Famous quotes containing the words engineering and/or science:

    Mining today is an affair of mathematics, of finance, of the latest in engineering skill. Cautious men behind polished desks in San Francisco figure out in advance the amount of metal to a cubic yard, the number of yards washed a day, the cost of each operation. They have no need of grubstakes.
    Merle Colby, U.S. public relief program (1935-1943)

    Art is the beautiful way of doing things. Science is the effective way of doing things. Business is the economic way of doing things.
    Elbert Hubbard (1856–1915)
