Who is roger gould?

Famous quotes containing the words roger gould, roger and/or gould:

    [As teenager], the trauma of near-misses and almost- consequences usually brings us to our senses. We finally come down someplace between our parents’ safety advice, which underestimates our ability, and our own unreasonable disregard for safety, which is our childlike wish for invulnerability. Our definition of acceptable risk becomes a product of our own experience.
    Roger Gould (20th century)

    I say that Roger Casement
    Did what he had to do,
    He died upon the gallows
    But that is nothing new.
    William Butler Yeats (1865–1939)

    Science is an integral part of culture. It’s not this foreign thing, done by an arcane priesthood. It’s one of the glories of the human intellectual tradition.
    —Stephen Jay Gould (b. 1941)
