This physicist goes into an ice cream parlor every week and orders an ice cream sundae for himself, and then offers one to the empty stool sitting next to him. This goes on for a while until the owner finally asks him what he's doing. The man says, "Well, I'm a physicist, and quantum mechanics teaches us, that it is possible for the matter above this stool to spontaneously turn into a beautiful woman who might accept my offer and fall in love with me." The owner then says, "Lots of single, beautiful women come in here ever day. Buy an ice cream for one of them, and they might fall in love with you." And the physicist says, "Yeah, but what are the odds of that happening?!"
Spent all these years to find out about the quantum realm and I found out that I know nothing.
Dr. Hank Pym in Ant-Man1
Life is strong and fragile. It's a paradox... It's both things, like quantum physics: It's a particle and a wave at the same time. It all exists all together.
Quantum physics thus reveals a basic oneness of the universe.
If quantum mechanics hasn't profoundly shocked you, you haven't understood it yet.
Quantum mechanics makes absolutely no sense
The "paradox" is only a conflict between reality and your feeling of what reality ‘ought to be'
Richard Feynman - about quantum mechanics
If you are not completely confused by quantum mechanics, you do not understand it.
I do not like it, and I am sorry I ever had anything to do with it.
Erwin Schrödinger - about quantum mechanics
Readers probably haven't heard much about it yet, but they will. Quantum technology turns ordinary reality upside down.
If it is correct, it signifies the end of physics as a science.
Albert Einstein - about quantum mechanics

Physics is the attempt of humanity to understand the world. However it is a real good attempt.
No one undertakes research in physics with the intention of winning a prize. It is the joy of discovering something no one knew before.
In some sort of crude sense, which no vulgarity, no humor, no overstatement can quite extinguish, the physicists have known sin; and this is a knowledge which they cannot lose.
It would be better for the true physics if there were no mathematicians on earth.
There are children playing in the streets who could solve some of my top problems in physics, because they have modes of sensory perception that I lost long ago.
I need physics more than friends.
Spacetime tells matter how to move; matter tells spacetime how to curve.
A physicist is just an atom's way of looking at itself.
Science without religion is lame. Religion without science is blind.
The most beautiful experience we can have is the mysterious. It is the fundamental emotion that stands at the cradle of true art and true science. Whoever does not know it and can no longer wonder, no longer marvel, is as good as dead, and his eyes are dimmed.
The saddest aspect of life right now is that science gathers knowledge faster than society gathers wisdom.
We still do not know one thousandth of one percent of what nature has revealed to us.
Since the mathematicians have invaded the theory of relativity, I do not understand it myself anymore.
The first gulp from the glass of natural sciences will turn you into an atheist, but at the bottom of the glass God is waiting for you.
Every kid starts out as a natural-born scientist, and then we beat it out of them. A few trickle through the system with their wonder and enthusiasm for science intact.
Without proper experiments I conclude nothing.
The present is the only thing that has no end.
The task is not to see what has never been seen before, but to think what has never been thought before about what you see everyday.
Everything existing in the Universe is the fruit of chance and necessity.

For me the challenge isn't to be different but to be consistent.
An expert is a man who has made all the mistakes which can be made, in a narrow field.
Sometimes it's the detours which turn out to be the fruitful ideas.
Tell your son to stop trying to fill your head with science - for to fill your heart with love is enough!
We live on an island surrounded by a sea of ignorance. As our island of knowledge grows, so does the shore of our ignorance.
