Favorite Physics Exams Quotes

1. "Be glad you don't have a vagina," my friend, who does have a vagina, told me. "You have to have a special doctor. You have to have these awful exams where you basically get naked and then remove your dignity. And then the various parts down there can get cancer and have to get cut out. I'm telling you, having a vagina is like having a pet. Like a dog that's always chasing cars."When she described it this way, it did seem a blessing that I was born without a vagina. I mean, I can't even handle having a heart."
Author: Augusten Burroughs
2. "Assessing existence while failing to embrace the insights of modern physics would be like wrestling in the dark with an unknown opponent."
Author: Brian Greene
3. "Magnetism, as you recall from physics class, is a powerful force that causes certain items to be attracted to refrigerators."
Author: Dave Barry
4. "Nature is not embarrassed by difficulties of analysis. She avoids complication only in means. Nature seems to be proposed to do much with little: it is a principle that the development of physics constantly supports by new evidence."
Author: Jean Fresnel
5. "You know," he huffed, "for such a skinny girl you weigh a ton. It's like a miracle of physics or something. Are you sure you're not made of lead?"
Author: Kiersten White
6. "In 1948 I was appointed to a Lectureship in Physics and in 1949 elected to a Fellowship at Trinity College."
Author: Martin Ryle
7. "My students know I have a life, they know I've written about my life. They know some detail, probably more than they know about their physics teacher, but I would've told them anyway!"
Author: Marya Hornbacher
8. "I have tried to read philosophers of all ages and have found many illuminating ideas but no steady progress toward deeper knowledge and understanding. Science, however, gives me the feeling of steady progress: I am convinced that theoretical physics is actual philosophy. It has revolutionized fundamental concepts, e.g., about space and time (relativity), about causality (quantum theory), and about substance and matter (atomistics), and it has taught us new methods of thinking (complementarity) which are applicable far beyond physics."
Author: Max Born
9. "Physicists often quote from T. H. White's epic novel The Once and Future King, where a society of ants declares, 'Everything not forbidden is compulsory.' In other words, if there isn't a basic principle of physics forbidding time travel, then time travel is necessarily a physical possibility. (The reason for this is the uncertainty principle. Unless something is forbidden, quantum effects and fluctuations will eventually make it possible if we wait long enough. Thus, unless there is a law forbidding it, it will eventually occur.)"
Author: Michio Kaku
10. "The fact that Science walks forward on two feet, namely theory and experiment, is nowhere better illustrated than in the two fields for slight contributions to which you have done me the great honour of awarding the the Nobel Prize in Physics for the year 1923. Sometimes it is one foot that is put forward first, sometimes the other, but continuous progress is only made by the use of both—by theorizing and then testing, or by finding new relations in the process of experimenting and then bringing the theoretical foot up and pushing it on beyond, and so on in unending alterations."
Author: Nobel
11. "Any of the components of an organism-say, a haemoglobin molecule-can be given an arbitrarily complete and precise description in the language of atomic physics or chemistry, and yet this description will miss something that is nevertheless materially relevant to its structure and its very existence. Specifically, it will provide no hint of why this highly improbable molecular configuration is so prevalent, as compared with the astronomical number of molecular forms that are not present. Haemoglobin,"
Author: Paul Davies
12. "The methods of theoretical physics should be applicable to all those branches of thought in which the essential features are expressible with numbers."
Author: Paul Dirac
13. "In some ways I'm a frustrated scientist or mathematician. The amount of times I've thought I'd go back to university and do theoretical physics because I like the big questions, but really I know now that that's not quite me. What's me is to do it in novels."
Author: Scarlett Thomas
14. "My physics teacher, Thomas Miner was particularly gifted. To this day, I remember how he introduced the subject of physics. He told us we were going to learn how to deal with very simple questions such as how a body falls due to the acceleration of gravity."
Author: Steven Chu
15. "In a previous life I wrote the software that controlled my physics experiments. That software had to deal with all kinds of possible failures in equipment. That is probably where I learned to rely on multiple safety nets inside and around my systems."
Author: Wietse Venema
