Max Karl Ernst Ludwig Planck, commonly known as Max Planck, was a German theoretical physicist who postulated Planck’s quantum theory which fetched him the Nobel Prize in Physics. He revolutionized the study of Atomic and sub-atomic particles through his quantum theory. The Plank’s constant and the Planck's law of black body radiation are heavily applied in the study of quantum Physics. Along with the Nobel Prize, he bagged various honors namely the Lorentz Medal, Copley Medal, Max Planck Medal and Goethe Prize. Various other equations, formulae and laws such as Fokker–Planck equation, Kelvin–Planck statement of the Second Law of Thermodynamics and Nernst–Planck equation are named after this great physicist. He was one of the only few to derive corollaries from Einstein’s special theory of relativity. He was vocal about subjects such as success, happiness, truth, innovation, creativity, knowledge, wisdom and science. We have curated Planck’s notable quotes from his writings, research papers, observations, interviews etc. Let us go through some of the popular quotes from this Nobel laureate.
