My mother made me a scientist without ever intending to. Every other Jewish mother in Brooklyn would ask her child after school, So? Did you learn anything today? But not my mother. Izzy, she would say, did you ask a good question today? That difference - asking good questions - made me become a scientist.More Isidor Rabi quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]

We gave you an atomic bomb, what do you want, mermaids ?More Isidor Rabi quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
Science itself is badly in need of integration and unification. The tendency is more and more the other way ... Only the graduate student, poor beast of burden that he is, can be expected to know a little of each. As the number of physicists increases, each specialty becomes more self-sustaining and self-contained. Such Balkanization carries physics, and indeed, every science further away, from natural philosophy, which, intellectually, is the meaning and goal of science.More Isidor Rabi quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
