Stop telling God what to do with his dice.
No, no, no, you are not thinking; you are just being logical.
We are all agreed that your theory is crazy. The question which divides us is whether it is crazy enough to have a chance of being correct. My own feeling is that it is not crazy enough.
There are trivial truths and there are great truths. The opposite of a trivial truth is plainly false. The opposite of a great truth is also true.
You can recognize a small truth because its opposite is a falsehood. The opposite of a great truth is another truth.
In quantum mechanics...an observation here and now changes in general the 'state' of the observed system....I consider the unpredictable change of the state by a single observation...to be an abandonment of the idea of the isolation of the observer from the course of physical events outside himself.
Sometimes the child in one behaves a certain way and the rest of oneself follows behind slowly shaking its head.
Humanity will... be confronted with dangers of unprecedented character unless, in due time, measures can be taken to forestall a disastrous competition in such formidable armaments and to establish an international control of the manufacture and use of the powerful materials.
The best weapon of a dictatorship is secrecy, but the best weapon of a democracy should be the weapon of openness.
Technology has advanced more in the last thirty years than in the previous two thousand. The exponential increase in advancement will only continue. Anthropological Commentary The opposite of a trivial truth is false; the opposite of a great truth is also true.
An expert is a person who has found out by his own painful experience all the mistakes that one can make in a very narrow field.
If quantum mechanics hasn't profoundly shocked you, you haven't understood it yet.
Every description of natural processes must be based on ideas which have been introduced and defined by the classical theory.
Every great and deep difficulty bears in itself it's own solution. It forces us to change our thinking in order to find it.
Those who are not shocked when they first come across quantum theory cannot possibly have understood it.
It is wrong to think that the task of physics is to find out how Nature is. Physics concerns what we say about Nature.
Perhaps I have found out a little about the structure of atoms.
Einstein, stop telling God what to do!
When it comes to atoms, language can be used only as in poetry. The poet, too, is not nearly so concerned with describing facts as with creating images.
Never express yourself more clearly than you are able to think.
It is not enough to be wrong, one must also be polite.
