#1. Optics, developing in us through study, teach us to see. - Author: Paul Cezanne
Karakassis Optics quotes by Paul Cezanne
#2. In our judgment of human transactions, the law of optics is reversed; we see the most indistinctly the objects which are close around us. - Author: Richard Whately
Karakassis Optics quotes by Richard Whately
#3. We designed a number of features from the ground up, like custom display and optics technology with very high refresh rates and pixel density. We added integrated 3-D audio, a built-in microphone so you can speak to friends inside virtual worlds, and precise mechanical adjustment systems. - Author: Brendan Iribe
Karakassis Optics quotes by Brendan Iribe
#4. But optics sharp it needs, I ween, To see what is not to be seen. - Author: John Trumbull
Karakassis Optics quotes by John Trumbull
#5. Those close to [Patricia Highsmith], particularly her family, often commented on how Highsmith's vision of reality was a warped one. In April 1947, she transcribed into her notebook what was, presumably, a real dialogue between herself and her mother, in which Mary accused her of not facing the world. Highsmith replied that she did indeed view the world 'sideways, but since the world faces reality sideways, sideways is the only way the world can be looked at in true perspective.' The problem, Highsmith said, was that her psychic optics were different to those around her, but if that was the case, her mother replied, then she should equip herself with a pair of new spectacles. Highsmith was not convinced. 'Then I need a new birth,' she concluded. - Author: Andrew Wilson

Corso
Karakassis Optics quotes by Philip J. Corso
#7. And I still believe that there are two basic kinds of people--people who cultivate the narcissistic delusion of being watched at all times through the viewfinder of a camera, and people who cultivate the paranoid delusion of being watched at all times through the high-powered optics of a sniper's rifle, and I think I fall--and have always fallen--into this latter category. - Author: Mark Leyner
Karakassis Optics quotes by Mark Leyner
#8. There are a multitude of allied branches of knowledge connected with mans condition; the relation of these to political economy is analogous to the connexion of mechanics, astronomy, optics, sound, heat, and every other branch more or less of physical science, with pure mathematics. - Author: William Stanley Jevons
Karakassis Optics quotes by William Stanley Jevons
#9. David would wear no purple cloth, no symbols of his kingship, when he went to greet the ark. In its presence, we were all of us servants. - Author: Geraldine Brooks
Karakassis Optics quotes by Geraldine Brooks
#10. The difference is as great between The optics seeing as the objects seen. All manners take a tincture from our own; Or come discolor'd through out passions shown; Or fancy's beam enlarges, multiplies, Contracts, inverts, and gives ten thousand dyes. - Author: Alexander Pope
Karakassis Optics quotes by Alexander Pope
#11. Optimism is a matter optics, of seeing what you want to see and not seeing what you don't want to see. Hope, on the other hand, is a Christian virtue. It is the unblinking acknowledgment of all that militates against hope, and the unrelenting refusal to despair. We have not the right to despair, and, finally, we have not the reason to despair - Author: Richard John Neuhaus
Karakassis Optics quotes by Richard John Neuhaus
#12. Phase contrast was not discovered while working with a microscope, but in a different part of optics. - Author: Frits Zernike
Karakassis Optics quotes by Frits Zernike
#13. It will reward enough for me if, by the publication of the present experiment, I have directed the attention of investigators to this subject, which still promises much for physical optics and appears to open a new field. - Author: Joseph Von Fraunhofer
Karakassis Optics quotes by Joseph Von Fraunhofer
#14. In 'A Poetics of Optics,' Equi writes that 'all images bank on alchemy.' This idea captures her fundamental sense of poetry as turning common material into something rare and valuable. - Author: Floyd Skloot
Karakassis Optics quotes by Floyd Skloot
#15. The natural sciences have the clearest patterns. Physics admits of a lovely unification, not just at the level of fundamental forces, but when considering its extent and implications. Classifications like 'optics' or 'thermodynamics' are just straitjackets, preventing physicists from seeing countless intersections. Even putting aside aesthetics, the practical applications that have been overlooked are legion; years ago engineers could have been artificially generating spherically symmetric gravity fields. Having - Author: Ted Chiang
Karakassis Optics quotes by Ted Chiang
#16. God said, 'Let there be light.'

