… and nevertheless it sounds like poetry

Posted by concettinasfienti on March 23, 2015

I do not see how a man can work on the frontiers of physics and write poetry at the same time. They are in opposition. In science you want to say something that nobody knew before, in words which everyone can understand. In poetry you are bound to say … something that everyone knows already in words that nobody can understand.
P.A.M. Dirac
