#1. Since 1963, LEGO bricks have been manufactured from acrylonitrile-butadiene-styrene copolymer - ABS copolymer for short - a plastic with a matte finish. It is very hard and robust - import criteria for a children's toy. Laboratories in Switzerland and Denmark regularly test the quality of the ABS. The plastic is distributed to factories as granules rather than in liquid form. These grains of plastic are heated up to 232ºC and converted into a molten mass. Injection moulding machines weighing up to 150 tonnes squeeze the viscous plastic mass into the desired injection moulds - of which there are 2,400 varieties. After seven seconds, the brick produced in this way has cooled down enough to be removed from the mould. The injection moulding method is so precise that out of every million elements produced, only about 18 units have to be rejected. Unsold bricks are converted back into granulates and recycled. - Author: Christian Humberg
Materials Science quotes by Christian Humberg
#2. The depressing thing about battery technology is that it gets better, but it gets better slowly. There are a whole bunch of problems in materials science and chemistry that come in trying to make existing batteries better. - Author: Nathan Myhrvold
Materials Science quotes by Nathan Myhrvold
#3. Like a work of art, we exceed our materials. Science needs art to frame the mystery, but art needs science so that not everything is a mystery. Neither truth alone is our solution, for our reality exists in plural - Author: Jonah Lehrer
Materials Science quotes by Jonah Lehrer
#4. Biologically inspired materials could revolutionize materials science. People looking at spider silk and abalone shells are looking for new ways to make materials better, cheaper, and with less toxic byproducts. - Author: Janine Benyus
Materials Science quotes by Janine Benyus
#5. If we are to know ourselves, philosophy needs to maintain an ongoing dialogue with the sciences of mind. - Author: George Lakoff
Materials Science quotes by George Lakoff
#6. Is in vitro fertilization where you have all the fun in a glass house? - Author: Dr Steven Bottomley
Materials Science quotes by Dr Steven Bottomley
#7. Science without respect for human life is degrading to us all and reflects a hollow and deceptive philosophy, a philosophy that we as a people should never condone. - Author: Nathan Deal
Materials Science quotes by Nathan Deal
#8. There is neither religion nor science beyond beauty. - Author: Kahlil Gibran
Materials Science quotes by Kahlil Gibran
#9. It is generally recognized that women are better than men at languages, personal relations and multitasking, but less good at map-reading and spatial awareness. It is therefore not unreasonable to suppose that women might be less good at mathematics and physics. It is not politically correct to say such things ... But it cannot be denied that there are differences between men and women. Of course, these are differences between the averages only. There are wide variations about the mean. - Author: Stephen Hawking
Materials Science quotes by Stephen Hawking
#10. I didn't have any writer friends in college. I was a computer science major, but I was writing a lot, probably more than anybody I knew. I started to submit novels to New York when I was a freshman in college. - Author: Watt Key
Materials Science quotes by Watt Key
#11. Imagine the same scene in HAMLET if Pullman had written it. Hamlet, using a mystic pearl, places the poison in the cup to kill Claudius. We are all told Claudius will die by drinking the cup. Then Claudius dies choking on a chicken bone at lunch. Then the Queen dies when Horatio shows her the magical Mirror of Death. This mirror appears in no previous scene, nor is it explained why it exists. Then Ophelia summons up the Ghost from Act One and kills it, while she makes a speech denouncing the evils of religion. Ophelia and Hamlet are parted, as it is revealed in the last act that a curse will befall them if they do not part ways. - Author: John C. Wright
Materials Science quotes by John C. Wright
#12. The true secret to seeking the unknown is in the looking, not the finding. The journey is what matters. - Author: Josh Gates
Materials Science quotes by Josh Gates
#13. Science should be taught not in order to support religion and not in order to destroy religion. Science should be taught simply ignoring religion. - Author: Steven Weinberg
Materials Science quotes by Steven Weinberg
#14. [Every age], however destitute of science or virtue, sufficiently abounds with acts of blood and military renown. - Author: Edward Gibbon
Materials Science quotes by Edward Gibbon
#15. It's horrid to be called a Shakespearean actor because that's incredibly limiting, and we love acting. We like telling stories; anything that excites us we want to be a part of. Science fiction is fun, too! - Author: Timothy Dalton
Materials Science quotes by Timothy Dalton
#16. After every few steps, we huddle over our ice axes mouths agape, struggling for sufficient breath to keep our muscles going.... at a height of 8800 metres, we can no longer keep on our feet while we rest. We crumple to our knees, clutching our axes.... Every ten or fifteen steps we collapse into the snow to rest, then crawl on again. - Author: Reinhold Messner
Materials Science quotes by Reinhold Messner
#17. It doesn't matter how smart you are, Enigma is always smarter. - Author: Joan Clarke
Materials Science quotes by Joan Clarke
#18. Why had he committed this terrible sin? Everything in the world was insignificant compared to what he had lost. Everything in the world is insignificant compared to the truth and purity of one small man – even the empire stretching from the Black Sea to the Pacific Ocean, even science itself.
