quote by John B. Watson

Psychology, as the behaviorist views it, is a purely objective, experimental branch of natural science which needs introspection as little as do the sciences of chemistry and physics.... The position is taken here that the behavior of man and the behavior of animals must be considered in the same plane.

— John B. Watson

Unbelievable Physical Science quotations

Physical science quote Everything is energy and that's all there is to it. Match the frequency of the r

Everything is energy and that's all there is to it. Match the frequency of the reality you want and you cannot help but get that reality. It can be no other way. This is not philosophy. This is physics.

I often say that when you can measure what you are speaking about, and express it in numbers, you know something about it; but when you cannot measure it, when you cannot express it in numbers, your knowledge is of a meagre and unsatisfactory kind.

All of physics is either impossible or trivial.

It is impossible until you understand it, and then it becomes trivial.

Physical science quote I think people who vibrate at the same frequency, vibrate toward each other. The

I think people who vibrate at the same frequency, vibrate toward each other. They call it, in science, sympathetic vibrations.

I learned very early the difference between knowing the name of something and knowing something.

There is nothing new to be discovered in physics now.

All that remains is more and more precise measurement.

Not only is the Universe stranger than we think, it is stranger than we can think.

Physics is to mathematics what sex is to masturbation.

I am, somehow, less interested in the weight and convolutions of Einstein’s brain than in the near certainty that people of equal talent have lived and died in cotton fields and sweatshops.

Physical science quote Strength does not come from physical capacity, It comes from an indomitable will

Strength does not come from physical capacity, It comes from an indomitable will.

Vanity of science. Knowledge of physical science will not console me for ignorance of morality in time of affliction, but knowledge of morality will always console me for ignorance of physical science.

Science is the belief in the ignorance of experts.

Mathematics is the cheapest science. Unlike physics or chemistry, it does not require any expensive equipment. All one needs for mathematics is a pencil and paper.

Physical science quote If you put limits on everything you do, physical or anything else, it will sprea

If you put limits on everything you do, physical or anything else, it will spread into your work and life. There are no limits. There are only plateaus and you must go beyond them.

What I thought was unreal now, for me, seems in some ways to be more real than what I think to be real, which seems now to be unreal

The grounding in natural sciences which I obtained in the course of my medical studies, including preliminary examinations in botany, zoology, physics, and chemistry, was to become decisive in determining the trend of my literary work.

Physical science quote No man has the right to be an amateur in the matter of physical training. It is

No man has the right to be an amateur in the matter of physical training. It is a shame for a man to grow old without seeing the beauty and strength of which his body is capable.

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

The miracle of the appropriateness of the language of mathematics for the formulation of the laws of physics is a wonderful gift which we neither understand nor deserve.

I like physics. I think it is the best science out of all three of them, because generally it's more useful. You learn about speed and velocity and time, and that's all clever stuff.

Physical science quote Relativity applies to physics, not ethics.

Relativity applies to physics, not ethics.

When you can measure what you are speaking about, and express it in numbers, you know something about it.

Creativity is essential to particle physics, cosmology, and to mathematics, and to other fields of science, just as it is to its more widely acknowledged beneficiaries - the arts and humanities.

"Integrative" simply means that this approach attempts to include as many important truths from as many disciplines as possible-from East as well as the West, from premodern and modern and postmodern, from the hard sciences of physics to the tender sciences of spirituality.

Physical science quote What is now proved was once only imagined.

What is now proved was once only imagined.

A common sense interpretation of the facts suggests that a superintellect has monkeyed with physics.

It is shameful that there are so few women in science.

[...] In China there are many, many women in physics. There is a misconception in America that women scientists are all dowdy spinsters. This is the fault of men. In Chinese society, a woman is valued for what she is, and men encourage her to accomplishments yet she remains eternally feminine.

Boxing is a science. You don't just walk into a gym and start punching. Fighters are born with differences in physical ability, but you also see a big difference in their skills. That's the trainers influence at work.

Physical science quote Quantum physics tells us that nothing that is observed is unaffected by the obse

Quantum physics tells us that nothing that is observed is unaffected by the observer. That statement, from science, holds an enormous and powerful insight. It means that everyone sees a different truth, because everyone is creating what they see.

I think physicists are the Peter Pans of the human race.

They never grow up and they keep their curiosity.

I may finally call attention to the probability that the association of paternal and maternal chromosomes in pairs and their subsequent separation during the reducing division as indicated above may constitute the physical basis of the Mendelian law of heredity.

My origami creations, in accordance with the laws of nature, require the use of geometry, science, and physics. They also encompass religion, philosophy, and biochemistry. Overall, I want you to discover the joy of creation by your own handthe possibility of creation from paper is infinite.

Physical science quote If you always put limits on everything you do, physical or anything else, it wil

If you always put limits on everything you do, physical or anything else, it will spread into your work and into your life. There are no limits. There are only plateaus, and you must not stay there, you must go beyond them.

Atlantis was a highly evolved civilization where the sciences and arts were far more advanced than one might guess. Atlantis was technologically advanced in genetic engineering, computer science, inter-dimensional physics, and artistically developed with electronic music and crystal art forms.

Thanks to the high standing which science has for so long attain and to the impartiality of the Nobel Prize Committee, the Nobel Prize for Physics is rightly considered everywhere as the highest reward within the reach of workers in Natural Philosophy.

All religions, arts and sciences are branches of the same tree.

All these aspirations are directed toward ennobling man's life, lifting it from the sphere of mere physical existence and leading the individual towards freedom.
