Concepts Physics quotes by Ernest Hemingway,
#1. Decadence is a difficult word to use since it has become little more than a term of abuse applied by critics to anything they do not yet understand or which seems to differ from their moral concepts. #Quote by Ernest Hemingway,
Concepts Physics quotes by Ben Aaronovitch
#2. This is why magic is worse even than quantum physics. Because, while both spit in the eye of common sense, I've never yet had a Higgs bosun turn up and try to have a conversation with me. #Quote by Ben Aaronovitch
Concepts Physics quotes by Thomas Pynchon
#3. In the eighteenth century it was often convenient to regard man as a clockwork automaton. In the nineteenth century, with Newtonian physics pretty well assimilated and a lot of work in thermodynamics going on, man was looked on as a heat engine, about 40 per cent efficient. Now in the twentieth century, with nuclear and subatomic physics a going thing, man had become something which absorbs X-rays, gamma rays and neutrons. #Quote by Thomas Pynchon
Concepts Physics quotes by Don DeLillo
#4. California deserves whatever it gets. Californians invented the concept of life-style. This alone warrants their doom. #Quote by Don DeLillo
Concepts Physics quotes by Andrew Lo
#5. Economists suffer from a deep psychological disorder that I call 'physics envy'. We wish that 99 percent of economic behavior could be captured by three simple laws of nature. In fact, economists have 99 laws that capture 3 percent of behavior. Economics is a uniquely human endeavor ... #Quote by Andrew Lo
Concepts Physics quotes by Eckhart Tolle
#6. Identification with your mind creates an opaque screen of concepts, labels, images, words, judgments, and definitions that blocks all true relationship. It comes between you and yourself, between you and your fellow man and woman, between you and nature, between you and God. It is this screen of thought that creates the illusion of separateness, the illusion that there is you and a totally separate 'other.' You then forget the essential fact that, underneath the level of physical appearances and separate forms, you are one with all that is. By 'forget,' I mean that you can no longer feel this oneness as self-evident reality. #Quote by Eckhart Tolle
Concepts Physics quotes by Walter Russell
#7. Meditation transports one from the transient world of matter to the real world of dreamings, visions, and imaginings where idea is and concepts are born. #Quote by Walter Russell
Concepts Physics quotes by Kevin Michel
#8. The more we delve into quantum mechanics the stranger the world becomes; appreciating this strangeness of the world, whilst still operating in that which you now consider reality, will be the foundation for shifting the current trajectory of your life from ordinary to extraordinary. It is the Tao of mixing this cosmic weirdness with the practical and physical, which will allow you to move, moment by moment, through parallel worlds to achieve your dreams. #Quote by Kevin Michel
Concepts Physics quotes by Sigmund Freud
#9. Philosophers stretch the meaning of words until they retain scarcely anything of their original sense. They give the name of "God" to some vague abstraction which they have created for themselves; having done so they can pose before all the world as deists, as believers of God, and they can even boast that they have recognized a higher, purer concept of God, notwithstanding that their God is not nothing more than an insubstantial shadow and no longer the mighty personality of religious doctrines. #Quote by Sigmund Freud
Concepts Physics quotes by Helen Prejean
#10. Nonviolence and nonaggression are generally regarded as interchangeable concepts - King and Gandhi frequently used them that way - but nonviolence, as employed by Gandhi in India and by King in the American South, might reasonably be viewed as a highly disciplined form of aggression. If one defines aggression in the primary dictionary sense of "attack," nonviolent resistance proved to be the most powerful attack imaginable on the powers King and Gandhi were trying to overturn. The writings of both men are filled with references to love as a powerful force against oppression, and while the two leaders were not using the term" force" in the military sense, they certainly regarded nonviolence as a tactical weapon as well as an expression of high moral principle." Susan Jacoby (p. 196) #Quote by Helen Prejean
Concepts Physics quotes by Larry Carlton
#11. My first love in music was jazz, but I like it all," "I reacted emotionally to Art Blakey and, of course, to Joe Pass and Wes Montgomery. I was all of 16 when I had my first guitar lesson with Joe. But I never focused on being a bebop player. I loved the harmony, rhythm and phrasing, but I wanted to apply them to my own concept and sound. #Quote by Larry Carlton
Concepts Physics quotes by Joao Magueijo
#12. It's the process of losing oneself in the jungle that makes science worth doing. #Quote by Joao Magueijo
Concepts Physics quotes by Richard Dawkins
