„Dimensionless constants in the laws of nature, which from the purely logical point of view can just as well have different values, should not exist.“

—  Albert Einstein German-born physicist and founder of the theory of relativity 1879 - 1955

German orgiginal: Dimensionslose Konstanten in den Naturgesetzen, die vom rein logischen Standpunkt aus ebensogut andere Werte haben können, dürfte es nicht geben.
