Stephen Wolfram Quotes and Sayings

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

There are a few very small incompatible changes -
I really doubt most people will ever run into them.
- Stephen Wolfram

The thing that got me started on the science that I've
been building now for about 20 years or so was the question of okay,
if mathematical equations can't make progress in understanding
complex phenomena in the natural world,
how might we make progress?
- Stephen Wolfram

The most important precedents deal with the whole idea
of symbolic programming -
the notion of setting up symbolic expressions that
can represent anything one wants,
and then having functions that operate on both their structure and content.
- Stephen Wolfram

You kind of alluded to it in your introduction.
I mean, for the last 300 or so years,
the exact sciences have been dominated by what is really a good idea,
which is the idea that one can describe the natural
world using mathematical equations.
- Stephen Wolfram

 

So the thing I realized rather gradually -
I must say starting about 20 years ago now that we
know about computers and things -
there's a possibility of a more general basis for rules to describe nature.
- Stephen Wolfram

Well, the first thing to say is that we've worked hard
to maintain compatibility,
so that any program written with an earlier version
of Mathematica can run without change in 3.0,
and any notebook can be converted.
- Stephen Wolfram

The fact that the same symbolic programming primitives
work for those as work for math kinds of things,
I think, really validates the idea of symbolic programming
being something pretty general.
- Stephen Wolfram

Life repeats itself mindlessly -
unless you become mindful, it will go on repeating like a wheel.
That's why Buddhists call it the wheel of life and death,
the wheel of time.
It moves like a wheel: birth is followed by death,
death is followed by birth;
love is followed by hate, hate is followed by love;
success is followed by failure,
failure is followed by success. Just see!
If you can watch just for a few days,
you will see a pattern emerging, a wheel pattern.
One day, a fine morning, you are feeling so good and so happy,
and another day you are so dull,
so dead that you start thinking of committing suicide.
And just the other day you were so full of life,
so blissful that you were feeling thankful to God,
that you were in a mood of deep gratefulness,
and today there is great complaint
and you don't see the point why one should go on living...
And it goes on and on, but you don't see the pattern.
Once you see the pattern, you can get out of it.
- Osho

few real and lasting products of human endeavor.

We are all "neighbors."
Our world has gotten too small for us to be anything else.
We can no longer have "us" and "them" - friends and enemies.
A person from Iraq, or Russia, or Columbia is
no more a stranger or enemy than a person from across town.
A few people everywhere are troublemakers.
Every religion provokes a few people to become extremists.
Do we need police around the globe? Unfortunately, we always will.
Do we need war? Does that question even deserve an answer?

of the very few things that lifts human life
a little above the level of farce,
