Famous quotes containing the words science, fiction, novels, short, volume, year and/or years:

    The negative cautions of science are never popular. If the experimentalist would not commit himself, the social philosopher, the preacher, and the pedagogue tried the harder to give a short- cut answer.
    Margaret Mead (1901–1978)

    It is with fiction as with religion: it should present another world, and yet one to which we feel the tie.
    Herman Melville (1819–1891)

    The novels are as useful as Bibles, if they teach you the secret, that the best of life is conversation, and the greatest success is confidence, or perfect understanding between sincere people.
    Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803–1882)

    The telephone, which interrupts the most serious conversations and cuts short the most weighty observations, has a romance of its own.
    Virginia Woolf (1882–1941)

    We are too civil to books. For a few golden sentences we will turn over and actually read a volume of four or five hundred pages.
    Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803–1882)

    Like to the time o’ th’ year between the extremes
    Of hot and cold, he was nor sad nor merry.
    William Shakespeare (1564–1616)

    I leave the governor’s office next week, and with it public life ... [which] has been on the whole a pleasant one.

    Rutherford Birchard Hayes (1822–1893)
