Edward Witten Quotes and Sayings
Quotes by Edward Witten

I hope you like these Edward Witten quotes from my collection of quotes about life.

If I take the theory as we have it now,
literally, I would conclude that extra dimensions really exist.
They're part of nature.
We don't really know how big they are yet,
but we hope to explore that in various ways.
- Edward Witten

Even before string theory, especially as physics developed in the 20th century,
it turned out that the equations that really work in
describing nature with the most generality and the
greatest simplicity are very elegant and subtle.
- Edward Witten

Spreading out the particle into a string is a step
in the direction of making everything we're familiar with fuzzy.
You enter a completely new world where things aren't
at all what you're used to.
- Edward Witten

Technically you need the extra dimensions.
At first people didn't like them too much,
but they've got a big benefit, which is that the ability
of string theory to describe all the elementary particles
and their forces along with gravity depends on using the extra dimensions.
- Edward Witten

 

As far as extra dimensions are concerned,
very tiny extra dimensions wouldn't be perceived in everyday life,
just as atoms aren't: we see many atoms together but
we don't see atoms individually.
- Edward Witten

One of the basic things about a string is that it can
vibrate in many different shapes or forms,
which gives music its beauty.
- Edward Witten

As for the forces, electromagnetism and gravity we
experience in everyday life.
But the weak and strong forces are beyond our ordinary experience.
So in physics, lots of the basic building blocks take 20th-
or perhaps 21st-century equipment to explore.

As of now, string theorists have no explanation of
why there are three large dimensions as well as time,
and the other dimensions are microscopic.
Proposals about that have been all over the map.
- Edward Witten

It's indeed surprising that replacing the elementary
particle with a string leads to such a big change in things.
I'm tempted to say that it has to do with the fuzziness it introduces.
- Edward Witten

But the beauty of Einstein's equations,
for example, is just as real to anyone who's experienced
it as the beauty of music.
We've learned in the 20th century that the equations
that work have inner harmony.
- Edward Witten

String theory is an attempt at a deeper description
of nature by thinking of an elementary particle not
as a little point but as a little loop of vibrating string.
- Edward Witten

Having those extra dimensions and therefore many ways
the string can vibrate in many different directions
turns out to be the key to being able to describe all
the particles that we see.
- Edward Witten

So when you ask me how string theory might be tested,
I can tell you what's likely to happen at accelerators
or some parts of the theory that are likely to be tested.
- Edward Witten

There was a long history of speculation that in quantum gravity,
unlike Einstein's classical theory, it might be possible
for the topology of spacetime to change.
- Edward Witten

On the other hand, we don't understand the theory too completely,
and because of this fuzziness of spacetime,
the very concept of spacetime and spacetime dimensions isn't precisely defined.
- Edward Witten

In Einstein's general relativity the structure of space
can change but not its topology.
Topology is the property of something that doesn't
change when you bend it or stretch it as long as you don't break anything.
- Edward Witten

Quantum mechanics brought an unexpected fuzziness into
physics because of quantum uncertainty,
the Heisenberg uncertainty principle.
- Edward Witten

The theory has to be interpreted that extra dimensions
beyond the ordinary four dimensions the three spatial
dimensions plus time are sufficiently small that they
haven't been observed yet.
- Edward Witten

I wouldn't have thought that a wrong theory should
lead us to understand better the ordinary quantum field
theories or to have new insights about the quantum states of black holes.
- Edward Witten

You have that one basic string, but it can vibrate in many ways.
But we're trying to get a lot of particles because
experimental physicists have discovered a lot of particles.
- Edward Witten

Take time to play!
Ask for what you want.
Laugh.
Live loudly.
Be avid.
Learn a new thing.
Be Yourself!
- Mary Anne Radmacher PHOTO

Don't Take Anything Personally.
Nothing others do is because of you.
- Miguel Angel Ruiz (don Miguel Ruiz) PHOTO

Choose Inner Peace.
Nothing is worth losing your inner peace.
Take action as circumstances require,
but never surrender your inner peace.
Stop. Breathe deeply.
Close your eyes and breathe deeply again.
Then, and only then, take action -
from a peaceful heart.
- Jonathan Lockwood Huie PHOTO

Life is not measured by the number of breaths we take,
but by the moments that take our breath away.
- Anonymous

Every tomorrow has two handles.
We can take hold of it with the handle of anxiety
or the handle of faith.

If you don't know where you're going,
any road will take you there.

Our "Rainbows and Butterflies" are the small miracles of our life -
the little things that are so easy to overlook,
yet so awe inspiring when we take a moment
to notice and to pay attention.
Give thanks for the rainbows, for the butterflies,
for all God's creatures - large and small,
for the bright blue sky and the soft fog and the gentle rain,
for the tree veiled in the season's first frost,
for the baby's laugh,
for the touch of a hand and the whispered "I love you."
- Jonathan Lockwood Huie

you can't cross a chasm in two small jumps.

and the word happy would lose its meaning
if it were not balanced by sadness.

with patience and equanimity.
