Been Part

Both for my wife and myself, the personal friendships that have grown out of scientific contacts with colleagues from many different countries have been an important part of our lives, and the travels we have made together in connection with the world-wide scientific co-operation have given us rich treasures of experiences.

- Aage Bohr

Need Download

We need to download scientific journals and upload them to file-sharing networks.

- Aaron Swartz

Running Very

I find that nothing but very close and intense application to subjects of a scientific nature now seems at all to keep my imagination from running wild, or to stop up the void which seems to be left in my mind from a want of excitement.

- Ada Lovelace

Expert Imagine

If you imagine your friend is recommending you content on a topic they're an expert on, they can do a really good job of that. They know what you're interested in, they know your personality, they know if you have a scientific type of mind-set or not.

- Adam D'Angelo

Born Poetic

Poetic knowledge is born in the great silence of scientific knowledge.

- Aime Cesaire

Fact Pleasure

I take no pleasure in the fact that the scientific predictions I've relayed to popular audiences turn out to be true.

- Al Gore

Other Bodies

In the mind of the public, the word 'planet' carries a significance lacking in other words used to describe planetary bodies... many members of the public assume that alleged 'non-planets' cease to be interesting enough to warrant scientific exploration.

- Alan Stern

Bit Slightly

I could never call myself an atheist; my parents could, quite happily. I always felt like there was a little bit more out there, and was always into observing the world from a slightly more spiritual, as opposed to scientific, perspective.

- Alex Clare

Creativeness

We shall have to remove everything that strangles artistic and scientific creativeness.

- Alexander Dubcek

Mankind Made

If a psychiatric and scientific inquiry were to be made upon our rulers, mankind would be appalled at the disclosures.

- Alfred Korzybski

Small Evidence

Doctors are human animals. They want to be loved, they are tribal, they instinctually favor stories over scientific evidence, they make mistakes, and even small gifts make them susceptible to being biased. If we took doctors seriously as human animals, we might hurt them - and they might hurt us - a lot less.

- Alice Dreger

Medical Bring

Many medical students, like most American patients, confuse science and technology. They think that what it means to be a scientific doctor is to bring to bear the maximum amount of technology on any given patient. And this makes them dangerous.

- Alice Dreger

Explain About

Many philosophers say it's impossible to explain our conscious experience in scientific, biological terms at all. But that's not exactly true. Scientists have explained why we have certain experiences and not others. It's just that they haven't explained the special features of consciousness that philosophers care about.

- Alison Gopnik

Which Technical

There was the scientific and technical progress which couldn't be predicted by the state.

- Anatoly Chubais

Data Very

Back in the days of Apollo, sending humans to the moon was the only viable way to get the scientific data we wanted. But now, with our computer and robotics technology, there's very little an astronaut can do on Mars that a well-designed rover can't.

- Andy Weir

Success Answer

There is no scientific answer for success. You can't define it. You've simply got to live it and do it.

- Anita Roddick

Evidence Fact

But the fact of the matter is that all scientific evidence would show, based upon what we know about this disease, that muscle cuts - that is, the meat of the animal itself - should not cause any risk to human health.

- Ann Veneman

Development

The discovery of HIV in 1983 and the proof that it was the cause of AIDS in 1984 were the first major scientific breakthroughs that provided a specific target for blood-screening tests and opened the doorway to the development of antiretroviral medications.

- Anthony Fauci

Feel Treatment

There is a growing scientific consensus that animals have emotions and feel pain. This awareness is going to effect change: better treatment of animals in agribusiness, research and our general interaction with them. It will change the way we eat, live and preserve the planet.

- April Gornik

Away Screening

It seemed like my professional life would take a more scientific route. I guess that plan started to become undone when, at the age of 17, I happened upon a screening of Alain Resnais' 'Hiroshima Mon Amour,' and it took my breath away.

- Arnon Goldfinger

Process Living

The scientific perspective of the world, especially the living world, inexorably impresses on us a dynamic picture of the world of entities and structures involved in continuous and incessant change and in process without ceasing.

- Arthur Peacocke

Subject Own

I proceed with the proper subject of this discourse; namely, the further changes in scientific belief, which have occurred within my own recollection, even since the time when I first aspired to authorship, now forty- five years ago.

- Asa Gray

Idea Inference

We may take it to be the accepted idea that the Mosaic books were not handed down to us for our instruction in scientific knowledge, and that it is our duty to ground our scientific beliefs upon observation and inference, unmixed with considerations of a different order.

- Asa Gray

Mere Affections

A scientific man ought to have no wishes, no affections, - a mere heart of stone.

- Charles Darwin

House I Can

We need women who are at the head of a boardroom, like at the head of the White House, at the head of kind of major scientific enterprises so that little girls everywhere can then think, you know what? I can do that, I want to do that, I will do that.

