Particle Quotes

Which came first the observer or the particle?

Vanna Bonta

I said, "...it is quantum fiction." The first line of the story is "Which came first, the observer or the particle?" - and it goes from there.

Vanna Bonta

What appears to us solid is ultimately both a particle and a wavelength, and on that realm everything behaves as both a particle and a wave.

Vanna Bonta

There is a kind of latent omniscience not only in every man, but in every particle. The creation of a thousand forests is in one acorn.

Ralph Waldo Emerson

Thousands of men breathe, move, and live; pass off the stage of life and are heard of no more. Why? They did not a particle of good in the world; and none were blest by them, none could point to them as the instrument of their redemption; not a line they wrote, not a word they spoke, could be recalled, and so they perished--their light went out in darkness, and they were not remembered more than the insects of yesterday. Will you thus live and die, O man immortal? Live for something

Thomas Chalmers

Poetry implies the whole truth, philosophy expresses only a particle of it.

Henry David Thoreau

Every particle of every thing rocks, water, flour, human has been in the same place flaming in the heart of our ancient sun before the earth came flying out of it. The irises in your eyes the tissue of roses the slow giant rocks in mountainheads were all born flaming locked in the sun as it drifted like a light on dark water.

Lawrence Collins

I haven't a particle of confidence in a man who has no redeeming vices

Mark Twain

He that hopes to look back hereafter with satisfaction upon past years must learn to know the present value of single minutes, and endeavour to let no particle of time fall useless to the ground.

Samuel Johnson

I think that a particle must have a separate reality independent of the measurements. That is an electron has spin, location and so forth even when it is not being measured. I like to think that the moon is there even if I am not looking at it.

Albert Einstein

That which has no existence cannot be destroyed that which cannot be destroyed cannot require anything to preserve it from destruction. Natural rights is simple nonsense: natural and imprescriptible rights, rhetorical nonsense nonsense upon stilts. But this rhetorical nonsense ends in the old strain of mischievous nonsense for immediately a list of these pretended natural rights is given, and those are so expressed as to present to view legal rights. And of these rights, whatever they are, there is not, it seems, any one of which any government can, upon any occasion whatever, abrogate the smallest particle.

Jeremy Bentham
