Science affects us all-in the words of Albert Einstein, "The whole of science is nothing more than a refinement of everyday thinking." It is therefore fascinating to discover the thoughts of scientists, philosophers, humanists, poets, theologians, politicians, and other miscellaneous mortals on this most important of subjects.
A Dictionary of Scientific Quotations is a personal selection of scientific quotations by Professor Alan L Mackay that includes graffiti, lines of song, proverbs, and poetry. Whether you believe that "All problems are finally scientific problems" (George Bernard Shaw) or that "Imagination is more important than knowledge" (Einstein), it is without doubt that "It is a good thing for an uneducated man to read books of quotations" (Churchill). You will be charmed and delighted by this collection and remember, "'Why, '" said the Dodo, "'the best way to explain it is to do it'" (Alice in Wonderland, Lewis Carroll).

!A witty and stimulating bed-side book. --Contemporary Physics I would also thoroughly recommend the book as simply a good read for anyone ! No scientist's bookshelf should be without one. --The Journal of the IPSM and HPA-SCOPE Irresistible. --New Scientist Very brilliant, pleasing to the [reader] ! connoisseurs will find satisfaction, but in such a way that even non-connoisseurs must feel content without knowing why. --Scientometrics
