1.The good thing about science is that it’s true whether or not you believe in it.
2.“The good thing about science is that it’s true whether or not you believe in it.”
3.“Science is a way of thinking much more than it is a body of knowledge.”
4.“Science is a way of thinking much more than it is a body of knowledge.”
5.“Science is not meant to cure us of mystery, but to reinvent and reinvigorate it.”
6.“Scientists have become the bearers of the torch of discovery in our quest for knowledge.”
7.“Bad times have a scientific value. These are occasions a good learner would not miss.”
8.The scientist is not a person who gives the right answers, he’s one who asks the right questions.
9.“What I love about science is that as you learn, you don’t really get answers. You just get better questions.”
10.“The saddest aspect of life right now is that science gathers knowledge faster than society gathers wisdom.”
11.“The most beautiful thing we can experience is the mysterious. It is the source of all true art and science.”
12.“Science is the acceptance of what works and the rejection of what does not. That needs more courage than we might think.”
13.Science is the acceptance of what works and the rejection of what does not. That needs more courage than we might think.
14.“The scientist only imposes two things, namely truth and sincerity, imposes them upon himself and upon other scientists.”
15.A man who dares to waste one hour of time has not discovered the value of life.
16.We are storytelling animals, and cannot bear to acknowledge the ordinariness of our daily lives.
17.What is possible in the Cavendish Laboratory may not be too difficult in the sun.
18.The commonality between science and art is in trying to see profoundly – to develop strategies of seeing and showing.
19.“The day science begins to study non-physical phenomena, it will make more progress in one decade than in all the previous centuries of its existence.”
20.A scientist in his laboratory is not a mere technician: he is also a child confronting natural phenomena that impress him as though they were fairy tales.
21.Two things are infinite: the universe and human stupidity; and I’m not sure about the universe.
22.“I never teach my pupils. I only attempt to provide the conditions in which they can learn.”
23.“Progress is made by trial and failure; the failures are generally a hundred times more numerous than the successes, yet they are usually left unchronicled.”
24.“Modern science has been a voyage into the unknown, with a lesson in humility waiting at every stop. Many passengers would rather have stayed home.”
25.“The feeling of awed wonder that science can give us is one of the highest experiences of which the human psyche is capable.”
26.Nothing in life is to be feared, it is only to be understood. Now is the time to understand more, so that we may fear less.
27.Science and art sometimes can touch one another, like two pieces of the jigsaw puzzle which is our human life, and that contact may be made across the borderline between the two respective domains.
28.It is strange that only extraordinary men make discoveries, which later appear so easy and simple.
29.Art and science have so much in common – the process of trial and error, finding something new and innovative, and to experiment and succeed in a breakthrough.
30.“When a distinguished but elderly scientist states that something is possible, he is almost certainly right. When he states that something is impossible, he is very probably wrong.”
31.Understanding the history of matter and searching for its most interesting forms, such as galaxies, stars, planets and life, seems a suitable use for our intelligence.
32.There are only two ways to live your life. One is as though nothing is a miracle. The other is as though everything is a miracle.
33.“I learned very early the difference between knowing the name of something and knowing something.”
34.God created two acts of folly. First, He created the Universe in a Big Bang. Second, He was negligent enough to leave behind evidence for this act, in the form of microwave radiation.
35.“I seem to have been only like a boy playing on the seashore, and diverting myself in now and then finding a smoother pebble or a prettier shell than ordinary, whilst the great ocean of truth lay all undiscovered before me.”
36.We pass through this world but once. Few tragedies can be more extensive than the stunting of life, few injustices deeper than the denial of an opportunity to strive or even to hope, by a limit imposed from without, but falsely identified as lying within.
37.One, remember to look up at the stars and not down at your feet. Two, never give up work. Work gives you meaning and purpose and life are empty without it. Three, if you are lucky enough to find love, remember it is there and don’t throw it away.
38.A theory is a supposition which we hope to be true, a hypothesis is a supposition which we expect to be useful; fictions belong to the realm of art; if made to intrude elsewhere, they become either make-believes or mistakes.
39.The difference between science and the arts is not that they are different sides of the same coin… or even different parts of the same continuum, but rather, they are manifestations of the same thing. The arts and sciences are avatars of human creativity.
