Physics has the cutest words.
To the extent that we even understand string theory, it may imply a massive number of possible different universes with different laws of physics in each universe, and there may be no way of distinguishing between them or saying why the laws of physics are the way they are. And if I can predict anything, then I haven't explained anything.
Lawrence M. Krauss
The paradigm of physics - with its interplay of data, theory and prediction - is the most powerful in science.
Hard to be a physics major at Rice University if you have flunked calculus.
Understanding how DNA transmits all it knows about cancer, physics, dreaming and love will keep man searching for some time.
David R. Brower
I do not keep up with the details of particle physics.
I'm the son of an everyman. My father is a teacher. He teaches physics at a boys' school in Sydney.
The standard model of particle physics describes forces and particles very well, but when you throw gravity into the equation, it all falls apart. You have to fudge the figures to make it work.
I am fascinated by quantum physics.
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.
Unlike physics, economists don't settle things. There seems to be plenty of room for different conclusions that are still accepted in the academy.
If someone is interested in medicine and also in physics and they like working with people and communicate well with others, I would strongly encourage them.
We were making the first step out of the age of chemistry and physics, and into the age of biology.
I took physics, and lo and behold, there's a lot of physics in 'Lost.' I think for most people, liberal arts educations are more abstract, but for me, it's been a chance to apply the things I've learned more directly. I also took some Folklore and Mythology classes, and I think that a lot of that influenced me.
At school I briefly wanted to be a palaeontologist, but I was no good at chemistry and physics.
When I was a student, the laws of physics were regarded as completely off limits. The job of the scientist, we were told, is to discover the laws and apply them, not inquire into their provenance.
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.
Quantum physics is one of the hardest things to understand intuitively, because essentially the whole point is that our classical picture is wrong.
The growth of technology is such that it is not possible today for a nuclear physicist to switch into medical physics without training. The field is now much more technical. More training is needed to do the job.
Either theology is pure nonsense, a subject with no content, or else theology must ultimately become a branch of physics.
There are relatively few experiments in atomic physics these days that don't involve the use of a laser.
Eric Allin Cornell
Music pulled me like a gravitational force. I entered college as a physics major but left as a Bachelor of Music, a degree with the same practical application as, say, one in the History of Chinese Poetry.
Contrary to what professional economists will typically tell you, economics is not a science. All economic theories have underlying political and ethical assumptions, which make it impossible to prove them right or wrong in the way we can with theories in physics or chemistry.
Writing a novel is not at all like riding a bike. Writing a novel is like having to redesign a bike, based on laws of physics that you don't understand, in a new universe. So having written one novel does nothing for you when you have to write the second one.
I've always been fascinated by quantum physics and the possibility of alternate realities.
John F. Kennedy
