There is no national science just as there is no national multiplication table; what is national is no longer science.
      - Anton Pavlovich Chekhov (Anton Pavlovich Tchehov),
        "Mysli o Nauke Kishinev" by V.P. Ponomarev

Philosophy is true mother of the arts. (Science)
  [Lat., Philosophia vero omnium mater artium.]
      - Cicero (Marcus Tullius Cicero) (often called "Tully" for short),
        Tusculanarum Disputationum (bk. I)

I value science--none can prize it more,
  It gives ten thousand motives to adore:
    Be it religious, as it ought to be,
      The heart it humbles, and it bows the knee.
      - Abraham Coles

To me there never has been a higher source of earthly honor or distinction, than that connected with advances in science. I have not possessed enough of the eagle in my character to make a direct flight to the loftiest altitudes in the social world; and I certainly never endeavored to reach those heights by using the creeping powers of the reptile, who, in ascending, generally chooses the dirtiest path, because it is the easiest.
      - Sir Humphrey Davy

There are very few persons who pursue science with true dignity.
      - Sir Humphrey Davy,
        Consolations in Travel--Dialogue V--The Chemical Philosopher

Science and art are the handmaids of religion.
      - Francois Delsarte

In science one tries to tell people, in such a way as to be understood by everyone, something that no one ever knew before. But in poetry, it's the exact opposite.
      - Paul Adrien Maurice Dirac

Who thinks all science, as all virtue, vain.
      - John Dryden

Every science begins as philosophy and ends as art.
      - William James (Will) Durant

Science gives us knowledge, but only philosophy can give us wisdom.
      - William James (Will) Durant

All our science, measured against reality, is primitive and childlike--and yet it is the most precious thing we have.
      - Albert Einstein

It stands to the everlasting credit of science that by acting on the human mind it has overcome man's insecurity before himself and before nature.
      - Albert Einstein

Science is a wonderful thing if one does not have to earn one's living at it.
      - Albert Einstein

Scientists were rated as great heretics by the church, but they were truly religious men because of their faith in the orderliness of the universe.
      - Albert Einstein

The cosmic religious experience is the strongest and the noblest driving force behind scientific research.
      - Albert Einstein

The grand aim of all science is to cover the greatest number of empirical facts by logical deduction from the smallest number of hypotheses or axioms.
      - Albert Einstein

The whole of science is nothing more than a refinement of everyday thinking.
      - Albert Einstein

Science without religion is lame, religion without science is blind.
      - Albert Einstein,
        Sciencem Philosophy and Religion: a Symposium
         (ch. 13)

Science * * * necessitates a faith commensurate with the grander orbits and universal laws which it discloses. Yet it does not surprise the moral sentiment. That was older, and awaited expectant these larger insights.
      - Ralph Waldo Emerson

Science corrects the old creeds, sweeps away, with every new perception, our infantile catechisms, and necessitates a faith commensurate with the grander orbits and universal laws which it discloses.
      - Ralph Waldo Emerson

Science does not know its debt to imagination.
      - Ralph Waldo Emerson

Science surpasses the old miracles of mythology.
      - Ralph Waldo Emerson

If I could remember the names of all these particles I'd be a botanist.
      - Enrico Fermi

It is true that few unscientific people have this particular type of religious experence. Our poets do not write about it; our artists do not try to portray this remarkable thing. I don't know why. Is no one inspired by our present picture of the universe? The value of science remains unsung by singers; you are reduced to sharing not a song or poem, but an evening lecture about it. This is not yet a scientific age.
      - Richard P. Feynman,
        What Do You Care What Other People Think?

Science is knowledge certain and evident in itself, or by the principles from which it is deducted, or with which it is certainly connected. It is subjective, as existing in the mind; objective, as embodied in truths; speculative, as leading to do something, as in practical science.
      - William Fleming
