Quotes about Niels Bohr: We depend on our words...Our task is to communicate experience and ideas to others. We must strive continually to extend the scope of our description, but in such a way that our messages do not thereby lose their objective or unambiguous character...We are suspended in language in such a way that we cannot say what is up and what is down. The word 'reality' is also a word, a word which we must learn to use correctly.

Sayings about Niels Bohr: Physics is to be regarded not so much as the study of something a priori given, but rather as the development of methods of ordering and surveying human experience.
