For me, it is far better to grasp the Universe as it really is than to persist in delusion, however satisfying and reassuring.

Science predicts that many different kinds of universe will be spontaneously created out of nothing. It is a matter of chance which we are in.

Science is not an illusion. Illusion would be the belief that we can get the impossible from somewhere else.

Wisdom alone is the science of other sciences.

All writers are going to have to learn more about science, because it's such an interesting part of their environment.

As a humanist, I love science. I hate superstition, which could never have given us a-bombs.

To me there has never been a higher source of earthly honor or distinction than that connected with advances in science.

Science may have found a cure for most evils; but it has found no remedy for the worst of them all - the apathy of human beings.

Adornment, what a science! Beauty, what a weapon! Modesty, what elegance!
