Science Quotes

  • "Every generation of humans believed it had all the answers it needed, except for a few mysteries they assumed would be solved at any moment. And they all believed their ancestors were simplistic and deluded. What are the odds that you are the first generation of humans who will understand reality?"— Scott Adams (Dilbert)
  • "Nature is trying very hard to make us succeed, but nature does not depend on us. We are not the only experiment."— R. Buckminster Fuller
  • "Isn't it interesting that the same people who laugh at science fiction listen to weather forecasts and economists?"— Kelvin Throop III

  • Science Students: Plan to attend the Undergraduate Research Banquet on April 24! Check your email for details.
