The cloning of humans is on most of the lists of things to worry about from Science, along with behaviour control, genetic engineering, transplanted heads, computer poetry and the unrestrained growth of plastic flowers. - Lewis Thomas
One man's "magic" is another man's engineering. "Supernatural" is a null word.
One man’s magic is another man’s engineering. Supernatural is a null word. - Robert A. Heinlein
Engineers do engineering, i.e. they build bridges. So engineering needs engineers. The economy does NOT need economists. Economists do not make economy, but they try it and that is why we have so much problems with some financial models. - Steve Keen
Genetic engineering was messy. To force a sequence of foreign DNA into a plant, you couldn’t just snip the desired gene from the bacteria and sew it on to the plant’s DNA sequence like an old woman working on a quilt. - Kenneth Eade
Engineering is the professional and systematic application of science to the efficient utilization of natural resources to produce wealth. - T. J. Hoover and J. C. L. Fish
The ideal engineer is a composite ... He is not a scientist, he is not a mathematician, he is not a sociologist or a writer; but he may use the knowledge and techniques of any or all of these disciplines in solving engineering problems. - N. W. Dougherty
This book is like an engineering masterpiece, can't be bad ! No matter what it will always be the greatest of all.See this link for more information:jeffabbott.com.panic - Jeff Abbott
I believe, given enough time, all of engineering will move to paradigms based on the biological cell. - Brian Bennudriti

Engineering is the practice of safe and economic application of the scientific laws governing the forces and materials of nature by means of organization, design and construction, for the general benefit of mankind. - S. E. Lindsay
Engineering is the science of economy, of conserving the energy, kinetic and potential, provided and stored up by nature for the use of man. It is the business of engineering to utilize this energy to the best advantage, so that there may be the least possible waste. - William A. Smith
Engineering is the professional art of applying science to the optimum conversion of natural resources to the benefit of man. - Ralph J. Smith
Engineering -nature is engineering, so is culture, science is right behind, only chaos is not an engineer- and, along with it, the furious need to reproduce. - Elena Ferrante
We [-women and men-] are all equal in our creaturehood, whatever our sex, color, age, background, or abilities. But we are all different in the functions we were created to perform, as different as water from stones, and engineering from imaginative fiction. - Mary McDermott Shideler
Engineering is not only study of 45 subjects but it is moral studies of intellectual life. - Prakhar Srivastav
Engineering is the continuation of politics by other means - Me, with a nod to Carl von Clausewitz
Any impatient student of mathematics or science or engineering who is irked by having algebraic symbolism thrust upon him should try to get along without it for a week.
Engineering is the art of organizing and directing men and controlling the forces and materials of nature for the benefit of the human race. - Henry G. Stott
The inspirational value of the space program is probably of far greater importance to education than any input of dollars... A whole generation is growing up which has been attracted to the hard disciplines of science and engineering by the romance of space. - Arthur C. Clarke
Liberals tend to view traditions, policies, and morals of past generations as arbitrary designs put in place by less enlightened people. Because of this, liberals don't pay much attention to why traditions developed or wonder about possible ramifications of their social engineering. - John Hawkins
