How wonderful that we have met with a paradox. Now we have some hope of making progress.
Niels Bohr   Category:

If anybody says he can think about quantum physics without getting giddy, that only shows he has not understood the first thing about them.
Niels Bohr   Category:

If quantum mechanics hasn't profoundly shocked you, you haven't understood it yet.
Niels Bohr   Category:

It is wrong to think that the task of physics is to find out how Nature is. Physics concerns what we say about Nature.
Niels Bohr   Category:

Never express yourself more clearly than you are able to think.
Niels Bohr   Category:

No, no, you're not thinking; you're just being logical.
Niels Bohr   Category:

Prediction is very difficult, especially if it's about the future.
Niels Bohr   Category:

Technology has advanced more in the last thirty years than in the previous two thousand. The exponential increase in advancement will only continue. Anthropological Commentary The opposite of a trivial truth is false; the opposite of a great truth is also true.
Niels Bohr   Category:

The best weapon of a dictatorship is secrecy, but the best weapon of a democracy should be the weapon of openness.
Niels Bohr   Category:

The opposite of a fact is falsehood, but the opposite of one profound truth may very well be another profound truth.
Niels Bohr   Category:

There are some things so serious you have to laugh at them.
Niels Bohr   Category:

There are trivial truths and the great truths. The opposite of a trivial truth is plainly false. The opposite of a great truth is also true.
Niels Bohr   Category:

We are all agreed that your theory is crazy. The question which divides us is whether it is crazy enough to have a chance of being correct. My own feeling is that it is not crazy enough.
Niels Bohr   Category:

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   Category:

You are not thinking. You are merely being logical.
Niels Bohr   Category:

Your theory is crazy, but it's not crazy enough to be true.
