Ludwig Boltzmann
O! immodest mortal! Your destiny is the joy of watching the evershifting battle!
Boltzmann quotes
I am conscious of being only an individual struggling weakly against the stream of time. But it still remains in my power to contribute in such a way that, when the theory of gases is again revived, not too much will have to be rediscovered.
Bring forward what is true, Write it so that it is clear, Defend it to your last breath!

Boltzmann Ludwig quotes
Which is more remarkable fact about America: that millionaires are idealists or idealists become millionaires.
Boltzmann Ludwig
Who sees the future? Let us have free scope for all directions of research; away with dogmatism, either atomistic or anti-atomistic!
Ludwig Boltzmann quotes
Philosophy gets on my nerves. If we analyze the ultimate ground of everything, then everything finally falls into nothingness. But I have decided to resume my lectures again and look the Hydra of doubt straight into the eye, and it be quite ominous if one values one's life.
Ludwig Boltzmann
The most ordinary things are to philosophy a source of insoluble puzzles. With infinite ingenuity it constructs a concept of space or time and then finds it absolutely impossible that there be objects in this space or that processes occur during this time.... the source of this kind of logic lies in excessive confidence in the so-called laws of thought.
Boltzmann Ludwig quotes
Available energy is the main object at stake in the struggle for existence and the evolution of the world.
