Jacob Bronowski

Science has nothing to be ashamed of even in the ruins of Nagasaki. The shame is theirs who appeal to other values than the human imaginative values which science has evolved.
Jacob Bronowski

Sooner or later every one of us breathes an atom that has been breathed before by anyone you can think of who has lived before us-Michelangelo or George Washington or Moses.
Jacob Bronowski

That is the essence of science: ask an impertinent question, and you are on the way to a pertinent answer.
Jacob Bronowski

The hand is the cutting edge of the mind.
Jacob Bronowski

The most wonderful discovery made by scientists is science itself.
Jacob Bronowski

The values by which we are to survive are not rules for just and unjust conduct, but are those deeper illuminations in whose light justice and injustice, good and evil, means and ends are seen in fearful sharpness of outline.
Jacob Bronowski

The world can only be grasped by action, not by contemplation.
Jacob Bronowski

The world is full of people who never quite get into the first team and who just miss the prizes at the flower show.
Jacob Bronowski

The world is made of people who never quite get into the first team and who just miss the prizes at the flower show.
Jacob Bronowski

To me, being an intellectual doesn't mean knowing about intellectual issues; it means taking pleasure in them.
Jacob Bronowski

We gain our ends only with the laws of nature; we control her only by understanding her laws.
Jacob Bronowski

Jacob Bronowski
