The scientist does not study nature because it is useful; he studies it because he delights in it, and he delights in it because it is beautiful. If nature were not beautiful, it would not be worth knowing, and if nature were not worth knowing, life would not be worth living.
All Life is Problem Solving
In thousands of agonies—I exist. I’m tormented on the rack—but I exist! Though I sit alone in a pillar—I exist! I see the sun, and if I don’t see the sun, I know it’s there. And there’s a whole life in that, in knowing that the sun is there.
Science is the belief in the ignorance of experts.
However difficult life may seem, there is always something you can do and succeed at. It matters that you don’t just give up.
