My Favourite Quotes of Scientists

Updated on August 31, 2013

The wisdom of our ancestors

I love to read about famous and great personalities of our past, and especially I love to watch the life stories of scientists. They always have something to say, something that can actually move our own life in some direction. So there are my five most favorite quotations of scientists, especially the last one I like really much.

Research is what I'm doing when I don't know what I'm doing.

~Wernher Von Braun

Science is a wonderful thing if one does not have to earn one's living at it.

~Albert Einstein

What is is what must be.

~Gottfried Wilhelm von Leibnitz

I have deep faith that the principle of the universe will be beautiful and simple.

~Albert Einstein

A scientific truth does not triumph by convincing its opponents and making them see the light, but rather because its opponents eventually die and a new generation grows up that is familiar with it.

~Max Planck

      I wish I was clever enough to think of a few quotes as thoughtful and funny as some of these. While I don't have the brains for it, I am, however, rapidly cultivating the Einstein hairdo!

      I love quotes! I add artists' quotes on my lenses and on my website. They just speak to me. Thinking that these people said these things when there were much less distractions in the world; less pressure, less audience, less greed...Just simple wisdom. The kind of things we'd say if we stopped to think once in a while!