#13. My eyes are constantly wide open to the extraordinary fact of existence. Not just human existence, but the existence of life and how this breathtakingly powerful process, which is natural selection, has managed to take the very simple facts of physics and chemistry and build them up to redwood trees and humans. #Quote by Richard Dawkins
Concepts Physics quotes by Klaus Von Klitzing
#14. Semiconductor research and the Nobel Prize in physics seem to be contradictory since one may come to the conclusion that such a complicated system like a semiconductor is not useful for very fundamental discoveries. #Quote by Klaus Von Klitzing
Concepts Physics quotes by Bell Hooks
#15. Women, even the most oppressed among us, do exercise power. These powers can be used to advance feminist struggle. Forms of power held by exploited and oppressed groups are described in Elizabeth Janeway's important work Powers of the Weak. One of the most significant forms of power held by the weak is "the refusal to accept the definition of oneself that is put forward by the powerful". Janeway call this the "ordered use of the power to disbelieve". She explains:

It is true that one may not have a coherent self-definition to set against the status assigned by the established social mythology, and that is not necessary for dissent. By disbelieving, one will be led toward doubting prescribed codes of behaviour, and as one begins to act in ways that can deviate from the norm in any degree, it becomes clear that in fact there is not just one right way to handle or understand events.

Women need to know that they can reject the powerful's definition of their reality --- that they can do so even if they are poor, exploited, or trapped in oppressive circumstances. They need to know that the exercise of this basic personal power is an act of resistance and strength. Many poor and exploited women, especially non-white women, would have been unable to develop positive self-concepts if they had not exercised their power to reject the powerful's definition of their reality. Much feminist thought reflects women's acceptance of the definition of femaleness put forth #Quote by Bell Hooks
Concepts Physics quotes by Richard Feynman
#16. If instead of arranging the atoms in some definite pattern, again and again repeated, on and on, or even forming little lumps of complexity like the odor of violets, we make an arrangement which is always different from place to place, with different kinds of atoms arranged in many ways, continually changing, not repeating, how much more marvelously is it possible that this thing might behave? Is it possible that that "thing" walking back and forth in front of you, talking to you, is a great glob of these atoms in a very complex arrangement, such that the sheer complexity of it staggers the imagination as to what it can do? When we say we are a pile of atoms, we do not mean we are merely a pile of atoms, because a pile of atoms which is not repeated from one to the other might well have the possibilities which you see before you in the mirror. #Quote by Richard Feynman
Concepts Physics quotes by James D. Watson
#17. [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. #Quote by James D. Watson
Concepts Physics quotes by Walter Isaacson
#18. The Industrial Revolution was based on two grand concepts that were profound in their simplicity. Innovators came up with ways to simplify endeavors by breaking them into easy, small tasks that could be accomplished on assembly lines. Then, beginning in the textile industry, inventors found ways to mechanize steps so that they could be performed by machines, many of them powered by steam engines. Babbage, building on ideas from Pascal and Leibniz, tried to apply these two processes to the production of computations, creating a mechanical precursor to the modern computer. His most significant conceptual leap was that such machines did not have to be set to do only one process, but instead could be programmed and reprogrammed through the use of punch cards. Ada saw the beauty and significance of that enchanting notion, and she also described an even more exciting idea that derived from it: such machines could process not only numbers but anything that could be notated in symbols. #Quote by Walter Isaacson
Concepts Physics quotes by Nick Woodman
#19. If I didn't follow my passion for surfing ... I would have never come up with the concept to make a wrist camera. #Quote by Nick Woodman
Concepts Physics quotes by Fabiola Gianotti
#20. I like the beauty of physics, nature is beautiful, it is my second soul to music. #Quote by Fabiola Gianotti
Concepts Physics quotes by Lawrence M. Krauss
#21. Does this prove that our universe arose from nothing? Of course not. But it does take us one rather large step closer to the plausibility of such a scenario. And it removes one more of the objections that might have been leveled against the argument of creation from nothing as described in the previous chapter. There, "nothing" meant empty but preexisting space combined with fixed and well-known laws of physics. Now the requirement of space has been removed. But, remarkably, as we shall next discuss, even the laws of physics may not be necessary or required. #Quote by Lawrence M. Krauss
Concepts Physics quotes by Lincoln Steffens
