Subject: Source of quotation about Physics in the 20th century
For many years, I have been on the track of a quotation from (as I recall) a
noted physicist in the early part of the 20th century. All attempts have
failed, and the reference librarians at my university admit defeat. (Against
the chance that I had previous posted this query, I searched our database
for my name and for the quote but found neither.)
Here is the quote as I remember it and what I believe are the references the
physicist had in mind.
"Science in the 20th century is about the very large, the very small, the
very fast and the very slow."
evolution and geological change
Can anybody give me a source for that quote?
