Famous quotes containing the words fiction, killed and/or science:

    Given that external reality is a fiction, the writer’s role is almost superfluous. He does not need to invent the fiction because it is already there.
    —J.G. (James Graham)

    Planted deeper than roots,
    This chiselled, flung-up faith
    Runs and leaps against the sky,
    A prayer killed into stone....
    Philip Larkin (1922–1986)

    “What we know, is a point to what we do not know.” Open any recent journal of science, and weigh the problems suggested concerning Light, Heat, Electricity, Magnetism, Physiology, Geology, and judge whether the interest of natural science is likely to be soon exhausted.
    Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803–1882)
