Engineering & Science Notable Tech Quote Archive #26

The number of statements uttered verbally and/or in print is uncountable. Some are more noteworthy than others either because of sheer brilliance, good humor, or utter inanity. We all hope our own remembered words, if any, fall into one of the first two categories rather than the third. I do a lot of reading and find many notable quotes to use that fit the theme of RF Cafe; they fall into all three categories. Enjoy.

  • "President Kennedy's address to the Irish Parliament in June 1963 - RF Cafe Notable QuoteThe problems of the world cannot possibly be solved by skeptics or cynics, whose horizons are limited by the obvious realities. We need men who can dream of things that never were, and ask why not." - President Kennedy's address to the Irish Parliament in June 1963, JFK Presidential Library
  • "Notable Quote for April 14, 2015 - RF CafeIncome Equality to most politicians is taking from people who work for a living and giving it to people who vote for a living." - Anon
  • "Peppermint PattyNothing spoils numbers faster than arithmetic!" - Peppermint Patty, from the Peanuts comic strip by Charles M. Schulz. The Peanuts comic strip has been a lifelong favorite of mine.
  • "Star Wars R2-D2 Interactive Astromech Droid - RF Cafe Notable QuoteR2-D2" - Walter Murch, sound designer for the film American Graffiti. That's film lingo for "reel two, dialog two," and is what Mr. Murch had said to producer George Lucas during the editing process. Lucas was also in the process of writing the script for Star Wars and needed a name for his robot. Seen in the November 2013 edition of Smithsonian magazine (p 81).
  • "If you think there's no big deal about those two little letters 'E' and 'X', just ask my wife if she is the same as my ex-wife." - RF Cafe visitor Mr. Steve Gilbert, in response to my Day in History item for March 4th. In it, I stated, "1930: President Calvin Coolidge dedicated the Coolidge Dam on Gila River in AZ." Steve's comment was in regard to my use of "President" vs. "Ex-President." Technically, it is correct to refer to an ex-president as "President," but I laughed so hard at his comment that I had to ask for permission to post it.
  • "Buzz Lightyear (Toy Story) Aldrin - RF CafeThere's no doubt who was a leader in space after the Apollo Program. Nobody came close to us. And our education system, in science, technology, engineering, and math, was at the top of the world. It's no longer there. We're descending rather rapidly." -- Buzz Aldrin, former NASA astronaut and second person to walk on the moon (Source: Wikipedia) Buzz is one of my all-time favorite astronauts, and is the namesake of Toy Story's Buzz Lightyear.
  • "There is also the great driving force which we know under the name of religion. From religion comes a man's purpose ; from science, his power to achieve it. Sometimes people ask if religion and science are not opposed to one another. They are: in the sense that the thumb and fingers of my hand are opposed to one another. It is an opposition by means of which anything can be grasped. It is right, therefore, with all our heart to learn what will help us in the work we want to do, so that when the call comes we can say, 'I am here and ready; I want to play my part, and I have tried to fit myself to play it well.'" - Sir William Henry Bragg, Nobel Laureate, from "The World of Sound" lecture at the Royal Institution, Christmas 1919.