Here's a paraphrase:

Let there be electromagnetic radiation with varying wavelengths traveling at 186,282 miles per second. Let there be radiowaves, microwaves, and X-rays. Let there be photosynthesis and fiber optics. Let there be LASIK surgery, satellite communication, and suntans. Oh, and let there be rainbows after rainstorms.

'Let there be light.'

These are God's first recorded words.

This is God's first recorded miracle.

Light is the source of vision; without it we can't see a thing. Light is the key to technology; it's how we can talk to someone halfway around the world without so much as a second's delay because light can circle the globe seven and a half times a second. Light is the first link in the food chain; no photosynthesis equals no food. Light is the basis of health; the absence of light causes everything from vitamin D deficiency to depression. Light is the origin of energy; in Einstein's equation E = MC squared, energy (E) is defined as mass (M) times the speed of light (C) squared. The speed of light is the constant. And light is the measuring stick for space-time; a meter is defined as the distance traveled by light in a vacuum during a time interval of 1/299,792,458 of a second.

Light is the alpha and omega of everything, and that includes you. - Author: Mark Batterson
Karakassis Optics quotes by Mark Batterson
#17. But all this doesn´t happen effortlessly, as demonstrated by patients who surgically recover their eyesight after decades of blindless: they do not suddenly see the world, but instead must learn to see again. At first the world is buzzing, jangling barrage of shapes and colors, and even when the optics of their eyes are perfectly functional, their brain must learn how to interpret the data coming in. - Author: David Eagleman
Karakassis Optics quotes by David Eagleman
#18. Modern physics has changed nothing in the great classical disciplines of, for instance, mechanics, optics, and heat. Only the conception of hitherto unexplored regions, formed prematurely from a knowledge of only certain parts of the world, has undergone a decisive transformation. This conception, however, is always decisive for the future course of research. - Author: Werner Heisenberg
Karakassis Optics quotes by Werner Heisenberg
#19. surfing, writing, composing, and programming deep into the night, like it's the early 1980s with the hue of poison-green CRT illuminating the room, Nike running shoes on the floor, hair metal poster on the door, and everything is infinite, made of fibre optics and floppy disks . . . - Author: Mike Walker
Karakassis Optics quotes by Mike Walker
#20. Beauty is a question of optics. All sight is illusion. - Author: Joyce Carol Oates
Karakassis Optics quotes by Joyce Carol Oates
#21. The bar staff and croupiers all wore black with the same green triangle logo emblazoned on their shirts, and contact lenses which made their eyes shine an eerie, vibrant green. The bar optics glowed with the same green light, the intensity of which was linked to the music. As the bartender walked away to fetch the drinks, a breakdown in the techno track commenced and the bottles began to palpitate. The bartender's eyes glowed with a hallucinatory felinity that made Mangle feel nervous. - Author: R.D. Ronald
Karakassis Optics quotes by R.D. Ronald
#22. Modern broadcast television, with its digital boxes and fiber optics and orbiting geosynchronous satellites, has become a perfectly engineered slaughterhouse of time. - Author: Daniel R. Thorne
Karakassis Optics quotes by Daniel R. Thorne
#23. Law, in its most general and comprehensive sense, signifies a rule of action; and is applied indiscriminately to all kinds of action, whether animate, or inanimate, rational or irrational. Thus we say, the laws of motion, of gravitation, of optics, or mechanics, as well as the laws of nature and of nations. And it is that rule of action, which is prescribed by some superior, and which the inferior is bound to obey. - Author: William Blackstone
Karakassis Optics quotes by William Blackstone
#24. What the art historians had forgotten is that in Chinese, Japanese, Persian, and Indian art, they never painted shadows. Why did they paint shadows in European art? Shadows are because of optics. Optics need shadows and strong light. Strong light makes the deepest shadows. It took me a few years to realize fully that the art historians didn't grasp that. There are a lot of interesting new things, ideas, pictures. - Author: David Hockney
Karakassis Optics quotes by David Hockney
#25. To be honest, owls aren't the brightest of birds, amazing as they are; parrots and crows are much smarter. It's all in the eyes: those magnificent piercing optics are what make all owls look like they are deep in concentrated scrutiny and steeped in long-lost knowledge. - Author: Matt Sewell
Karakassis Optics quotes by Matt Sewell
#26. By the help of microscopes, there is nothing so small, as to escape our inquiry; hence there is a new visible world discovered to the understanding. - Author: Robert Hooke
