Richard Feynman Quotes

Richard Phillips Feynman was an American theoretical physicist, known for his work in the path integral formulation of quantum mechanics, the theory of quantum electrodynamics, the physics of the superfluidity of supercooled liquid helium, as well as his work in particle physics for which he proposed the parton model. He shared an Nobel prize for his contributions to the development of quantum electrodynamics. Here are some of the Richard Feynman quotes. These science quotes will sure inspire you.

“Study hard what interests you the most in the most undisciplined, irreverent and original manner possible.”

“For a successful technology, reality must take precedence over public relations, for nature cannot be fooled.”

“Philosophy of science is about as useful to scientists as ornithology is to birds.”

Science quotes

“Nature uses only the longest threads to weave her patterns, so each small piece of her fabric reveals the organization of the entire tapestry.”

“The first person you should be careful not to fool is yourself. Because you are the easiest person to fool”.”

“I think nature’s imagination Is so much greater than man’s, she’s never going to let us relax”

“The things that mattered were honesty, independence, willingness to admit ignorance.”

science quotes

“Once you start doubting, just like you’re supposed to doubt, you ask me if the science is true. You say no, we don’t know what’s true, we’re trying to find out and everything is possibly wrong.”

“The whole problem of discovering what was the matter, and figuring out what you have to do to fix it–that was interesting to me, like a puzzle”

Famous Science quotes from Richard Feynman

“Science is a way to teach how something gets to be known, what is not known, to what extent things are known (for nothing is known absolutely), how to handle doubt and uncertainty, what the rules of evidence are, how to think about things so that judgments can be made, how to distinguish truth from fraud, and from show.”

“Science is the organized skepticism in the reliability of expert opinion.”
