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. - George Pólya
Time is a strange phenomenon that understands the physics of our world, but never the chemistry of it - Vishwanath S J
Assessing existence while failing to embrace the insights of modern physics would be like wrestling in the dark with an unknown opponent. - Brian Greene
Geography is just physics slowed down, with a couple of trees stuck in it. - Terry Pratchett
Take a child & teach him physics his first 7 grades of education, I submit he'd excel to a savant-like level. Imagine adult focus for 7 yrs. - Ace Antonio Hall
Mathematics began to seem too much like puzzle solving. Physics is puzzle solving, too, but of puzzles created by nature, not by the mind of man. - Maria Goeppert Mayer
Our civil rights have no dependence upon our religious opinions more than our opinions in physics or geometry. - Thomas Jefferson
The Universe is a big ship and its captain is the Laws of Physics! The bad news is that there seems to be no safe harbour to dock and no lifeboats if we sink! - Mehmet Murat ildan
What is especially striking and remarkable is that in fundamental physics a beautiful or elegant theory is more likely to be right than a theory that is inelegant. - Murray Gell-Mann
Now he has departed from this strange world a little ahead of me. That means nothing. People like us, who believe in physics, know that the distinction between past, present, and future is only a stubbornly persistent illusion. - Albert Einstein
There is no democracy in physics. We can't say that some second-rate guy has as much right to opinion as Fermi. - Luis Walter Alvarez
Physics is like acne. The more you scratch, the more it expands.... - Shikha Kaul
It's because somebody knows something about it that we can't talk about physics. It's the things that nobody knows anything about we can discuss. - Richard Feynman
It is impossible to trap modern physics into predicting anything with perfect determinism because it deals with probabilities from the outset. - Sir Arthur Eddington
Physics advances by accepting absurdities. Its history is one of unbelievable ideas proving to be true. - Rivka Galchen
Theology, philosophy, metaphysics, and quantum physics are merely ways for God to have his smart people believe in him - Jeremy Aldana
‎your first thought would send the power of Quantum physics into a hive of activity. your first thought, would inevitably become the destiny of the day - Andre Jordan
It is now quite lawful for a Catholic woman to avoid pregnancy by a resort to mathematics, though she is still forbidden to resort to physics or chemistry. - H. L. Mencken
A technique succeeds in mathematical physics, not by a clever trick, or a happy accident, but because it expresses some aspect of a physical truth.
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
When I was young, I thought it is thunder that kills people. But when I learnt physics in the high school, I discovered that it is rather the lightning that does the killing. The voice of the thunder itself is just a noise. The lightning is the poise! - Israelmore Ayivor
When you begin to actively participate in the creation of your life, there is never an end, even in death, for physics tells us that nothing is ever created nor destroyed, merely transformed. - Stephen Richards
No, this trick won't work... How on earth are you ever going to explain in terms of chemistry and physics so important a biological phenomenon as first love? - Albert Einstein
All science is either physics or stamp collecting. - Ernest Rutherford
Opposites attract in physics. In life, like attracts like. Kindness attracts kindness. Greed attracts greed. Love attracts love. If you don't like what you're attracting, change who you are. - Connie R. Clay
There are three laws that govern our universe - laws of physics, laws of nature, and spiritual laws. Like the laws of physics and nature, spiritual laws are just as precise as any mathematics equation. - Truman Massey
Physics is becoming so unbelievably complex that it is taking longer and longer to train a physicist. It is taking so long, in fact, to train a physicist to the place where he understands the nature of physical problems that he is already too old to solve them. - Eugene Paul Wigner
A consistent pursuit of classical physics forces a transformation in the very heart of that physics.
