Famous Physics Quotes

Energy is liberated matter, matter is energy waiting to happen. Bill Bryson

Physics is the most fundamental, and least significant, of the sciences. Ken Wilber

Not only is the Universe stranger than we think, it is stranger than we can think. Werner Heisenberg

It doesn’t matter how beautiful your theory is, it doesn’t matter how smart you are. If it doesn’t agree with experiment, it’s wrong. Richard P. Feynman

Physics is an attempt conceptually to grasp reality as something that is considered to be independent of its being observed. In this sense one speaks of physical reality. Albert Einstein

Physics is, hopefully, simple. Physicists are not. Edward Teller

The laws of physics is the canvas God laid down on which to paint his masterpiece Dan Brown

Physicists have come to realize that mathematics, when used with sufficient care, is a proven pathway to truth. Brian Greene

Physics tells us observations can’t be predicted absolutely. Rather, there’s a range of possible observations each with a different probability. Robert Lanza

The knowledge of the soul is knowledge of the universe. Alexis Karpouzos

Energy is liberated matter. Bill Bryson

physics quotes

If the universe is an artificial simulation then the mathematics is its code and a physicist is a programmer. Shubham Sanap

Theoretical physics is the entertainment branch of physics. Khalid Masood

The study of physics is also an adventure. You will find it challenging, sometimes frustrating, occasionally painful, and often richly rewarding. Hugh D. Young

Newton’s laws of physics can rarely be applied to the real world. There is more to life than cause and effect. Things just aren’t that simple. Amy Zhang

Scientific Physics Quotes

Physics is the only profession in which prophecy is not only accurate but routine. Neil deGrasse Tyson

In the beginning there was nothing, which exploded. Terry Pratchett

Matter is energy waiting to happen. Bill Bryson.

I believe that a scientist looking at nonscientific problems is just as dumb as the next guy. Richard P. Feynman

Physics investigates the essential nature of the world, and biology describes a local bump. Psychology, human psychology, describes a bump on the bump. Willard Van Orman Quine

In physics, to be in two places at the same time would be a miracle; in politics it seems not merely normal, but natural. Charles Edison

Man is an artifact designed for space travel. He is not designed to remain in his present biologic state any more than a tadpole is designed to remain a tadpole. William S. Burroughs

It’s tough for magic to argue with physics, most of the time. Jim Butcher

Scientists have become the bearers of the torch of discovery in our quest for knowledge. Stephen Hawkings

Primitive life is very common and intelligent life is fairly rare. Some would say it has yet to occur on Earth. Stephen Hawking

Only two things are infinite, the universe and human stupidity, and I’m not sure about the former. Albert Einstein

Everything we call real is made of things that cannot be regarded as real. Niels Bohr

The people who actually make the advances in theoretical physics don’t think in these categories that the philosophers and the historians of science subsequently invent for them. Stephen Hawking

There is nothing that living things do that cannot be understood from the point of view that they are made of atoms acting according to the laws of physics. Richard P. Feynman

The best that most of us can hope to achieve in physics is simply to misunderstand at a deeper level. Wolfgang Pauli

Amazing Physics Quotes

In order to make an apple pie from scratch, you must first create the universe. Carl Sagan

All creation necessarily ends in this: creators, powerless, fleeing from the things they have wrought David Eagleman

Measure what can be measured, and make measureable what cannot be measured. Galileo Galilei

No two electrons in the same state? That is why atoms are so unnecessarily big, and why metal and stone are so bulky. Paul Ehrenfest

Deep down, nature is inherently peaceful, calm and beautiful. The universe as a whole is perfect. The chaos is on the surface. Amit Ray

The Universe is not only queerer than we suppose, but queerer than we can suppose. J.B.S. Haldane

The question of relevance comes before that of truth, because to ask whether a statement is true or false presupposes that it is relevant.”-David Bohm

It would be better for the true physics if there were no mathematicians on earth. Daniel Bernoulli

Physics has found no straight lines. Instead, the physical universe consists of only waves undulating back and forth allowing for corrections and balance. R. Buckminster Fuller

For us physicists believe the separation between past, present, and future is only an illusion, although a convincing one. Albert Einstein

Those who are not shocked when they first come across quantum theory cannot possibly have understood it. Niels Bohr

Quantum theory provides us with a striking illustration of the fact that we can fully understand a connection though we can only speak of it in images and parables. Werner Heisenberg

The truth is, everyone is confused by quantum physics. David Walton

Quantum physics thus reveals a basic oneness of the universe. Erwin Schrodinger

The development of physics, like the development of any science, is a continuous one. Owen Chamberlain

The fundamental concept in social science is power, in the same sense in which energy is the fundamental concept in physics. Bertrand Russell

Protons give an atom its identity, electrons its personality. Bill Bryson

Quantum attention functions are the keys to quantum machine learning. Amit Ray

If you are not completely confused by quantum mechanics, you do not understand it. John Wheeler

It is the nature of physics to hear the loudest of mouths over the most comprehensive ones. Criss Jami

Physics is really nothing more than a search for ultimate simplicity, but so far all we have is a kind of elegant messiness. Bill Bryson

Physics is about questioning, studying, probing nature. You probe, and, if you’re lucky, you get strange clues. Lene Hau

Quantum physics teaches us that we can simultaneously exist in many places, under certain conditions. Amit Ray

At the atomic level, matter does not even exist with certainty; it only exists as a tendency to exist. Bruce H. Lipton

Quantum attention functions are the bridges between the mental and the physical. Amit Ray

There is nothing that living things do that cannot be understood from the point of view that they are made of atoms acting according to the laws of physics. Richard P. Feynman

If all of mathematics disappeared, physics would be set back by exactly one week. Richard P. Feynman
