Richard P. Feynman Quote: “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 Quote: “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 Quote: “The Quantum Universe has a quotation from me in every chapter – but it’s a damn good book anyway.”
Richard P. Feynman Quote: “The exception proves that the rule is wrong.” That is the principle of science. If there is an exception to any rule, and if it can be proved by observation, that rule is wrong.”
Richard P. Feynman Quote: “You know how it always is, every new idea, it takes a generation or two until it becomes obvious that there’s no real problem. I cannot define the real problem, therefore I suspect there’s no real problem, but I’m not sure there’s no real problem.”
Richard P. Feynman Quote: “Whenever you see a sweeping statement that a tremendous amount can come from a very small number of assumptions, you always find that it is false. There are usually a large number of implied assumptions that are far from obvious if you think about them sufficiently carefully.”
Richard P. Feynman Quote: “Every instrument that has been designed to be sensitive enough to detect weak light has always ended up discovering that the same thing: light is made of particles.”
Richard P. Feynman Quote: “All we know so far is what doesn’t work.”
Richard P. Feynman Quote: “Only realistic flight schedules should be proposed, schedules that have a reasonable chance of being met. If in this way the government would not support them, then so be it. NASA owes it to the citizens from whom it asks support to be frank, honest, and informative.”
Richard P. Feynman Quote: “This is not very important what I’m doing. I’m just proving something.”
Richard P. Feynman Quote: “So this piece of dirt waits four and a half billion years and evolves and changes, and now a strange creature stands here with instruments and talks to the strange creatures in the audience. What a wonderful world!”
Richard P. Feynman Quote: “The problem of creating something new, but which is consistent with everything which has been seen before, is one of extreme difficulty.”
Richard P. Feynman Quote: “I have to keep going to find out ultimately what is the matter with it in the end.”
Richard P. Feynman Quote: “To guess what to keep and what to throw away takes considerable skill. Actually it is probably merely a matter of luck, but it looks as if it takes considerable skill.”
Richard P. Feynman Quote: “You have to have absolute confidence. Keep right on going, and nothing will happen.”
Richard P. Feynman Quote: “In fact the total amount that a physicist knows is very little. He has only to remember the rules to get him from one place to another and he is all right...”
Richard P. Feynman Quote: “The other great heritage is Christian ethics – the basis of action on love, the brotherhood of all men, the value of the individual, the humility of the spirit. These two heritages are logically, thoroughly consistent.”
Richard P. Feynman Quote: “I don’t believe in honors, it bothers me, honors bother, honors is epaulettes, honors is uniforms. My papa brought me up this way. I can’t stand it, it hurts me.”
Richard P. Feynman Quote: “I’m not responsible for what other people think I am able to do; I don’t have to be good because they think I’m going to be good.”
Richard P. Feynman Quote: “Once you start doubting, just like you’re supposed to doubt, you ask me if the science is true. You say no, we don’t know what’s true, we’re trying to find out and everything is possibly wrong.”
Richard P. Feynman Quote: “No government has the right to decide on the truth of scientific principles, nor to prescribe in any way the character of the questions investigated. Neither may a government determine the aesthetic value of artistic creations, nor limit the forms of literacy or artistic expression. Nor should it pronounce on the validity of economic, historic, religious, or philosophical doctrines. Instead it has a duty to its citizens to maintain the freedom, to let those citizens contribute to the further adventure and the development of the human race.”
Richard P. Feynman Quote: “I’ve found out since that such people don’t know what they’re doing, and get insulted when you make some suggestion or criticism.”
Richard P. Feynman Quote: “You see, one thing is, I can live with doubt and uncertainty and not knowing. I think it’s much more interesting to live not knowing than to have answers which might be wrong.”
Richard P. Feynman Quote: “That night, Brazilian TV audiences saw the director of the Center for Physical Research welcome the Visiting Professor from the United States, but little did they know that the subject of their conversation was finding a girl to spend the night with!”
Richard P. Feynman Quote: “Western civilization, it seems to me, stands by two great heritages. One is the scientific spirit of adventure – the adventure into the unknown, an unknown that must be recognized as unknown in order to be explored, the demand that the unanswerable mysteries of the universe remain unanswered, the attitude that all is uncertain. To summarize it: humility of the intellect.”
Richard P. Feynman Quote: “I learned from my father to translate: everything I read I try to figure out what it really means, what it’s really saying.”
Richard P. Feynman Quote: “I said, “There’s a long tradition behind life in India that comes from a religion and philosophy that is thousands of years old. And although these people are not in India, they still pass on those traditions about what’s important in life – trying to build for the future and supporting their children in the effort – which have come down to them for centuries.”
Richard P. Feynman Quote: “This is not a new idea; this is the idea of the age of reason. This is the philosophy that guided the men that made the democracy that we live under. The idea that no one really knew how to run a government led to the idea that we should arrange a system by which new ideas could be developed, tried out, and tossed out if necessary, with more new ideas brought in – a trial and error system.”
Richard P. Feynman Quote: “The things that mattered were honesty, independence, willingness to admit ignorance.”
Richard P. Feynman Quote: “Once in Hawaii I was taken to see a Buddhist temple. In the temple a man said, “I am going to tell you something that you will never forget.” And then he said, “To every man is given the key to the gates of heaven. The same key opens the gates of hell.”
Richard P. Feynman Quote: “Religion gives inspiration to act well. Not only that, it gives inspiration to the arts and to many other activities of human beings.”
Richard P. Feynman Quote: “You can know the name of a bird in all the languages of the world, but when you’re finished, you’ll know absolutely nothing whatever about the bird... So let’s look at the bird and see what it’s doing – that’s what counts. I learned very early the difference between knowing the name of something and knowing something.”
Richard P. Feynman Quote: “I USED to cross the United States in my automobile every summer, trying to make it to the Pacific Ocean. But, for various reasons, I would always get stuck somewhere – usually in Las Vegas.”
Richard P. Feynman Quote: “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 Quote: “Philosophers have said before that one of the fundamental requisites of science is that whenever you set up the same conditions, the same thing must happen. This is simply not true, it is not a fundamental condition of science.”
Richard P. Feynman Quote: “We have found it of paramount importance that in order to progress we must recognize our ignorance and leave room for doubt. Scientific knowledge is a body of statements of varying degrees of certainty – some most unsure, some nearly sure, but none absolutely certain.”
Richard P. Feynman Quote: “There was an interesting early relationship between physics and biology in which biology helped physics in the discovery of the conservation of energy, which was first demonstrated by Mayer in connection with the amount of heat taken in and given out by a living creature.”
Richard P. Feynman Quote: “But if you’ve ever worked with computers, you understand the disease – the delight in being able to see how much you can do.”
Richard P. Feynman Quote: “It’s all generated, maybe, by the fact that the attitude of the populace is to try to find the answer instead of trying to find a man who has a way of getting at the answer.”
Richard P. Feynman Quote: “It is probably better to realize that the probability concept is in a sense subjective, that it is always based on uncertain knowledge, and that its quantitative evaluation is subject to change as we obtain more information.”
