Politics is a lot tougher than physics.
– Burton Richter
I’m a big believer in quantum physics, which says that the universe is more incredible and mysterious than any of us can imagine, which is my way of saying, ‘Anything is possible, including angels.’
– Caroline Leavitt
Before the discovery of quantum mechanics, the framework of physics was this: If you tell me how things are now, I can then use the laws of physics to calculate, and hence predict, how things will be later.
– Brian Greene
Darwinism doesn’t explain where gravity comes from. It doesn’t explain where thermodynamics comes from. It doesn’t explain where the laws of physics come from. It doesn’t explain where matter came from.
– Ben Stein
It should be possible to explain the laws of physics to a barmaid.
– Albert Einstein
The whole edifice of modern physics is built up on the fundamental hypothesis of the atomic or molecular constitution of matter.
– C. V. Raman
Teaching physics at the University, and more general lecturing to wider audiences has been a major concern.
– Antony Hewish
Yeah, I am a guy working on physics outside of academia. But I’m nowhere near Einstein’s caliber.
– Antony Garrett Lisi
I’ve always really been into science, and in the last five years I’ve gotten into theoretical physics and the origins of the universe.
– Adam Pascal
The law of right-left symmetry was used in classical physics but was not of any great practical importance there. One reason for this derives from the fact that right-left symmetry is a discrete symmetry, unlike rotational symmetry, which is continuous.
– Chen-Ning Yang
One of the bedrock principles of physics is the conservation of energy. In this universe, energy can be neither created nor destroyed.
– Edward M. Lerner
Hard to be a physics major at Rice University if you have flunked calculus.
– Elizabeth Moon
Regardless of any deviations, it was clear I was supposed to end up in math and physics.
– Edward Witten
I never got into ‘Star Wars.’ Maybe because they made no attempt to portray real physics. At all.
– Neil deGrasse Tyson
Ever since I was a kid, I’ve had an enormous interest in the sciences – everything from quantum physics to anthropology.
– Micky Dolenz
In 1948 I was appointed to a Lectureship in Physics and in 1949 elected to a Fellowship at Trinity College.
– Martin Ryle
All science is either physics or stamp collecting.
– Ernest Rutherford
As an undergraduate, I did maths and physics. That doesn’t make me a scientist. So I try to read and understand and talk to scientists.
– Nicholas Stern
I went to the University of Washington as a physics and astronomy major. My other interest, of course, was aviation. I always wanted to be a pilot. And if you’re going to fly airplanes, the best place to be is the Air Force.
– Michael P. Anderson
But even physics cannot be defined from an atomic topography.
– Michael Polanyi
I was always good at math and science and physics.
– Daniel J. Evans
It has become part of the accepted wisdom to say that the twentieth century was the century of physics and the twenty-first century will be the century of biology.
– Freeman Dyson
Of course the word chaos is used in rather a vague sense by a lot of writers, but in physics it means a particular phenomenon, namely that in a nonlinear system the outcome is often indefinitely, arbitrarily sensitive to tiny changes in the initial condition.
– Murray Gell-Mann
The fundamental laws necessary for the mathematical treatment of a large part of physics and the whole of chemistry are thus completely known, and the difficulty lies only in the fact that application of these laws leads to equations that are too complex to be solved.
– Paul Dirac
If anybody says he can think about quantum physics without getting giddy, that only shows he has not understood the first thing about them.
– Niels Bohr
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.
Physics is the only profession in which prophecy is not only accurate but routine.
There are relatively few experiments in atomic physics these days that don’t involve the use of a laser.
– Eric Allin Cornell
Most of physics is about energy, and physicists understand inefficiencies. I wanted to write a book about our energy options in a neutral, human-accessible form.
– David J. C. MacKay
No inanimate object is ever fully determined by the laws of physics and chemistry.
