Famous quotes containing the words department of, science, department and/or computer:

    I believe in women; and in their right to their own best possibilities in every department of life. I believe that the methods of dress practiced among women are a marked hindrance to the realization of these possibilities, and should be scorned or persuaded out of society.
    Elizabeth Stuart Phelps (1844–1911)

    Science is built up with facts, as a house is with stones. But a collection of facts is no more a science than a heap of stones is a house.
    Jules Henri Poincare (1854–1912)

    All his works might well enough be embraced under the title of one of them, a good specimen brick, “On Heroes, Hero-Worship, and the Heroic in History.” Of this department he is the Chief Professor in the World’s University, and even leaves Plutarch behind.
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)

    Family life is not a computer program that runs on its own; it needs continual input from everyone.
