranged a civilization in which most crucial elements profoundly depend on science and technology. We have also arranged things so that almost no one understands science and technology. This is a prescription for disaster. We might get away with it for a while, but sooner or later this combustible mixture of ignorance and power is going to blow up in our faces.
Carl Sagan

I maintain there is much more wonder in science than in pseudoscience. And in addition, to whatever measure this term has any meaning, science has the additional virtue, and it is not an inconsiderable one, of being true.
Carl Sagan

If we long to believe that the stars rise and set for us, that we are the reason there is a Universe, does science do us a disservice in deflating our conceits
Carl Sagan

Skeptical scrutiny is the means, in both science and religion, by which deep insights can be winnowed from deep nonsense.
Carl Sagan

There will one day spring from the brain of science a machine or force so fearful in its potentialities, so absolutely terrifying, that even man, the fighter, who will dare torture and death in order to inflict torture and death, will be appalled, and so abandon war forever.
Thomas Alva Edison

Fear is the tax that conscience pays to guilt.
Howard Aiken

Science has to be understood in its broadest sense, as a method for comprehending all observable reality, and not merely as an instrument for acquiring specialized knowledge.
Alexis Carrel

Science without religion is lame, religion without science is blind.
Albert Einstein

Our defense is not in our armaments, nor in science, nor in going underground. Our defense is in law and order.
Albert Einstein

The mere formulation of a problem is far more essential than its solution, which may be merely a matter of mathematical or experimental skills. To raise new questions, new possibilities, to regard old problems from a new angle requires creative imagination and marks real advances in science.
Albert Einstein

The most beautiful thing we can experience is the mysterious. It is the source of all true art and all science. He to whom this emotion is a stranger, who can no longer pause to wonder and stand rapt in awe, is as good as dead his eyes are closed.
Albert Einstein

The most beautiful experience we can have is the mysterious - the fundamental emotion which stands at the cradle of true art and true science.
Albert Einstein

...One of the strongest motives that lead men to art and science is escape from everyday life with its painful crudity and hopeless dreariness, from the fetters of one's own ever-shifting desires. A finely tempered nature longs to escape from the personal life into the world of objective perception and thought.
Albert Einstein

Why does this magnificent applied science, which saves work and makes life easier, bring us little happiness The simple answer runs because we have not yet learned to make sensible use of it.
Albert Einstein

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.
Albert Einstein

Where the world ceases to be the scene of our personal hopes and wishes, where we face it as free beings admiring, asking and observing, there we enter the realm of Art and Science.
Albert Einstein

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

The state exists for man, not man for the state. The same may be said of science. These are old phrases, coined by people who saw in human individuality the highest human value. I would hesitate to repeat them, were it not for the ever recurring danger that they may be forgotten, especially in these days of organization and stereotypes.
Albert Einstein

The physicist cannot simply surrender to the philosopher the critical contemplation of the theoretical foundations for he himself knows best and feels most surely where the shoe pinches.... he must try to make clear in his own mind just how far the concepts which he uses are justified... The whole of science is nothing more than a refinement of everyday thinking.
Albert Einstein

The most beautiful and most profound emotion we can experience is the sensation of the mystical. It is the sower of all true science. So to whom this emotion is a stranger, who can no longer wonder and stand rapt in awe, is as good as dead. To know that which is impenetretrable to us really exists, manifesting itself as the highest wisdom and the most radiant beauty which our dull faculties can comprehend only in their primitive forms-this knowledge, this feeling is at the center of true religiousness.
Albert Einstein

Ethical axioms are found and tested not very differently from the axioms of science. Truth is what stands the test of experience.
Albert Einstein

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

Art is science made clear.
Jean Cocteau

Every great advance in science has issued from a new audacity of imagination.
John Dewey

There is one thing even more vital to science than intelligent methods and that is, the sincere desire to find out the truth, whatever it may be.
Charles Sanders Pierce

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

The radical novelty of modern science lies precisely in the rejection of the belief, which is at the heart of all popular religion, that the forces which move the stars and atoms are contingent upon the preferences of the human heart.
Richard Adams

That the said Constitution shall never be construed to authorize Congress to infringe the just liberty of the press or the rights of conscience or to prevent the people of the United states who are peaceable citizens from keeping their own arms...
Samuel Adams

