Thomas Henry Huxley

The Bible has been the Magna Carta of the poor and of the oppressed.
Thomas Henry Huxley

The chess-board is the world, the pieces are the phenomena of the universe, the rules of the game are what we call the laws of Nature. The player on the other side is hidden from us.
Thomas Henry Huxley

The great tragedy of science - the slaying of a beautiful hypothesis by an ugly fact.
Thomas Henry Huxley

The medieval university looked backwards; it professed to be a storehouse of old knowledge. The modern university looks forward, and is a factory of new knowledge.
Thomas Henry Huxley

Thomas Henry Huxley

The rung of a ladder was never meant to rest upon, but only to hold a man's foot long enough to enable him to put the other somewhat higher.
Thomas Henry Huxley
