My Favorite Quotes  

“The truth is that promoting science isn’t just about providing resources—it’s about protecting free and open
inquiry. It’s about ensuring that facts and evidence are never twisted or obscured by politics or
ideology."
President Obama (Radio address on Dec20, 2008)

"To be conscious that you are ignorant of the facts is a great step to knowledge."
Benjamin Disraeli, 1804-1881

"Knowledge is of two kinds; we know a subject ourselves or we know where we can get information upon it."
Samuel Johnson, 1709-1784

"The essence of knowledge is, having it, to apply it."
Confucius, 551-479BC

"Science cannot exist in secrecy."
Dr. Joseph Rotblat, Nobel Laureate (The New York Times, May 21, 1996, p.C1)