#22. Nothing is done. Everything in the world remains to be done or done over. The greatest picture is not yet painted, the greatest play isn't written, the greatest poem is unsung. There isn't in all the world a perfect railroad, nor a good government, nor a sound law. Physics, mathematics, and especially the most advanced and exact of the sciences are being fundamentally revised ... Psychology, economics, and sociology are awaiting a Darwin, whose work in turn is awaiting an Einstein. #Quote by Lincoln Steffens
Concepts Physics quotes by Kiera Goodwin
#23. Buddhists Believe In Reincarnation Buddhists don't believe reincarnation but they believe in rebirth. Reincarnation is about endless and set identity that moves from life to another, having the same emotions and memories with it. While rebirth on the other hand doesn't carry any memories or emotions you had in your past life, it is simply a small inscription of them in what's we called karma. Reincarnation and rebirth are rationally different concepts. Reincarnation is a belief that every person has a soul, and the soul travels to another body once their previous body dies. Rebirth explains that there's no permanent thing in the world. Every living creature is a nonstop accumulation of changing conditions that establish the body and mind. #Quote by Kiera Goodwin
Concepts Physics quotes by Emmanuel Levinas
#24. The contemporary world, scientific, technical, and sensualist, sees itself without exit - that is, without God - not because everything there is permitted and, by the way of technology, possible, but because everything there is equal. The unknown is immediately made familiar [...] The enchantment of sites, hyperbole of metaphorical concepts, the artifice of art, exaltation of ceremonies, the magic of solemnities - everywhere is suspected and denounced a theatrical apparatus, a purely rhetorical transcendence, the game. Vanity of vanities: the echo of our own voices, taken for a response to the few prayers that still remain to us; everywhere we have fallen back upon our own feet, as after the ecstasies of a drug. Except the other whom, in all this boredom, we cannot let go. #Quote by Emmanuel Levinas
Concepts Physics quotes by Yahoo Serious
#25. The obsession required to see a feature through from concept to release is not a rational thing to do with your brief time on this planet. Nor is it something to which an intelligent person should aspire. #Quote by Yahoo Serious
Concepts Physics quotes by James Geary
#26. In the West, people typically gesture in front of themselves when talking about the future. In one study, participants contemplating the future even tended to lean forward, while those recalling the past tended to lean backward. It seems that we're not in a position to decline our inclination to regard the future as something in front of us.

In South America, however, speakers of Aymara gesture behind themselves when talking about the future. Why? In Aymaran culture, the past is ahead because it is already known and can therefore be seen. The future, in contrast, is unknown and can't be seen; therefore, it is located behind the speaker. Aymaran and Western embodied concepts of the past and future are contradictory, yet they are based on identical bodily metaphors. #Quote by James Geary
Concepts Physics quotes by Monk E. Mind
#27. Intelligence is the unlimited ability to conceive of concepts, and arrogance is the belief that one "knows" anything. #Quote by Monk E. Mind
Concepts Physics quotes by Venkatraman Ramakrishnan
#28. My earlier exposure to physics certainly helped me in the use of biophysical techniques like crystallography, the use of computing, calculations, etc. #Quote by Venkatraman Ramakrishnan
Concepts Physics quotes by Koren Zailckas
#29. But in college, we can wear our alcohol abuse as proudly as our university sweatshirts; the two concepts are virtually synonymous. #Quote by Koren Zailckas
Concepts Physics quotes by Bill Gaede
#30. A mathematician says that an electromagnetic wave travels from Andromeda to your eye and that it also extends from Andromeda to your eye. #Quote by Bill Gaede
Concepts Physics quotes by Aleister Crowley
#31. The discovery of radioactivity created a momentary chaos in chemistry and physics; but it soon led to a fuller interpretation of the old ideas. It dispersed many difficulties, harmonized many discords, and yea, more! It shewed the substance of Universe as a simplicity of Light and Life, manners to compose atoms, themselves capable of deeper self-realization through fresh complexities and organizations, each with its own peculiar powers and pleasures, each pursuing its path through the world where all things are possible. #Quote by Aleister Crowley
Concepts Physics quotes by Henry Enfield Roscoe
#32. In the vestibule of the Manchester Town Hall are placed two life-sized marble statues facing each other. One of these is that of John Dalton ... the other that of James Prescott Joule ... Thus the honour is done to Manchester's two greatest sons - to Dalton, the founder of modern Chemistry and of the atomic theory, and the laws of chemical-combining proportions; to Joule, the founder of modern physics and the discoverer of the Law of Conservation of Energy.
