A Quote by William Thomson on beginning, kindness, knowledge, and science

When you can measure what you are speaking about, and express it in numbers, you know something about it; but when you cannot measure it, when you cannot express it in numbers, your knowledge is of a meager and unsatisfactory kind. It may be the beginning of knowledge, but you have scarcely, in your thoughts, advanced to the stage of Science.

William Thomson (1824 - 1907)
