Over Public Relations Take

Reality must take precedence over public relations, for nature cannot be fooled.

- Richard P. Feynman

Always Field Apt

In talking about the impact of ideas in one field on ideas in another field, one is always apt to make a fool of oneself.

- Richard P. Feynman

Which Resulted Theoretical

Einstein's gravitational theory, which is said to be the greatest single achievement of theoretical physics, resulted in beautiful relations connecting gravitational phenomena with the geometry of space; this was an exciting idea.

- Richard P. Feynman

Knowing Here I Was Born

I was born not knowing and have had only a little time to change that here and there.

- Richard P. Feynman

Through Inside Dot

What goes on inside a star is better understood than one might guess from the difficulty of having to look at a little dot of light through a telescope, because we can calculate what the atoms in the stars should do in most circumstances.

- Richard P. Feynman

Fact Quantum Mechanics

It is a curious historical fact that modern quantum mechanics began with two quite different mathematical formulations: the differential equation of Schroedinger and the matrix algebra of Heisenberg. The two apparently dissimilar approaches were proved to be mathematically equivalent.

- Richard P. Feynman

Dumb Next Scientist

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

- Richard P. Feynman

Task Forces Investigating

Investigating the forces that hold the nuclear particles together was a long task.

- Richard P. Feynman

Nature Technology Over

For a successful technology, reality must take precedence over public relations, for Nature cannot be fooled.

- Richard P. Feynman

Matter Agree Your

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

Learn Some Other

I don't know what's the matter with people: they don't learn by understanding; they learn by some other way - by rote, or something. Their knowledge is so fragile!

- Richard P. Feynman

Show Discovered Fiddling

It always seems odd to me that the fundamental laws of physics, when discovered, can appear in so many different forms that are not apparently identical at first, but, with a little mathematical fiddling, you can show the relationship.

- Richard P. Feynman

Before Some Confined

It is in the admission of ignorance and the admission of uncertainty that there is a hope for the continuous motion of human beings in some direction that doesn't get confined, permanently blocked, as it has so many times before in various periods in the history of man.

- Richard P. Feynman

Mechanical Reasoning Works

Trying to understand the way nature works involves a most terrible test of human reasoning ability. It involves subtle trickery, beautiful tightropes of logic on which one has to walk in order not to make a mistake in predicting what will happen. The quantum mechanical and the relativity ideas are examples of this.

- Richard P. Feynman

Think More Good Place

Europeans are much more serious than we are in America because they think that a good place to discuss intellectual matters is a beer party.

- Richard P. Feynman

Fool Principle Easiest

The first principle is that you must not fool yourself and you are the easiest person to fool.

- Richard P. Feynman

Play Disease Very

There is a computer disease that anybody who works with computers knows about. It's a very serious disease and it interferes completely with the work. The trouble with computers is that you 'play' with them!

- Richard P. Feynman

Small Tapestry Longest

Nature uses only the longest threads to weave her patterns, so that each small piece of her fabric reveals the organization of the entire tapestry.

- Richard P. Feynman

Beautiful Chemistry

The internal machinery of life, the chemistry of the parts, is something beautiful. And it turns out that all life is interconnected with all other life.

- Richard P. Feynman

Game May Allowed

We do not know what the rules of the game are; all we are allowed to do is to watch the playing. Of course, if we watch long enough, we may eventually catch on to a few of the rules. The rules of the game are what we mean by fundamental physics.
