An ocean traveler has even more vividly the impression that the ocean is made of waves than that it is made of water.
I ask you to look both ways. For the road to a knowledge of the stars leads through the atom; and important knowledge of the atom has been reached through the stars.

Comments on: "Arthur Eddington Quotes: I ask you to look both ways. For the road to a knowledge..."
I think it is something of the same sort of security we should seek in our relationship with God. The most flawless proof of the existence of God is no substitute for it; and if we have that relationship, the most convincing disproof is turned aimlessly aside. If I may say it with reverence, the soul and God laugh together over so odd a conclusion.
Let us draw an arrow arbitrarily. If as we follow the arrow we find more and more of the random element in the world, then the arrow is pointing towards the future; if the random element decreases the arrow points towards the past… I shall use the phrase ‘time’s arrow’ to express this one-way property of time which has no analogue in space.

Sir Arthur Stanley Eddington was born in Kendal, Westmorland, England. He was a British astronomer, physicist, and mathematician of the early 20th century who did his greatest work in astrophysics. He was also a philosopher of science and a popularizer of science. The Eddington limit, the natural limit to the luminosity of stars, or the radiation generated by accretion onto a compact object, is named in his honour. He is famous for his work regarding the theory of relativity. He also conducted an expedition to observe the Solar eclipse of 29 May 1919 that provided one of the earliest confirmations of relativity, and he became known for his popular expositions and interpretations of the theory. He graduated with a B.Sc. in physics with First Class Honours in 1902. After receiving his M.A. in 1905, he began research on thermionic emission in the Cavendish Laboratory.
