Carl Sagan

Alfred Lord Tennyson

In science one tries to tell people, in such a way as to be understood by everyone, something that no one ever knew before. But in poetry, it's the exact opposite.

Richard Feynman

Advertising may be described as the science of arresting human intelligence long enough to get money from it.

Sydney Smith

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

We cannot assume the injustice of any actions which only create offense, and especially as regards religion and morals.

Karl Wilhelm Von Humboldt

Jealousy is never satisfied with anything short of an omniscience that would detect the subtlest fold of the heart.

TOMB, n. The House of Indifference. Tombs are now by common consent invested with a certain sanctity, but when they have been long tenanted it is considered no sin to break them open and rifle them, the famous Egyptologist, Dr. Huggyns, explaining that a tomb may be innocently "glened" as soon as its occupant is done "smellynge," the soul being then all exhaled. This reasonable view is now generally accepted by archaeologists, whereby the noble science of Curiosity has been greatly dignified.
Ambrose Bierce

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

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...

Science and technology multiply around us. To an increasing extent they dictate the languages in which we speak and think. Either we use those languages, or we remain mute.
J G Ballard
