Famous quotes containing the word science:

    Today the function of the artist is to bring imagination to science and science to imagination, where they meet, in the myth.
    Cyril Connolly (1903–1974)

    Every known fact in natural science was divined by the presentiment of somebody, before it was actually verified.
    Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803–1882)

    The universe is the externisation of the soul. Wherever the life is, that bursts into appearance around it. Our science is sensual, and therefore superficial. The earth, and the heavenly bodies, physics, and chemistry, we sensually treat, as if they were self-existent; but these are the retinue of that Being we have.
    Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803–1882)