- Chelsea Clinton

Love Myself

I promptly fell in love with scientific research and soon had assigned myself, as a major vocation, the task of elucidating the mechanism of action of the antidiabetic hormone.

- Christian de Duve

Reach Industry

Advances in technology will continue to reach far into every sector of our economy. Future job and economic growth in industry, defense, transportation, agriculture, health care, and life sciences is directly related to scientific advancement.

- Christopher Bond

Religious Need

The modern dilemma is essentially a spiritual one, and every one of its main aspects, moral, political and scientific, brings us back to the need of a religious solution.

- Christopher Dawson

Father Show

My father worked in a scientific lab where he designed and built glass instruments. He was regarded as brilliant at his job and once constructed a human brain in glass just to show off his skills.

- Christopher Fowler

Impossible Part

We live in a time when the words impossible and unsolvable are no longer part of the scientific community's vocabulary. Each day we move closer to trials that will not just minimize the symptoms of disease and injury but eliminate them.

- Christopher Reeve

Trust Financial

Selling drug secrets violates a trust that is fundamental to the integrity of both scientific research and our financial markets.

- Chuck Grassley

Having Most

Opinions differ most when there is least scientific warrant for having any.

- Daisy Bates

Big Means

If the Big Bang is true, that means everything that came out of it, all of the particles, all of us, there is a scientific force that connects it all that we don't really know about.

- Dan Gilbert

Young Own

Psychology, unlike chemistry, unlike algebra, unlike literature, is an owner's manual for your own mind. It's a guide to life. What could be more important than grounding young people in the scientific information that they need to live happy, healthy, productive lives? To have good relationships?

- Daniel Goldstein

Will Use

We can use all the scientific tools, but it will never replace the palate or the talent of the chefs who are in the kitchen.

- Daniel Humm

Fiction Very

There's no doubt that scientific training helps many authors to write better science fiction. And yet, several of the very best were English majors who could not parse a differential equation to save their lives.

- David Brin

About

Modern scientific knowledge appeared piecemeal. Historians wrote about human history; physicists tackled the material world; and biologists studied the world of living organisms. But there were few links between these disciplines, as researchers focused on getting the details right.

- David Christian

Nation Surplus

How in heaven's name can a nation with a $1 trillion surplus threaten so much scientific research so vital to its future?

- David Gergen

End Of The Day

At the end of the day, if there are truly ethical considerations, those have to override scientific considerations.

- David Sainsbury, Baron Sainsbury of Turville

Thought Which

A superstition which pretends to be scientific creates a much greater confusion of thought than one which contents itself with simple popular practices.

- Johan Huizinga

Alive Scam

Roger Revelle died of a heart attack three months after the Cosmos story was printed. Oh, how I wish he were still alive today. He might be able to stop this scientific silliness and end the global warming scam. He might well stand beside me as a global warming denier.

- John Coleman

Damn Him

Sigmund Freud was a novelist with a scientific background. He just didn't know he was a novelist. All those damn psychiatrists after him, they didn't know he was a novelist either.

- John Irving

Different Ways

Even with only two people on board, where maintenance is a large piece of our working day, we still have time to do scientific research. We have to be ready to support those Shuttle visits in a lot of different ways.

- John L. Phillips

Makeup Doing

Unfortunately, I have two facets to my makeup, and that is both scientific and artistic. By doing medicine, I was only answering one of those sides.

- Jonathan LaPaglia

Will Having

And now, without having wearied my friends, I hope, with detailed scientific accounts, theories, or deductions, I will only say that I have endeavoured to tell just the story of the adventure itself.

- Joshua Slocum

Values Entails

Wellbeing is a notion that entails our values about the good life, and questions of values are not ultimately scientific questions.

- Julian Baggini

Data Evidence

The scientific method actually correctly uses the most direct evidence as the most reliable, because that's the way you are least likely to get led astray into dead ends and to misunderstand your data.

- Aubrey de Grey

Communicate

The value of a scientific publication goes beyond this simple benefit, of all relevant information appearing, unambiguously, in one place. It's also a way to communicate your ideas to your scientific peers, and invite them to express an informed view.

- Ben Goldacre

Original Ensure

The NCI scientific programme leaders meet regularly to ensure that we are not ignoring highly original proposals and that we are not creating an unbalanced grant portfolio.

- Harold E. Varmus

Nature Welfare

It is my deliberate opinion that the one essential requisite of human welfare in all ways is scientific knowledge of human nature.

- Harriet Martineau

Education Best

Scientific education is by far the best training for all walks of life because it teaches us how to assess situations critically and react accordingly. It gives us an understanding based on reverence for life-enhancing technologies as well as for life itself.

- Harry Kroto

Why Other

Many think of the sciences as merely a fund of knowledge. Journalists never ask scientists anything other than what the applications are of scientific breakthroughs. Interestingly, I doubt they ever ask a musician, writer, or actor the same question. I wonder why.

