William Irvine

” A dog might as well speculate on the mind of man, as man on the mind of the Creator.”

Apes, Angels and Victorians



Thomas Henry Huxley

“To a person uninstructed in natural history (science),his country or seaside stroll is a walk through a gallery filled with wonderful works of art, nine tenths of which have their faces turned to the wall. Teach them something of natural history, and you place them in his hands a catalog of those which are with turning around.”



Karl Kraus

“Stupidity is an elemental force for which no earthquake is a match.”



Virginia Woolf

“A common reader differs from the critic and the scholar. He is worse educated, and nature has not gifted him so generously. He reads for his own pleasure rather than to impart knowledge or correct the opinions of others. Above all, he is guided by an instinct to create himself out of whatever odds and ends he can come by and some by the whole.”



Massimo Pigliucci author of Nonsense on Stilts

“You can’t learn science from the movies.”
I wish more people would realize this.



Carl Sagan

But the fact fact that some geniuses were laughed at does not imply that all who are laughed at are geniuses. They laughed at Columbus, they laughed at Fulton,they laughed at the Wright brothers. But they also laughed at Bozo the Clown.



Aristotle

Melancholy men, of all others, are the most witty.



Cicero

“A responsible farmer will plant trees, even though he’ll never yet see them bear a single olive. Won’t a great man plant laws, practices, a commonwealth?”



Marcus Tullius Cicero

Failure to compromise is not a sign of strength, but of weakness



Karl Jaspers

How a man responds to failure determines who he will become.
