Science only goes so far and then comes God.
Mike Teavee: You don’t understand anything about science! First off, there’s a difference between waves and particles! DUH! Second, the amount of power it would take to convert energy into matter would be like nine atomic bombs!
Willy Wonka: MUMBLER! Seriously, I can’t understand a word you’re saying!
Science may never come up with a better office communication system than the coffee break.
Political ideology can corrupt the mind, and science.

We would be in a nasty position indeed if empirical science were the only kind of science possible.
If history and science have taught us anything, it is that passion and desire are not the same as truth.
Pure phenomenology claims to be the science of pure phenomena. This concept of the phenomenon, which was developed under various names as early as the eighteenth century without being clarified, is what we shall have to deal with first of all.
The capacity to be puzzled is the premise of all creation, be it in art or in science.
In a few decades of reconstruction, even the mathematical natural sciences, the ancient archetypes of theoretical perfection, have changed habit completely!

To resort to power one need not be violent, and to speak to conscience one need not be meek. The most effective action both resorts to power and engages conscience.
By any reasonable measure of achievement, the faith of the Enlightenment thinkers in science was justified.
Undeserved praise causes more pangs of conscience later than undeserved blame, but probably only for this reason, that our power of judgment are more completely exposed by being over praised than by being unjustly underestimated.
Blind faith, no matter how passionately expressed, will not suffice. Science for its part will test relentlessly every assumption about the human condition.
