Seeing More With Science

Don't get blinded by science, physicist Brian Greene says. Today's Quote of the Day comes from his NYT op-ed piece Put a Little Science in Your Life:

It’s striking that science is still widely viewed as merely a subject one studies in the classroom or an isolated body of largely esoteric knowledge that sometimes shows up in the “real” world in the form of technological or medical advances. In reality, science is a language of hope and inspiration, providing discoveries that fire the imagination and instill a sense of connection to our lives and our world.

Brian Greene, a professor of physics and mathematics at Columbia University, is the author of The Elegant Universe and The Fabric of the Cosmos.
