"Today more than ever before, science holds the key to our survival as a planet and our security and prosperity as a nation." Barack Obama

"I am often amazed at how much more capability and enthusiasm for science there is among elementary school youngsters than among college students."

"If you would not be forgotten, as soon as you are dead and rotten,either write things worth reading, or do things worth the writing."  -Ben Franklin

"Each problem that I solved became a rule, which served afterwards to solve other problems."

"Give me a lever long enough and a fulcrum on which to place it, and I shall move the world."

"No amount of experimentation can ever prove me right; a single experiment can prove me wrong."

"Nothing has such power to broaden the mind as the ability to investigate systematically and truly all that comes under thy observation in life."

"Science does not know its debt to imagination."

Newton's laws of motion are often stated in layman’s terms for simplification and easy recollection as:
  •         First Law: "An object in motion will stay in motion and an object at rest will stay at rest unless acted upon by an external force" or "A body persists in a state of uniform motion or of rest unless acted upon by an external force."
  •         Second Law: "Force equals mass times acceleration" or "F = ma."
  •         Third Law: "To every action there is an equal and opposite reaction."
"The most exciting phrase to hear in science, the one that heralds new discoveries, is not 'Eureka!' but 'That's funny...' "

"The scientific theory I like best is that the rings of Saturn are composed entirely of lost airline luggage."

"What is a scientist after all? It is a curious man looking through a keyhole, the keyhole of nature, trying to know what's going on."

"It is clear to everyone that astronomy at all events compels the soul to look upwards, and draws it from the things of this world to the other."
Plato (BC 427-BC 347) Greek philosopher.

"Whether a person shows themselves to be a genius in science or in writing a song, the only point is, whether the thought, the discovery, or the deed, is living and can live on."
