Richard P. Feynman Quotes

Richard P. Feynman Quotes: If I say [electrons] behave like particles I give the wrong impression; also if I say they behave like waves.

Quotes about Richard P. Feynman: For far more marvelous is the truth than any artists of the past imagined it. Why do the poets of the present not speak of it?

We have found it of paramount importance that in order to progress we must recognize our ignorance and leave room for doubt. Scientific knowledge is a body of statements of varying degrees of uncertainty-some most unsure, some nearly sure, but none absolutely certain.
