John A. Wheeler quotes

How come quantum? How come existence?

Behind it all is surely an idea so simple, so beautiful, that when we grasp it - in a decade, a century, or a millennium - we will all say to each other, how could it have been otherwise? How could we have been so stupid?

If you haven't found something strange during the day, it hasn't been much of a day.

In order to more fully understand this reality, we must take into account other dimensions of a broader reality.

No phenomenon is a real phenomenon until it is an observed phenomenon.

Time is what keeps things from happening all at once.

To hate is to study, to study is to understand, to understand is to appreciate, to appreciate is to love. So maybe I'll end up loving your theory.

We live on an island surrounded by a sea of ignorance. As our island of knowledge grows, so does the shore of our ignorance.
