Thomas Huxley Quotes and Quotations


Perhaps the most valuable result of all education is the ability to make yourself do the thing you have to do, when it ought to be done, whether you like it or not; it is the first lesson that ought to be learned, and however early a man's training begins, it is probably the last lesson that he learns thoroughly.
- Thomas Huxley | Education Quotes
If a little knowledge is dangerous - where is the man who has so much as to be out of danger?
- Thomas Huxley | Knowledge Quotes
Sit down before fact as a little child, be prepared to give up every preconceived notion, follow humbly wherever and to whatever abyss nature leads, or you shall learn nothing.
- Thomas Huxley | Knowledge Quotes
Every great advance in natural knowledge has involved the absolute rejection of authority.
- Thomas Huxley | Knowledge Quotes
Of moral purpose I see no trace in Nature. That is an article of exclusively human manufacture - and very much to our credit.
- Thomas Huxley | Morality and Ethics Quotes
If some great power would agree to make me always think what is true and do what is right, on condition of being some sort of clock and wound up every morning before I got out of bed, I should close instantly with the offer.
- Thomas Huxley | Morality and Ethics Quotes
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. We know that his play is always fair, just and patient. But also we know, to our cost, that he never overlooks a mistake, or makes the smallest allowance for ignorance.
- Thomas Huxley | Nature Quotes
The great tragedy of Science: the slaying of a beautiful hypothesis by an ugly fact.
Sit down before fact as a little child, be prepared to give up every preconceived notion, follow humbly wherever and to whatever abyss nature leads, or you shall learn nothing.
Tolerably early in life I discovered that one of the unpardonable sins, in the eyes of most people, is for a man to go about unlabeled. The world regards such a person as the police do an unmuzzled dog.
- Thomas Huxley | Society and Social Quotes
