Paul Dirac

God used beautiful mathematics in creating the world.More Paul Dirac [09/21/2011 05:09:33]
I do not see how a man can work on the frontiers of physics and write poetry at the same time. They are in opposition.More Paul Dirac [09/21/2011 05:09:42]
I should like to suggest to you that the cause of all the economic troubles is that we have an economic system which tries to maintain an equality of value between two things, which it would be better to recognise from the beginning as of unequal value.More Paul Dirac [09/21/2011 05:09:47]
In science one tries to tell people, in such a way as to be understood by everyone, something that no one ever knew before. But in poetry, it's the exact opposite.More Paul Dirac [09/21/2011 05:09:51]
Pick a flower on Earth and you move the farthest star.More Paul Dirac [09/21/2011 05:09:00]
The fundamental laws necessary for the mathematical treatment of a large part of physics and the whole of chemistry are thus completely known, and the difficulty lies only in the fact that application of these laws leads to equations that are too complex to be solved.More Paul Dirac [09/21/2011 05:09:05]
The methods of theoretical physics should be applicable to all those branches of thought in which the essential features are expressible with numbers.More Paul Dirac [09/21/2011 05:09:10]
The shortage of buyers, which the world is suffering from, is readily understood, not as due to people not wishing to obtain possession of goods, but as people being unwilling to part with something which might earn a regular income in exchange for those goods.More Paul Dirac [09/21/2011 05:09:14]
There is in my opinion a great similarity between the problems provided by the mysterious behavior of the atom and those provided by the present economic paradoxes confronting the world.More Paul Dirac [09/21/2011 05:09:19]
In science one tries to tell people, in such a way as to be understood by everyone, something that no one ever knew before. But in poetry, it's the exact opposite.More Paul Dirac [03/29/2018 05:03:36]

Art and science have their meeting point in method.More Paul Dirac [03/29/2018 05:03:36]

I think it is a peculiarity of myself that I like to play about with equations, just looking for beautiful mathematical relations which maybe don't have any physical meaning at all. Sometimes they do.
At age 60.More Paul Dirac [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
In science one tries to tell people, in such a way as to be understood by everyone, something that no one ever knew before. But in poetry, it is the exact opposite.More Paul Dirac [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
Living is worthwhile if one can contribute in some small way to this endless chain of progress.More Paul Dirac [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
The measure of greatness in a scientific idea is the extent to which it stimulates thought and opens up new lines of research.More Paul Dirac [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
The aim of science is to make difficult things understandable in a simpler way; the aim of poetry is to state simple things in an incomprehensible way. The two are incompatible.More Paul Dirac [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
I do not see how a man can work on the frontiers of physics and write poetry at the same time. They are in opposition.More Paul Dirac [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
If there is a God, he's a great mathematician.More Paul Dirac [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
