    Remarks about science

    The saddest aspect of life right now is that science gathers knowledge faster than society gathers wisdom.
    Isaac Asimov

    Speculation is perfectly all right, but if you stay there you've only founded a superstition. If you test it, you've started a science.
    Hal Clement

    Science is a way of thinking much more than it is a body of knowledge.
    Carl Sagan

    There had appeared a few stories in science fiction that dealt with alternate Earths, but it was just coincidence.
    Julius Schwartz

    Science is realism - eliminating wishful thinking. If you can't do that, you can't begin. You'll never know what truth is.
    James P. Hogan

    Great quotes so far. Keep 'em coming.

    I have one that Lily Tomlin said, but it was in a play (don't know which one), so it can't be attributed to her:

    "We're all just time-sharing atoms."

    I have a little plaque on my wall that reads.........
    Raising kids is like being pecked to death by a chicken.
    (I have 4 children)

    I also have a favorite response that I learned from my Dad. When my children tell me I "Have" to do something for them, I quote my Dad and tell them "All I "Have" to do is pay taxes and die."
    I do not know where he got it, but it shuts the kids up right away.

    I tell my daughter this one, which I think I found on these boards a while ago: "Your clothes should be tight enough to show you're a woman, but loose enough to show you're a lady".

    "Don't advertise what ain't for sale"

    Don't try to teach table manners to a pig, it only frustrates you and annoys the pig.

    See one, do one, teach one. (I'm new to the ED, and have heard this a million times. So true!).

    To raise your children the way you think they should go, travel that way yourself once in a while

    "life is not measured by the breaths we take, but by the moments that takes our breath away." [/b]

    i love this one!!

    others that i like:

    success is a journey, not a destination.

    follow your dreams, for as you dream, so you shall become.

    do not follow where a path may lead. go instead, where there is no path and leave a trail.

    the pessimist sees difficulty in every opportunity. the optimist sees opportunity in every difficulty.

    the biggest mistake you can make is to be afraid of making one.

    learn to laugh at yourself.

    stretch outside of your comfort zone.

    work smarter, not harder.

    make your mistakes. learn from them. move on.

    live with passion.

    when it isn't working, be willing to change.
    when it isn't broken, don't fix it.
    when it doesn't feel right, be brave and rest it.
    that if it were easy, everyone could do it.

    life's circumstances are not always controlleable, but your attitude toward them is.

    trust your instincts.

    today, i smilied, and all at once things didn't look so bad. today, i shared with someone else, a bit of hope i had. today, i sang a little song, and felt my heart grow light, and walked a happy little mile, with not a cloud in sight. today, i worked with what i had, and longed for nothing more, and what had seemed like only weeds were flowers at my door. today, i loved a little more, complained a little less, and in the giving of myself... forgot my weariness

    "Life should not be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in an attractive and well-preserved body - but rather to skid in sideways, champagne in one hand, strawberries in the other, body thoroughly used up, totally worn out and screaming, 'Woo hoo - what a ride!'"

    "We, the unwilling, led by the unknowing, are doing the impossible for the
    ungrateful. We have done so much, for so long, with so little, we are now
    qualified to do anything with nothing." - Mother Teresa