Then he realized that it still wasn't too late. He still had the strength to lift up his head, to remain his mother's son.
And he wasn't going to try to console himself or justify what he had done. He wanted this mean, cowardly act to stand all his life as a reproach; day and night it would be something to bring him back to himself. No, no, no! He didn't want to strive to be a hero – and then preen himself over his courage.
Every hour, every day, year in, year out, he must struggle to be a man, struggle for his right to be pure and kind. He must do this with humility. And if it came to it, he mustn't be afraid even of death; even then he must remain a man.
'Well then, we'll see,' he said to himself. 'Maybe I do have enough strength. Your strength, Mother... - Author: Vasily Grossman
Materials Science quotes by Vasily Grossman
#19. Israel's rebirth as a nation after two thousand years is a freak phenomenon of history. But in all the branches of science the observation of freak phenomena yields important clues to general laws. Dwarf stars and human giants, radioactivity and parthenogenesis, prophets, maniacs and saints are all freaks which carry the conditions of normality to a pointed and profiled extreme. So does this race of eternal victims with its flayed skin and exposed nerves, which demonstrates, with the horrible precision of an anatomic atlas, a condition of man otherwise mercifully hidden from us. - Author: Arthur Koestler
Materials Science quotes by Arthur Koestler
#20. Whatever you do, don't make it worse by trying to come up with some flimsy excuse for why you were in the ventilation shaft, Lina told herself. - Author: Jaleigh Johnson
Materials Science quotes by Jaleigh Johnson
#21. I took care to replace the Compendium in its correct pamphlet, and in doing so dislodged a slim pamphlet by Grastrom, one of the most eccentric authors in Solarist literature. I had read the pamphlet, which was dictated by the urge to understand what lies beyond the individual, man, and the human species. It was the abstract, acidulous work of an autodidact who had previously made a series of unusual contributions to various marginal and rarefied branches of quantum physics. In this fifteen-page booklet (his magnum opus!), Grastrom set out to demonstrate that the most abstract achievements of science, the most advanced theories and victories of mathematics represented nothing more than a stumbling, one or two-step progression from our rude, prehistoric, anthropomorphic understanding of the universe around us. He pointed out correspondences with the human body-the projections of our sense, the structure of our physical organization, and the physiological limitations of man-in the equations of the theory of relativity, the theorem of magnetic fields and the various unified field theories. Grastrom's conclusion was that there neither was, nor could be any question of 'contact' between mankind and any nonhuman civilization. This broadside against humanity made no specific mention of the living ocean, but its constant presence and scornful, victorious silence could be felt between every line, at any rate such had been my own impression. It was Gibarian who drew it to my attention, - Author: Stanisław Lem
Materials Science quotes by Stanisław Lem
#22. Ty is green but never with envy. Best of all, he's usually available to help move a heavy piece of furniture. - Author: John Hopkins
Materials Science quotes by John Hopkins
#23. Piling up material goods cannot fill the emptiness of lives which have no confidence or purpose. - Author: Ronald Reagan
Materials Science quotes by Ronald Reagan
#24. Knowing how contented, free, and joyful is life in the world of science, one fervently wishes that many would enter its portals. - Author: Dmitri Mendeleev
Materials Science quotes by Dmitri Mendeleev
#25. It is a popular delusion that the scientific enquirer is under an obligation not to go beyond generalisation of observed facts ... but anyone who is practically acquainted with scientific work is aware that those who refuse to go beyond the facts, rarely get as far. - Author: Thomas Huxley
Materials Science quotes by Thomas Huxley
