Asimov on Science

A quote by Asimov in his New Guide To Science via John Gribbin's Science: A History.

No one can really feel at home in the modern world and judge the nature of its problems - and the possible solutions to those problems - unless one has some intelligent notion of what science is up to. Furthermore, initiation into the magnificent world of science brings great esthetic satisfaction, inspiration to youth, fulfillment of the desire to know, and a deeper appreciation of the wonderful potentialities and achievements of the human mind.

I think there is great wisdom in this and makes things such as this (via 3quarksdaily) and this so much more depressing.