- Harry Kroto

Two Critical

In all the years with IBM Research, I have especially appreciated the freedom to pursue the activities I found interesting and greatly enjoyed the stimulus, collegial cooperation, frankness, and intellectual generosity of two scientific communities, namely in superconductivity and critical phenomena.

- Heinrich Rohrer

Jerks Devote

We don't devote enough scientific research to finding a cure for jerks.

- Bill Watterson

Happy Doing

And you realise you're doing a public service in making people happy - as a musician you can give people something a doctor, a lawyer, a politician cannot give them that. It's not scientific. It's spiritual - a good feeling. And although you don't know them personally, the audience are like your friends.

- Billy Ocean

Reason Bring

There is no good scientific reason to bring back an extinct species. Why would one bring them back? To put them in a theme park?

- Hendrik Poinar

Some Bring

From a scientific perspective there is some indication that a nuclear war could deplete the earth's ozone layer or, less likely, could bring on a new Ice Age - but there is no suggestion that either the created order or mankind would be destroyed in the process.

- Herman Kahn

Truth Air

Scientific truth is marvelous, but moral truth is divine and whoever breathes its air and walks by its light has found the lost paradise.

- Horace Mann

Importance Been

Apart from the scientific interest attached to my various journeyings, it has been made clear to me that human needs and aspirations differ little the world over and that no great difficulties arise in one race dealing with another when matters of scientific importance are involved.

- Howard Florey

Through

Many Christians are raised believing that to be true to God's Word means to accept that the universe, Earth, and life were created in six 24-hour days, only a few thousand years ago. Most people lack the theological and scientific tools to think through the implications of this teaching.

- Hugh Ross

Purpose About

The scientific content of Genesis 1-11 holds special significance for me because it revolutionized my thinking and, thus, changed my life's direction. Until I reached my late teens, my singular passion was science, astronomy in particular. My life's purpose was to learn more about the universe; nothing beyond that really interested me.

- Hugh Ross

Fiction Also

Let it be understood, in the first place, that a science fiction story must be an exposition of a scientific theme and it must be also a story.

- Hugo Gernsback

Year Almost

I worked with Stanley Kubrick for almost a year back in 1990, trying to develop the screen story for his project 'Artificial Intelligence,' which is about a robot boy who wishes to become a real boy, a future scientific fairy tale inspired in the myth of Pinocchio.

- Ian Watson

Conscience Been

I have been described by one of my colleagues as a 'militant agnostic' with my tagline, 'I don't know, and neither do you!' I take this hard-line, fence-sitting position because it is the only position consistent with both my scientific ethos and my conscience.

- Brian Schmidt

Career Leading

While a lab director can get done the things that he regards as important, he has the more important job of bringing out the best ideas of the broader scientific community. I learned this early in my career while I was leading the construction of the SPEAR facility.

- Burton Richter

More Director

While a lab Director can get done the things that he regards as important, he has the more important job of bringing out the best ideas of the broader scientific community.

- Burton Richter

Own Bring

Exploring and colonizing Mars can bring us new scientific understanding of climate change, of how planet-wide processes can make a warm and wet world into a barren landscape. By exploring and understanding Mars, we may gain key insights into the past and future of our own world.

- Buzz Aldrin

Made Brightly

It was the late Dr. Mahendra Lal Sircar who, by founding the Indian Association for the Cultivation of Science, made it possible for the scientific aspirations of my early years to continue burning brightly.

- C. V. Raman

Here Buy

I want to have all that scientific information that we're building be used in designing the future so that people who make geographic decisions - and here it's not just land-use planners, but it's everyone: foresters, transportation engineers, people who buy a house - can analyze all of these information layers and design a future.

- Jack Dangermond

Fact Applied

With the observable fact that scientific knowledge makes our lives better when applied with concern for human welfare and environmental protection, there is no question that science and technology can produce abundance so that no one has to go without.

- Jacque Fresco

Say Show

What I have tried to show is that the scientific attitude implies what I call the postulate of objectivity - that is to say, the fundamental postulate that there is no plan, that there is no intention in the universe.

- Jacques Monod

Fiction Other

I don't actually have a one wellspring of inspiration. Though I'm most often inspired while reading - both fiction and nonfiction. I subscribe to National Geographic, Scientific American, Discover, and a slew of other magazines. And it is while reading articles for pleasure and interest that an interesting 'What if?' will pop into my head.

- James Rollins

Think I Think

And I think that what is of concern is that they seem to be bringing skills from the scientific world into the interrogation room in a way that begs a lot of questions about whether it's ethical.

- Jane Mayer

Social Only

Socialism is... not only a way of life, but a certain scientific approach to social and economic problems.

- Jawaharlal Nehru

Next One Day

Scientific knowledge is in perpetual evolution; it finds itself changed from one day to the next.

