Famous quotes containing the words science and, science and/or technology:

    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)

    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)

    If we had a reliable way to label our toys good and bad, it would be easy to regulate technology wisely. But we can rarely see far enough ahead to know which road leads to damnation. Whoever concerns himself with big technology, either to push it forward or to stop it, is gambling in human lives.
    Freeman Dyson (b. 1923)
