Science Quotes by Peter Browne (1 quote)
Portrait, oil on canvas, by Hugh Howard. (source)
All the real true knowledge we have of Nature is intirely experimental, insomuch that, how strange soever the assertion seems, we may lay this down as the first fundamental unerring rule in physics, That it is not within the compass of human understanding to assign a purely speculative reason for any one phaenomenon in nature.