It is only by introducing the young to great literature, drama and music, and to the excitement of great science that we open to them the possibilities that lie within the human spirit -- enable them to see visions and dream dreams.
Eric Anderson

Conscience and reputation are two things. Conscience is due to yourself, reputation to your neighbour.
Saint Augustine

The instinct to command others, in its primitive essence, is a carnivorous, altogether bestial and savage instinct. Under the influence of the mental development of man, it takes on a somewhat more ideal form and becomes somewhat ennobled, presenting itself as the instrument of reason and the devoted servant of that abstraction, or political fiction, which is called the public good. But in its essence it remains just as baneful, and it becomes even more so when, with the application of science, it extends its scope and intensifies the power of its action. If there is a devil in history, it is this power principle.
Mikhail Aleksandrovich Bakunin

Anthropology is the science which tells us that people are the same the whole world over-except when they are different.
Nancy Banks-Smith

Conscience is the perfect interpreter of life.
Karl Barth

In science as in love, too much concentration on technique can often lead to impotence.
P.L. Berger

The Social Sciences are good at accounting for disasters once they have taken place.
Claude T Bissell

The important thing in science is not so much to obtain new facts as to discover new ways of thinking about them.
Sir William Bragg

I believe in an immortal soul. Science has proved that nothing disintegrates into nothingness. Life and soul, therefore, cannot disintegrate into nothingness, and so are immortal.
Wernher Magnus Maximilian von Braun

Destiny is but a phrase of the weak human heart - the dark apology for every error. The strong and virtuous admit no destiny. On earth conscience guides in heaven God watches. And destiny is but the phantom we invoke to silence the one and dethrone the other.
Edward George Earle Lytton Bulwer-Lytton

Without Christ, sciences in every department are vain....The man who knows not God is vain, though he should be conversant with every branch of learning. Nay more, we may affirm this too with truth, that these choice gifts of God -- expertness of mind, acuteness of judgment, liberal sciences, and acquaintance with languages, are in a manner profaned in every instance in which they fall to the lot of wicked men.
John Calvin

As soon as questions of will or decision or reason or choice of action arise, human science is at a loss.
Noam Chomsky

Be you in what line of life you may, it will be amongst your misfortunes if you have not time properly to attend to pecuniary monetary matters. Want of attention to these matters has impeded the progress of science and of genius itself.
William Cobbett

False facts are highly injurious to the progress of science, for they often endure long but false views, if supported by some evidence, do little harm, for everyone takes a salutory pleasure in proving their falseness.
Charles Robert Darwin

Fortunately science, like that nature to which it belongs, is neither limited by time nor by space. It belongs to the world, and is of no country and no age. The more we know, the more we feel our ignorance the more we feel how much remains unknown.
Humphrey Davy

Science conducts us, step by step, through the whole range of creation, until we arrive, at length, at God.
Marguerite de Valois

Computer Science is no more about computers than astronomy is about telescopes.
E. W. Dijkstra

In science one tries to tell people, in such a way as to be understood by everyone, something that no one ever knew before. But in poetry, it's the exact opposite.
Paul Adrien Maurice Dirac

Putting on the spectacles of science in expectation of finding an answer to everything looked at signifies inner blindness.
J. Frank Dobie

Technology is a gift of God. After the gift of life it is perhaps the greatest of God's gifts. It is the mother of civilizations, of arts and of sciences.
Freeman John Dyson

Science is not a sacred cow. Science is a horse. Don't worship it. Feed it.
Aubrey Eben

Statistics The only science that enables different experts using the same figures to draw different conclusions.
Evan Esar

By keenly confronting the enigmas that surround us, and by considering and analysing the observations that I have made, I ended up in the domain of mathematics, Although I am absolutely without training in the exact sciences, I often seem to have more in common with mathematicians than with my fellow artists.
M. C. Escher

If you thought that science was certain - well, that is just an error on your part.
Richard Phillips Feynman

Science and religion no more contradict each other than light and electricity.
William Hiram Foulkes

A science is any discipline in which the fool of this generation can go beyond the point reached by the genius of the last generation.
Max Gluckman

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.
Stephen Jay Gould

Anthropologists are a connecting link between poets and scientists though their field-work among primitive peoples has often made them forget the language of science.
Robert Graves

I think somebody should come up with a way to breed a very large shrimp. That way, you could ride him, then after you camped at night, you could eat him. How about it, science
Jack Handey Deep Thoughts

