Famous quotes containing the words science and/or technology:

    Oh, what does science not conceal today! How much, at any rate, is it meant to conceal!
    Friedrich Nietzsche (1844–1900)

    The real accomplishment of modern science and technology consists in taking ordinary men, informing them narrowly and deeply and then, through appropriate organization, arranging to have their knowledge combined with that of other specialized but equally ordinary men. This dispenses with the need for genius. The resulting performance, though less inspiring, is far more predictable.
    John Kenneth Galbraith (b. 1908)