#26. Sacred Scripture, since it has no science above itself, can dispute with one who denies its principles only if the opponent admits some at least of the truths obtained through divine revelation; thus we can argue with heretics from texts in Holy Writ, and against those who deny one article of faith we can argue from another. If our opponent believes nothing of divine revelation, there is no longer any means of proving the articles of faith by reasoning, but only of answering his objections - if he has any - against faith. - Author: Thomas Aquinas
Materials Science quotes by Thomas Aquinas
#27. Al-Qur'an is not a book of Science, 'S-C-I-E-N-C-E' but a book of Signs 'S-I-G-N-S - Author: Zakir Naik
Materials Science quotes by Zakir Naik
#28. When a man finds a conclusion agreeable, he accepts it without argument, but when he finds it disagreeable, he will bring against it all the forces of logic and reason. - Author: Thucydides
Materials Science quotes by Thucydides
#29. I'm crazy about Grant: his character, his nature, his science in fighting and everything else. But I don't like the idea that he never accepted the blame for anything, always found someone else to blame for any mistake that was ever made, including blaming Prentiss for Shiloh. - Author: Shelby Foote
Materials Science quotes by Shelby Foote
#30. Doctors can do almost anything nowadays, can't they, unless they kill you while they're trying to cure you. - Author: Agatha Christie
Materials Science quotes by Agatha Christie
#31. [Science] works! Planes fly. Cars drive. Computers compute. If you base medicine on science, you cure people. If you base the design of planes on science, they fly. If you base the design of rockets on science, they reach the moon. It works ... bitches. - Author: Richard Dawkins
Materials Science quotes by Richard Dawkins
#32. The space industry is developing and delivering benefits that tie into our immediate needs and priorities here on Earth-for example, medical and materials research, and satellite communications. - Author: Marc Garneau
Materials Science quotes by Marc Garneau
#33. But how to raise a sum in the different States has been my greatest difficulty. - Author: Robert Fulton
Materials Science quotes by Robert Fulton
#34. The decadence which did occur in the Islamic world belongs to a much later period of Islamic history than is usually claimed. This fact would be fully substantiated if the integral history of Islamic science and civilization were to be written one day. Unfortunately to this day such a detailed history does not exist and moreover much of the scholarly work that has been done in this field has been carried out by Western scholars who have been naturally primarily interested in those aspects of the Islamic sciences that have influenced the West. It remains the task of Muslims scholars and scientists to look upon the whole of this scientific tradition from the point of view of Islam and the inner dynamics of Islamic history itself. - Author: Seyyed Hossein Nasr
Materials Science quotes by Seyyed Hossein Nasr
#35. North-South imbalances and the exploitation of men and raw materials, combined with the resignation of the peoples of the North, produce a much more devastating violence than that of armed groups, even if the latter are spectacular. - Author: Tariq Ramadan
Materials Science quotes by Tariq Ramadan
#36. They say "doubt everything," but I disagree. Doubt is useful in small amounts, but too much of it leads to apathy and confusion. No, don't doubt everything. QUESTION everything. That's the real trick. Doubt is just a lack of certainty. If you doubt everything, you'll doubt evolution, science, faith, morality, even reality itself - and you'll end up with nothing, because doubt doesn't give anything back. But questions have answers, you see. If you question everything, you'll find that a lot of what we believe is untrue...but you might also discover that some things ARE true. You might discover what your own beliefs are. And then you'll question them again, and again, eliminating flaws, discovering lies, until you get as close to the truth as you can.

Questioning is a lifelong process. That's precisely what makes it so unlike doubt. Questioning engages with reality, interrogating all it sees. Questioning leads to a constant assault on the intellectual status quo, where doubt is far more likely to lead to resigned acceptance. After all, when the possibility of truth is doubtful (excuse the pun), why not simply play along with the most convenient lie?

