The Say of the Week November 20, 2007

Posted by dorigo in physics.

If I have seen further than others, it is because I was standing in between the shoulders of dwarfs.”

 S.Coleman (via Betsy Devine)

That quote (with a slightly different wording) is usually attributed to Gell-Mann.

Allthough i rarely read your blog, it’s allways a delight.
IMHO it’s much better than our “introduction to physics” lecture.

Really Thomas ? I did not know that. Anyway, I will leave it as a Coleman quote – he deserves one.

Jcn, thank you for your encouragement. I will try to post more introductory physics pieces soon. I need to finish the one on top quark history also.
