In questions of science, the authority of a thousand is not worth the humble reasoning of a single individual.
      - Galilei Galileo

The thinker makes a great mistake when he asks after cause and effect. They both together make up the invisible phenomenon.
      - Johann Wolfgang von Goethe,
        one of his maxims

Science and art belong to the whole world, and before them vanish the barriers of nationality.
  [Ger., Wissenschaft und Kunst gehoren der Welt an, und vor ihhen verschwinden die Schranken der Nationalitat.]
      - Johann Wolfgang von Goethe,
        In a conversation with a German historian

While bright-eyed science watches round.
      - Thomas Gray, Ode for Music--Chorus (l. 11)

Science is teaching man to know and reverence truth, and to believe that only as far as he knows and loves it can he live worthily on earth, and vindicate the dignity of his spirit.
      - Moses Harvey

We hail science as man's truest friend and noblest helper.
      - Moses Harvey

All that science can achieve is a perfect knowledge and a perfect understanding of the action of natural and moral forces.
      - Hermann Ludwig Ferdinand von Helmholtz

But weightier still are the contentment which comes from work well done, the sense of the value of science for its own sake, insatiable curiosity, and, above all, the pleasure of masterly performance and of the chase. These are the effective forces which move the scientist. The first condition for the progress of science is to bring them into play.
      - Lawrence Joseph Henderson,
        from his preface to Claude Bernard's "Experimental Medicine"

Science is a good piece of furniture for a man to have in an upper chamber, provided he has common sense on the ground floor.
      - Oliver Wendell Holmes, Sr.

Science--in other words, knowledge--is not the enemy of religion; for, if so, then religion would mean ignorance. But it is often the antagonist of school-divinity.
      - Oliver Wendell Holmes, Sr.

Science is the topography of ignorance.
      - Oliver Wendell Holmes, Sr., Medical Essays

The sciences are said, and they are truly said, to have a mutual connection, that any one of them may be the better understood, for an insight into the rest.
      - Samuel Horsley

It is certain that a serious attention to the sciences and liberal arts softens and humanizes the temper, and cherishes those fine emotions in which true virtue and honor consist. It rarely, very rarely happens that a man of taste and learning is not, at least, an honest man, whatever frailties may attend him.
      - David Hume

The sweetest and most inoffensive path of life leads through the avenues of science and learning; and whoever can either remove any obstruction in this way, or open up any new prospect, ought, so far, to be esteemed a benefactor to mankind.
      - David Hume

Steam, that great civilizer.
      - Freeman Hunt

Ecclesiasticism in science is only unfaithfulness to truth.
      - Thomas Henry Huxley

Extinguished theologians lie about the cradle of every science, as the strangled snakes besides that of Hercules.
      - Thomas Henry Huxley

In scientific work, those who refuse to go beyond fact rarely get as far as fact.
      - Thomas Henry Huxley

Science is simply common sense at its best--that is, rigidly accurate in observation, and merciless to fallacy in logic.
      - Thomas Henry Huxley

Science is, I believe, nothing but trained and organized common-sense, differing from the latter only as a veteran may differ from a raw recruit; and its methods differ from those of common-sense only so far as the guardsman's cut and thrust differ from the manner in which a savage wields his club.
      - Thomas Henry Huxley

The birth of science was the death of superstition.
      - Thomas Henry Huxley

Nothing has tended more to retard the advancement of science than the disposition in vulgar minds to vilify what they cannot comprehend.
      - Samuel Johnson (a/k/a Dr. Johnson) ("The Great Cham of Literature")

Science confounds everything; it gives to the flowers an animal appetite, and takes away from even the plants their chastity.
      - Joseph Joubert

What now, dear reader, shall we make of our telescope? Shall we make a Mercury's magic wand to cross the liquid aether with, and like Lucian lead a colony to the uninhabitied evening star, allured by the sweetness of the place?
      - Johannes Kepler

What the scientists have in their briefcases is terrifying.
      - Nikita Khrushchev
