Quotes | By
The following are quotes by Gyorgyi:
- “Life is nothing but an electron looking for a place to rest.”
- “In my search for the secret of life, I ended up with atoms and electrons, which have no life at all. Somewhere along the lines, life has ‘run out through my fingers’. So, in my old age [age 79], I am now retracing my steps [back to the cell].”
- — Albert Gyorgyi (1972), “What is Life” 
- “A ‘discovery’ must be, by definition, at variance with existing knowledge.”
