The way in which the persecution of Galileo has been remembered is a tribute to the quiet commencement of the most intimate change in outlook which the human race had yet encountered. Since a babe was born in a manger, it may be doubted whether so great a thing has happened with so little stir.
      - Science and the Modern World,
        said about the birth of modern science
        [Science]

It requires a very unusual mind to undertake the analysis of the obvious.
      - Science and the Modern World (ch. 1)
        [Investigation]

We cannot think and act afterwards. From the moment of birth we are immersed in action, and can only fitfully guide it by taking thought.
      - Science and the Modern World (ch. 12)
        [Action : Thought]

If you have had your attention directed to the novelties in thought in your own lifetime, you will have observed that almost all really new ideas have a certain aspect of foolishness when they are first produced, and almost any idea which jogs you out of your current abstractions may be better than nothing.
      - Science and the Modern World (ch. 3)
        [Ideas : Novelty]
