A fool's brain digests philosophy into folly, science into superstition, and art into pedantry. Hence University education.
-- George Bernard Shaw

In computer science, we stand on each other's feet.
-- Brian K. Reid

In science it often happens that scientists say, "You know that's a really good argument; my position is mistaken," and then they would actually change their minds and you never hear that old view from them again. They really do it. It doesn't happen as o ften as it should, because scientists are human and change is sometimes painful. But it happens every day. I cannot recall the last time someting like that happened in politics or religion.
-- Carl Sagan

-- Gerald Holton

Mark all mathematical heads which be wholly and only bent on these sciences, how solitary they be themselves, how unfit to live with others, how unapt to serve the world.
-- Roger Ascham

Now that practical skills have developed enough to provide adequately for material needs, one of these sciences which are not devoted to utilitarian ends has been able to arise in Egypt, the priestly caste there having the leisure necessary for disinterested research.
-- Aristotle

-- Ashley Montague

Science is a differential equation. Religion is a boundry condition.
-- Alan Turing

Science is a wonderful thing if one does not have to earn one's living at it.
-- Albert Einstein

Science without religion is lame; religion without science is blind.
-- Albert Einstein

The goal of Computer Science is to build something that will last at least until we've finished building it.

The mathematical sciences particularly exhibit order, symmetry, and limitation; and these are the greatest forms of the beautiful.
-- Aristotle

The most beautiful thing we can experience is the mysterious. It is the source of all true art and all science. He to whom this emotion is a stranger, who can no longer pause to wonder and stand rapt in awe, is as good as dead: his eyes are closed.
-- Albert Einstein

The most exciting phrase to hear in science, the one that heralds new discoveries, is not "Eureka!" but "That's funny. . ."
-- Isaac Asimov

The whole of science is nothing more than a refinement of everyday thinking.
-- Albert Einstein

Thou shalt not answer questionnaires or quizzes upon world affairs, nor with compliance take any test. Thou shalt not sit with statisticians nor commit a social science.
-- W.H. Auden

What business has science and capitalism got, bringing all these new inventions into the works, before society has produced a generation educated up to using them.
-- Henrik Ibsen
