If you cannot measure it, then it is not science.
      - William Thomson, Lord Kelvin (1st Baron Kelvin),
        a paraphrase of his lecture given May 3, 1883

Our science, so called, is always more barren and mixed with error than our sympathies.
      - Henry David Thoreau

In all science error precedes the truth, and it is better it should go first than last.
      - Horace (Horatio) Walpole, 4th Earl of Orford

Holding then to science with one hand--the left hand--we give the right hand to religion, and cry: "Open Thou mine eyes, that I may behold wondrous things, more wondrous than the shining worlds can tell." Obedient to the promise, religion does awaken faculties within us, does teach our eyes to the beholding of more wonderful things. Those great worlds blazing like suns die like feeble stars in the glory of the morning, in the presence of this new light. The soul knows that an infinite sea of love is all about it, throbbing through it, everlasting arms of affection lift it, and it bathes itself in the clear consciousness of a Father's love.
      - Henry White Warren

But beyond the bright searchlights of science,
  Out of sight of the windows of sense,
    Old riddles still bid us defiance,
      Old questions of Why and of Whence.
      - Sir William Cecil Dampier Whetham,
        Recent Development of Physical Science
         (p. 10)

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.
      - Alfred North Whitehead,
        Science and the Modern World,
        said about the birth of modern science

There is only one nature--the division into science and engineering is a human imposition, not a natural one. Indeed, the division is a human failure; it reflects our limited capacity to comprehend the whole.
      - Bill Wulf
