Albert Einstein
Now he has departed from this strange world a little ahead of me. That means nothing. People like us, who believe in physics, know that the distinction between past, present, and future is only a stubbornly persistent illusion.
Albert Einstein

In 1947 I defended my thesis on nuclear physics, and in 1948 I was included in a group of research scientists whose task was to develop nuclear weapons.
Andrei Sakharov

This is physics-based research that helps reveal the inner workings of the sun, and the researchers have demonstrated success with their technique. They have gone out on a limb, and their findings may have a huge impact on society.
Richard Behnke

Courses such as physics, which I hadn't taken before coming here, was of course challenging. Other students had taken it in high school, so I had to work harder to grasp the material which was all new to me. But, overall, I look at classes in terms of your learning ability. Your learning ability is your learning ability. Most of the material in college courses is new to everyone, so they are in the same situation as me.

The physics of our world, and the ways of putting things into space, has not changed, so the machinery looks much the same, even if the content is much, much more sophisticated.
Franco Bonacina

Friedrich Wilhelm Nietzsche
We must be physicists in order to be creative since so far codes of values and ideals have been constructed in ignorance of physics or even in contradiction to physics.
Friedrich Wilhelm Nietzsche

William Burroughs
No atomic physicist has to worry, people will always want to kill other people on a mass scale. Sure, he's got the fridge full of sausages and spring water.
William Burroughs

When I give this talk to a physics audience, I remove the quotes from my "Theorem".
Brian Greene

I was very advanced in physics, so I thought that something in astrophysics was where I would go ? I was thinking about NASA and stuff like that.
Brian Henson
#Physics

In 1948 I entered the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, undecided between studies of chemistry and physics, but my first year convinced me that physics was more interesting to me.
Burton Richter

Albert Einstein
The more I study physics, the more I am drawn to metaphysics.
Albert Einstein
#Physics

If anybody says he can think about quantum physics without getting giddy, that only shows he has not understood the first thing about them.
Niels Bohr
#Physics

Bertrand Russell
The observer, when he seems to himself to be observing a stone, is really, if physics is to be believed, observing the effects of the stone upon himself.
Bertrand Russell
#Physics

You can never repeal the laws of physics, and a smaller, lighter vehicle is always at a disadvantage no matter how many safety features are built into it.
Russ Rader

How can you be a physics major and be shocked when you get pregnant from having sex?
Sister Souljah
#Physics

I have always believed that astrophysics should be the extrapolation of laboratory physics, that we must begin from the present universe and work our way backward to progressively more remote and uncertain epochs.
Hannes Alfven
#Physics

If (the antiproton) had not been discovered, the foundations of physics really would have crumbled.
Steven Weinberg
#Physics

Not only should I be able to watch things happen in my electronic physics textbook, I ought to be able to tinker with the diagram they have drawn and try out other possibilities.
Randall Davis

In some sort of crude sense, which no vulgarity, no humor, no overstatement can quite extinguish, the physicists have known sin; and this is a knowledge which they cannot lose.

The laws of physics say you're going to be at a disadvantage. But small cars don't automatically mean you're at a severe risk.
Adrian Lund

I'm kind of a dork, and I like physics.
Dennis Tarsi

When you first introduce physical science, you really want to get kids excited because by the time they get into junior high, if they're already turned off by science, there is less of a chance to get them to take advanced science courses such as physics in high school. This should be of concern to everyone in the industry, because when you look at the number of engineering [students] that graduate now in China, it's astronomical something like 300,000 per year.

The distance-learning program will revolutionize the way we teach our children in Alabama forever. Just think about it: A kid in rural Clay County or Wilcox County will have the opportunity to take advanced physics, calculus, or even Chinese.
