Quotes 33

A stern and level headed quote by the man of Physics on expectations and assumptions.

I have no responsibility to live up to what others expect of me. That’s their mistake, not my failing.


–Richard Feynman


Feynman always entertains

There is nothing to not love about him. Who says physicists are dull?

Quotes 32

I love life. But I don’t love life because it is pretty. Prettiness is only clothes-deep. I am a truer lover than that. I love it naked. There is beauty to me even in its ugliness. In fact, I deny the ugliness entirely, for its vices are often nobler than its virtues, and nearly always closer to a revelation… To me, the tragic alone has that significant beauty which is truth. It is the meaning of life — and the hope. The noblest is eternally the most tragic. The people who succeed and do not push on to a greater failure are the spiritual middle-classers. Their stopping at success is the proof of their compromising insignificance. How petty their dreams must have been!

— Eugene O’Neill

Beautiful perspective. Optimism at its zenith. Portrays the difference between looking at life skin deep vs without mirrors.

Quotes 31

We must believe in free will — we have no choice.

— Isaac Bashevis Singer

Ironically funny, but my thoughts exactly, especially in this time when every nook and crook wants to emphasize fate and destiny.

Quotes 30

There is a computer disease that anybody who works with computers knows about. It’s a very serious disease and it interferes completely with the work. The trouble with computers is that you ‘play’ with them!

— Richard Feynman

Ha, another one bites the dust.

Quotes 29

There is nothing more frightful than ignorance in action.

— Johann Wolfgang von Goethe

This is a timeless observation. More true than ever, now.

Quotes 28

Everybody wants to be somebody; nobody wants to grow.

— Johann Wolfgang von Goethe

Here’s my take.

Be inspired by gifted beacons;
Desert mimicry, or diminish to an ape.

Quotes – 25

“God does not die on the day when we cease to believe in a personal deity, but we die on the day when our lives cease to be illumined by the steady radiance, renewed daily, of a wonder, the source of which is beyond all reason.”

— Dag Hammarskjöld

Not one of the greatest quotes but an interesting way to put it.

Repetitive history

“If history repeats itself, and the unexpected always happens, how incapable must Man be of learning from experience.”

— George Bernard Shaw