One gave to the world the final proof ... that in every kind of chemical change no loss of matter occurs; the other proved that in all the varied modes of physical change, no loss of energy takes place. #Quote by Henry Enfield Roscoe
Concepts Physics quotes by Wilkie Collins
#33. The woman who first gives life, light, and form to our shadowy conceptions of beauty, fills a void in our spiritual nature that has remained unknown to us till she appeared. #Quote by Wilkie Collins
Concepts Physics quotes by Gore Vidal
#34. American laws don't work, but at least the laws of physics might work. #Quote by Gore Vidal
Concepts Physics quotes by Ravi Gomatam
#35. Scientific realism in classical (i.e. pre-quantum) physics has remained compatible with the naive realism of everyday thinking on the whole; whereas it has proven impossible to find any consistent way to visualize the world underlying quantum theory in terms of our pictures in the everyday world. The general conclusion is that in quantum theory naive realism, although necessary at the level of observations, fails at the microscopic level. #Quote by Ravi Gomatam
Concepts Physics quotes by James A. Baldwin
#36. The establishment of democracy on the American continent was scarcely as radical a break with the past as was the necessity, which Americans faced, of broadening this concept to include black men. #Quote by James A. Baldwin
Concepts Physics quotes by Karen Walker
#37. The overall concept comes first and then that informs the product, the shoot and how we communicate it. Everything comes back to the concept. It all gets thought about at the same time. #Quote by Karen Walker
Concepts Physics quotes by Marshall Nicholas Rosenbluth
#38. I studied calculus for the first time, which to me was an amazingly empowering experience which I could really see how you could understand all sorts of things, and I decided that chemistry and biology just had too much memory for me to be interested. Physics was very easy. #Quote by Marshall Nicholas Rosenbluth
Concepts Physics quotes by Richard Feynman
#39. Physics is to mathematics like sex is to masturbation. #Quote by Richard Feynman
Concepts Physics quotes by Darryl Anka
#40. Everything is energy and that's all there is to it. Match the frequency of the reality you want and you cannot help but get that reality. It can be no other way. This is not philosophy. This is physics. #Quote by Darryl Anka
Concepts Physics quotes by Tony Rabig
#41. When it came to time travel, science and science fiction and fantasy had flip-flopped. Nobody was going to create a machine that traveled to the future or the past. Time machines might be accepted in science fiction as an enabling device to get the story moving, but they're like faster-than-light space ships-- neither one is going to happen any time soon, not with any technology we know how to implement.
The guys who had it figured were the fantasists, Dennis. The Finneys and the Mathesons and the Ellisons and the Serlings. No machines and no advanced physics, at least not most of the time. Just an overpowering desire. Just need and longing and pain and regret and the right talisman or the right surroundings. Put the right person in the right place, and perhaps with the right objects, and the potential for time travel is there. #Quote by Tony Rabig
Concepts Physics quotes by Chris Parnell
#42. I appreciate and enjoy mathematics and science and all that side of things. I definitely have that side of me even though I'm not by any means an expert, but I love reading about physics and math and that kind of stuff. I wish I knew more than I did. I mean, I read books written for laymen, not textbooks or anything. #Quote by Chris Parnell
Concepts Physics quotes by Karl Wilhelm Friedrich Schlegel
#43. If you want to penetrate into the heart of physics, then let yourself be initiated into the mysteries of poetry. #Quote by Karl Wilhelm Friedrich Schlegel
Concepts Physics quotes by John Hutton
#44. Some people argue that we should limit choice in favour of good local services. My response is simple: why should we assume those two concepts are mutually exclusive? #Quote by John Hutton
Concepts Physics quotes by John R. Platt
#45. Going to the moon is not a matter of physics but of economics. #Quote by John R. Platt
Concepts Physics quotes by Erin Lawless
#46. She imagined how dancing with Seth would feel. All those years ago, when he'd first put his arms around her - breathing hot and beery over her face, into her mouth - and still she'd melted, wanted them to press closer together than physics allowed, wanted them to occupy the same time and space, for always. #Quote by Erin Lawless
