Richard Feynman

American physicist, Nobel Prize winner in 1965.
We are not to tell nature what she’s gotta be. She's always got better imagination than we have.More Richard Feynman quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
What is the fundamental hypothesis of science, the fundamental philosophy? We stated it in the first chapter: the sole test of the validity of any idea is experiment. ... If we are told that the same experiment will always produce the same result, that is all very well, but if when we try it, it does not, then it does not. We just have to take what we see, and then formulate all the rest of our ideas in terms of our actual experience.More Richard Feynman quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
The principle of science, the definition, almost, is the following: The test of all knowledge is experiment. Experiment is the sole judge of scientific "truth." But what is the source of knowledge? Where do the laws that are to be tested come from? Experiment, itself, helps to produce these laws, in the sense that it gives us hints. But also needed is imagination to create from these hints the great generalizations--to guess at the wonderful, simple, but very strange patterns beneath them all, and then to experiment toMore Richard Feynman quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
I'm trying to find out NOT how Nature could be, but how Nature IS.More Richard Feynman quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
There is nothing in biology yet found that indicates the inevitability of death. This suggests to me that it is not at all inevitable and that it is only a matter of time before biologists discover what it is that is causing us the trouble.More Richard Feynman quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