- Jean Piaget

Science Kind

Scientific knowledge is a kind of discourse.

- Jean-Francois Lyotard

Rule Signals

My first scientific paper in 1961 reported an additivity rule for substituent-induced shifts of proton NMR signals in steroid derivatives.

- Jean-Marie Lehn

See Out

Scientology is not written with disrespect toward God. It doesn't worship something that is evil. It is scientific, mathematical, and spiritual. The black community has to check it out and see what's there. I'm not saying it's for everyone, but you have to take a look.

- Doug E. Fresh

Human Health

Decades of scientific research has proven that carbon pollution is harmful to human health and causes global warming.

- Jeff Merkley

Big Give

Scientific studies about relationships fascinate me, and I devour them hungrily, especially when they give big, fancy-sounding names to everyday experiences.

- Jenna McCarthy

Like Ridicule

It rolls off my back. Ridicule doesn't mean anything - even from people you're supposed to wear knee pads around, like the scientific community.

- Dwight Schultz

Son World

I grew up in a scientific world, the son of a neurosurgeon.

- Eben Alexander

Data Always

The falsification of scientific data or analysis is always a serious matter.

- Ed Markey

Real People

I often say in my speeches, I say, 'It's rare in life that you get a controlled scientific experiment.' 'Cause you can't do controlled scientific experiments with real people, normally.

- Jerrold Nadler

Fighting Air

Fighting in the air is not a sport. It is scientific murder.

- Eddie Rickenbacker

Fact Almost

The best experience that we have on Earth is the fact that we have scientific stations, weathering over stations down in the Antarctic for almost the entire 20th century to learn how to exist in exceedingly hazardous conditions; and the Moon is far more hazardous than Antarctica. At least they have water there.

- Edgar Mitchell

Caught About

We misuse language and talk about the 'ascent' of man. We understand the scientific basis for the interrelatedness of life, but our ego hasn't caught up yet.

- Jill Tarter

Education Whole

It is fortunate that molecular synthesis also serves the utilitarian function of producing quantities of rare or novel substances which satisfy human needs, especially with regard to health, and the scientific function of stimulating research and education throughout the whole discipline of chemistry.

- Elias James Corey

Beauty Simple

Textbook science is beautiful! Textbook science is comprehensible, unlike mere fascinating words that can never be truly beautiful. Elementary science textbooks describe simple theories, and simplicity is the core of scientific beauty. Fascinating words have no power, nor yet any meaning, without the math.

- Eliezer Yudkowsky

Often Despised

Pick any scientific field, and you'll find that those snubbed by their communities, left feeling alone and despised, were often those on the forefront.

- Eliot Schrefer

Far Does

In so far as a scientific statement speaks about reality, it must be falsifiable; and in so far as it is not falsifiable, it does not speak about reality.

- Karl Popper

Been Professor

I have been a Professor Emeritus since 1958, and have continued my scientific studies.

- Karl von Frisch

Vague Other

Honestly, I feel you are poisoned if you read too much of the scientific literature because it makes you start thinking like other people. You're better off having a vague sense of what's going on and making your own way.

- Eric Betzig

Big Role

From Roger Bacon, the 13th century Franciscan who pioneered the scientific method, to George Lemaitre, the 20th century Belgian priest who first developed a mathematical foundation for the 'Big Bang,' people of faith have played a key role in advancing scientific understanding.

- Kenneth R. Miller

Stomach Toronto

My grandmother was a chemist. She worked at the Banting Institute in Toronto, and at 44 she died of stomach cancer. I never met my grandmother, but I carry on her name - her exact name, Eva Vertes - and I like to think I carry on her scientific passion, too.

- Eva Vertes

Point Of View

From a scientific point of view, our mission is to seek answers to the fundamental questions about the universe. Many are open - we don't know about dark matter, which accounts for a quarter of the universe's matter, nor do we know why there's antimatter.

- Fabiola Gianotti

India Global

I want to be remembered as someone who put India on the scientific map of the world in terms of large innovation. I want to be remembered for making a difference to global healthcare. And I want to be remembered as someone who did make a difference to social economic development in India.

- Kiran Mazumdar-Shaw

Give Threatened

I believe God did intend, in giving us intelligence, to give us the opportunity to investigate and appreciate the wonders of His creation. He is not threatened by our scientific adventures.

- Francis Collins

Historical

Jesus walking on water is an allegory, not fluid mechanics. God destroying the cities of Sodom and Gomorrah is a warning, not a historical battle. Doubting Thomas is an example, not a person. The story of Noah, with all of its scientific and historical impossibilities, can be read the same way.

- Kyle Hill

Poison Bill

By calling GMOs 'poison' and 'evil,' Bill Maher poisons the well of reasoned scientific discussion with ideologically driven fear mongering.

- Kyle Hill
