Famous Velocity Quotes

  1. “I like physics. I think it is the best science out of all three of them because generally, it’s more useful. You learn about speed and velocity and time, and that’s all clever stuff.” ~ Tom Felton
  2. “An observer can’t tell if a person is silent and still because inner life has stalled or because inner life is transfixingly busy.” ~ Susanna Kaysen
  3. “The velocity with which time flies is infinite, as is most apparent to those who look back.” ~ Seneca the Younger

  5. “Here I am Rock You Like a Hurricane.” ~ Dave Eggers
  6. “In bodies moved, the motion is received, increased, diminished, or lost, according to the relations of the quantity of matter and velocity; each diversity is uniformity, each change is constancy.” ~ Baron de Montesquieu
  7. “Market leadership can translate directly to higher revenue, higher profitability, greater capital velocity and correspondingly stronger returns on invested capital.” ~ Jeff Bezos
  8. “Find your speed, maintain your velocity, keep it up, keep it consistent, and stay in the pocket.” ~ Sonny Barger

  9. “In turning from the smaller instruments in frequent use to the larger and more important machines, the economy arising from the increase of velocity becomes more striking.” ~ Charles Babbage
  10. “I am sensible of the velocity of the moments, and entering that part of my head alert to the motion of the world I am aware that life was never perfect, never absolute. This bestows contentment, even a fearlessness.” ~ Harold Brodkey
  11. “After the planet becomes theirs, many millions of years will have to pass before a beetle particularly loved by God, at the end of its calculations will find written on a sheet of paper in letters of fire that energy is equal to the mass multiplied by the square of the velocity of light. The new kings of the world will live tranquilly for a long time, confining themselves to devouring each other and being parasites among each other on a cottage industry scale.” ~ Primo Levi
  12. “We shall probably never attain the power of measuring the velocity of nervous action; for we have not the opportunity of comparing its propagation through immense space, as we have in the case of light.” ~ Johannes Peter Muller

  13. “The proportion between the velocity with which men or animals move, and the weights they carry, is a matter of considerable importance, particularly in military affairs.” ~ Charles Babbage
  14. “By allowing the positive ions to pass through an electric field and thus giving them a certain velocity, it is possible to distinguish them from the neutral, stationary atoms.” ~ Johannes Stark
  15. “Windmills, which are used in the great plains of Holland and North Germany to supply the want of falling water, afford another instance of the action of velocity. The sails are driven by air in motion – by wind.” ~ Hermann von Helmholtz
  16. “A beam of luminous hydrogen canal rays has, owing to its velocity, exactly the same direction as that of the electric field in which it may be made to move.” ~ Johannes Stark

  17. “And from a poise at this station the plane may swoop down, at great disadvantage if close to the back of the wave, at various slopes and directions till it cuts into the air that is being raised by the face of the following wave, which again enables it to resume its velocity.” ~ Lawrence Hargrave
  18. “Now, the velocity of wave propagation can be seen, without the aid of any mathematical analysis, to depend on the elasticity of the medium and its density; for we can see that if a medium is highly elastic the disturbance would be propagated at a great speed.” ~ Albert A. Michelson
  19. “I came to realize in my late 20s that my velocity is not going to grow so I had to learn to utilize what I had.” ~ Jamie Moyer
  20. “The soundest argument will produce no more conviction in an empty head than the most superficial declamation; as a feather and a guinea fall with equal velocity in a vacuum.” ~ Charles Caleb Colton

  21. “Industrial man—a sentient reciprocating engine having a fluctuating output, coupled to an iron wheel revolving with uniform velocity. And then we wonder why this should be the golden age of revolution and mental derangement.” ~ Aldous Huxley
  22. “It is through many lifetimes of shifting the aggregate of the self that one finally reaches a point of maximum velocity whereby one can snap off the circle completely and move into freedom.” ~ Frederick Lenz
  23. “Each ray of light moves in the coordinate system ‘at rest’ with the definite, constant velocity V independent of whether this ray of light is emitted by a body at rest or a body in motion.” ~ Albert Einstein
  24. “The great weight of the ship may indeed prevent her from acquiring her greatest velocity; but when she has attained it, she will advance by her own intrinsic motion, without gaining any new degree of velocity, or lessening what she has acquired.” ~ William Falconer

