Snow_Clive Quotes (1 quote)
No other part of science has contributed as much to the liberation of the human spirit as the Second Law of Thermodynamics. Yet, at the same time, few other parts of science are held to be so recondite. Mention of the Second Law raises visions of lumbering steam engines, intricate mathematics, and infinitely incomprehensible entropy. Not many would pass C.P. Snows test of general literacy, in which not knowing the Second Law is equivalent to not having read a work of Shakespeare.
