Famous quotes containing the words actual, geography, current and/or science:

    I have not read of any Arcadian life which surpasses the actual luxury and serenity of these New England dwellings. For the outward gilding, at least, the age is golden enough.
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)

    Yet America is a poem in our eyes; its ample geography dazzles the imagination, and it will not wait long for metres.
    Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803–1882)

    But human experience is usually paradoxical, that means incongruous with the phrases of current talk or even current philosophy.
    George Eliot [Mary Ann (or Marian)

    There does not exist a category of science to which one can give the name applied science. There are science and the applications of science, bound together as the fruit of the tree which bears it.
    Louis Pasteur (1822–1895)
