Percival Lowell

Irrigation, unscientifically conducted, would not give us such truly wonderful mathematical fitness [as we observe in the Martian canals]. . . . A mind of no mean order would seem to have presided over the system we see-a mind certainly of considerably more comprehensiveness than that which presides over the various department of our own public works.More Percival Lowell quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
The whole object of science is to synthesize, and so simplify; and did we but know the uttermost of a subject we could make it singularly clear.More Percival Lowell quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
Imagination is as vital to any advance in science as learning and precision are essential for starting points. Let me warn you to beware of two opposite errors: of letting your imagination soar unballasted by facts, but on the other hand, of shackling it so solidly that it loses all incentive to rise.More Percival Lowell quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
Now when we think that each of these stars is probably the centre of a solar system grander than our own, we cannot seriously take ourselves to be the only minds in it all.More Percival Lowell quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
