    Everything is energy. It's physics. So I find the science of it all interesting; how 90% of stuff that's in our universe is made of stuff that we can't even measure. I find that fascinating.

  • By Anonym

    Everything we call real is made of things that cannot be regarded as real.

  • By Anonym

    I do find that Western medicine is more and more open to proving energetic concepts. Why not, because modern physics is 100 percent based on it.

  • By Anonym

    I began peering into the corners of the room, making sure all the shadows were cast by objects and obeying known laws of physics.

  • By Anonym

    I don't. We've had three technological revolutions that have changed the course of human history, all driven by physics. In the first, the industrial revolution, physicists developed Newtonian mechanics and thermodynamics, which gave us the steam engine and machine power. The second technological revolution was the electricity revolution. That gave us radio, television, and telecommunications. Then, physicists developed the laser and the transistor.

    How can you be a physics major and be shocked when you get pregnant from having sex?

  • By Anonym

    If it weren’t for physics and law enforcement, I’d be unstoppable.

  • By Anonym

    If someone says that he can think or talk about quantum physics without becoming dizzy, that shows only that he has not understood anything whatever about it.

  • By Anonym

    If the laws of physics be for us, who can be against us?!

  • By Anonym

    I entered the Physics Department in 1950, receiving a Master's degree in 1953 and a Ph.D. in 1956. It is difficult to convey the sense of excitement that pervaded the Department at that time.

  • By Anonym

    I got into physics through pop science and quantum science and ended up being such a quantum groupie.

  • By Anonym

    If I can't picture it, I can't understand it.

  • By Anonym

    I have sold more books on physics than Madonna has on sex. [Hawking adopted this statement from a remark made to him by his former post-doc, Nathan Myhrvold.]

  • By Anonym

    I just really like ants, and I really like science. I was interested and curious about the quantum world and the physics behind how it all works.

  • By Anonym

    I like to think the moon is there even if I am not looking at it.

  • By Anonym

    I have always believed that astrophysics should be the extrapolation of laboratory physics, that we must begin from the present universe and work our way backward to progressively more remote and uncertain epochs.

  • By Anonym

    I had no new ideas on the physics we might learn, and I could not compete with the younger generation.

    • physics quotes
  • By Anonym

    I may have made a straight A in physics, but I was panic-struck. Physics made me sick the whole time I learned it.

  • By Anonym

    I'm a bit of a layman physics junkie. I don't really understand it, but I love trying to understand it.

  • By Anonym

    I'm fascinated with quantum physics.

    • physics quotes
  • By Anonym

    In 1948 I was appointed to a Lectureship in Physics and in 1949 elected to a Fellowship at Trinity College.

  • By Anonym

    I make figurative portraits as a way to explore theories of quantum physics.

  • By Anonym

    In geometric and physical applications, it always turns out that a quantity is characterized not only by its tensor order, but also by symmetry.

  • By Anonym

    In Einstein's theory of relativity the observer is a man who sets out in quest of truth armed with a measuring-rod. In quantum theory he sets out with a sieve.

  • By Anonym

    In physics, you don't have to go around making trouble for yourself - nature does it for you.

    • physics quotes
  • By Anonym

    In physics, your solution should convince a reasonable person. In math, you have to convince a person who's trying to make trouble. Ultimately, in physics, you're hoping to convince Nature. And I've found Nature to be pretty reasonable.

  • By Anonym

    In science there is only physics; all the rest is stamp collecting.

  • By Anonym

    Instead of physicists teaching physics, physicists should go home and see what physics applies to their home.

  • By Anonym

    In the 20th century philosophy of time for a great many theorists became part of science because it was time as is studied in physics that became the object of philosophical speculation. That's very different from the way time has normally been understood.

  • By Anonym

    In a previous life I wrote the software that controlled my physics experiments. That software had to deal with all kinds of possible failures in equipment. That is probably where I learned to rely on multiple safety nets inside and around my systems.

  • By Anonym

    I read a lot of science books - I love cosmology, quantum theory, particle physics. So my idea of a great read would probably put you directly into a coma.

  • By Anonym

    It is a bizarre world. It is an upside down, inside out, quantum physics world. It is the eve of destruction in America.

  • By Anonym

    It seems to be almost a law of physics, that the winds of change awaken fear and fundamentalism.

  • By Anonym

    It's not magic! It's physics. The speed of the turn is what keeps you upright. It's like a spinning top.

  • By Anonym

    It's physics. Pure physics, I'm falling fast and faster still. So fall with me. Fall down with me. And stay.

  • By Anonym

    I remember being in strong physics, physiology and biology classes.

  • By Anonym

    In the most modern theories of physics probability seems to have replaced aether as "the nominative of the verb 'to undulate'.

  • By Anonym

    I've always thought that one of the the great thing about physics is that you can add more digits to any number and see what happens and nobody can stop you.

  • By Anonym

    I've always been fascinated by quantum physics and the possibility of alternate realities.

  • By Anonym

    I was already sort of mixing my science physics enthusiasm with entertainment and directing and puppetry.

  • By Anonym

    I've always been fascinated by physics and cosmology. It gets more and more scary the older you get.
