Scientists about the imperfection of science
…no matter how perfect the theory, it is only an approximation to the truth
A. M. Butlerov
Science cannot err in things, she can be wrong only in the understanding of things.
Science is often confused with knowledge. This is a gross misunderstanding. Science is not only knowledge , but also consciousness, i.e. the ability to use knowledge.
V. O. Klyuchevsky
The universe cannot be reduced to the level of human understanding, as has been done until now, but should expand and develop the human mind in order to perceive the image of the universe as it is open
…absurd to deny the role of fantasy in the strictest science..

Without imagination and the mind of Copernicus and Newton would not give us a worldview, become the property of the entire educated world.Nothing great in the world can not do without the assistance of imagination.
N. And. Pies Science wins when its wings relaxed imagination

Imagination is more important than knowledge, for knowledge is limited, imagination encompasses the same everything in the world, stimulating progress, and is the source of its evolution.
Science, like all forms of art, requires imagination.
