Order is manifestly maintained in the universe... governed by the sovereign will of God.More James Prescott Joule quotes [08/10/2011 03:08:05]
The most convincing proof of the conversion of heat into living force [vis viva] has been derived from my experiments with the electro-magnetic engine, a machine composed of magnets and bars of iron set in motion by an electrical battery.

The earth in its rapid motion round the sun possesses a degree of living force so vast that, if turned into the equivalent of heat, its temperature would be rendered at least one thousand times greater than that of red-hot iron, and the globe on which we tread would in all probability be rendered equal in brightness to the sun itself.More James Prescott Joule quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
