Two important ingredients in the mathematical style of modern physics–the many roles of symmetry and the uses of unobservable quantities – are recounted and reviewed. Examples are taken from pre-relativistic and relativistic physics, particle and field mechanics, classical and quantum theory to illustrate these ideas. The words of many Masters illuminate our understanding of these concepts.
