Famous quotes containing the word science:

    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)

    The conscience of the world is so guilty that it always assumes that people who investigate heresies must be heretics; just as if a doctor who studies leprosy must be a leper. Indeed, it is only recently that science has been allowed to study anything without reproach.
    Aleister Crowley (1875–1947)

    There are two kinds of truth; the truth that lights the way and the truth that warms the heart. The first of these is science, and the second is art.... Without art science would be as useless as a pair of high forceps in the hands of a plumber. Without science art would become a crude mess of folklore and emotional quackery.
    Raymond Chandler (1888–1959)