  25. “Why let your fury lay deep inside you, sullenly boiling your blood into silent steam and griding your bones to dust? I it not better to thrust it out with great velocity from every pore, with your every action? Let your actions speak your legend. The physical is the manifestation of the spirit. Let your spirit be teeming with fury. Let your strength be unusual and controlled. The average is the borderline that keeps mere men in their place. Those who step over the line are heroes by the very act. Go.” ~ Henry Rollins
  26. “Morality—like velocity—is relative. The determination of it depends on what the objects around you are doing. All one can do is measure one’s position in relation to them; never can one measure one’s velocity or morality in terms of absolutes.” ~ David Gerrold
  27. “When the velocity of progress increases beyond a certain point, it becomes indistinguishable from crisis.” ~ Owen Barfield
  28. “But the velocities of the velocities – the second, third, fourth, and fifth velocities, etc. – exceed, if I mistake not, all human understanding.” ~ George Berkeley

  29. “The following passage is one of those cited by Copernicus himself in his preface to De Revolutionibus: “The Syracusan Hicetas, as Theophrastus asserts, holds the view that the heaven, sun, moon, stars, and in short all of the things on high are stationary, and that nothing in the world is in motion except the earth, which by revolving and twisting round its axis with extreme velocity produces all the same results as would be produced if the earth were stationary and the heaven in motion. . . .”” ~ Marcus Tullius Cicero
  30. “Madness is not what it seems. Time stops. All my life I’ve been obsessed with time, its motion and velocity, the way it works you over, the way it rushes you onward, a pebble turning in a brook. I’ve always been obsessed with where I’d go, and what I’d do, and how I would live. I’ve always harbored a desperate hope that I would make something of myself. Not then. Time stopped seeming so much like the thing that would transform me into something worthwhile and began to be inseparable from death. I spent my time merely waiting.” ~ Marya Hornbacher
  31. “She continued weeping until the heat of her tear water, the sheer velocity of its flow, finally obscured the already vague circumstances of its origins.” ~ Tom Robbins
  32. “Love is implicit in every connection. It should be. Thus when absent it makes us insane. (You Shall Know Our Velocity)” ~ Dave Eggers

  33. “Excellence matters and technology advances so fast that the potential for improvement is tremendous. So, since becoming CEO again, I’ve pushed hard to increase our velocity, improve our execution, and focus on the big bets that will make a difference in the world.” ~ Larry Page
  34. “The great spirals, with their enormous radial velocities and insensible proper motions, apparently lie outside our Solar system.” ~ Edwin Powell Hubble
  35. “Technology to me does two things: it increases the velocity of communication and increases the number of people who can participate. That’s it. That’s really all technology for our entire history has ever done.” ~ Jack Dorsey
  36. “Arc, amplitude and curvature sustain a similar relation to each other as time, motion, and velocity, or as volume, mass, and density.” ~ Carl Friedrich Gauss

  37. “I use high velocity to keep hitters off balance.” ~ Justin Verlander
  38. “Acid is not for every brain …. Only the healthy, happy, wholesome, handsome, hopeful, humorous, high-velocity should seek these experiences. This elitism is totally self-determined. Unless you are self-confident, self-directed, self-selected, please abstain.” ~ Timothy Leary
  39. “If the genius of invention were to reveal to-morrow the secret of immortality, of eternal beauty and youth, for which all humanity is aching, the same inexorable agents which prevent a mass from changing suddenly its velocity would likewise resist the force of the new knowledge until time gradually modifies human thought.” ~ Nikola Tesla
  40. “No! Please! I’ll tell you whatever you want to know!” the man yelled. “Really?” said Vimes. “What’s the orbital velocity of the moon?” “What?” “Oh, you’d like something simpler?” ~ Terry Pratchett

  41. “For these two years I have been gravitating towards your doctrines, and since the publication of your primula paper with accelerated velocity. By about this time next year I expect to have shot past you, and to find you pitching into me for being more Darwinian than yourself. However, you have set me going, and must just take the consequences, for I warn you I will stop at no point so long as clear reasoning will take me further.” ~ Thomas Huxley
  42. “Making money, it seems, is all about the velocity of moving it around, so that it can exist in Hong Kong one moment and Wall Street a split second later.” ~ Richard Dooling
  43. “So you want to know all about me. Who I am. What chance meeting of brush and canvas painted the face you see? What made me despise the girl in the mirror enough to transform her,turn her to into a stranger, only not. So you want to hear the whole story. Why I swerved off the high road, hard left to nowhere, recklessly indifferent to those coughing my dust, picked up speed no limits,no top end, just a high velocity rush to madness.” ~ Ellen Hopkins
  44. “Everyone’s got their own velocity, and there’s no real time frame with comedy.” ~ Sarah Silverman

