Famous quotes containing the words science and/or political:

    Magic is akin to science in that it always has a definite aim intimately associated with human instincts, needs, and pursuits. The magic art is directed towards the attainment of practical aims. Like other arts and crafts, it is also governed by a theory, by a system of principles which dictate the manner in which the act has to be performed in order to be effective.
    Bronislaw Malinowski (1984–1942)

    The political arena leaves one no alternative, one must either be a dunce or a rogue.
    Emma Goldman (1869–1940)
