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.
Since Einstein developed his theory of relativity, and Rutherford and Bohr revolutionised physics, our picture of the world has radically changed.
A. N. Wilson
Flying was great. You have to think fast. You have to develop intuition about the physics of air moving quickly over a surface.
Children need to be exploring their physical world. They need to be learning the fundamental laws of physics by manipulating objects.
The laws of business physics have been broken in terms of how many customers you can acquire and how fast. No one in history has ever acquired 450 million customers in the same amount of time that WhatsApp did.
Physics is based on the assumption that certain fundamental features of nature are constant.
I do theoretical particle physics. We're trying to understand the most basic structure of matter. And the way you do that is you have to look at really small distances. And to get to small distances, you need high energies.
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
Physics has the cutest words.
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.
A. P. J. Abdul Kalam
