Famous quotes containing the word science:

    Science is the only truth and it is the great lie. It knows nothing, and people think it knows everything. It is misrepresented. People think that science is electricity, automobilism, and dirigible balloons. It is something very different. It is life devouring itself. It is the sensibility transformed into intelligence. It is the need to know stifling the need to live. It is the genius of knowledge vivisecting the vital genius.
    Rémy De Gourmont (1858–1915)

    Curiosity engenders both science and scandal.
    Mason Cooley (b. 1927)

    Science is built up with facts, as a house is with stones. But a collection of facts is no more a science than a heap of stones is a house.
    Jules Henri Poincare (1854–1912)
