Quote of the Day
Who fears not to do ill fears the name,

Sir John Denham

In science the credit goes to the man who convinces the world, not to the man to whom the idea first occurs.
Sir Francis Darwin

Sport is an international phenomenon, like science or music.
Avery Brundage

The conscience of the world is so guilty that it always assumes that people who investigate heresies must be heretics; just as if a doctor who studies leprosy must be a leper. Indeed, it is only recently that science has been allowed to study anything without reproach.
Aleister Crowley

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

As the blush is the signal of innocence, so is serenity of manner the token of a quiet conscience
Suzanne Curchod Necker

The worst punishment of all is, that in the court of his own conscience no guilty man is acquitted
Juvenal

Thomas Szasz

The conscience of children is formed by the influences that surround them; their notions of good and evil are the result of the moral atmosphere they breathe.
Jean Paul Richter

All religions, arts and sciences are branches of the same tree
Albert Einstein

Science is 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 as far as the guardsman's cut and thrust differ from the manner in which a savage wields his club.
Thomas Huxley

There is actually a fair amount of money being put behind science today.

Ethical systems are completely unlike mathematics or science.
Daniel Dennett

Whereas in The Two Towers you have different races, nations, cultures coming together and examining their conscience and unifying against a very real and terrifying enemy. What the United States has been doing for the past year is bombing innocent civilians without having come anywhere close to catching Osama bin Laden or any presumed enemy.
Viggo Mortensen

The negative cautions of science are never popular. If the experimentalist would not commit himself, the social philosopher, the preacher, and the pedagogue tried the harder to give a short-cut answer.
Margaret Mead

Science is wonderfully equipped to answer the question 'How?' but it gets terribly confused when you ask the question 'Why?'
Erwin Chargaff

Woodrow Wilson

Peace demands the most heroic labor and the most difficult sacrifice. It demands greater heroism than war. It demands greater fidelity to the truth and a much more perfect purity of conscience.
Thomas Merton

I soothe my conscience now with the thought that it is better for hard words to be on paper than that Mummy should carry them in her heart.
Anne Frank

Moral science is better occupied when treating of friendship than of justice.
Sir Thomas Aquinas

Adam Smith

There is only one way to achieve happiness on this terrestrial ball, and that is to have either a clear conscience or none at all.
Ogden Nash

Imagination has always had powers of resurrection that no science can.
Ingrid Bengis

Society lives by faith, and develops by science.
Henri-Frederic Amiel

Galileo Galilei

Chastity is the cement of civilization and progress. Without it there is no stability in society, and without it one cannot attain the Science of Life.
Mary Baker Eddy

While bright-eyed science watches round
Thomas Gray

Science has been seriously retarded by the study of what is not worth knowing and of what is not knowable.
Johann Wolfgang Von Goethe

Man is unique not because he does science, and his is unique not because he does art, but because science and art equally are expressions of his marvelous plasticity of mind.
Jacob Bronowski

To endeavour to domineer over conscience, is to invade the citadel of heaven.
Charles V

It does sound like a science fiction story and I may sound like one of these guys who walks up and down with a sandwich board saying the end of the world is nigh, but the end is nigh...
Lembit Opik

Science without religion is lame, religion without science is blind.
Albert Einstein

A poor relation is the most irrelevant thing in nature, a piece of impertinent correspondence, an odious approximation, a haunting conscience, a preposterous shadow, lengthening in the noon-tide of our prosperity. He is known by his knock.
Charles Lamb

The reason that no computer program can ever be a mind is simply that a computer program is only syntactical, and minds are more than syntactical. Minds are semantical, in the sense that they have more than a formal structure, they have a content. [Minds, Brains and Science]
John Searle

I am aware of the usefulness of science to society and of the benefits society derives from it.

Ted Honderich
