Voice of the Day: William Bragg

In 1915, William Henry Bragg and William Lawrence Bragg (father and son) won the Nobel Prize in physics. The quote below was from a lecture one of them delivered at Cornell University in 1919. The lecture was credited only to William Bragg, with no middle name given, so I cannot tell you which one.

“Sometimes people ask if religion and science are not opposed to one another. They are: in the sense that the thumb and fingers of my hand are opposed to one another. It is an opposition by means of which anything can be grasped.” —William Bragg, The World of Sound, 1919.
