        From: "Donald Weinshank" <weinshan-AT-cse.msu.edu>
        Subject: Source of quotation about Physics in the 20th century

Fellow humanists:

For many years, I have been on the track of a quotation from (as I recall) a
noted physicist in the early part of the 20th century. All attempts have
failed, and the reference librarians at my university admit defeat. (Against
the chance that I had previous posted this query, I searched our database
for my name and for the quote but found neither.)

Here is the quote as I remember it and what I believe are the references the
physicist had in mind.

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

the universe 
sub-atomic structure 
relativity 
evolution and geological  change
==================================
Can anybody give me a source for that quote?

Thanks!