Everything is theoretically impossible, until it is done. One could write a history of science in reverse by assembling the solemn pronouncements of highest authority about what could not be done and could never happen.
Robert Anson Heinlein

I cannot and will not cut my conscience to fit this year's fashions.
Lillian Hellman

We are at that very point in time when a 400-year-old age is dying and another is struggling to be born - a shifting of culture, science, society and institutions enormously greater than the world has ever experienced. Ahead, the possibility of regeneration of individuality, liberty, community and ethics such as the world has never known, and a harmony with nature, with one another and with the divine intelligence such as the world has always dreamed.
Dee W. Hock

Strategy is a style of thinking, a conscious and deliberate process, an intensive implementation system, the science of insuring future success.
Pete Johnson

Through pride we are ever deceiving ourselves. But deep down below the surface of the average conscience a still, small voice says to us, 'Something is out of tune.'
Carl Gustav Jung

Science is organized knowledge. Wisdom is organized life.
Immanuel Kant

My father said, 'Politics asks the question Is it expedient Vanity asks Is it popular But conscience asks Is it right'
Dexter Scott King

In the world of human thought generally, and in physical science particularly, the most important and fruitful concepts are those to which it is impossible to attach a well-defined meaning.
H. A. Kramers

The one thing that doesn't abide by majority rule is a person's conscience.
Harper Lee

Science when well digested is nothing but good sense and reason.
Stanislaw I. Leszczynski

The Anglo-Saxon conscience doesn't keep you from doing anything. It just keeps you from enjoying it.
Salvador de Madaringa

Conscience is the inner voice that warns us that someone might be looking.
Henry Louis Mencken

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

I know my fate. One day my name will be associated with the memory of something tremendous--a crisis without equal on earth, the most profound collision of conscience, a decision that was conjured up against everything that had been believed, demanded, hallowed so far. I am no man, I am dynamite.
Friedrich Wilhelm Nietzsche

All credibility, all good conscience, all evidence of truth come only from the senses.
Friedrich Wilhelm Nietzsche

Science cannot resolve moral conflicts, but it can help to more accurately frame the debates about those conflicts.
John Owen

Religion belongs to the realm that is inviolable before the law of causation and therefore closed to science.
Max Karl Ernst Ludwig Planck

Justice requires that to lawfully constituted Authority there be given that respect and obedience which is its due that the laws which are made shall be in wise conformity with the common good and that, as a matter of conscience all men shall render obedience to these laws.
Pope Pius XI

Science at best is not wisdom it is knowledge. Wisdom is knowledge tempered with judgment.
Lord Ritchie-Calder

The question grows more troubling with each passing year how much of what yesterday's science fiction regarded as unspeakably dreadful has become today's award-winning research
Theodore Roszak

The only possible conclusion that social sciences can draw is some do, some don't.
Ernest Rutherford

You should never bet against anything in science at odds of more than about 10-12 to 1.
Ernest Rutherford

All science is either physics or stamp collecting.
Ernest Rutherford

Be the master of your will and the slave of your conscience.
Hasidic Saying

Science is the refusal to believe on the basis of hope.
Carrie P. Snow

Nothing strengthens the judgment and quickens the conscience like individual responsibility.
Elizabeth Cady Stanton

To sit alone with my conscience will be judgment enough for me.
William Stubbs

Formerly, when religion was strong and science weak, men mistook magic for medicine now, when science is strong and religion weak, men mistake medicine for magic.
Thomas Szasz

The most beautiful thing to experience is the mysterious. It is the true source of life, art and science.
Michael Talbot

The cloning of humans is on most of the lists of things to worry about from Science, along with behaviour control, genetic engineering, transplanted heads, computer poetry and the unrestrained growth of plastic flowers.
Lewis Thomas

A democratic government is only as strong as the alert conscience of its people.
Charles W. Tobey

Books are the carriers of civilization. Without books, history is silent, literature dumb, science crippled, thought and speculation at a standstill.
Barbara Tuchman

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.
Miguel de Unamuno

Advertising may be described as the science of arresting the human intelligence long enough to get money from it.
Unknown

The task of science is to stake out the limits of the knowable, and to center consciousness within them.
Rudolf Virchow

Look to your health and if you have it, praise God and value it next to conscience for health is the second blessing that we mortals are capable of, a blessing money can't buy.
Izaak Walton

