         Subject: Help in locating a quotation

I recall a comment attributed to an early 20th Century physicist along the
lines of

"Science in the 20th Century is about the very large, the very small, the
very fast and the very slow."

I have done a rather exhaustive search of on-line quotation sites and a
large number of permutations of the quote without finding a source.

Can HUMANISTS point to a source for this quote?

This query was originally posted as 15.527 on Mon, 25 Feb 2002 07:36:58 but
received no replies. I hope for better luck this time.

Many thanks in advance.
