Famous quotes containing the words science and/or education:

    You are all fundamentalists with a top dressing of science. That is why you are the stupidest of conservatives and reactionists in politics and the most bigoted of obstructionists in science itself. When it comes to getting a move on you are all of the same opinion: stop it, flog it, hang it, dynamite it, stamp it out.
    George Bernard Shaw (1856–1950)

    Human history becomes more and more a race between education and catastrophe.
    —H.G. (Herbert George)
