You may have heard the world is made up of atoms and molecules, but it's really made up of stories. When you sit with an individual that's been here, you can give quantitative data a qualitative overlay. William Turner
[ Atoms Been Data Give Heard Here Individual Made May Molecules Qualitative Quantitative Really Sit Stories Up World]
Traditional academic science describes human beings as highly developed animals and biological thinking machines. We appear to be Newtonian objects made of atoms, molecules, cells, tissues, and organs. Stanislav Grof
[ Academic Animals Appear Atoms Beings Biological Cells Describes Developed Highly Human Machines Made Molecules Newtonian Objects Organs Science Thinking Tissues Traditional]
Poets say science takes away from the beauty of the stars - mere globs of gas atoms. I, too, can see the stars on a desert night, and feel them. But do I see less or more? Richard P. Feynman
[ Atoms Away Beauty Desert Feel Gas Less Mere More Night Poets Say Science See Stars Takes Them Too]
Nanotechnology is manufacturing with atoms. William Powell

Nothing exists except atoms and empty space; everything else is opinion. Democritus

When it comes to atoms, language can be used only as in poetry. The poet, too, is not nearly so concerned with describing facts as with creating images. Niels Bohr
[ Atoms Comes Concerned Creating Describing Facts Images Language Nearly Only Poet Poetry Too Used]
We shall never get people whose time is money to take much interest in atoms. Samuel Butler
[ Atoms Get Interest Money Much Never Shall Take Time Whose]
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
[ Atoms Concerned Dimensions Everyday Extra Far Individually Just Life Many Perceived See Tiny Together Very]
Now where there are no parts, there neither extension, nor shape, nor divisibility is possible. And these monads are the true atoms of nature and, in a word, the elements of things. Gottfried Leibniz
[ Atoms Elements Extension Nature Neither Nor Now Parts Possible Shape These Things True Where Word]
We may say that a basic substance is one which has a lone pair of electrons which may be used to complete the stable group of another atom, and that an acid is one which can employ a lone pair from another molecule in completing the stable group of one of its own atoms. Gilbert Newton Lewis
[ Acid Another Atom Atoms Basic Complete Completing Electrons Employ Group Lone May Molecule Own Pair Say Stable Substance Used Which]
The radical novelty of modern science lies precisely in the rejection of the belief, which is at the heart of all popular religion, that the forces which move the stars and atoms are contingent upon the preferences of the human heart. Richard Adams
[ Atoms Belief Contingent Forces Heart Human Lies Modern Move Novelty Popular Precisely Preferences Radical Rejection Religion Science Stars Upon Which]
If we conceive all the changes in the physical world as reducible to the motion of atoms, motions generated by means of the fixed nuclear forces of those atoms, the whole of the world could thus be known by means of the natural sciences. Wilhelm Dilthey
[ Atoms Changes Conceive Could Fixed Forces Generated Known Means Motion Motions Natural Nuclear Physical Reducible Sciences Those Thus Whole World]
For under certain conditions the chemical atoms emit light waves of a specific length or oscillation frequency - their familiar characteristic spectra - and these can come in the form of electromagnetic waves only from accelerated electric quanta. Johannes Stark
[ Accelerated Atoms Certain Characteristic Chemical Come Conditions Electric Electromagnetic Emit Familiar Form Frequency Length Light Only Oscillation Quanta Specific Their These Under Waves]
A physicist is an atom's way of knowing about atoms. George Wald
[ Atom Atoms Knowing Physicist Way]
The mind of man has perplexed itself with many hard questions. Is space infinite, and in what sense? Is the material world infinite in extent, and are all places within that extent equally full of matter? Do atoms exist or is matter infinitely divisible? James C. Maxwell
[ Atoms Divisible Equally Exist Extent Full Hard Infinite Infinitely Itself Man Many Material Matter Mind Perplexed Places Questions Sense Space Within World]
In order to figure out how to make atoms compute, you have to learn how to speak their language and to understand how they process information under normal circumstances. Seth Lloyd
[ Atoms Circumstances Compute Figure How Information Language Learn Make Normal Order Out Process Speak Their Under Understand]
The actual atoms and molecules that make up my brain and body today are not the same ones that I was born with on September 8, 1954, a half-century ago this month. Michael Shermer
[ Actual Ago Atoms Body Born Brain Make Molecules Month Ones Same September Today Up]
Man is born passionate of body, but with an innate though secret tendency to the love of Good in his main-spring of Mind. But God help us all! It is at present a sad jar of atoms. Lord Byron
[ Atoms Body Born God Good Help His Innate Jar Love Man Mind Passionate Present Sad Secret Tendency Though Us]
It would be a poor thing to be an atom in a universe without physicists, and physicists are made of atoms. A physicist is an atom's way of knowing about atoms. George Wald
[ Atom Atoms Knowing Made Physicist Physicists Poor Thing Universe Way Without Would]
After realizing that we would eventually be able to build molecular machines that could arrange atoms to form virtually any pattern that we wanted, I saw that an awful lot of consequences followed from that. K. Eric Drexler
[ Able After Any Arrange Atoms Awful Build Consequences Could Eventually Followed Form Lot Machines Molecular Pattern Realizing Saw Virtually Wanted Would]
Knowledge of the self is the mother of all knowledge. So it is incumbent on me to know my self, to know it completely, to know its minutiae, its characteristics, its subtleties, and its very atoms. Khalil Gibran
[ Atoms Characteristics Completely Incumbent Know Knowledge Minutiae Mother Self Subtleties Very]
It is more likely that more than a century will pass before we know the structure of the chemical atoms as thoroughly as we do our solar system. Johannes Stark
[ Atoms Before Century Chemical Know Likely More Our Pass Solar Structure System Than Thoroughly Will]
The atoms become like a moth, seeking out the region of higher laser intensity. Steven Chu
[ Atoms Become Higher Intensity Laser Moth Out Region Seeking]
Moreover, the abundance of chemical compounds and their importance in daily life hindered the chemist from investigating the question, in what does the individuality of the atoms of different elements consist. Johannes Stark
