When single thought becomes broader than a book
1. Aerodynamically, the bumblebee shouldn't be able to fly, but the bumblebee doesn't know it so it goes on flying anyway.
-Mary Kay Ash
2. Geologists have a saying - rocks remember.
3. A scientific truth does not triumph by convincing its opponents and making them see the light, but rather because its opponents eventually die and a new generation grows up that is familiar with it.
4. The folly of mistaking a paradox for a discovery, a metaphor for a proof, a torrent of verbiage for a spring of capital truths, and oneself for an oracle, is inborn in us.
5. Art is I; science is we.
6. The universe is made of stories, not of atoms.
7. It is inexcusable for scientists to torture animals; let them make their experiments on journalists and politicians.
8. Natural science does not simply describe and explain nature; it is part of the interplay between nature and ourselves.
9. The science of psychology has been far more successful on the negative than on the positive side... It has revealed to us much about man's shortcomings, his illnesses, his sins, but little about his potentialities, his virtues, his achievable aspirations, or his psychological health.
10. Science is built up of facts, as a house is with stones. But a collection of facts is no more a science than a heap of stones is a house.
