"A powerful attraction exists, therefore, to the promotion of a study and of duties of all others engrossing the time most completely, and which is less benefited than most others by any acquaintance with science." (ID 29946)

"Perhaps it would be better for science, that all criticism should be avowed." (ID 30386)

"It is therefore not unreasonable to suppose that some portion of the neglect of science in England, may be attributed to the system of education we pursue." (ID 30388)

"The accumulation of skill and science which has been directed to diminish the difficulty of producing manufactured goods, has not been beneficial to that country alone in which it is concentrated; distant kingdoms have participated in its advantages." (ID 30389)

"To those who have chosen the profession of medicine, a knowledge of chemistry, and of some branches of natural history, and, indeed, of several other departments of science, affords useful assistance." (ID 30390)

"That science has long been neglected and declining in England, is not an opinion originating with me, but is shared by many, and has been expressed by higher authority than mine." (ID 30393)
