„It is better to believe in men too rashly, and regret, than believe too meanly. Men could be more than they are, if they would try for it. He has shown them that.“

—  Mary Renault, kniha The Persian Boy

On Alexander the Great, p. 312
Zdroj: The Persian Boy (1972)
Kontext: It is better to believe in men too rashly, and regret, than believe too meanly. Men could be more than they are, if they would try for it. He has shown them that. How many have tried, because of him? Not only those I have seen; there will be men to come. Those who look in mankind only for their own littleness, and make them believe in that, kill more than he ever will in all his wars.

„Mind has come up with this brilliant way of looking at the world — science — but it can’t look at itself. Science has no place for the mind.“

—  Alan Moore English writer primarily known for his work in comic books 1953

De Abaitua interview (1998)
Kontext: Mind has come up with this brilliant way of looking at the world — science — but it can’t look at itself. Science has no place for the mind. The whole of our science is based upon empirical, repeatable experiments. Whereas thought is not in that category, you can’t take thought into a laboratory. The essential fact of our existence, perhaps the only fact of our existence – our own thought and perception is ruled off-side by the science it has invented. Science looks at the universe, doesn’t see itself there, doesn’t see mind there, so you have a world in which mind has no place. We are still no nearer to coming to terms with the actual dynamics of what consciousness is.

„And, before science had caught up with the legend, the legend had swallowed science and everything.“

—  Richard Matheson, kniha I Am Legend

Zdroj: I Am Legend (1954), Ch. 3
Kontext: True, he thought, but no one ever got the chance to know it. Oh, they knew it was something, but it couldn’t be that — not that. That was imagination, that was superstition, there was no such thing as that.
And, before science had caught up with the legend, the legend had swallowed science and everything.

„Where men then are free to consult experience they will correct their practice, and make changes for the better.“

—  Frances Wright American activist 1795 - 1852

Independence Day speech (1828)
Kontext: Where men then are free to consult experience they will correct their practice, and make changes for the better. It follows, therefore, that the more free men are, the more changes they will make. In the beginning, possibly, for the worse; but most certainly in time for the better; until their knowledge enlarging by observation, and their judgment strengthening by exercise, they will find themselves in the straight, broad, fair road of improvement. Out of change, therefore, springs improvement; and the people who shall have imagined a peaceable mode of changing their institutions, hold a surety for their melioration. This surety is worth all other excellences. Better were the prospects of a people under the influence of the worst government who should hold the power of changing it, that those of a people under the best who should hold no such power. Here, then is the great beauty of American government.

Louis Pasteur fotka

„A little science estranges men from God, but much science leads them back to Him.“

—  Louis Pasteur French chemist and microbiologist 1822 - 1895

This alleged quotation is attributed to Pasteur at least as early as 1952, in Miracles, by Morvan Lebesque. It appears in a letter about Pasteur reprinted in the February 7, 1920 issue of America magazine, but the author of the letter attributes the saying to Pascal and says it applies to Pasteur. It may be a paraphrase of Francis Bacon, in "On Atheism" in Essays (1597): A little Philosophy inclineth Mans Minde to Atheisme; But depth in Philosophy, bringeth Mens Mindes about to Religion.

„In truth, men speak too much of danger.“

—  José Martí Poet, writer, Cuban nationalist leader 1853 - 1895

Kontext: In truth, men speak too much of danger. Let others be terrified by the natural and healthy risks of life! We shall not be frightened! Poison sumac grows in a hard-working man's field, the serpent hisses from its hidden den, and the owl's eye shines in the belfry, but the sun goes on lighting the sky, and truth continues marching across the earth unscathed.
