Famous quotes containing the word science:

    The essence of acting is the conveyance of truth through the medium of the actor’s mind and person. The science of acting deals with the perfecting of that medium.
    Minnie Maddern Fiske (1865–1932)

    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)

    When science drove the gods out of nature, they took refuge in poetry and the porticos of civic buildings.
    Mason Cooley (b. 1927)
