“All science is either physics or stamp collecting.”

Quote by Ernest Rutherford.

 

Meaning, from Wikiquote:

  • That which is not measurable is not science. That which is not physics is stamp collecting.
  • Physics is the only real science. The rest are just stamp collecting.
  • That which is not measurable is not science. — (which is also attributed to Lord Kelvin)
