Text Quotes
No science is immune to the infection of politics and the corruption of power  (Jacob Bronowski Quotes) Certainty ends inquiry  (Jacob Bronowski Quotes) Man masters nature not by force, but by understanding  (Jacob Bronowski Quotes) Has there ever been a society which has died of dissent? Several have died of conformity in our lifetime  (Jacob Bronowski Quotes) Einstein was a man who could ask immensely simple questions. And what his work showed is that when the answers are simple too, then you can hear God thinking  (Jacob Bronowski Quotes) Science has nothing to be ashamed of even in the ruins of Nagasaki. The shame is theirs who appeal to other values than the human imaginative values which science has evolved  (Jacob Bronowski Quotes) Nature has not fitted man to any specific environment  (Jacob Bronowski Quotes) The symbol and the metaphor are as necessary to science as to poetry  (Jacob Bronowski Quotes) Science is a tribute to what we can know, although we are fallible  (Jacob Bronowski Quotes) A genius is a man who has two great ideas  (Jacob Bronowski Quotes) The most powerful drive in the ascent of man is his pleasure in his own skill. He loves to do what he does well. And having done it well, he loves to do it better.  (Jacob Bronowski Quotes) Every judgment in science stands on the edge of error, and is personal  (Jacob Bronowski Quotes) There must be something unique about man because otherwise, evidently, the ducks would be lecturing about Konrad Lorenz, and the rats would be writing papers about B. F. Skinner  (Jacob Bronowski Quotes) The men who made the Industrial Revolution are usually pictured as hardfaced businessmen with no other motive than self-interest. That is certainly wrong. For one thing, many of them were inventors who had come into business that way  (Jacob Bronowski Quotes) We have to understand that the world can only be grasped by action, not by contemplation. The hand is more important than the eye ... The hand is the cutting edge of the mind.  (Jacob Bronowski Quotes) I set out to show that there exists single creative activity,which is displayed alike in the arts and in the sciences.It is wrong to think of science as a mechanical record of facts, and it is wrong to think of the arts as remote and private fancies. What makes each human, what makes them universal, is the stamp of the creative mind.  (Jacob Bronowski Quotes) Nations in their great ages have not been great in art or science, but in art and science  (Jacob Bronowski Quotes) There are two parts to the human dilemma. One is the belief that the end justifies the means. That push-button philosophy, that deliberate deafness to suffering, has become the monster in the war machine. The other is the betrayal of the human spirit: the assertion of dogma that closes the mind, and turns a nation, a civilization, into a regiment of ghosts--obedient ghosts or tortured ghosts  (Jacob Bronowski Quotes) Knowledge is not a loose-leaf notebook of facts. Above all, it is a responsibility for the integrity of what we are, primarily of what we are as ethical creatures  (Jacob Bronowski Quotes) There is a social injunction implied in the positivist and analyst methods. This social axiom is that :;:;:;:;:;:; We OUGHT to act in such a way that what IS true can be verified to be so  (Jacob Bronowski Quotes) The discoveries of science, the works of art are explorations-more, are explosions, of a hidden likeness. The discoverer or artist presents in them two aspects of nature and fuses them into one. This is the act of creation, in which an original thought is born, and it is the same act in original science and original art  (Jacob Bronowski Quotes) When Coleridge tried to define beauty, he returned always to one deep thought; beauty, he said, is unity in variety! Science is nothing else than the search to discover unity in the wild variety of nature,-or, more exactly, in the variety of our experience. Poetry, painting, the arts are the same search, in Coleridge’s phrase, for unity in variety  (Jacob Bronowski Quotes) This is the concentration camp and crematorium at Auschwitz. This is where people were turned into numbers. Into this pond were flushed the ashes of some four million people. And that was not done by gas. It was done by arrogance. It was done by dogma. It was done by ignorance. When people believe that they have absolute knowledge, with no test in reality, this is how they behave  (Jacob Bronowski Quotes) Who has not hoped To outrage an enemy’s dignity? Who has not been swept By the wish to hurt? and who has not thought that the impersonal world Deserves no better than to be destroyed By one fabulous sign of his displeasure?  (Jacob Bronowski Quotes) Sex was invented as a biological instrument by (say) the green algae. But as an instrument in the ascent of man which is basic to his cultural evolution, it was invented by man himself  (Jacob Bronowski Quotes) Revolutions are not made by fate but by men  (Jacob Bronowski Quotes) The human baby, the human being, is a mosaic of animal and angel  (Jacob Bronowski Quotes) The world can only be grasped by action, not by contemplation  (Jacob Bronowski Quotes) The hand is the cutting edge of the mind  (Jacob Bronowski Quotes) It is a mistake to think of creative activity as something unusual  (Jacob Bronowski Quotes)
