The spending on science and technology needs to be increased.
As we talk with candour, we open the doors to new possibilities and new areas of cooperation in advance in democracy, in combating terrorism, in energy and environment, science and technology and international peacekeeping.
The first time I saw nitroglycerine was at the beginning of the Crimean War. Professor Zinin in St. Petersburg exhibited some to my father and me, and struck some on an anvil to show that only the part touched by the hammer exploded without spreading.
The science of the mind can only have for its proper goal the understanding of human nature by every human being, and through its use, brings peace to every human soul.
Mathematics is pure language – the language of science. It is unique among languages in its ability to provide precise expression for every thought or concept that can be formulated in its terms.
One science only will one genius fit; so vast is art, so narrow human wit.
For the birth of something new, there has to be a happening. Newton saw an apple fall; James Watt watched a kettle boil; Roentgen fogged some photographic plates. And these people knew enough to translate ordinary happenings into something new…
Specialized meaninglessness has come to be regarded, in certain circles, as a kind of hallmark of true science.
Science has explained nothing; the more we know the more fantastic the world becomes and the profounder the surrounding darkness.
God isn’t compatible with machinery and scientific medicine and universal happiness. You must make your choice. Our civilization has chosen machinery and medicine and happiness.
Therefore, the good of man must be the end of the science of politics.
It is the business of the future to be dangerous; and it is among the merits of science that it equips the future for its duties.
A science that hesitates to forget its founders is lost.
The day will come when the man at the telephone will be able to see the distant person to whom he is speaking.
I take no pleasure in the fact that the scientific predictions I’ve relayed to popular audiences turn out to be true.
I like the idea of using all this science and technology to allow our clients to have a deeper insight into the market.
Science has revealed that the human body is made up of millions and millions of atoms… For example, I am made up of 5.8×10 27 atoms.
The clash between science and religion has not shown that religion is false and science is true. It has shown that all systems of definition are relative to various purposes, and that none of them actually “grasp” reality.
That’s the show. It’s like 5 minutes of science and then 10 minutes of me hurting myself.
In the spirit of science, there really is no such thing as a “failed experiment.” Any test that yields valid data is a valid test.
