Science without religion is lame, religion without science is blind.
Albert Einstein (1879 - 1955), "Science, Philosophy and Religion: a Symposium",
1941

If an elderly but distinguished scientist says that something is possible he
is almost certainly right, but if he says that it is impossible he is very
probably wrong.
Arthur C. Clarke (1917 - )

Science has proof without any certainty. Creationists have certainty
without any proof.
Ashley Montague

Science may set limits to knowledge, but should not set limits to
imagination.
Bertrand Russell (1872 - 1970)

I maintain there is much more wonder in science than in pseudoscience.
And in addition, to whatever measure this term has any meaning, science
has the additional virtue, and it is not an inconsiderable one, of being true.
Carl Sagan (1934 - 1996)

All science is either physics or stamp collecting.
Ernest Rutherford (1871 - 1937), in J. B. Birks "Rutherford at Manchester" (1962)

Science is nothing but developed perception, interpreted intent, common
sense rounded out and minutely articulated.
George Santayana (1863 - 1952)

Nothing shocks me. I'm a scientist.
Harrison Ford (1942 - ), as Indiana Jones

Science is facts; just as houses are made of stones, so is science made of
facts; but a pile of stones is not a house and a collection of facts is not
necessarily science.
Henri Poincare (1854 - 1912)

There are in fact two things, science and opinion; the former begets
knowledge, the latter ignorance.
Hippocrates (460 BC - 377 BC), Law

Science is organized knowledge. Wisdom is organized life.
Immanuel Kant (1724 - 1804)

The most exciting phrase to hear in science, the one that heralds new
discoveries, is not 'Eureka!' (I found it!) but 'That's funny ...'
Isaac Asimov (1920 - 1992)
Perfect as the wing of a bird may be, it will never enable the bird to fly if
unsupported by the air. Facts are the air of science. Without them a man of
science can never rise.
Ivan Pavlov (1849 - 1936)

It is a good morning exercise for a research scientist to discard a pet
hypothesis every day before breakfast. It keeps him young.
Konrad Lorenz (1903 - 1989)

The cloning of humans is on most of the lists of things to worry about
from Science, along with behaviour control, genetic engineering,
transplanted heads, computer poetry and the unrestrained growth of plastic
flowers.
Lewis Thomas (1913 - 1993)

There are no such things as applied sciences, only applications of science.
Louis Pasteur (1822 - 1895)

As an adolescent I aspired to lasting fame, I craved factual certainty, and I
thirsted for a meaningful vision of human life - so I became a scientist.
This is like becoming an archbishop so you can meet girls.
M. Cartmill

There is something fascinating about science. One gets such wholesale
returns of conjecture out of such a trifling investment of fact.
Mark Twain (1835 - 1910)

Our scientific power has outrun our spiritual power. We have guided
missiles and misguided men.
Martin Luther King Jr. (1929 - 1968), Strength to Love, 1963

As soon as questions of will or decision or reason or choice of action arise,
human science is at a loss.
Noam Chomsky (1928 - ), in a television interview
