Quote of the day

Spiritual science

“Science is not only compatible with spirituality, it is a profound source of spirituality. When we recognize our place in an immensity of light‐years and in the passage of ages, when we grasp the intricacy, beauty, and subtlety of life, then that soaring feeling, that sense of elation and humility combined, is surely spiritual.”

Carl Sagan

  1. Wondeful choice for a quote for the day, Mike. I loved Carl Sagan. He – and his words – were inspirational, and he said some powerful things that have stayed with me all my life. In these unstable and spiritually-starved times, we should all print this out and read it every day.

  2. I believe that the pilgrimage of science has itself been led by genius, and genius is the encounter with the spiritual. I tried to tease out this journey of science in a poetic history of science from Parmenides to Planck.

    But its good to be in company with Sagan!

  3. Beautifully said. I think Carl Sagan would have appreciated this quote: “If we watch ourselves honestly we shall often find that we have begun to argue against a new idea even before it has been completely stated.”
