Robyn Mundell, Brainwalker

Tite Kubo
“The perfect being, huh? There is no such thing as perfect in this world. That may sound cliché, but it’s the truth. The average person admires perfection and seeks to obtain it. But, what’s the point of achieving perfection? There is none. Nothing. Not a single thing. I loathe perfection! If something is perfect, then there is nothing left. There is no room for imagination. No place left for a person to gain additional knowledge or abilities. Do you know what that means? For scientists such as ourselves, perfection only brings despair. It is our job to create things more wonderful than anything before them, but never to obtain perfection. A scientist must be a person who finds ecstasy while suffering from that antimony. In short, the moment that foolishness left your mouth and reached my ears, you had already lost. Of course, that’s assuming you are a scientist”
Tite Kubo

Kurt Vonnegut Jr.
“I am a very bad scientist. I will do anything to make a human being feel better, even if it's unscientific. No scientist worthy of the name could say such a thing.”

Henri Poincaré
Le savant doit ordonner ; on fait la science avec des faits comme une maison avec des pierres ; mais une accumulation de faits n'est pas plus une science qu'un tas de pierres n'est une maison.

The Scientist must set in order. Science is built up with facts, as a house is with stones. But a collection of facts is no more a science than a heap of stones is a house.”
Henri Poincare, Science and Hypothesis

“All of us,' he said, 'have hopes of being poet, artist, discoverer, philospoher, scientist; of possessing the attributes of all these simultaneously. Few are permitted to achieve any of them in daily life. But in travel we attain them all. Then we have our day of glory, when all our dreams come true, when we can be anything we like, as long as we like, and, when we are tired of it, pull up stakes and move on. Travel -- the solitude of the mountains, the emptiness of the desert, the delicacy of the minaret; eternal change, limitless contrast, unending variety.' (Eric Lang)”
Robert Edison Fulton Jr., One Man Caravan

“A scientist doesn't know all the answers. Nobody does, not even teachers. But a scientist keeps on trying to find the answers.”
Oliver Butterworth, The Enormous Egg

Elbert Hubbard
“Professor [John] Tyndall once said the finest inspiration he ever received was from an old man who could scarcely read. This man acted as his servant. Each morning the old man would knock on the door of the scientist and call, 'Arise, Sir: it is near seven o'clock and you have great work to do today.”
Elbert Hubbard

Dejan Stojanovic
“Entering a cell, penetrating deep as a flying saucer to find a new galaxy would be an honorable task for a new scientist interested more in the inner state of the soul than in outer space.”
Dejan Stojanovic

Louis de Broglie
“Vulnerable, like all men, to the temptations of arrogance, of which intellectual pride is the worst, he [the scientist] must nevertheless remain sincere and modest, if only because his studies constantly bring home to him that, compared with the gigantic aims of science, his own contribution, no matter how important, is only a drop in the ocean of truth.”
Louis de Broglie, Nouvelles perspectives en microphysique

Toba Beta
“Love permeates all things and laws.
Scientists should research it more.”
Toba Beta, My Ancestor Was an Ancient Astronaut

“The intention (of an artist) is (the same as a scientist)...to discover and reveal what is unsuspected but significant in life.”
H W Leggett

Harmony Korine
“A scientist shouldn't be asked to judge the economic and moral value of his work. All we should ask the scientist to do is find the truth and then not keep it from anyone.”
Harmony Korine

Josiah Willard Gibbs
His true monument lies not on the shelves of libraries, but in the thoughts of men, and in the history of more than one science.

Josiah Willard Gibbs

Thomas Jefferson
“I consider him [Alexander von Humboldt] the most important scientist whom I have met.”
Thomas Jefferson

“If a scientist does not understand a problem, he writes down many formulae, but as soon as he has understood it, there remain at most two.”
Neils Bohr

Abhijit Naskar
“Science if put to real use for the benefit of humanity could eliminate suffering in a matter of months, yet suffering persists - you know why, because the science of today is driven by capitalism not curiosity. Science driven by capitalism creates a divided planet - where one section has more than they can digest and another has not even the essentials to keep body and soul together.”
Abhijit Naskar, Good Scientist: When Science and Service Combine

Abhijit Naskar
“Ten average scientists with a strong sense of humanity can do more good to the world than a hundred brilliant scientists with weak humanity.”

Abhijit Naskar, Good Scientist: When Science and Service Combine

Abhijit Naskar
“I haven't come for science, I have come for love.”
Abhijit Naskar, Sleepless for Society

Santosh    Kumar
“You can't become a great scientist without perfect observation, your observation must be succeed to reality at least 90%.”
Santosh Kumar (San)

Mehmet Murat ildan
“The existence of scientists who love their work so much even to put their lives in danger is the greatest hope for human progress on the path of civilization!”
Mehmet Murat ildan

Edward O. Wilson
“Since so much of good science- and perhaps all of great science- has its roots in fantasy, I suggest that you yourself engage in a bit right now. Where would you like to be, what would you like to be doing professionally ten years from now, twenty, fifty? Next, imagine that you are much older and looking back at a successful career. What kind of great discovery, and in what field of science, would you savor most having made?

I recommend creating scenarios that end with goals, then choosing ones you wish to pursue. Make it a practice to indulge in fantasy about science. Make it more than just an occasional exercise. Daydream a lot. Make talking to yourself silently a relaxing pastime. Give lectures to yourself about important topics that you need to understand. Talk with others of like mind. By their dreams you shall know them.”
Edward O. Wilson, Letters to a Young Scientist

Albert Einstein
“Most people say that it is the intellect which makes a great scientist. They are wrong: it is character.”
Albert Einstein

“Whoever pretends that a technician, an architect, a doctor, an engineer, or any type of scientist should merely work with the in­struments in his own specific field while his people starve to death or fall in battle, has in fact taken the side of the enemy. He is not apolitical, he is political-but in opposition to movements for lib­eration.”
Che Guevara

Abhijit Naskar
“Not Woke, Only Accountable (A Sonnet)

I am no teacher but only lover,
I know no philosophy but amity.
I am no writer but only revolution,
I know no politics but serenity.
I am no thinker but only soldier,
I know no science but ascension.
I am no authority but only service,
I know no poetry but inclusion.
I am no humanist but only human,
I know no ideology but oneness.
I am no woke but only accountable,
I know no paradise but acceptance.
Taint not the mind with a puny label.
We are beautiful when we are indivisible.”
Abhijit Naskar, Generation Corazon: Nationalism is Terrorism

Abhijit Naskar
“Having the data is not the same as having the expertise to look through the data - if it were, everybody with a smartphone would be a doctor or a scientist.”
Abhijit Naskar, Mucize Insan: When The World is Family
