Meandering to and fro . . .

Today is the birthday of Max Planck (April 23, 1858 – October 4, 1947), physicist. He is considered to be the founder of the quantum theory.

Max Planck was awarded the Nobel Prize in Physics in 1918.

"All matter originates and exists only by virtue of a force... We must assume behind this force the existence of a conscious and intelligent Mind. This Mind is the matrix of all matter." - Max Planck

"Anybody who has been seriously engaged is scientific work of any kind realizes that over the entrance to the gates of the temple of science are written the words: Ye must have faith. - Max Planck

"Science cannot solve the ultimate mystery of nature. And that is because, in the last analysis, we ourselves are a part of the mystery that we are trying to solve." - Max Planck

"Whence come I and whither go I? That is the great unfathomable question, the same for every one of us. Science has no answer to it." - Max Planck
