Statement made after the attack on Pearl Harbor by Yamamoto as portrayed in the film Tora! Tora! Tora!, this is one of the most quoted remarks attributed to him. Though it is thought that it summarizes his sentiments well, a definite source for this quote has never been provided. William Safire wrote that there is no printed evidence to support this quote.

„Assuming that the particle has an internal vibration which allows to assimilate it to a small clock, I supposed that the clock was traveling with the wave in such a way that its internal vibration remained constantly in phase with the wave's : this is the phase matching postulate.“

—  Louis de Broglie French physicist 1892 - 1987

Admettant que la particule possède une vibration interne qui permet de l'assimiler à une petite horloge, je supposais que cette horloge se déplaçait dans son onde de façon que sa vibration interne reste constamment en phase avec celle de l'onde : c'est le postulat de l'accord des phases.
