Geeky Goodness: The 15 Most Romantic Ideas About Science

Tarringa

We're not just talking about love here. A "Romantic," I believe, is not someone who merely sees himself forever on the hip of another human being; he puts poetry into his work, and into the way he sees the world. Even as a scientist, she can't help but to indulge in hyperbole, and to break off from reason and dance a little in folly. Even the most logical minds can be tinted red with it:

1. "The most exciting phrase to hear in science, the one that heralds new discoveries, is not 'Eureka!' but, 'That's funny ...'" - Isaac Asimov

2. "Science may set limits to knowledge, but should not set limits to imagination." - Bertrand Russel

3. “Somewhere, something incredible is waiting to be known.” - Carl Sagan

4. “Any sufficiently advanced technology is indistinguishable from magic.” - Arthur C. Clarke

5. “Physics is like sex: sure, it may give some practical results, but that's not why we do it.” - Richard P. Feynman

6. “If we all did the things we are capable of, we would astound ourselves.” - Thomas A. Edison

7. "A sense of humor is just common sense dancing.” - Clive James

8. “One, remember to look up at the stars and not down at your feet. Two, never give up work. Work gives you meaning and purpose and life is empty without it. Three, if you are lucky enough to find love, remember it is there and don't throw it away.” - Stephen Hawking

9. “We are a way for the cosmos to know itself.” - Carl Sagan

10. “The human spirit must prevail over technology.” - Albert Einstein

11. “Take chances! Get messy! Make mistakes!” - Joanna Cole

12. “We are all star stuff.” - Carl Sagan (you go, Carl Sagan)

13. “Nature composes some of her loveliest poems for the microscope and the telescope.” - Theodore Roszak

14. “To ride a bicycle is in itself some protection against superstitious fears, since the bicycle is the product of pure reason applied to motion. Geometry at the service of man! Give me two spheres and a straight line and I will show you how far I can take them. Voltaire himself might have invented the bicycle, since it contributes so much to man’s welfare and nothing at all to his bane. Beneficial to the health, it emits no harmful fumes and permits only the most decorous speeds. How can a bicycle ever be an implement of harm?” - Angela Carter (probably the sweetest thing ever said about a man-made object)

15. “She had studied the universe all her life, but had overlooked its clearest message: For small creatures such as we the vastness is bearable only through love.” - Carl Sagan FOR THE WIN.
