David Graveney

Science is organized knowledge.
Herbert Spencer

There are many hypotheses in science which are wrong. That's perfectly all right; they're the aperture to finding out what's right. Science is a self-correcting process. To be accepted, new ideas must survive the most rigorous standards of evidence and scrutiny.
Carl Sagan

The law is a sort of hocus-pocus science, that smiles in yeer face while it picks yeer pocket: and the glorious uncertainty of it is of mair use to the professors than the justice of it.
Charles Macklin

After a certain high level of technical skill is achieved, science and art tend to coalesce in esthetics, plasticity, and form

Linda Godwin

Scientific work must not be considered from the point of view of the direct usefulness of it. It must be done for itself, for the beauty of science, and then there is always the chance that a scientific discovery may become like the radium, a benefit
Marie Curie

Cheerfulness is full of significance; it suggests good health, a clear conscience, and a soul at peace with all human nature
Charles Kingsley

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

We cannot assume the injustice of any actions which only create offense, and especially as regards religion and morals. He who utters or does anything to wound the conscience and moral sense of others, may indeed act immorally; but, so long as he is not guilty of being importunate, he violates no right.
Karl Wilhelm Von Humboldt

A "just war" is hospitable to every self-deception on the part of those waging it, none more than the certainty of virtue, under whose shelter every abomination can be committed with a clear conscience.

The popularity of the paranormal, oddly enough, might even be grounds for encouragement. I think that the appetite for mystery, the enthusiasm for that which we do not understand, is healthy and to be fostered. It is the same appetite which drives the best of true science, and it is an appetite which true science is best qualified to satisfy
Richard Dawkins

I cannot and will not cut my conscience to fit this year's fashions.
Lillian Hellman

A man's moral conscience is the curse he had to accept from the gods in order to gain from them the right to dream.
William Faulkner

Literature is made upon any occasion that a challenge is put to the legal apparatus by conscience in touch with humanity.

Archaeology is the peeping Tom of the sciences. It is the sandbox of men who care not where they are going; they merely want to know where everyone else has been.
Jim Bishop

I was a science fiction junkie for a long time.
William Hurt

Man is the interpreter of nature, science the right interpretation. (Philosophy of the Inductive Sciences, 1840)

Thomas Szasz

Bachelors have consciences, married men have wives.
Samuel Johnson

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

Science is nothing more than a method of inquiry. The method says an assertion is valid and merits universal acceptance only if it can be independently verified. The impersonal rigor of the method means it is utterly apolitical. A truth in science is verifiable whether you are black or white, male or female, old or young. It's verifiable whether you like the results of a study, or you don't
Michael Crichton

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

Nobody climbs mountains for scientific reasons. Science is used to raise money for the expeditions, but you really climb for the hell of it.
Edmund Hillary

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

Common sense is science exactly so far as it fulfils the ideal of common sense; that is, sees facts as they are or at any rate without the distortion of prejudice, and reasons from them in accordance with the dictates of sound judgment
Thomas Huxley

Conscience is the inner voice that warns us somebody may be looking.
Henry L Mencken

Adam Smith

One thinks of French philosophy that it aspires to the condition of literature or the condition of art, and that English and American philosophy aspires to the condition of science. French philosophy, one thinks of as picking up an idea and running with it, posibility into a nearby brick wall or over a local cliff, or something like that.
Ted Honderich
