  • By Anonym

    My background educationally is physics and economics, and I grew up in sort of an engineering environment - my father is an electromechanical engineer. And so there were lots of engineery things around me.

  • By Anonym

    Observations not only disturb what is to be measured, they produce it.

  • By Anonym

    My wish is to construct a system of sociology on the model of celestial mechanics, physics, and chemistry.

  • By Anonym

    My travels through physics really are the same urges that make me travel through ecology. They are not really different, except that there is an added dimension of seeing ecological destruction and seeing the very life-support system that makes us survive on this planet being destroyed. That makes me do more than just inquire; it compels me to act and to intervene.

  • By Anonym

    No one undertakes research in physics with the intention of winning a prize. It is the joy of discovering something no one knew before.

  • By Anonym

    Nothing is accidental in the universe - this is one of my Laws of Physics - except the entire universe itself, which is Pure Accident, pure divinity.

  • By Anonym

    Now we see evolutionary trends in a variety of areas ranging from atomic and molecular physics through fluid mechanics, chemistry and biology to large scale systems of relevance in environmental and economic sciences

  • By Anonym

    One can't prove that God doesn't exist. But science makes God unnecessary. The laws of physics can explain the universe without the need for a creator.

  • By Anonym

    One of the most beautiful hypotheses ever propounded in physics is ... the Dynamical Theory of Gases

  • By Anonym

    One of the most beautiful papers in physics that I know of is yours in the American Journal of Physics.

  • By Anonym

    One thing they don't tell you about doing experimental physics is that sometimes you must work under adverse conditions... like a state of sheer terror.

  • By Anonym

    Originally I had planned to revert to nuclear physics there, in particular the structure of the deuteron.

  • By Anonym

    Our knowledge of physics only takes us back so far. Before this instant of cosmic time, all the laws of physics or chemistry are as evanescent as rings of smoke.

  • By Anonym

    Pablo Picasso said, "Art is the lie that tells the truth," and it's not a terribly radical statement. It's always been that you can tell truth through fiction. And this idea also comes from nuclear physics.

  • By Anonym

    ...paranormal phenomena such as apports, prediction, telepathy, dowsing and the like can be explained by an extended physics as potentially real effects.

  • By Anonym

    Physics as we know it will be over in six months.

  • By Anonym

    Physics isn't a religion. If it were, we'd have a much easier time raising money.

  • By Anonym

    Physics has found no straight lines. Instead, the physical universe consists of only waves undulating back and forth allowing for corrections and balance.

  • By Anonym

    Physics as we know it will be over in six months - Max Born

  • By Anonym

    physics explains everything, which we know because anything physics cannot explain does not exist, which we know because whatever exists must be explicable by physics, which we know because physics explains everything. There is something here of the mystical.

  • By Anonym

    Physics grapples with the largest questions the universe presents. Where did the totality of reality come from? Did time have a beginning?

  • By Anonym

    Physics is essentially an intuitive and concrete science. Mathematics is only a means for expressing the laws that govern phenomena.

  • By Anonym

    Physics is simple, but subtle.

  • By Anonym

    Physics is the only profession in which prophecy is not only accurate but routine.

  • By Anonym

    Physics tells us observations can't be predicted absolutely. Rather, there's a range of possible observations each with a different probability.

  • By Anonym

    Politics is more difficult than physics.

  • By Anonym

    Politics follows the lines of physics: every action creates an equal and opposite reaction.

  • By Anonym

    Quantum physics shows us the universe as a dynamic web of connection.

  • By Anonym

    Quantum physics is a bit of a passion of mine. It's extraordinary. There's a branch of mathematics that is based on lunacy, and that's wonderful.

    • physics quotes
  • By Anonym

    Quantum physics is one of the hardest things to understand intuitively, because essentially the whole point is that our classical picture is wrong.

    • physics quotes
  • By Anonym

    Quantum physics fluctuates all the time. But now the fluctuations are not just particles coming into and out of existence, which happens all the time. It's whole universes coming into and out of existence.

  • By Anonym

    Quantum physics is no longer an abstract theory for specialists. We must now absolutely include it in our education and also in our culture.

  • By Anonym

    Quantum physics thus reveals a basic oneness of the universe.

  • By Anonym

    The atomic hypothesis which had worked so splendidly in Physics breaks down in Psychics.

    • physics quotes
  • By Anonym

    So far as physics is concerned, time's arrow is a property of entropy alone.

  • By Anonym

    String theory is 21 st century physics that fell accidentally into the 20th century.

  • By Anonym

    That which is not measurable is not science. That which is not physics is stamp collecting.

  • By Anonym

    No one knows who wrote the laws of physics or where they come from. Science is based on testable, reproducible evidence, and so far we cannot test the universe before the Big Bang.

  • By Anonym

    Relativity must replace absolutism in the realm of morals as well as in the spheres of physics and biology.

  • By Anonym

    Sci-fi has never really been my bag. But I do believe in a lot of weird things these days, such as synchronicity. Quantum physics suggests it's possible, so why not?

  • By Anonym

    ... The approach of von Neumann and Connes to the use of non-commutative algebra in physics is naive, the situation is much more complicated.

  • By Anonym

    The best that most of us can hope to achieve in physics is simply to misunderstand at a deeper level.

  • By Anonym

    The emphasis on mathematical methods seems to be shifted more towards combinatorics and set theory - and away from the algorithm of differential equations which dominates mathematical physics.

  • By Anonym

    The laws of Congress and the laws of physics have grown increasingly divergent, and the laws of physics are not likely to yield.

  • By Anonym

    The more I learn of physics, the more I am drawn to metaphysics.

  • By Anonym

    The more physics you have the less engineering you need.

    • physics quotes
  • By Anonym

    The physics of the 21st century shall deal essentially with non-spatial matter and non-spatial mechanics.

  • By Anonym

    The possibilities that are suggested in quantum physics tell us that everything that we're looking at may not be in fact there, so the underlying nature of being is weird.

  • By Anonym

    There are no accidents or coincidences in life - everything is synchronicity - because everything has a frequency. It's simply the physics of life and the universe in action.

  • By Anonym

    There are relatively few experiments in atomic physics these days that don't involve the use of a laser.
