Famous quotes containing the word science:

    Art is the beautiful way of doing things. Science is the effective way of doing things. Business is the economic way of doing things.
    Elbert Hubbard (1856–1915)

    Every known fact in natural science was divined by the presentiment of somebody, before it was actually verified.
    Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803–1882)

    By an application of the theory of relativity to the taste of readers, to-day in Germany I am called a German man of science, and in England I am represented as a Swiss Jew. If I come to be regarded as a bête noire the descriptions will be reversed, and I shall become a Swiss Jew for the Germans and a German man of science for the English!
    Albert Einstein (1879–1955)