Karakassis Optics quotes by Robert Hooke
#27. It may be in morals as it is in optics, the eye and the object may come too close to each other, to answer the end of vision. There are certain faults which press too near our self-love to be even perceptible to us. - Author: Hannah More
Karakassis Optics quotes by Hannah More
#28. But then, of course, one can peek through the fingers, which is not only pleasurable but a lesson in practical optics. - Author: James J. Gibson
Karakassis Optics quotes by James J. Gibson
#29. To ABDUCE (ABDU'CE) v.a.[Lat. abduco.]To draw to a different part; to withdraw one part from another.A word chiefly used in physic or science. And if we abduce the eye unto either corner, the object will not duplicate; for, in that position, the axis of the cones remain in the same plain, as is demonstrated in the optics delivered by Galen.Brown'sVulgar Errours,b. iii. c. 20. - Author: Samuel Johnson
Karakassis Optics quotes by Samuel Johnson
#30. Optimism and pessimism are mere matters of optics, of how you look at things, and that can change from day to day, or with a new prescription for your glasses - or with a new set of ideological filters. - Author: George Weigel
Karakassis Optics quotes by George Weigel
#31. This part of optics, when well understood, shows us how we may make things a very long distance off appear as if placed very close, and large near things appear very small, and how we may make small things placed at a distance appear any size we want, so that it may be possible for us to read the smallest letters at incredible distances, or to count sand, or seed, or any sort or minute objects. - Author: Robert Grosseteste
Karakassis Optics quotes by Robert Grosseteste
#32. Music is the arithmetic of sounds as optics is the geometry of light. - Author: Claude Debussy
Karakassis Optics quotes by Claude Debussy
#33. But concerning vision alone is a separate science formed among philosophers, namely, optics, and not concerning any other sense ... It is possible that some other science may be more useful, but no other science has so much sweetness and beauty of utility. Therefore it is the flower of the whole of philosophy and through it, and not without it, can the other sciences be known. - Author: Roger Bacon
Karakassis Optics quotes by Roger Bacon
#34. The author relates that Mickey Mantle did not expect to play one day and showed up extremely hung over. He was nevertheless called on to pitch and smashed a towering home run to an enthusiastic ovation. He related to his teammates, Those people don't know how tough that was. - Author: Jim Bouton
Karakassis Optics quotes by Jim Bouton
#35. Ollie-O was in a semicatatonic state, uttering nonsensical phrases like "This is not biodegradable - the downstream implications are enormous - the optics make for rough sledding - going forward -" before getting stuck on the words "epic fail," which he kept repeating. - Author: Maria Semple
Karakassis Optics quotes by Maria Semple
#36. The camera introduces us to unconscious optics as does psychoanalysis to unconscious impulses. - Author: Walter Benjamin
Karakassis Optics quotes by Walter Benjamin
#37. Bureaucratic categories and organizational boxes do more than simply separate relevant from irrelevant information. They also produce the social optics that policymakers and bureaucrats use to see the world. Before policymakers can act, they first must come to create a definition and understanding of the situation, and that understanding is mediated by how the institution is organized to think. ...How organizations categorize and carve up the world has a profound impact on how policymakers see the world. - Author: Michael Barnett
Karakassis Optics quotes by Michael Barnett
#38. There is a new way with very very tiny fiber optics, which give an enormous high resolution. There are many many thousand fibers, very very close together with a very small diameter. - Author: Lennart Nilsson
Karakassis Optics quotes by Lennart Nilsson
#39. The cinema implies a total inversion of values, a complete upheaval of optics, of perspective and logic. It is more exciting than phosphorus, more captivating than love. - Author: Antonin Artaud
Karakassis Optics quotes by Antonin Artaud
#40. The plane touches down on very rough ground: its wheelbarrow wheels bounce and one set of wings rises alarmingly while the other dips. Now the Masai and the plane are converging. It's a magnificent shot: the Masai run, run, run, run; because of the optics it is dreamlike. The little plane bounces, shudders, slews and finally makes lasting contact with the ground. At exactly the right moment, as the plane comes to a halt, the Masai warriors, in a highly agitated state, reach the plane, and the camera closes on the pilot, whose face as he removes his leather flying helmet and goggles, appears just above the bobbing red ochre composition of plaited hair and fat-shone bodies. It is Mel Gibson, with a grave expression, which can't quite suppress his unruly Aussieness. - Author: Justin Cartwright
Karakassis Optics quotes by Justin Cartwright
