My favorite scientific law is Cantor's law of the conservation of ignorance:
"A false conclusion once arrived at and widely accepted is not easily dislodged and the less it is understood, the more tenaciously it is held."
Some of my other favorite quotes:
"Exercise is not a mere variant of rest ... it is the essence of the machine." Joseph Barcroft
"I can calculate the motion of heavenly bodies, but not the madness of people" — Isaac Newton
“No one, unless he is grossly ignorant of what science has done for mankind, can entertain any doubt of the incalculable benefits which will hereafter be derived from physiology.” — Charles Darwin
