2. "each elementary particle is paired with a superpartner particle. However, the LHC has not detected any of these predicted"

4. "There is not a particle of life which does not bear poetry within it"
- Quote by Gustave Flaubert
5. "Normally, the energy of the particle is still positive, but the gravitational field inside a black hole is so strong that even a real particle can have negative energy there. It is therefore possible, if a black hole is present, for the virtual particle with negative energy to fall into the black hole and become a real particle or antiparticle."
- Stephen Hawking, A Brief History of Time
8. "antimaterial particle: This antimaterial particle is within the material body. Because of the presence of this antimaterial particle, the material body is progressively changing from childhood to boyhood, from boyhood to youth to old age, after which the antimaterial particle leaves the old, unworkable body and takes up another material body."
- A.C. Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupāda, Easy Journey to Other Planets
9. "White is fearful to gaze upon for too long: it is the color of shrouds; it is all-color, the prism fused, undifferentiated, linked wave to wave and particle to particle."
- Chaim Potok, The Gift of Asher Lev
10. "Particle physicists are way ahead of cosmologists. Cosmology has produced one totally mysterious quantity: the energy of empty space, about which we understand virtually nothing. However, particle physics has not understood many more quantities for far longer!"
- Lawrence M. Krauss, A Universe from Nothing: Why There Is Something Rather than Nothing
