Journal Quote of the Day

Physics in Oxford will forever in my mind be associated with the motto, 'We delight in physics', emblazoned on the foot of departmental notepaper issued from the pen and the wit of Oxford University's famed nuclear physics Professor Denys Haigh Wilkinson, now retired. Never mind that this Shakespearean quote from Macbeth II.iii was a pragmatically truncated version of 'The labour we delight in physics pain'!

(E. Sheldon, "We delight in physics", in Contemporary Physics, Volume 47, Number 1, January-February 2006, p. 51).
