A Quote by "Mahatma" Mohandas Karamchand Gandhi on politics, pleasure, wealth, knowledge, business, science, and worship

The things that will destroy us are: politics without principle; pleasure without conscience; wealth without work; knowledge without character; business without morality; science without humanity; and worship without sacrifice.

A Quote by Dalai Lama on science, buddhism, and religion

If scientific analysis were conclusively to demonstrate certain claims in Buddhism to be false, then we must accept the findings of science and abandon those claims.

Si nuestros dioses y esperanzas
no son más que fenómenos científicos...
...entonces se debería decir
que nuestro amor... es igualmente científico

A Quote by John David Ebert on being, context, web, interconnections, myth, and science

Every book that comes into being does so within the context of a web of interconnections between individuals, and this is no less so in the present case. The idea for this book first occured to me in 1994 while reading a passage from William Irwin Thompson's book - Imaginary Landscape: Making Worlds of Myth and Science - in which he briefly discusses David Cronenberg's great film - Videodrome - and I would never have stumbled across the works of Thompson if they had not been recommended to me by my friend John Lobell - and the website companion to this - would not exist without Lobell's initiative and enthusiasm for the essays contained herein.

A Quote by Joseph Wood Krutch on religion, science, and the world

The world of poetry, mythology, and religion represents the world as a man would like to have it, while science represents the world as he gradually comes to discover it.

A Quote by Mairead Corrigan-Maguire on spiritual life, science, and humanity

We do need spiritual enlightenment, and we also need a lot of changes in our policies. Our spiritual life should energize us and help us to be politically active. We need both the spiritual world and the secular world to work together. If we only go by the rational, fear can set in. If we bring the heart to it, we understand that we're interconnected as human beings, and we really have to help each other....Our common humanity is more important than all the things that divide us....I'm very hopeful for the future of humanity because I do believe we have this great convergence of science and spiritual life. And I think when we bring those two great influences together, then we have the heart (compassion and love) and we have the head (the knowledge) to know what to do.
