Theories Of Relativity Quotes

Theories Of Relativity Quotes by Robert Breault, Bertrand Russell, Arthur Eddington, Paul Dirac, Javad Alizadeh, Jacob Epstein and many others.

Every great artist raises art to a science, and every g

Every great artist raises art to a science, and every great scientist raises science to an art, hence we have Michelangelo’s David and Einstein’s Theory of Relativity.
Robert Breault
Upon hearing via Littlewood an exposition on the theory of relativity: To think I have spent my life on absolute muck.
Bertrand Russell
Asked in 1919 whether it was true that only three people in the world understood the theory of general relativity, [Eddington] allegedly replied: “Who’s the third?”
Arthur Eddington
What makes the theory of relativity so acceptable to physicists in spite of its going against the principle of simplicity is its great mathematical beauty. This is a quality which cannot be defined, any more than beauty in art can be defined, but which people who study mathematics usually have no difficulty in appreciating.
Paul Dirac
The 4D style, or cosmic comics and relativistic humor, is based on Einstein’s theory of relativity which I came up with 20 years ago. 4D works use the idea of the fourth dimension, time, playing on such surrealistic and amazing subjects as motion relativity, space curvature and time dilation.
Javad Alizadeh
When I was doing Professor Albert Einstein’s bust he had many a jibe at the Nazi professors, one hundred of whom had condemned his theory of relativity in a book. ‘Were I wrong,’ he said, ‘one professor would have been enough.
Jacob Epstein
It is ironic that Einsteins most creative work, the general theory of relativity, should boil down to conceptualizing space as a medium when his original premise [in special relativity] was that no such medium existed[..].
Robert B. Laughlin
Einstein’s theory of relativity does a fantastic job for explaining big things. Quantum mechanics is fantastic for the other end of the spectrum – for small things.
Brian Greene
Well, it has done terrifying things. Religious ideas are inflammatory in a way that I find difficult to understand. There are very few wars over the theory of relativity. Very few heated arguments, for that matter. Whereas, in Northern Ireland, they are killing one another over religion.
Quentin Crisp
No, I don’t understand my husband’s theory of relativity, but I know my husband and I know he can be trusted.
Elsa Einstein
Imagination is more important than knowledge. Knowledge is limited. Imagination encircles the world.
Albert Einstein
It is almost impossible to have a baseless snobbish opinion of the General Theory of Relativity.
Michael Moorcock
The Theory of Relativity confers an absolute meaning on a magnitude which in classical theory has only a relative significance: the velocity of light. The velocity of light is to the Theory of Relativity as the elementary quantum of action is to the Quantum Theory: it is its absolute core.
Max Planck
Einstein, in the special theory of relativity, proved that different observers, in different states of motion, see different realities.
Leonard Susskind
Time travel used to be thought of as just science fiction, but Einstein’s general theory of relativity allows for the possibility that we could warp space-time so much that you could go off in a rocket and return before you set out.
Stephen Hawking
What lead me more or less directly to the special theory of relativity was the conviction that the electromotive force acting on a body in motion in a magnetic field was nothing else but an electric field.
Albert Einstein
Early-twentieth-century abstraction is art’s version of Einstein’s Theory of Relativity. It’s the idea that changed everything everywhere: quickly, decisively, for good.
