Early-twentieth-century abstraction is art's version of Einstein's Theory of Relativity. It's the idea that changed everything everywhere: quickly, decisively, for good.
To me, what makes physics physics is that experiment is intimately connected to theory. It's one whole.
The Dell Theory of Conflict Prevention argues that no two countries that are both part of the same global supply chain will ever fight a war as long as they are each part of that supply chain.
I don't really believe in the auteur theory.
Science is organized common sense where many a beautiful theory was killed by an ugly fact.
Obama, startled that components of government behave as interest groups, seems utterly unfamiliar with public choice theory. It demystifies and de-romanticizes politics by applying economic analysis - how incentives influence behavior - to government.
Selling Atari when I did - I think that's my biggest regret. And I probably should have gotten back heavily into the games business in the late Eighties. But I was operating under this theory at the time that the way to have an interesting life was to reinvent yourself every five or six years.
My theory is this; I'm not a political songwriter. I'm an honest songwriter.
I have a theory that the truth is never told during the nine-to-five hours.
Hunter S. Thompson
The theory seems to be that as long as a man is a failure he is one of God's children, but that as soon as he succeeds he is taken over by the Devil.
H. L. Mencken
The piano is a universal instrument. If you start there, learn your theory and how to read, you can go on to any other instrument.
Eddie Van Halen
The theory of evolution, like the theory of gravity, is a scientific fact.
Neil deGrasse Tyson
If the Confederacy fails, there should be written on its tombstone: Died of a Theory.
My theory on housework is, if the item doesn't multiply, smell, catch fire, or block the refrigerator door, let it be. No one else cares. Why should you?
Here is the real domino theory - gay man to gay man, bisexual man to straight woman, addict mother to newborn baby, they all fall down and someday it will come to you.
I have a theory that burnout is about resentment. And you beat it by knowing what it is you're giving up that makes you resentful.
No theory changes what it is a theory about; man remains what he has always been.
B. F. Skinner
Life is so unlike theory.
String theory has the potential to show that all of the wondrous happenings in the universe - from the frantic dance of subatomic quarks to the stately waltz of orbiting binary stars; from the primordial fireball of the big bang to the majestic swirl of heavenly galaxies - are reflections of one, grand physical principle, one master equation.
It is an acknowledged truth in philosophy that a just theory will always be confirmed by experiment.
As for everything else, so for a mathematical theory: beauty can be perceived but not explained.
My theory is that the way you cope with the depths will ascertain the heights that you reach - they are intimately connected - and if you have a lust for life, you are also going to have a lust for death.
I am uncompromising to the point of huge dissension in the studio. And it's served me very well. My theory and my philosophy is, 'Compromise breeds mediocrity.' Obviously, you have to pick your battles, and the more success an artist has, the more they want to be involved in their own career, which is not necessarily a good thing.
I'm very moved by chaos theory, and that sense of energy. That quantum physics. We don't really, in Hindu tradition, have a father figure of a God. It's about cosmic energy, a little spark of which is inside every individual as the soul.
In my travels, I also noticed that kids in Thailand like spicy food, and kids in India love curry. I'm hoping to introduce my son, Hudson, to lots of veggies and spices when he's young. I say that before he's started on solid foods, so it could be easier in theory than practice!
A. P. J. Abdul Kalam
