Famous quotes containing the words science, prizes, minister and/or prime:

    The whole of science is nothing more than a refinement of everyday thinking.
    Albert Einstein (1879–1955)

    She prizes not such trifles as these are.
    The gifts she looks from me are packed and locked
    Up in my heart, which I have given already,
    But not delivered.
    William Shakespeare (1564–1616)

    Canst thou not minister to a mind diseased,
    Pluck from the memory a rooted sorrow,
    Raze out the written troubles of the brain,
    And with some sweet oblivious antidote
    Cleanse the fraught bosom of that perilous stuff
    Which weighs upon the heart?
    William Shakespeare (1564–1616)

    I did not know I was in my prime until afterwards.
    Mason Cooley (b. 1927)
