Science and art are only too often a superior kind of dope, possessing this advantage over booze and morphia: that they can be indulged in with a good conscience and with the conviction that, in the process of indulging, one is leading the “higher life.”

Aldous (Leonard) Huxley

Science and art, or by the same token, poetry and prose differ from one another like a journey and an excursion. The purpose of the journey is its goal, the purpose of an excursion is the process.

Franz Grillparzer

Science is a human activity, and the best way to understand it is to understand the individual human beings who practise it. Science is an art form and not a philosophical method. The great advances in science usually result from new tools rather than from new doctrines. ... Every time we introduce a new tool, it always leads to new and unexpected discoveries, because Nature's imagination is richer than ours.

Freeman Dyson

Science is our century's art

Horace Freeland Judson

Science provides an understanding of a universal experience, and arts provides a universal understanding of a personal experience

Mae C. Jemison

The most beautiful experience we can have is the mysterious—the fundamental emotion which stands at the cradle of true art and true science

Albert Einstein
