Natural science quote Be patient with yourself, nothing in nature blooms all year.

Be patient with yourself, nothing in nature blooms all year.

Psychology, as the behaviorist views it, is a purely objective, experimental branch of natural science which needs introspection as little as do the sciences of chemistry and physics.... The position is taken here that the behavior of man and the behavior of animals must be considered in the same plane.

The more I study nature, the more I stand amazed at the work of the Creator.

Science brings men nearer to God.

Natural science quote The axe forgets what the tree remembers.

The axe forgets what the tree remembers.

The truth is, the Science of Nature has been already too long made only a work of the Brain and the Fancy: It is now high time that it should return to the plainness and soundness of Observations on material and obvious things.

Science and religion are not antagonists.

On the contrary, they are sisters. While science tries to learn more about the creation, religion tries to better understand the Creator. While through science man tries to harness the forces of nature around him, through religion he tries to harness the force of nature within him.

If A is a success in life, then A equals x plus y plus z.

Work is x; y is play; and z is keeping your mouth shut

Natural science quote In every walk with the nature one receives far more than he seeks.

I am among those who think that science has great beauty.

A scientist in his laboratory is not only a technician: he is also a child placed before natural phenomena which impress him like a fairy tale. We should not allow it to be believed that all scientific progress can be reduced to mechanisms, machines, gearings, even though such machinery has its own beauty.

Science makes people reach selflessly for truth and objectivity;

it teaches people to accept reality, with wonder and admiration, not to mention the deep awe and joy that the natural order of things brings to the true scientist.

The other animals humans eat, use in science, hunt, trap, and exploit in a variety of ways, have a life of their own that is of importance to them apart from their utility to us. They are not only in the world, they are aware of it. What happens to them matters to them. Each has a life that fares better or worse for the one whose life it is.

To be whole. To be complete. Wildness reminds us what it means to be human, what we are connected to rather than what we are separate from.

Natural science quote I think people who vibrate at the same frequency, vibrate toward each other. The

I think people who vibrate at the same frequency, vibrate toward each other. They call it, in science, sympathetic vibrations.

Hermeticism is the science of nature hidden in the hieroglyphics and symbols of the ancient world.

Do there exist many worlds, or is there but a single world? This is one of the most noble and exalted questions in the study of Nature.

The chief difficulty which prevents men of science from believing in divine as well as in nature Spirits is their materialism.

Natural science quote We often forget that we are nature. Nature is not something separate from us. So

We often forget that we are nature. Nature is not something separate from us. So when we say that we have lost our connection to nature, we have lost our connection to ourselves.

Natural science does not consist in ratifying what others have said, but in seeking the causes of phenomena.

It is still open to question whether psychology is a natural science, or whether it can be regarded as a science at all.

I love science, and it pains me to think that so many are terrified of the subject or feel that choosing science means you cannot also choose compassion, or the arts, or be awed by nature. Science is not meant to cure us of mystery, but to reinvent and reinvigorate it.

Natural science quote Be still, and the earth will speak to you.

Be still, and the earth will speak to you.

The natural history of science is the study of the unknown.

If you fear it you're not going to study it and you're not going to make any progress.

All the effects of Nature are only the mathematical consequences of a small number of immutable laws.

To learn more about science, turn off your electronic device and go outside and look around a bit. Nature is calling you. Go on. The internet will still be here.

Natural science quote Youth is the gift of nature, but age is a work of art.

Youth is the gift of nature, but age is a work of art.

Why is geometry often described as cold and dry? One reason lies in its inability to describe the shape of a cloud, a mountain, a coastline or a tree.

Evolutionary psychology is one of four sciences that are bringing human nature back into the picture.

The harmony of the world is made manifest in Form and Number, and the heart and soul and all the poetry of Natural Philosophy are embodied in the concept of mathematical beauty.

Mathematics is the queen of sciences and number theory is the queen of mathematics. She often condescends to render service to astronomy and other natural sciences, but in all relations she is entitled to the first rank.

The existence of these patterns [fractals] challenges us to study forms that Euclid leaves aside as being formless, to investigate the morphology of the amorphous. Mathematicians have disdained this challenge, however, and have increasingly chosen to flee from nature by devising theories unrelated to anything we can see or feel.

If we suppose that many natural phenomena are in effect computations, the study of computer science can tell us about the kinds of natural phenomena that can occur.
