Famous quotes containing the word science:

    What an admirable training is science for the more active warfare of life! Indeed, the unchallenged bravery which these studies imply, is far more impressive than the trumpeted valor of the warrior.
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)

    Science is analytical, descriptive, informative. Man does not live by bread alone, but by science he attempts to do so. Hence the deadliness of all that is purely scientific.
    Eric Gill (1882–1940)

    Religions die when they are proved to be true. Science is the record of dead religions.
    Oscar Wilde (1854–1900)
