Famous quotes containing the word science:

    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)

    We receive the truths of science by compulsion. Nothing but ignorance is able to resist them.
    Chauncey Wright (1830–1875)