  45. “The community of developers whose work you see on the Web, who probably don’t know what ADO or UML or JPA even stand for, deploy better systems at less cost in less time at lower risk than we see in the Enterprise. This is true even when you factor in the greater flexibility and velocity of startups.” ~ Tim Bray
  46. “”The suspect had experienced a ballistic interlude earlier in the evening,” Miss Pao said, “regrettably not filmed, and relieved himself of excess velocity by means of an ablative technique.”” ~ Neal Stephenson
  47. “Those who would legislate against the teaching of evolution should also legislate against gravity, electricity and the unreasonable velocity of light, and also, should introduce a clause to prevent the use of the telescope, the microscope and the spectroscope or any other instrument of precision which may in the future be invented, constructed or used for the discovery of truth.” ~ Luther Burbank
  48. “The velocity and volume on the Web are so great that nothing is forgotten and nothing is remembered.” ~ Leon Wieseltier

  49. “If life is not always poetical, it is at least metrical. Periodicity rules over the mental experience of man, according to the path of the orbit of his thoughts. Distances are not gauged, ellipses not measured, velocities not ascertained, times not known. Nevertheless, the recurrence is sure. What the mind suffered last week, or last year, it does not suffer now; but it will suffer again next week or next year.” ~ Alice Meynell
  50. “The Theory of Relativity confers an absolute meaning on a magnitude which in classical theory has only a relative significance: the velocity of light. The velocity of light is to the Theory of Relativity as the elementary quantum of action is to the Quantum Theory: it is its absolute core.” ~ Max Planck
  51. “I think herd mentality is a good thing overall. Because if every sheep had to figure out the velocity of the wolf and their personal risk, that would take forever.” ~ Neal Barnard
  52. “How are you managing the velocity of change?” ~ Jim Blasingame

  53. “Maybe I’ll go where I can see stars, he said to himself as the car gained velocity and altitude; it headed away from San Francisco, toward the uninhabited desolation to the north. To the place where no living thing would go. Not unless it felt that the end had come.” ~ Philip K. Dick
  54. “What appears to be the established order of present-day civilization is actually only the inert but spectacular momentum of a high velocity vehicle whose engine has already stopped functioning.” ~ Jose Arguelles
  55. “Maybe in the minor leagues. With my velocity, they would pick it up and say, ‘Hey, you dropped something.'” ~ Jay Feaster
  56. “From literature to ecology, from the escape velocity of galaxies to the greenhouse effect, from garbage disposal methods to traffic jams, everything is discussed in our world. But the democratic system, as if it were a given fact, untouchable by nature until the end of time, we don’t discuss that.” ~ Jose Saramago

  57. “A Dalit needs Jupiter’s escape velocity to achieve success.” ~ Rahul Gandhi
  58. “From a certain temperature on, the molecules ‘condense’ without attractive forces; that is, they accumulate at zero velocity. The theory is pretty, but is there some truth in it.” ~ Albert Einstein
  59. “As is well known the principle of virtual velocities transforms all statics into a mathematical assignment, and by D’Alembert’s principle for dynamics, the latter is again reduced to statics. Although it is is very much in order that in gradual training of science and in the instruction of the individual the easier precedes the more difficult, the simple precedes the more complicated, the special precedes the general, yet the min, once it has arrived at the higher standpoint, demands the reverse process whereby all statics appears only as a very special case of mechanics.” ~ Carl Friedrich Gauss
  60. “Standing at my door, I heard the discharge of a gun, and in four or five seconds of time, after the discharge, the small shot came rattling about me, one or two of which struck the house; which plainly demonstrates that the velocity of sound is greater than that of a cannon bullet.” ~ Benjamin Banneker

  61. “Big whorls have little whorls
    Which feed on their velocity
    And little whorls have lesser whorls,
    And so on to viscosity.” ~ Lewis Fry Richardson
  62. “All is finite in the present, and even that finite is infinite in it velocity of flight towards death. But in God there is nothing finite…Upon a night of earthquake, he builds a thousand years of pleasant habitations for man. Upon the sorrow of an infant he raises oftentimes from human intellects glorious vintages that could not else have been.” ~ Thomas de Quincey
  63. “Viscosity and velocity are opposites, yet they can look the same. Viscosity causes the stillness of disinclination, velocity causes the stillness of fascination. An observer can’t tell if a person is silent and still because inner life has stalled or because inner life is transfixingly busy.” ~ Susanna Kaysen

  64. “R is a velocity of measure, defined as a reasonable speed of travel that is consistent with health, mental well-being, and not being more than, say, five minutes late. It is therefore clearly as almost infinite variable figure according to circumstances, since the first two factors vary not only with speed as an absolute, but also with awareness of the third factor. Unless handled with tranquility, this equation can result in considerable stress, ulcers, and even death.” ~ Douglas Adams
  65. “I started thinking about how life is a lot like getting pushed out of a plane. You didn’t ask to be here, none of us did. But we’re all careening through space towards an eventual end that no one’s gonna be able to put off. That’s the only thing that’s definite, this impact. So I started to think about how a lot of us fall at an incredible velocity, and it’s over in the blink of an eye.” ~ Frank Iero
