Dead is when the chemists take over the subject.

— Arthur Leonard Schawlow

The most breathtaking Arthur Leonard Schawlow quotes that are little-known but priceless

But the context of religion is a great background for doing science.

In the words of Psalm 19, 'The heavens declare the glory of God and the firmament showeth his handiwork'. Thus scientific research is a worshipful act, in that it reveals more of the wonders of God's creation.


It seems to me that when confronted with the marvels of life and the universe, one must ask why and not just how. The only possible answers are religious. . . . I find a need for God in the universe and in my own life.


Anything worth doing is worth doing twice, the first time quick and dirty and the second time the best way you can.


To do suc cessful research, you don't need to know everything, you just, need to know one thing that isn't known.


The most successful scientists are not the most talented.

But they are the ones who are impelled by curiosity. They've got to know what the answer is


Anything will lase if you hit it hard enough.
