"Whenever science makes a discovery, the devil grabs it while the angels are debating the best way to use it."
"The more I study science, the more I believe in God."
"It has become appallingly obvious that our technology has exceeded our humanity."
"Science without religion is lame, religion without science is blind."
"If we knew what it was we were doing, it would not be called research, would it?"
"No amount of experimentation can ever prove me right; a single experiment can prove me wrong."
"The grand aim of all science is to cover the greatest number of empirical facts by logical deduction from the smallest number of hypotheses or axioms."

"If the solar system was brought about by an accidental collision, then the appearance of organic life on this planet was also an accident, and the whole evolution of Man was an accident too. If so, then all our present thoughts are mere accidents - the accidental by-product of the movement of atoms. And this holds for the thoughts of the materialists and astronomers as well as for anyone else's. But if their thoughts - i.e., of Materialism and Astronomy - are merely accidental by-products, why should we believe them to be true? I see no reason for believing that one accident should be able to give me a correct account of all the other accidents. It's like expecting that the accidental shape taken by the splash when you upset a milk-jug should give you a correct account of how the jug was made and why it was upset."
"Science is the tool of the Western mind and with it more doors can be opened than with bare hands. It is part and parcel of our knowledge and obscures our insight only when it holds that the understanding given by it is the only kind there is."

"I love fools’ experiments. I am always making them."
"A scientific man ought to have no wishes, no affections, -- a mere heart of stone."
"The fact of evolution is the backbone of biology, and biology is thus in the peculiar position of being a science founded on an improved theory, is it then a science or faith?"
