Brilliant Quotes By Famous And Awesome Scientists!

Physics is actually too hard for physicists. ~ David Hilbert 1862 to 1943 (Mathematician)

A physicist is an atom’s way of knowing about atoms. - George Wald 1906 to 1997 Neurobiologist

An experiment is a question which science poses to Nature and a measurement is the recording of Nature’s answer. - Max Planck 1858 to 1947 Theoretical Physicist

Biology is the study of the complex things in the Universe. Physics is the study of the simple ones. ~ Richard Dawkins 1941 – present - Evolutionary Biologist

Although the alternate ‘wax and wane’ cycles are the rule rather than the exception in all fields of human endeavor in that of biological sciences the ‘wane’ is all too often indicative of a justified loss of faith in the rational and methodical approach that had at first raised so much hope. ~ Rita Levi-Montalcini 1909 to 2012 Neurobiologist
