    Speaking of nature and science (no, not the journals), here's one I like :

    "The scientist does not study nature because it is useful; he studies it because he delights in it, and he delights in it because it is beautiful. If nature were not beautiful, it would not be worth knowing, and if nature were not worth knowing, life would not be worth living."

    - Jules Henri Poincare'

    "Some men spend a lifetime in an attempt to comprehend the complexities of
    women. Others pre-occupy themselves with somewhat simpler
    tasks, such as understanding the theory of relativity !" - Albert Einstein

    Got to love Fenyman for these ...

    "One does not, by knowing all the physical laws as we know them
    today, immediately obtain an understanding of anything much."

    "Physics is to Math what Sex is to Masturbation"

    "For those who want some proof that physicists are human, the
    proof is in the idiocy of all the different units which they use for
    measuring energy."
