notable quotes about science

W. H. Auden

Science is a wonderful thing if one does not have to earn one’s living at it.
Albert Einstein

We live in a society exquisitely dependent on science and technology, in which hardly anyone knows anything about science and technology.
Carl Sagan

The universe is not required to be in perfect harmony with human ambition.
Carl Sagan