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

There were many ways of not burdening one's conscience, of shunning responsibility, looking away, keeping mum. When the unspeakable truth of the Holocaust then became known at the end of the war, all too many of us claimed that they had not known anything about it or even suspected anything.
Richard von Weizscker

Before a war military science seems a real science, like astronomy but after a war it seems more like astrology.
Rebecca West

It does not matter what men say in words, so long as their activities are controlled by settled instincts. The words may ultimately destroy the instincts. But until this has occurred, words do not count. - from Science and the Modern World
Alfred North Whitehead

So far as modern science is concerned, we have to abandon completely the idea that by going into the realm of the small we shall reach the ultimate foundations of the universe. I believe we can abandon this idea without any regret. The universe is infinite in all directions, not only above us in the large but also below us in the small.
Emil Wiechert

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.
Bill Wulf

The engineer is the key figure in the material progress of the world. It is his engineering that makes a reality of the potential value of science by translating scientific knowledge into tools, resources, energy and labor to bring them into the service of man ... To make contributions of this kind the engineer requires the imagination to visualize the needs of society and to appreciate what is possible as well as the technological and broad social age understanding to bring his vision to reality.
Sir Eric Ashby

Most advances in science come when a person for one reason or another is forced to change fields.
Peter Borden

Engineering is not merely knowing and being knowledgeable, like a walking encyclopedia engineering is not merely analysis engineering is not merely the possession of the capacity to get elegant solutions to non-existent engineering problems engineering is practicing the art of the organized forcing of technological change... Engineers operate at the interface between science and society...
Dean Gordon Brown

In science one tries to tell people, in such a way as to be understood by everyone, something that no one ever knew before. But in poetry, it's the exact opposite.
Paul Dirac

In science the credit goes to the man who convinces the world, not the man to whom the idea first occurs.
Sir Francis Darwin

Engineering is the art or science of making practical.
Samuel C. Florman

Philosophers say a great deal about what is absolutely necessary for science, and it is always, so far as one can see, rather naive, and probably wrong.
Richard Feynman

The man who acts never has any conscience no one has any conscience but the man who thinks.
Johann Wolfgang von Goethe

Mathematics is the queen of the sciences.
Carl Friedrich Gauss

Engineering is a great profession. There is the fascination of watching a figment of the imagination emerge through the aid of science to a plan on paper. Then it moves to realisation in stone or metal or energy. Then it brings homes to men or women. Then it elevates the standard of living and adds to the comforts of life. This is the engineer's high privilege.
Herbert Hoover

Engineering is the professional and systematic application of science to the efficient utilization of natural resources to produce wealth.
T. J. Hoover

I conceive the essential task of religion to be to develop the consciences, the ideals, and the aspirations of mankind.
Robert Millikan

Science is facts just as houses are made of stones, so is science made of facts but a pile of stones is not a house and a collection of facts is not necessarily science.
Henri Poincare

There is no witness so dreadful, no accuser so terrible as the conscience that dwells in the heart of every man.
Polybius

Cowardice asks Is it safe Expediency asks Is it politic But Conscience asks Is it right
William Punshon

Perfect as the wing of a bird may be, it will never enable the bird to fly if unsupported by the air. Facts are the air of science. Without them a man of science can never rise.
Ivan Pavlov

Engineering is the professional art of applying science to the optimum conversion of natural resources to the benefit of man.
Ralph J. Smith

Fear is the tax that conscience pays to guilt.
George Sewell

As a doctor, as a man of science, I can tell you there is no such thing as curses Everything just happens as a question of probability. The statistical likelihood of a specific event.
Andrew Schneider

Engineering is the science of economy, of conserving the energy, kinetic and potential, provided and stored up by nature for the use of man. It is the business of engineering to utilize this energy to the best advantage, so that there may be the least possible waste.
William A. Smith

Isn't it interesting that the same people who laugh at science fiction listen to weather forecasts and economists
Kelvin III Throop

The sciences do not try to explain, they hardly even try to interpret, they mainly make models. By a model is meant a mathematical construct which, with the addition of certain verbal interpretations, describes observed phenomena. The justification of such a mathematical construct is solely and precisely that it is expected to work.
Johann von Neumann

Acceptance without proof is the fundamental characteristic of Western religion, rejection without proof is the fundamental characteristic of Western science.
Gary Zukav
