    Quotations about Science

    • The most exciting phrase to hear in science, the one that heralds new discoveries, is not 'Eureka!' (I found it!) but 'That's funny ...'
    • The important thing in science is not so much to obtain new facts as to discover new ways of thinking about them.
    • If scientific reasoning were limited to the logical processes of arithmetic, we should not get very far in our understanding of the physical world. One might as well attempt to grasp the game of poker entirely by the use of the mathematics of probability.
    • 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.
    • As soon as questions of will or decision or reason or choice of action arise, human science is at a loss.
      in a television interview, by Noam Chomsky
    • 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.
      Clarke's first law, by Arthur C. Clarke
    • I am among those who think that science has great beauty. A scientist in his laboratory is not only a technician: he is also a child placed before natural phenomena which impress him like a fairy tale.
    • We must not forget that when radium was discovered no one knew that it would prove useful in hospitals. The work was one of pure science. And this is a proof that scientific work must not be considered from the point of view of the direct usefulness of it. It must be done for itself, for the beauty of science, and then there is always the chance that a scientific discovery may become like the radium a benefit for humanity.
      Lecture at Vassar College, May 14, 1921, by Marie Curie
    • In science the credit goes to the man who convinces the world, not the man to whom the idea first occurs.
      Eugenics Review, April 1914, by Sir Francis Darwin
    • In science one tries to tell people, in such a way as to be understood by everyone, something that no one ever knew before. But in poetry, it's the exact opposite.
