Geology Quotations

If you want to understand geology, study earthquakes. If you want to understand the economy, study the Depression.
Ben Bernanke

Henry David Thoreau

My only wish would be to have 10 more lives to live on this planet. If that were possible, I'd spend one lifetime each in embryology, genetics, physics, astronomy and geology. The other lifetimes would be as a pianist, backwoodsman, tennis player, or writer for the 'National Geographic.'
Joseph Murray

Caves are whimsical things, and geology on a local scale is random and unpredictable.
William Stone

One of the most important things about the geology on the moon is your descriptions of what you see, comparing them to things that you've seen on Earth so that the geologists and the scientists on the ground would know what you're talking about; and then take pictures of them.
Eugene Cernan
