„They're not going to teach science at all. What they do is take the science students down to the lake, tie them in burlap sacks and throw them in. If God thinks they're good science students, they float.“

„Science Ph.D. students have effectively become serfs.“

—  James D. Watson American molecular biologist, geneticist, and zoologist. 1928

"Dr. James Watson Follows His Own Advice" in Seattlest (28 September 2007) http://seattlest.com/2007/09/28/dr_watsoncontro_2.php
Contexto: Science Ph. D. students have effectively become serfs. And who would become a serf when you can work for Goldman Sachs and get paid $300,000 a year to become a serf? Why drive a Chevy when you can drive a BMW — and now you're condemned to driving a car from Malaysia or something. Life should be fun.

„A little science estranges men from God, but much science leads them back to Him.“

—  Louis Pasteur French chemist and microbiologist 1822 - 1895

This alleged quotation is attributed to Pasteur at least as early as 1952, in Miracles, by Morvan Lebesque. It appears in a letter about Pasteur reprinted in the February 7, 1920 issue of America magazine, but the author of the letter attributes the saying to Pascal and says it applies to Pasteur. It may be a paraphrase of Francis Bacon, in "On Atheism" in Essays (1597): A little Philosophy inclineth Mans Minde to Atheisme; But depth in Philosophy, bringeth Mens Mindes about to Religion.

„Well, I don't think there are any methodological conflicts either. As for those social conflicts, those aren't conflicts—in my opinion—between science and religion. They're conflicts between Christians and atheists or Christians and secularists: Christians want to do things one way, secularists want to do things another way. But that's not a science/religion conflict at all. You might as well say it's a science/secularism conflict. In each case, each group wants to do science and then use it in a certain way.“

—  Alvin Plantinga American Christian philosopher 1932

Posed question: Are you mainly trying to show that there's no logical conflict even though there might be a methodological conflict?

„I think the hardest thing to teach a student is that what he or she puts down on paper is changeable.“

—  M. H. Abrams American literary theorist 1912 - 2015

People's Education interview (2007)
Contexto: I think the hardest thing to teach a student is that what he or she puts down on paper is changeable. It’s not the final thing, it’s the first thing, which may just be the suggestive, vague identification of something that you have to come back to and rewrite. At first, students tend to freeze at the first effort. The breakthrough comes when they realize that they can make it better — can identify what their purposes were and realize better ways to achieve those purposes. That is the important thing in teaching students to write: not to be frozen in their first effort.
