Famous quotes containing the word science:

    The true knowledge or science which exists nowhere but in the mind itself, has no other entity at all besides intelligibility; and therefore whatsoever is clearly intelligible, is absolutely true.
    Ralph J. Cudworth (1617–1688)

    The method of political science ... is the interpretation of life; its instrument is insight, a nice understanding of subtle, unformulated conditions.
    Woodrow Wilson (1856–1924)

    I’ve been asked to give some words of advice for young women entering library/information science education. Does anyone ever take advice? The advice we give is usually what we would do or would have done if we had the chance, and the advice that’s taken, if ever, is often what we wanted to hear in the first place.
    Phyllis Dain (b. 1930)
