physics picture quotes


Picture quote by Albert Einstein about energy

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. ⏤ Albert Einstein


Picture quote by Albert Einstein about relativity

Relativity applies to physics, not ethics. ⏤ Albert Einstein


Picture quote by Neale Donald Walsch about physics

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. ⏤ Neale Donald Walsch


Picture quote by Ernest Rutherford about science

All science is either physics or stamp collecting. ⏤ Ernest Rutherford

It's not magic! It's physics. The speed of the turn is what keeps you upright. It's like a spinning top.

Deborah Bull, dancer

The abstract analysis of the world by mathematics and physics rests on the concepts of space and time.

James J. Gibson, psychologist

An hour or two spent in writing from dictation, another hour or two in reading aloud, a little geography and a little history and a little physics made the day pass busily.

Hudson Stuck, explorer

It is often stated that of all the theories proposed in this century, the silliest is quantum theory. In fact, some say that the only thing that quantum theory has going for it is that it is unquestionably correct.

Michio Kaku,

Science Fiction is not just about the future of space ships travelling to other planets, it is fiction based on science and I am using science as my basis for my fiction, but it's the science of prehistory - palaeontology and archaeology - rather than astronomy or physics.

Jean M. Auel, writer

Louis Armstrong is quite simply the most important person in American music. He is to 20th century music (I did not say jazz) what Einstein is to physics.

Ken Burns, director

Physics investigates the essential nature of the world, and biology describes a local bump. Psychology, human psychology, describes a bump on the bump.

Willard Van Orman Quine,

The object of pure physics is the unfolding of the laws of the intelligible world; the object of pure mathematics that of unfolding the laws of human intelligence.

James Joseph Sylvester, mathematician

The methods of theoretical physics should be applicable to all those branches of thought in which the essential features are expressible with numbers.

Paul Dirac, physicist

In physics, to be in two places at the same time would be a miracle; in politics it seems not merely normal, but natural.

Charles Edison, businessman

My intention was to enroll at McGill University but an unexpected series of events led me to study physics at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology.

Sidney Altman, scientist

I spent eighteen months as a graduate student in physics at Columbia University, waiting unhappily for an opportunity to work in a laboratory and wondering if I should continue in physics.

Sidney Altman, scientist

Eight months later, having left Columbia, I was studying physics in a summer program and working in Colorado when I decided to enroll as a graduate student in biophysics.

Sidney Altman, scientist

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

Eric Allin Cornell, physicist

I tell you the solemn truth, that the doctrine of the Trinity is not so difficult to accept for a working proposition as any one of the axioms of physics.

Henry Adams, historian

The fundamental laws of physics do not describe true facts about reality. Rendered as descriptions of facts, they are false; amended to be true, they lose their explanatory force.

Nancy Cartwright, actress

The divine spark leaps from the finger of God to the finger of Adam, whether it takes ultimate shape in a law of physics or a law of the land, a poem or a policy, a sonata or a mechanical computer.

Alfred Whitney Griswold, educator

Soon I knew the craft of experimental physics was beyond me - it was the sublime quality of patience - patience in accumulating data, patience with recalcitrant equipment - which I sadly lacked.

Abdus Salam, scientist

I'm the son of an everyman. My father is a teacher. He teaches physics at a boys' school in Sydney.

Alex O'Loughlin, actor

Modern science cannot explain why the laws of physics are exactly balanced for animal life to exist.

Robert Lanza, scientist

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

John Avlon, writer

Today's preoccupation with physical theories of everything takes a wrong turn from the purpose of science - to question all things relentlessly. Modern physics has become like Swift's kingdom of Laputa, flying absurdly on an island above the earth and indifferent to what is beneath.

Robert Lanza, scientist

That's absolutely correct and in addition to that life just isn't an accident of the laws of physics. There's a long list of experiments that suggest just the opposite.

Robert Lanza, scientist

I think the answer of course is that space and time are not these hard external objects. Again we're, scientists have been building from one side of nature (physics) without considering the other side (life in consciousness). Neither side exists without the other. They cannot be divorced from one another or else there is no reality.

Robert Lanza, scientist

I think it's science and physics are just starting to learn from all these experiments. These experiments have been carried out hundreds and hundreds of times in all sorts of ways that no physicist really questions the end point. I think that these experiments are very clearly telling us that consciousness is limitless and the ultimate reality.

Robert Lanza, scientist

You watch an old 'Jeopardy!' and the categories alone are very plain. 'Poetry,' or 'Movies,' or 'Physics.' If you watch it now, though, there'll be a theme board where the categories are all Hitchcock movies. Lots more jokes, lots more high-concept categories and questions.

Ken Jennings, celebrity

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, actor

It is just physics - who can argue with Newton and the first law of thermodynamics?

Mark Hyman,

Magnetism, as you recall from physics class, is a powerful force that causes certain items to be attracted to refrigerators.

Dave Barry, journalist

There are children playing in the streets who could solve some of my top problems in physics, because they have modes of sensory perception that I lost long ago.

