Quotations about science and the scientific method

Isaac Newton – To explain all nature is difficult

Share this quote:
Isaac NewtonTo explain all nature is too difficult a task for any one man or even for any one age. Tis much better to do a little with certainty & leave the rest for others that come after than to explain all things by conjecture without making sure of any thing.

Bertrand Russell – In science the man of real genius

Share this quote:
Bertrand RussellIn science the man of real genius is the man who invents a new method. The notable discoveries are often made by his successors, who can apply the method with fresh vigor, unimpaired by the previous labor of perfecting it; but the mental caliber of the thought required for their work, however brilliant, is not so great as that required by the first inventor of the method.

Bertrand Russell   (1872-1970)

Neil deGrasse Tyson – A New Jersey school teacher asserted that evolution and the big bang are not scientific

Share this quote:
Neil deGrasse TysonPeople cited violation of the First Amendment when a New Jersey school teacher asserted that evolution and the big bang are not scientific and that Noah’s ark carried dinosaurs. This case is not about the need to separate church and state; it’s about the need to separate ignorant, scientifically illiterate people from the ranks of teachers.

Neil deGrasse Tyson   (Oct 5, 1958 -)

Garry Kasparov – A lifetime analyzing the game of chess

Share this quote:
Garry KasparovHaving spent a lifetime analyzing the game of chess and comparing the capacity of computers to the capacity of the human brain, I’ve often wondered, where does our success come from? The answer is synthesis, the ability to combine creativity and calculation, art and science, into a whole that is much greater than the sum of its parts. Chess is a unique cognitive nexus, a place where art and science come together in the human mind, and are then refined and improved by experience.
