„What was needed was a little more human charity, a little more willingness to listen rather than to lay down the law, a little more humility. Scientists stand in need of these Christian virtues just as much as preachers do.“

—  Freeman Dyson, buch Infinite in All Directions

Quelle: Infinite in All Directions (1988), Ch. 1 : In Praise of Diversity
Kontext: There is no easy solution to the conflict between fundamentalist Christian dogma and the facts of biological evolution. I am not saying that the conflict could have been altogether avoided. I am saying only that the conflict was made more bitter and more damaging, both to religion and to science, by the dogmatic and self-righteousness of scientists. What was needed was a little more human charity, a little more willingness to listen rather than to lay down the law, a little more humility. Scientists stand in need of these Christian virtues just as much as preachers do.

„Whatever this is that I am, it is flesh and a little spirit and an intelligence. (Hays translation)“

—  Marcus Aurelius, buch Selbstbetrachtungen

This that I am, whatever it be, is mere flesh and a little breathe and the ruling Reason (Haines translation)

A little flesh, a little breath, and a Reason to rule all – that is myself.
II, 2
