quote by Lev S. Vygotsky

It may be said that the basic characteristic of human behavior in general is that humans personally influence their relations with the environment and through that environment personally change their behavior, subjugating it to their control.

— Lev S. Vygotsky

Fulfilling General Relativity quotations

General relativity quote One loyal friend is worth ten thousand relatives.

One loyal friend is worth ten thousand relatives.

In Einstein's general relativity the structure of space can change but not its topology. Topology is the property of something that doesn't change when you bend it or stretch it as long as you don't break anything.

To revolt is a natural tendency of life.

Even a worm turns against the foot that crushes it. In general, the vitality and relative dignity of an animal can be measured by the intensity of its instinct to revolt.

General relativity quote The people who are meant to be in your life will always gravitate back towards y

The people who are meant to be in your life will always gravitate back towards you, no matter how far they wander.

When forced to summarize the general theory of relativity in one sentence: Time and space and gravitation have no separate existence from matter.

The interest in life does not lie in what people do, nor even in their relations to each other, but largely in the power to communicate with a third party, antagonistic, enigmatic, yet perhaps persuadable, which one may call life in general.

Time travel used to be thought of as just science fiction, but Einstein's general theory of relativity allows for the possibility that we could warp space-time so much that you could go off in a rocket and return before you set out.

General relativity quote People do not buy goods and services. They buy relations, stories and magic.

People do not buy goods and services. They buy relations, stories and magic.

It is generally recognised that women are better than men at languages, personal relations and multi-tasking, but less good at map-reading and spatial awareness. It is therefore not unreasonable to suppose that women might be less good at mathematics and physics.

I like the bad-boy types. Generally the guy I'm attracted to is the guy in the club with all the tattoos and nail polish. He's usually the lead singer in a punk band and plays guitar. But my serious boyfriends are relatively clean-cut, nice guys. So it's strange.

It may be desirable to explain, that by the word operation, we mean any process which alters the mutual relation of two or more things, be this relation of what kind it may. This is the most general definition, and would include all subjects in the universe.

General relativity quote Leadership and learning are indispensable to each other.

Leadership and learning are indispensable to each other.

[Max Planck] was one of the finest people I have ever known.

.. but he really didn't understand physics, [because] during the eclipse of 1919 he stayed up all night to see if it would confirm the bending of light by the gravitational field. If he had really understood [general relativity], he would have gone to bed the way I did

In this relation, then, the proposed government cannot be deemed a national one;

since its jurisdiction extends to certain enumerated objects only, and leaves to the several states, a residuary and inviolable sovereignty over all other objects.

The theory of relativity worked out by Mr.

Einstein, which is in the domain of natural science, I believe can also be applied to the political field. Both democracy and human rights are relative concepts - and not absolute and general.

General relativity quote Where there is love, there is no imposition.

Where there is love, there is no imposition.

Man is a thinking being. The way he thinks is related to society, politics, economics, and history and is also related to very general and universal categories and formal structures. But thought is something other than societal relations.

Einstein's theory of General Relativity has a mathematical structure very similar to Yang-Mills theory.

I think, generally, the flawed anti-hero is much more interesting than the normal hero, and that's really what we're talking about here as it relates to outlaws or renegades.

General relativity quote It is not happy people who are thankful. It is thankful people who are happy.

It is not happy people who are thankful. It is thankful people who are happy.

No matter how hard you try to teach your cat general relativity, you're going to fail.

General relativity is the cornerstone of cosmology and astrophysics.

It has also provided the conceptual basis for string theory and other attempts to unify all the forces of nature in terms of geometrical structures.

It is the function of science to discover the existence of a general reign of order in nature and to find the causes governing this order. And this refers in equal measure to the relations of man - social and political - and to the entire universe as a whole.

General relativity quote People generally see what they look for, and hear what they listen for.

People generally see what they look for, and hear what they listen for.

A Jesuit once wrote a note to Father Arrupe, his superior general, asking him about the relative value of communism, socialism and capitalism. Father Arrupe gave him a lovely reply. He said, "A system is about as good or as bad as the people who use it." People with golden hearts would make capitalism or communism or socialism work beautifully.

An extrapolation of its present rate of growth reveals that in the not too distant future Physical Review will fill bookshelves at a speed exceeding that of light. This is not forbidden by general relativity since no information is being conveyed.

In general, the churches, visited by me often on weekdays.

.. bore for me the same relation to God that billboards did to Coca-Cola; they promoted thirst without quenching it.

General relativity quote Relativity applies to physics, not ethics.

Relativity applies to physics, not ethics.

I can find no warrant for such an appropriation in the Constitution, and I do not believe that the power and duty of the General Government ought to be extended to the relief of individual suffering which is in no manner properly related to the public service or benefit.

The Prophecies of Daniel are all of them related to one another, as if they were but several parts of one general Prophecy, given at several times. The first is the easiest to be understood, and every following Prophecy adds something new to the former.

It is ironic that Einsteins most creative work, the general theory of relativity, should boil down to conceptualizing space as a medium when his original premise [in special relativity] was that no such medium existed[..].

General relativity quote People generally see what they look for, and hear what they listen for.

People generally see what they look for, and hear what they listen for.

Gravitational waves will bring us exquisitely accurate maps of black holes - maps of their space-time. Those maps will make it crystal clear whether or not what were dealing with are black holes as described by general relativity.

Real investment risk is measured not by the percent that a stock may decline in price in relation to the general market in a given period, but by the danger of a loss of quality and earnings power through economic changes or deterioration in management.

Long distance relationships through mobile communication generally becomes poor because of the weak signals and ends up due to jammed networks

General relativity quote Angry is just sad's bodyguard.

Angry is just sad's bodyguard.

It is almost impossible to have a baseless snobbish opinion of the General Theory of Relativity.

In the context of general relativity, space almost is a substance.

It can bend and twist and stretch, and probably the best way to think about space is to just kind of imagine a big piece of rubber that you can pull and twist and bend.

The fate of the physiology of the brain is independent of the truth and falsity of my assertions relative to the laws of the organization of the nervous system, in general, and of the brain in particular, just as the knowledge of the functions of a sense is independent of the knowledge of the structure of its apparatus.

General relativity quote The flower doesn't dream of the bee. It blossoms and the bee comes.

The flower doesn't dream of the bee. It blossoms and the bee comes.

Common to the two geometries is only the general property of one-to-one correspondence, and the rule that this correspondence determines straight lines as shortest lines as well as their relations of intersection.

Einstein, my upset stomach hates your theory [of General Relativity]—it almost hates you yourself! How am I to' provide for my students? What am I to answer to the philosophers?!!

Combining quantum entanglement with wormholes yields mind boggling results about black holes. But I don't trust them until we have a theory of everything which can combine quantum effects with general relativity. i.e. we need to have a full blown string theory resolve this sticky question.

Quantum Mechanics and General Relativity are both accepted as scientific fact even though they're mutually exclusive. Albert Einstein spent the second half of his life searching for a unifying truth that would reconcile the two.

The outstanding feature, however, is the possibility that the velocity-distance relation may represent the de Sitter effect, and hence that numerical data may be introduced into discussions of the general curvature of space.
