31 Science Quotes from Literature

Science is made up of so many things that appear obvious after they are explained. ~ Dune by Frank Herbert "The study of Nature makes a man at last as remorseless as Nature." ~ The Island of Doctor Moreau by H. G. Wells "That is the only way I ever heard of true research going. I asked a question, devised some method of obtaining an answer, and got a fresh question. Was this possible or that possible? You cannot imagine what this means to an investigator, what an intellectual passion grows upon him! You cannot imagine the strange, colourless delight of these intellectual desires!" ~ The Island of Doctor Moreau by H. G. Wells I never yet heard of a useless thing that was not ground out of existence by evolution sooner or later. ~ The Island of Doctor Moreau by H. G. Wells "The world is devoted to physical science, because it believes these discoveries will increase its capacity of luxury and self-indulgence. But the pursuit of science leads only to the insoluble." ~ Lothair by Benjamin Disraeli I do think that, of all the silly, irritating tomfoolishness by which we are plagued, this "weather-forecast" fraud is about the most aggravating. It "forecasts" precisely what happened yesterday or the day before, and precisely the opposite of what is going to happen today. ~ Three Men in a Boat by Jerome K. Jerome "Romance should never begin with sentiment. It should begin with science and end with a settlement." ~ An Ideal Husband by Oscar Wilde "But science, like the spear of Achilles, can cure the wounds which herself inflicts." ~ The Disentanglers by Andrew Lang "The charlatan is always the pioneer. From the astrologer came the astronomer, from the alchemist the chemist, from the mesmerist the experimental psychologist. The quack of yesterday is the professor of tomorrow." ~ The Leather Funnel by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle Knowledge--it excites prejudices to call it science--is advancing as irresistibly, as majestically, as remorselessly as the ocean moves in upon the shore. ~ The Poet at the Breakfast Table by Oliver Wendell Holmes, Sr.