Questioning is progress, but doubt is stagnation. - Author: Tom Jubert / Jonas Kyratzes
Materials Science quotes by Tom Jubert / Jonas Kyratzes
#37. The shell model, although proposed by theoreticians, really corresponds to the experimentalist's approach. It was born from a thorough study of the experimental data, plotting them in different ways, and looking for interconnections. - Author: Maria Goeppert-Mayer
Materials Science quotes by Maria Goeppert-Mayer
#38. He's laughing me into a stupor, she thought. I could heckle, I suppose, I could throw a bread roll at him, but he's eaten them all. She glanced at the other diners, all of them going into their act, and thought is this what it all boils down to? Romantic love, is this all it is, a talent show? Eat a meal, go to bed, fall in love with me and I promise you years and years of top notch material like this? - Author: David Nicholls
Materials Science quotes by David Nicholls
#39. For me it is the direct contact of artist to material which is original, and it is the earth and his contact to it which will free him of the artificiality of the present and his dependence on industrial products. - Author: Isamu Noguchi
Materials Science quotes by Isamu Noguchi
#40. In the beginning (if there was such a thing), God created Newton's laws of motion together with the necessary masses and forces. This is all; everything beyond this follows from the development of appropriate mathematical methods by means of deduction. - Author: Albert Einstein
Materials Science quotes by Albert Einstein
#41. Standing there, peering around his room, Pete realized something that should have dawned on him years ago: Science really did suck. (Russell was right.) There just wasn't any point to it. Sure, in its most altruistic distillation, science saved lives - but when had it ever made those lives worth living? The cold machine called science's sole purpose, and Pete knew it now, was to drain the wonder out of things, to sap the imagination of its juices, to rob possibilities from dreamers. Science explained without ever getting to the crux of the matter, locking us all into a single paradigm of thought: that all we are is randomly accumulated stardust hanging out on a larger clump of randomly accumulated stardust that is spiraling out and away from other chunks of randomly accumulated stardust, on a collision course with an empty infinity. - Author: Jay Nichols
Materials Science quotes by Jay Nichols
#42. You can flip a coin but Schrodinger's pet cat will still be in that box. - Author: Scott Edward Shjefte
Materials Science quotes by Scott Edward Shjefte
#43. I am very excited about Quantum Forgiveness. The pioneers of quantum physics overturned and transcended Newtonian physics and the scientific method. Quantum physicists worked down to the smallest units and realized that everything they thought they knew about the world was not true. The world is about potentiality. In superposition, for example, things appear where we believe they will appear. And that is exciting because it is a science discovery that does not have to stay in the lab. It actually has everything to do with who we are. It is the gateway to our experience of being one with Source! - Author: David Hoffmeister
Materials Science quotes by David Hoffmeister
#44. Passion, Baird reckoned, was what would take men across the river and up the breach. Damn scientific soldiering now. The science of siege warfare had opened the city, but only a screaming and insane passion would take men inside. - Author: Bernard Cornwell
Materials Science quotes by Bernard Cornwell
#45. My blood relatives are dead," Chen stated. "The Prominence Royal Army killed them. I'm the only one left. My given name is Qiao. I tell people my name is Chen, my surname, to honor the ones I lost. - Author: J.K. Bailey
Materials Science quotes by J.K.  Bailey
#46. How does it happen that a properly endowed natural scientist comes to concern himself with epistemology? Is there no more valuable work in his specialty? I hear many of my colleagues saying, and I sense it from many more, that they feel this way. I cannot share this sentiment. When I think about the ablest students whom I have encountered in my teaching, that is, those who distinguish themselves by their independence of judgment and not merely their quick-wittedness, I can affirm that they had a vigorous interest in epistemology. They happily began discussions about the goals and methods of science, and they showed unequivocally, through their tenacity in defending their views, that the subject seemed important to them. Indeed, one should not be surprised at this. - Author: Albert Einstein
Materials Science quotes by Albert Einstein
#47. As president, I believe that robotics can inspire young people to pursue science and engineering. And I also want to keep an eye on those robots in case they try anything. - Author: Barack Obama
Materials Science quotes by Barack Obama
#48. I tend more towards what some people call literary science fiction, but what I mean by that is that it is full of interesting language, experimentation, and ideas. - Author: Edward Einhorn
Materials Science quotes by Edward Einhorn
#49. The game of science can accurately be described as a never-ending insult to human intelligence. - Author: Joao Magueijo
Materials Science quotes by Joao Magueijo
#50. Thought dissolves the material universe by carrying the mind up into a sphere where all is plastic. - Author: Ralph Waldo Emerson
Materials Science quotes by Ralph Waldo Emerson
