Feynman


My hero :P I just love this guy! One more video. His quotes ..
-I learned very early the difference between knowing the name of something and knowing something.
-No problem is too small or too trivial if we can really do something about it.
-Physics isn't the most important thing. Love is.
-If I could explain it to the average person, I wouldn't have been worth the Nobel Prize.
-What do you care what other people think! (not exactly quote, but a pact between him and his wife)

Feynman did not say "What do you care what other people think?" His first wife, Arlene, said that to him, after she found out that he scraped off a romantic inscription on some personalized pencils she had sent him as a gift because he was ashamed that his coworkers at Los Alamos might see it. The inscription was "RICHARD DARLING, I LOVE YOU! PUTSY." You can read about this in the book "What do YOU care what other people think?" or in the newly published "Classic Feynman."
