Famous quotes containing the words science, art and/or museum:
“For us necessity is not as of old an image without us, with whom we can do warfare; it is a magic web woven through and through us, like that magnetic system of which modern science speaks, penetrating us with a network subtler than our subtlest nerves, yet bearing in it the central forces of the world.”
—Walter Pater (18391894)
“It is of the highest importance in the art of detection to be able to recognise out of a number of facts which are incidental and which are vital.... I would call your attention to the curious incident of the dog in the night-time.
The dog did nothing in the night-time.
That was the curious incident.”
—Sir Arthur Conan Doyle (18591930)
“A fine-looking mill, but no machinery inside.”
—Hawaiian saying no. 1702, lelo NoEau, collected, translated, and annotated by Mary Kawena Pukui, Bishop Museum Press, Hawaii (1983)
