„The only people who have the long view are some scientists and some science fiction writers. I have always lived in a world in which I'm just a spot in history.“

—  Sheri S. Tepper American fiction writer 1929 - 2016

Locus interview (1998)
Contexto: The only people who have the long view are some scientists and some science fiction writers. I have always lived in a world in which I'm just a spot in history. My life is not the important point. I'm just part of the continuum, and that continuum, to me, is a marvelous thing. The history of life, and the history of the planet, should go on and on and on and on. I cannot conceive of anything in the universe that has more meaning than that.

„Throw yourself into the stream of the world's good tendency and you will feel the force of the current and the direction in which it is setting.“

—  Felix Adler German American professor of political and social ethics, rationalist, and lecturer 1851 - 1933

Founding Address (1876), Life and Destiny (1913)
Contexto: It is not possible to enter into the nature of the Good by standing aloof from it — by merely speculating upon it. Act the Good, and you will believe in it. Throw yourself into the stream of the world's good tendency and you will feel the force of the current and the direction in which it is setting. The conviction that the world is moving toward great ends of progress will come surely to him who is himself engaged in the work of progress.
By ceaseless efforts to live the good life we maintain our moral sanity. Not from without, but from within, flow the divine waters that renew the soul.

„Great art is never extreme. Criticism moves in a false direction, as does art, when it aspires to be a social science... In this world modern artists form a kind of spiritual underground.“

„Scientific progress has led philosophers to turn their attention from the explanation of physical phenomena, abandoned to science, in order to direct it towards the problem of being itself.“

—  Pierre Hadot French historian and philosopher 1922 - 2010

Les progrès scientifiques ont amené les philosophes à détourner leur attention de l’explication des phénomènes physiques, abandonnée désormais à la science, pour la diriger vers le problème de l’être lui-même.

„Science is voiceless; it is the scientists who talk.“

—  Simone Weil French philosopher, Christian mystic, and social activist 1909 - 1943

“Reflections on quantum theory,” p. 57
On Science, Necessity, and the Love of God (1968)
Contexto: "Science affirms that..." Science is voiceless; it is the scientists who talk.

„Science teachers have a special responsibility to study the nature of science as a discipline, how it works, how it is described by sociologists, historians, and philosophers from different points of view…. Science education cannot just be about learning science: Its foundation must be learning about the nature of science as a human activity.“

—  Jay Lemke American academic 1946
