Famous quotes containing the words system, school, science and/or high:
“Science is a system of statements based on direct experience, and controlled by experimental verification. Verification in science is not, however, of single statements but of the entire system or a sub-system of such statements.”
—Rudolf Carnap (18911970)
“School days, school days; dear old golden rule days.
Readin and ritin and rithmetic; taught to the tune of a hickry stick.”
—Will D. Cobb (18761930)
“You are bothered, I suppose, by the idea that you cant possibly believe in miracles and mysteries, and therefore cant make a good wife for Hazard. You might just as well make yourself unhappy by doubting whether you would make a good wife to me because you cant believe the first axiom in Euclid. There is no science which does not begin by requiring you to believe the incredible.”
—Henry Brooks Adams (18381918)
“An art whose medium is language will always show a high degree of critical creativeness, for speech is itself a critique of life: it names, it characterizes, it passes judgment, in that it creates.”
—Thomas Mann (18751955)
