Erwin Schrodinger Quotes and Sayings

I hope you find great value in these Quotes by Erwin Schrodinger from my large collection of motivational and inspirational quotes and sayings.

Quantum physics thus reveals a basic oneness of the universe.
- Erwin Schrodinger

I don't like it, and I'm sorry I ever had anything to do with it.
- Erwin Schrodinger

What we observe as material bodies and forces are nothing
but shapes and variations in the structure of space.
- Erwin Schrodinger

The scientist only imposes two things,
namely truth and sincerity, imposes them upon himself
and upon other scientists.
- Erwin Schrodinger

 

An animal that embarks on forming states without greatly
restricting egoism will perish.
- Erwin Schrodinger

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.
- Erwin Schrodinger

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.
- Erwin Schrodinger

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.
- Erwin Schrodinger

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.
- Erwin Schrodinger

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.
- Erwin Schrodinger

Doing is a quantum leap from imagining.
- Barbara Sher

If quantum mechanics hasn't profoundly shocked you,
you haven't understood it yet.
- Niels Bohr

There was a long history of speculation that in quantum gravity,
unlike Einstein's classical theory, it might be possible
for the topology of spacetime to change.
- Edward Witten

I mean, we're really making a quantum change in our
relationship to the plant world with genetic modification.
- Michael Pollan

If someone says that he can think or talk about quantum
physics without becoming dizzy,
that shows only that he has not understood anything whatever about it.
- Murray Gell-Mann

In relativity, movement is continuous,
causally determinate and well defined,
while in quantum mechanics it is discontinuous,
not causally determinate and not well defined.
- David Bohm

Einstein was searching for String Theory.
It not only reconciles General Relativity to Quantum Mechanics,
but it reconciles Science and the Bible as well.
- Roy H. Williams

Nevertheless, all of us who work in quantum physics
believe in the reality of a quantum world,
and the reality of quantum entities like protons and electrons.
- John Polkinghorne

I wouldn't have thought that a wrong theory should
lead us to understand better the ordinary quantum field
theories or to have new insights about the quantum states of black holes.
- Edward Witten

When His Holiness won the Nobel Peace Prize,
there was a quantum leap.
He is not seen as solely a Tibetan anymore;
he belongs to the world.
- Richard Gere

It is difficult for me to believe that quantum mechanics,
working very well for currently practical set-ups,
will nevertheless fail badly with improvements in counter efficiency.
- John S. Bell

Readers probably haven't heard much about it yet,
but they will.
Quantum technology turns ordinary reality upside down.
- Michael Crichton

Quantum mechanics brought an unexpected fuzziness into
physics because of quantum uncertainty,
the Heisenberg uncertainty principle.
- Edward Witten

Similarly, another famous little quantum fluctuation
that programs you is the exact configuration of your DNA.
- Seth Lloyd

But I don't actually adopt the point of view that our
subjective impression of free will,
which is a kind of indeterminacy behavior,
comes from quantum mechanical indeterminacy.
- Murray Gell-Mann

The field of quantum valence fluctuations was another
older interest which became much more active during this period,
partly as a consequence of my own efforts.
- Philip Warren Anderson

The problem is that replacement of Quantum Mechanics
by Quantum Field Theory is still very demanding.
- Martin Fleischmann

If anybody says he can think about quantum physics without getting giddy,
that only shows he has not understood the first thing about them.
- Niels Bohr

The chaos can act as a magnifier of quantum fluctuations
so that they can produce sizable effects in the world around us.
But we know that that can happen often.
- Murray Gell-Mann

Now, what that means is that there is fundamental indeterminacy from quantum mechanics,
but besides that there are other sources of effective indeterminacy.
- Murray Gell-Mann

I believe that the quantum of our knowledge will increase
considerably in the coming years and that scientists
will continue to be amongst the brave voices speaking out.
- Peter Garrett

In fact any experiment that measures a quantum effect
is one in which the quantum effect is aligned with
the behavior of some heavy,
macroscopic object; that's how we measure it.
- Murray Gell-Mann

Quantum computation is...
a distinctively new way of harnessing nature...
It will be the first technology that allows useful
tasks to be performed in collaboration between parallel universes.
- David Deutsch

Because of recent improvements in the accuracy of theoretical
predictions based on large scale ab initio quantum mechanical calculations,
meaningful comparisons between theoretical and experimental
findings have become possible.
- Yuan T. Lee

When I moved to Stanford I began to pursue the line
of research I have been following ever since,
namely trying to understand the larger implications
of fractional quantum hall discovery.
- Robert B. Laughlin

Quantum Mechanics and General Relativity are both accepted
as scientific fact even though they're mutually exclusive.
Albert Einstein spent the second half of his life searching
for a unifying truth that would reconcile the two.
- Roy H. Williams

If we look at the way the universe behaves,
quantum mechanics gives us fundamental,
unavoidable indeterminacy, so that alternative histories
of the universe can be assigned probability.
- Murray Gell-Mann

Well, I've always thought that my career was in England,
really.
I used to do more in the theatre, and I felt that I should be there.
It's not far is it? It's amazing the way that special
FX have taken a quantum leap in what they're capable of doing.
- Albert Finney

According to the standard model billions of years ago
some little quantum fluctuation,
perhaps a slightly lower density of matter,
maybe right where we're sitting right now,
caused our galaxy to start collapsing around here.
- Seth Lloyd

If you start any large theory, such as quantum mechanics,
plate tectonics, evolution, it takes about 40 years
for mainstream science to come around.
Gaia has been going for only 30 years or so.
- James Lovelock

Quantum theory also tells us that the world is not simply objective;
somehow it's something more subtle than that.
In some sense it is veiled from us, but it has a structure that we can understand.
- John Polkinghorne

The scientists often have more unfettered imaginations
than current philosophers do.
Relativity theory came as a complete surprise to philosophers,
and so did quantum mechanics, and so did other things.
- Robert Nozick

But to do it professionally is a quantum leap difference
and my father had to be persuaded by these kind of
Ivy League professors that I should go to the Yale Drama School,
another one of the stories in there.
