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

    The sweetest and most inoffensive path of life leads through the avenues of science and learning; and whoever can either remove any obstructions in this way, or open up any new prospect, ought so far to be esteemed a benefactor to mankind.
    David Hume (1711–1776)

    One science only will one genius fit;
    So vast is art, so narrow human wit.
    Alexander Pope (1688–1744)

    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)
