Top 10 most inspiring quotes by niels bohr

  • An expert is a person who has made all the mistakes that can be made in a very narrow field.
  • The opposite of a correct statement is a false statement. But the opposite of a profound truth may well be another profound truth.
  • How wonderful that we have met with a paradox. Now we have some hope of making progress.
  • Those who are not shocked when they first come across quantum theory cannot possibly have understood it.
  • 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.
  • The meaning of life consists in the fact that it makes no sense to say that life has no meaning.
  • Every great and deep difficulty bears in itself it’s own solution. It forces us to change our thinking in order to find it.
  • There are trivial truths and there are great truths. The opposite of a trivial truth is plainly false. The opposite of a great truth is also true.
  • You can recognize a small truth because its opposite is a falsehood. The opposite of a great truth is another truth.
  • You must come to Copenhagen to work with us. We like people who can actually perform thought experiments!
Niels Bohr

Niels Bohr (1885-1962) was a Danish physicist who made significant contributions to the development of atomic theory and quantum mechanics. He was born in Copenhagen, Denmark, and grew up in a family of prominent academics. He received his doctorate in physics from the University of Copenhagen in 1911.

Bohr’s most significant contribution to physics was the development of a new atomic model. His model, known as the Bohr model, proposed that electrons travel in specific orbits around the nucleus of an atom. These orbits were determined by the energy of the electrons, which could only exist in discrete energy states. This work led to a better understanding of the structure of atoms and the behavior of electrons.

Bohr was also instrumental in the development of quantum mechanics, which is the study of the behavior of particles on a very small scale. He was a key participant in the famous Solvay Conference of 1927, where he and other physicists discussed the emerging field of quantum mechanics.

In 1922, Bohr was awarded the Nobel Prize in Physics for his work on atomic theory. He continued to work in physics throughout his life and made important contributions to many areas of the field, including nuclear physics and particle physics.

Bohr was also known for his advocacy of peaceful uses of atomic energy and for his role in the creation of the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO). He died in Copenhagen in 1962.