J. Robert Oppenheimer, physicist

The observer, when he seems to himself to be observing a stone, is really, if physics is to be believed, observing the effects of the stone upon himself.

Bertrand Russell, philosopher

In science, "fact" can only mean "confirmed to such a degree that it would be perverse to withhold provisional assent." I suppose that apples might start to rise tomorrow, but the possibility does not merit equal time in physics classrooms.

Stephen Jay Gould, scientist

They can shout down the head of the physics department at Cal Tech.

James Stockdale, soldier

Nevertheless, if I have at times been able to make original contributions in the accelerator field, I cannot help feeling that to a certain extent my slightly amateur approach in physics, combined with much practical experience, was an asset.

Simon van der Meer, physicist

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.

Tom Felton, actor

Think of color, pitch, loudness, heaviness, and hotness. Each is the topic of a branch of physics.

Benoit Mandelbrot,

When the weather changes, nobody believes the laws of physics have changed. Similarly, I don't believe that when the stock market goes into terrible gyrations its rules have changed.

Benoit Mandelbrot,

Teaching physics at the University, and more general lecturing to wider audiences has been a major concern.

Antony Hewish, scientist

A careful analysis of the process of observation in atomic physics has shown that the subatomic particles have no meaning as isolated entities, but can only be understood as interconnections between the preparation of an experiment and the subsequent measurement.

Erwin Schrodinger, scientist

Quantum physics thus reveals a basic oneness of the universe.

Erwin Schrodinger, scientist

The verbal interpretation, on the other hand, i.e. the metaphysics of quantum physics, is on far less solid ground. In fact, in more than forty years physicists have not been able to provide a clear metaphysical model.

Erwin Schrodinger, scientist

I do not keep up with the details of particle physics.

Murray Gell-Mann,

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.

Murray Gell-Mann,

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,

Well, I'm leaning probably toward the sciences like physics.

Amy Carter, celebrity

I received my undergraduate degree in engineering in 1939 and a Master of Science degree in mathematical physics in 1941 at Steven Institute of Technology.

Frederick Reines, physicist

Chemistry has been termed by the physicist as the messy part of physics, but that is no reason why the physicists should be permitted to make a mess of chemistry when they invade it.

Frederick Soddy, scientist

I had no new ideas on the physics we might learn, and I could not compete with the younger generation.

Jack Steinberger, physicist

Physics is nothing but the ABC's. Nature is an equation with an unknown, a Hebrew word which is written only with consonants to which reason has to add the dots.

Johann Georg Hamann, philosopher

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.

Johannes Vilhelm Jensen, author

Many applications of the coincidence method will therefore be found in the large field of nuclear physics, and we can say without exaggeration that the method is one of the essential tools of the modern nuclear physicist.

Walther Bothe, physicist

As for the forces, electromagnetism and gravity we experience in everyday life. But the weak and strong forces are beyond our ordinary experience. So in physics, lots of the basic building blocks take 20th- or perhaps 21st-century equipment to explore.

Edward Witten, mathematician

Even before string theory, especially as physics developed in the 20th century, it turned out that the equations that really work in describing nature with the most generality and the greatest simplicity are very elegant and subtle.

Edward Witten, mathematician

Quantum mechanics brought an unexpected fuzziness into physics because of quantum uncertainty, the Heisenberg uncertainty principle.

Edward Witten, mathematician

So Whitehead's metaphysics doesn't fit very well on to physics as we understand the process of the world.

John Polkinghorne, physicist

God does not play dice with the universe.

Albert Einstein, physicist

I tend to approach things from a physics framework. And physics teaches you to reason from first principles rather than by analogy.

Elon Musk, entrepreneur

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.

Elon Musk, entrepreneur

Physics is really figuring out how to discover new things that are counterintuitive, like quantum mechanics. It's really counterintuitive.

Elon Musk, entrepreneur

I went to Princeton specifically to study physics.

Jeff Bezos, businessman

I crave and seek a natural explanation of all phenomena upon this earth, but the word 'natural' to me implies more than mere chemistry and physics. The birth of a baby and the blooming of a flower are natural events, but the laboratory methods forever fail to give us the key to the secret of either.

John Burroughs, author

Everything is physics and math.

Katherine Johnson, mathematician

Old Newtonian physics claimed that things have an objective reality separate from our perception of them. Quantum physics, and particularly Heisenberg's Uncertainty Principle, reveal that, as our perception of an object changes, the object itself literally changes.

Marianne Williamson, author

I tried out various experiments described in treatises on physics and chemistry, and the results were sometimes unexpected. At times, I would be encouraged by a little unhoped-for success; at others, I would be in the deepest despair because of accidents and failures resulting from my inexperience.

Marie Curie, scientist

I study myself more than any other subject. That is my metaphysics, that is my physics.

Michel de Montaigne, philosopher

Carl Sagan spoke fluently between biology and geology and astrophysics and physics. If you move fluently across those boundaries, you realize that science is everywhere; science is not something you can step around or sweep under the rug.

