Quote of the Day
To the Master's honor all must turn, each in its track, without a sound, forever tracing Newton's ground.
I'm not smart, but I like to observe. Millions saw the apple fall, but Newton was the one who asked why.
There is no need to worry about mere size. We do not necessarily respect a fat man more than a thin man. Sir Isaac Newton was very much smaller than a hippopotamus, but we do not on that account value him less.
Nature and nature's laws lay hid in the night. God said, Let Newton be! and all was light!
Millions saw the apple fall, but Newton was the one who asked why.
I trust Winsor and Newton and I paint directly upon it.
I like to undress women - not to dress them. You know, like Manet's 'Olympia' or Helmut Newton's photographs - naked women with shoes. This is what I am trying to do.
I love Thandie Newton. I love her fashion sense as she is just really classic.
I think Newton would be the greatest scientist who ever lived.
For relaxation, I like to figure skate. Being on the ice and spinning and jumping, I feel very close to nature. In particular, I feel very close to Newton's laws of motion. On the ice, you can experience Newton's laws of motion in their purest, most elegant form.
The birth of science as we know it arguably began with Isaac Newton's formulation of the laws of gravitation and motion. It is no exaggeration to say that physics was reborn in the early 20th-century with the twin revolutions of quantum mechanics and the theory of relativity.
Newton, of course, was the inventor of differential calculus so his place in the tale is quite special.
You can't please everyone, and trying to is the kiss of death. I don't care about Wayne Newton's demographics. When I do, I'll know that it's time to quit.
It is just physics - who can argue with Newton and the first law of thermodynamics?
I wanted to be an inventor, whatever I thought that meant then. I guess I was thinking of Edison or maybe James Watt. Or maybe even Newton.
I passed a typing test and became a member of the staff of Rear Adm. Newton.
No one intuitively understands quantum mechanics because all of our experience involves a world of classical phenomena where, for example, a baseball thrown from pitcher to catcher seems to take just one path, the one described by Newton's laws of motion. Yet at a microscopic level, the universe behaves quite differently.
Lawrence M. Krauss
I did The Newton Boys and during the whole process of making the film, I may have spent a week in Los Angeles.
Years later I made a movie with Wayne Newton, who has Arabians.
Could we have entered into the mind of Sir Isaac Newton, and have traced all the steps by which he produced his great works, we might see nothing very extraordinary in the process.
Once Ptolemy and Plato, yesterday Newton, today Einstein, and tomorrow new faiths, new beliefs, and new dimensions.
In 50 years - or 20 years, or 200 years - our current epistemic horizon (the Big Bang, roughly) may look as parochial as the horizon Newton had to settle for in his day, but no doubt there will still be good questions whose answers elude us.
I had the idea that it would be wonderful to be a physicist or a mathematician maybe 500 years ago around the time of Newton when there were really fundamental things just lying around to be discovered.
The classical example of a successful research programme is Newton's gravitational theory: possibly the most successful research programme ever.
I'd like to think the scientists need us - but do they? Did Newton need Blake?
Ampere was the Newton of Electricity.
James C. Maxwell
The greatest mathematicians, as Archimedes, Newton, and Gauss, always united theory and applications in equal measure.
Las Vegas without Wayne Newton is like Disneyland without Mickey Mouse.
If one looks at the works of Newton to Einstein, they were never scientists in the way modernity understands the term.
Curiously, a principle affects your life whether you are aware of it or not. For instance, the principle of gravity was working long before the apple ever fell on Newton's head. But once it did, and he understood it, then we as a society were free to harness this principle to create, among other things, airline flight.
