Text Quotes
As you know, a theory in physics is not useful unless it is able to predict underlined effects which we would otherwise expect  (Richard P Feynman Quotes) A scientist is never certain.... We absolutely must leave room for doubt or there is no progress and there is no learning  (Richard P Feynman Quotes) There is one simplification at least. Electrons behave... in exactly the same way as photons; they are both screwy, but in exactly in the same way  (Richard P Feynman Quotes) As usual, nature’s imagination far surpasses our own, as we have seen from the other theories which are subtle and deep  (Richard P Feynman Quotes) It’s amazing how many people even today use a computer to do something you can do with a pencil and paper in less time  (Richard P Feynman Quotes) We can deduce, often, from one part of physics like the law of gravitation, a principle which turns out to be much more valid than the derivation  (Richard P Feynman Quotes) Poets say science takes away from the beauty of the stars - mere globs of gas atoms. I, too, can see the stars on a desert night, and feel them. But do I see less or more?  (Richard P Feynman Quotes) While I am describing to you how Nature works, you won’t understand why Nature works that way. But you see, nobody understands that  (Richard P Feynman Quotes) What I am going to tell you about is what we teach our physics students in the third or fourth year of graduate school... It is my task to convince you not to turn away because you don’t understand it. You see my physics students don’t understand it... That is because I don’t understand it. Nobody does  (Richard P Feynman Quotes) From a long view of the history of mankind, seen from, say, ten thousand years from now, there can be little doubt that the most significant event of the 19th century will be judged as Maxwell’s discovery of the laws of electrodynamics. The American Civil War will pale into provincial insignificance in comparison with this important scientific event of the same decade  (Richard P Feynman Quotes) I think nature’s imagination Is so much greater than man’s, she’s never going to let us relax  (Richard P Feynman Quotes) We are very lucky to be living in an age in which we are still making discoveries. It is like the discovery of America-you only discover it once. The age in which we live is the age in which we are discovering the fundamental laws of nature, and that day will never come again. It is very exciting, it is marvelous, but this excitement will have to go  (Richard P Feynman Quotes) During the Middle Ages there were all kinds of crazy ideas, such as that a piece of rhinoceros horn would increase potency. Then a method was discovered for separating the ideas - which was to try one to see if it worked, and if it didn’t work, to eliminate it. This method became organized, of course, into science  (Richard P Feynman Quotes) I have argued flying saucers with lots of people. I was interested in possible. They do not appreciate that the problem is not to demonstrate whether it’s possible or not but whether it’s going on or not  (Richard P Feynman Quotes) Our freedom to doubt was born out of a struggle against authority in the early days of science. It was a very deep and strong struggle: permit us to question - to doubt - to not be sure. I think that it is important that we do not forget this struggle and thus perhaps lose what we have gained  (Richard P Feynman Quotes) So, ultimately, in order to understand nature it may be necessary to have a deeper understanding of mathematical relationships. But the real reason is that the subject is enjoyable, and although we humans cut nature up in different ways, and we have different courses in different departments, such compartmentaliz ation is really artificial, and we should take our intellectual pleasures where we find them  (Richard P Feynman Quotes) If I say [electrons] behave like particles I give the wrong impression; also if I say they behave like waves. They behave in their own inimitable way, which technically could be called a quantum mechanical way. They behave in a way that is like nothing that you have seen before  (Richard P Feynman Quotes) When things are going well, something will go wrong. / When things just can’t get any worse, they will. / Anytime things appear to be going better, you have overlooked something  (Richard P Feynman Quotes) In any organization there ought to be the possibility of discussion... fence sitting is an art, and it’s difficult, and it’s important to do, rather than to go headlong in one direction or the other. It’s just better to have action, isn’t it than to sit on the fence? Not if you’re not sure which way to go, it isn’t  (Richard P Feynman Quotes) You can recognize truth by its beauty and simplicity. When you get it right, it is obvious that it is right -- at least if you have any experience -- because usually what happens is that more comes out than goes in  (Richard P Feynman Quotes) [John] von Neumann gave me an interesting idea: that you don’t have to be responsible for the world that you’re in. So I have developed a very powerful sense of social irresponsibility as a result of von Neumann’s advice. It’s made me a very happy man ever since. But it was von Neumann who put the seed in that grew into my active irresponsibility!  (Richard P Feynman Quotes) A philosopher once said, ‘It is necessary for the very existence of science that the same conditions always produce the same results.’ Well, they don’t!  (Richard P Feynman Quotes) Another of the qualities of science is that it teaches the value of rational thought, as well as the importance of freedom of thought; the positive results that come from doubting that all the lessons are true... Learn from science that you must doubt the experts. As a matter of fact, I can also define science another way: Science is the belief in the ignorance of experts  (Richard P Feynman Quotes) The only way to deep happiness is to do something you love to the best of your ability  (Richard P Feynman Quotes) Strange! I don’t understand how it is that we can write mathematical expressions and calculate what the thing is going to do without being able to picture it  (Richard P Feynman Quotes) 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 Quotes) I love to think. I once considered taking drugs as an attempt to better understand an altered state of mind; however, I decided not to. I didn’t want to chance ruining the machine.  (Richard P Feynman Quotes) The first amazing fact about gravitation is that the ratio of inertial mass to gravitational mass is constant wherever we have checked it. The second amazing thing about gravitation is how weak it is.  (Richard P Feynman Quotes) It’s amazing how many people even today use a computer to do something you can do with a pencil and paper in less time.  (Richard P Feynman Quotes) Working out another system to replace Newton’s laws took a long time because phenomena at the atomic level were quite strange. One had to lose one’s common sense in order to perceive what was happening at the atomic level.  (Richard P Feynman Quotes)
