Indeed, I would feel that an appreciation of the arts in a conscious, disciplined way might help one to do science better.More Subrahmanyan Chandrasekhar [09/28/2011 04:09:00]
Science is a perception of the world around us. Science is a place where what you find in nature pleases you.More Subrahmanyan Chandrasekhar [09/28/2011 04:09:08]
The black holes of nature are the most perfect macroscopic objects there are in the universe: the only elements in their construction are our concepts of space and time.More Subrahmanyan Chandrasekhar [09/28/2011 04:09:16]
all the standard equations of mathematical physics can be separated and solved in Kerr geometry.More Subrahmanyan Chandrasekhar [03/29/2018 05:03:36]

The pursuit of science has often been compared to the scaling of mountains, high and not so high. But who amongst us can hope, even in imagination, to scale the Everest and reach its summit when the sky is blue and the air is still, and in the stillness of the air survey the entire Himalayan range in the dazzling white of the snow stretching to infinity? None of us can hope for a comparable vision of nature and of the universe around us. But there is nothing mean or lowly in standing in the valley below and awaiting thMore Subrahmanyan Chandrasekhar [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
In some strange way, any new fact or insight that I may have found has not seemed to me as a "discovery" of mine, but rather something that had always been there and that I had chanced to pick up.More Subrahmanyan Chandrasekhar [03/29/2018 05:03:36]

Macroscopic objects, as we see them all around us, are governed by a variety of forces, derived from a variety of approximations to a variety of physical theories. In contrast, the only elements in the construction of black holes are our basic concepts of space and time. They are, thus, almost by definition, the most perfect macroscopic objects there are in the universe.More Subrahmanyan Chandrasekhar [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
One may ask the question as to the extent to which the quest for beauty is an aim in the pursuit of science. . . . It is, indeed, an incredible fact that what the human mind, at its deepest and most profound, perceives as beautiful finds its realization in external nature. What is intelligible is also beautiful.More Subrahmanyan Chandrasekhar [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
Beauty is that to what the human mind responds at its deepest and most profound.More Subrahmanyan Chandrasekhar [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