Neil deGrasse Tyson, astrophysicist

I try to show the public that chemistry, biology, physics, astrophysics is life. It is not some separate subject that you have to be pulled into a corner to be taught about.

Neil deGrasse Tyson, astrophysicist

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

Neil deGrasse Tyson, astrophysicist

I don't comment on the physics errors of 'Star Wars,' all right. I just - you let that one go.

Neil deGrasse Tyson, astrophysicist

I never got into 'Star Wars.' Maybe because they made no attempt to portray real physics. At all.

Neil deGrasse Tyson, astrophysicist

Man can be understood only by ascending from physics, chemistry, biology, and geology. In other words, he is first of all a cosmic problem.

Pierre Teilhard de Chardin, philosopher

Without renouncing the support of physics, it is possible for the physiology of the senses, not only to pursue its own course of development, but also to afford to physical science itself powerful assistance.

Ernst Mach, physicist

I think equation guessing might be the best method to proceed to obtain the laws for the part of physics which is presently unknown. Yet, when I was much younger, I tried this equation guessing, and I have seen many students try this, but it is very easy to go off in wildly incorrect and impossible directions.

Richard P. Feynman, physicist

There is nothing that living things do that cannot be understood from the point of view that they are made of atoms acting according to the laws of physics.

Richard P. Feynman, physicist

Einstein's gravitational theory, which is said to be the greatest single achievement of theoretical physics, resulted in beautiful relations connecting gravitational phenomena with the geometry of space; this was an exciting idea.

Richard P. Feynman, physicist

Physics has a history of synthesizing many phenomena into a few theories.

Richard P. Feynman, physicist

When I was a young man, Dirac was my hero. He made a breakthrough, a new method of doing physics. He had the courage to simply guess at the form of an equation, the equation we now call the Dirac equation, and to try to interpret it afterwards.

Richard P. Feynman, physicist

I decided to sell my drawings. However, I didn't want people to buy my drawings because the professor of physics isn't supposed to be able to draw - isn't that wonderful - so I made up a false name.

Richard P. Feynman, physicist

We're always, by the way, in fundamental physics, always trying to investigate those things in which we don't understand the conclusions. After we've checked them enough, we're okay.

Richard P. Feynman, physicist

It always seems odd to me that the fundamental laws of physics, when discovered, can appear in so many different forms that are not apparently identical at first, but, with a little mathematical fiddling, you can show the relationship.

Richard P. Feynman, physicist

Often one postulates that a priori, all states are equally probable. This is not true in the world as we see it. This world is not correctly described by the physics which assumes this postulate.

Richard P. Feynman, physicist

Atoms are very special: they like certain particular partners, certain particular directions, and so on. It is the job of physics to analyze why each one wants what it wants.

Richard P. Feynman, physicist

From the point of view of basic physics, the most interesting phenomena are, of course, in the new places, the places where the rules do not work - not the places where they do work! That is the way in which we discover new rules.

Richard P. Feynman, physicist

Science is beautiful when it makes simple explanations of phenomena or connections between different observations. Examples include the double helix in biology and the fundamental equations of physics.

Stephen Hawking, scientist

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

Stephen Hawking, scientist

Most people don't have time to master the very mathematical details of theoretical physics.

Stephen Hawking, scientist

Theoretical physics is one of the few fields in which being disabled is no handicap - it is all in the mind.

Stephen Hawking, scientist

My father was a research scientist in tropical medicine, so I always assumed I would be a scientist, too. I felt that medicine was too vague and inexact, so I chose physics.

Stephen Hawking, scientist

Philosophers have not kept up with modern developments in science. Particularly physics.

Stephen Hawking, scientist

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.

William Shatner, actor

I was so pleased to be at university to do physics and mathematics.

John Henry Carver, physicist

My latter schooldays and my university days were during the war, when science - physics, in particular - was a very important and glamorous subject. A lot of us felt that if we couldn't get into science, we might try engineering or medicine.

John Henry Carver, physicist

How many of you have broken no laws this month? That's the kind of society I want to build. I want a guarantee - with physics and mathematics, not with laws - that we can give ourselves real privacy of personal communications.

John Gilmore, activist

Physics is becoming too difficult for the physicists.

David Hilbert, mathematician

The violent reaction on the recent development of modern physics can only be understood when one realises that here the foundations of physics have started moving; and that this motion has caused the feeling that the ground would be cut from science.

Werner Heisenberg, physicist

It is impossible to trap modern physics into predicting anything with perfect determinism because it deals with probabilities from the outset.

Arthur Eddington, scientist

I am now convinced that theoretical physics is actually philosophy.

Max Born, mathematician

What I am going to tell you about is what we teach our physics students in the third or fourth year of graduate school... It is my task to convince you not to turn away because you don't understand it. You see my physics students don't understand it... That is because I don't understand it. Nobody does.

Richard P. Feynman, physicist

Physics isn't the most important thing. Love is.

Richard P. Feynman, physicist

Subatomic particles do not exist but rather show 'tendencies to exist', and atomic events do not occur with certainty at definite times and in definite ways, but rather show 'tendencies to occur'.