We could call order by the name of God, but it would be an impersonal God. There's not much personal about the laws of physics. - Stephen Hawking
You can't change physics; but you can ride it like a bull. - Brian Bennudriti
[When asked by a student if he believes in any gods]Oh, no. Absolutely not... The biggest advantage to believing in God is you don't have to understand anything, no physics, no biology. I wanted to understand. - James D. Watson
In physics, your solution should convince a reasonable person. In math, you have to convince a person who's trying to make trouble. Ultimately, in physics, you're hoping to convince Nature. And I've found Nature to be pretty reasonable. - Frank Wilczek
Time and suffering are inseperable. In life, as in physics, both are the common denominator of all experiences. - Christopher Dutton
Since the beginning of physics, symmetry considerations have provided us with an extremely powerful and useful tool in our effort to understand nature. Gradually they have become the backbone of our theoretical formulation of physical laws. - Tsung-Dao Lee
This change in the conception of reality is the most profound and the most fruitful that physics has experienced since the time of .{Referring to James Clerk Maxwell's contributions to physics} Albert Einstein - Newton
With practice, INTJs become skilled at nodding and making responsive noises at appropriate times,while internally wondering whether dolphins have language or thinking about how Star Wars breaksthe laws of physics. - Anna Moss
Physics is like sex: sure, it may give some practical results, but that's not why we do it. - Richard Feynman
I would teach children music, physics, and philosophy; but most importantly music, for the patterns in music and all the arts are the keys to learning - Plato
Happy COUPLES are those who have passed both chemistry and physics! - Mohith Agadi
History, Geology, Psychology, Philosophy, Chemistry, Physics, Theology, Mathematics, Technology, Sociology, Biology, and the list goes on and on. If all this body of knowledge exist for human consumption, why would I specialize in only one field? - Allan Amanyire
Metaphysics is not the result of understanding the limitations of physics.It’s rather the result of the limitation in understanding physics. - M.R. Shabanali
But I do not know what to tell myself. Stuart needs "space" and "time," as if this were physics and not a human relationship. - Kathryn Stockett
We live in a Newtonian world of Einsteinian physics ruled by Frankenstein logic. - David Russell
Physics is the science of all the tremendously powerful invisibilities - of magnetism, electricity, gravity, light, sound, cosmic rays. Physics is the science of the mysteries of the universe. How could anyone think it dull?
Physics is to math what sex is to masturbation. - Richard Feynman
Real Martial Arts is Mathematics, Physics, Poetry; Meditation in Action - Soke Behzad Ahmadi
Einstein...even failed physics once, but he'd never thought of giving up school to make a living. - Orhan Pamuk
In physics, you don't have to go around making trouble for yourself - nature does it for you. - Frank Wilczek
Culture makes lies plausible through exposure to time. It makes prejudice seem like physics intergenerationally. It is therefore the most dangerous opponent of philosophy, because it feels the most credible to the average person. - Stefan Molyneux
We study biology, physics, movements of glaciers... Where are the classes on envy, feeling wronged, despair, bitterness... - Alain de Botton
If you're teaching, say, physics, there's no point in persuading a student that you're right. You want to encourage them to find out what the truth is, which is probably that you're wrong. - Noam Chomsky
I think that modern physics has definitely decided in favor of . In fact the smallest units of matter are not physical objects in the ordinary sense; they are forms, ideas which can be expressed unambiguously only in mathematical language. Werner Heisenberg - Plato
If you were standing in the path of the beam, you would obviously die pretty quickly. You wouldn't really die of anything, in the traditional sense. You would just stop being biology and start being physics. - Randall Munroe
As chemists, we must rename [our] scheme and insert the symbols Ba, La, Ce in place of Ra, Ac, Th. As nuclear chemists closely associated with physics, we cannot yet convince ourselves to make this leap, which contradicts all previous experience in nuclear physics. - Otto Hahn
When the conventional wisdom of physics seemed to conflict with an elegant theory of his, Einstein was inclined to question that wisdom rather than his theory, often to have his stubbornness rewarded. - Walter Isaacson
Mankind will begin to recover the moment we take art as seriously as physics, chemistry, or money. - Ernst Levy
Newton's laws of physics can rarely be applied to the real world. There is more to life than cause and effect. Things just aren't that simple - Amy Zhang
Physics isn't the most important thing. Love is. - Richard Feynman
People like us, who believe in physics, know that the distinction between past, present, and future is only a stubbornly persistent illusion. - Albert Einstein
physics can be taught , love cant , learn it while you can , earn it when ever possible . - ganeshsaidheeraj
Free will is the sensation of making a choice. The sensation is real, but the choice seems illusory. Laws of physics determine the future. - Brian Greene
In fact a favourite problem of [John Tyndall] is—Given the molecular forces in a mutton chop, deduce Hamlet or Faust therefrom. He is confident that the Physics of the Future will solve this easily. - Thomas Henry Huxley
Physics is mathematical not because we know so much about the physical world, but because we know so little; it is only its mathematical properties that we can discover. - Bertrand Russell
