Not only is the universe stranger than we imagine, it is stranger than we can imagine.

Attributed to Feynman:

If you think you understand quantum mechanics, then you don't understand quantum mechanics.

"We need a super-mathematics in which the operations are as unknown as the quantities they operate on, and a super-mathematician who does not know what he is doing when he performs these operations. Such a super-mathematics is the Theory of Groups."

"There is a theory which states that if ever anybody discovers exactly what the Universe is for and why it is here, it will instantly disappear and be replaced by something even more bizarre and inexplicable. There is another theory which states that this has already happened."

Whatever you end up using make sure you can absolutely verify the person it's attributed to actually said or wrote it. Because, as Abraham Lincoln said:

"You can't always trust what you read on the internet."

"Nature is the simplest conceivable mathematical idea"

The second is what I regard as the postulate that makes theoretical physics possible. It is from a cosmologist called Heller:

"If some unverifiable assumptions are true, then the conclusions derived from them are also true" Heller, Acta Cosmologica, 14, 57-72 (1986).
