Famous quotes containing the words sciences and/or behavioural:
“Criticism is a study by which men grow important and formidable at very small expense. The power of invention has been conferred by nature upon few, and the labour of learning those sciences which may, by mere labour, be obtained, is too great to be willingly endured; but every man can exert some judgment as he has upon the works of others; and he whom nature has made weak, and idleness keeps ignorant, may yet support his vanity by the name of critic.”
—Samuel Johnson (17091784)
“The tabloids are like animals, with their own behavioural patterns. Theres no point in complaining about them, any more than complaining that lions might eat you.”
—David Mellor (b. 1949)
