God knows I am no friend of probability theory, I have hated it from the first moment when our dear friend Max Born gave it birth. For it could be seen how easy and simple it made everything, in principle, everything ironed and the true problems concealed. Everybody must jump on the bandwagon. And actually not a year passed before it became an official credo, and it still is. Science, Mathematics, Engineering & Technology
I hope you have not seriously taken amiss my certainly quite cowardly statements…. I wanted to remain free and could not do so without great duplicity. Loyalty & Loyalty Oaths
If we were bees, ants, or Lacedaemonian warriors, to whom personal fear does not exist and cowardice is the most shameful thing in the world, warring would go on forever. But luckily we are only men -- and cowards. War & Peace
In the midst of the exultant joy that is pervading our country … you will be very happy if … in accord with the true will of the Fuhrer you may be allowed to support the decision of his now united people with all your strength. Loyalty & Loyalty Oaths
Nature has no reverence towards life. Nature treats life as though it were the most valueless thing in the world.... Science, Mathematics, Engineering & Technology
Who are we? The answer to this question is not only one of the tasks but the task of science. Science, Mathematics, Engineering & Technology
A careful analysis of the process of observation in atomic physics has shown that the subatomic particles have no meaning as isolated entities, but can only be understood as interconnections between the preparation of an experiment and the subsequent measurement.
An animal that embarks on forming states without greatly restricting egoism will perish.
For a solitary animal egoism is a virtue that tends to preserve and improve the species: in any kind of community it becomes a destructive vice.
I don't like it, and I'm sorry I ever had anything to do with it.
Quantum physics thus reveals a basic oneness of the universe.
The mathematical framework of quantum theory has passed countless successful tests and is now universally accepted as a consistent and accurate description of all atomic phenomena.
The scientist only imposes two things, namely truth and sincerity, imposes them upon himself and upon other scientists. Truth
The verbal interpretation, on the other hand, i.e. the metaphysics of quantum physics, is on far less solid ground. In fact, in more than forty years physicists have not been able to provide a clear metaphysical model.
The world is given to me only once, not one existing and one perceived. Subject and object are only one. The barrier between them cannot be said to have broken down as a result of recent experience in the physical sciences, for this barrier does not exist.
What we observe as material bodies and forces are nothing but shapes and variations in the structure of space.
