„Science is not a monolithic body of doctrine. Science is a culture, constantly growing and changing.“

—  Freeman Dyson, libro Infinite in All Directions

Origine: Infinite in All Directions (1988), Ch. 1 : In Praise of Diversity
Contesto: Science is not a monolithic body of doctrine. Science is a culture, constantly growing and changing. The science of today has broken out of the molds of classical nineteenth-century science, just as the paintings of Pablo Picasso and Jackson Pollock broke out of the molds of nineteenth century art. Science has as many competing styles as painting or poetry. The diversity of science also finds a parallel in the diversity of religion.

„In a progressive country change is constant; and the great question is, not whether you should resist change which is inevitable, but whether that change should be carried out in deference to the manners, the customs, the laws, the traditions of the people, or in deference to abstract principles and arbitrary and general doctrines. The one is a national system; the other…is a philosophic system.“

—  Benjamin Disraeli British Conservative politician, writer, aristocrat and Prime Minister 1804 - 1881

Speech on Reform Bill of 1867, Edinburgh, Scotland (29 October 1867); quoted in William Flavelle Monypenny and George Earle Buckle, The Life of Benjamin Disraeli, Earl of Beaconsfield. Volume II. 1860–1881 (London: John Murray, 1929), p. 291.

„The perpetual stream of human nature is formed into ever-changing shallows, eddies, falls and pools by the land over which it passes.“

—  Mary Renault, libro The Mask of Apollo

The Mask of Apollo (1966)
Contesto: Christianity and Islam have changed irrevocably the moral reflexes of the world. The philosopher Herakleitos said with profound truth that you cannot step twice into the same river. The perpetual stream of human nature is formed into ever-changing shallows, eddies, falls and pools by the land over which it passes. Perhaps the only real value of history lies in considering this endlessly varied play between the essence and the accidents.

„The most marvelous and far-reaching change which man ever undergoes is in his moral character and spiritual nature.“

—  Kirby Page American clergyman 1890 - 1957

Origine: Something More, A Consideration of the Vast, Undeveloped Resources of Life (1920), p. 33
Contesto: The most significant change in a man is not the change in his bodily strength or mental capacity. The most marvelous and far-reaching change which man ever undergoes is in his moral character and spiritual nature.
