If a poem hasn’t ripped apart your soul; you haven’t experienced poetry.
When I’m trying to think of a tactful way to say something and I realize it’s probably better to just keep my mouth shut.
Don’t say anything. Don’t say anything. Just smile and nod.
The day science begins to study non-physical phenomena, it will make more progress in one decade than in all the previous centuries of its existence.
Daring ideas are like chessmen moved forward. They may be beaten, but they may start a winning game
Forced learning about uninteresting subjects is probably the worst thing ever.
The scientist does not study nature because it is useful to do so. He studies it because he takes pleasure in it, and he takes pleasure in it because it is beautiful. If nature were not beautiful it would not be worth knowing, and life would not be worth living. I am not speaking, of course, of the beauty which strikes the senses, of the beauty of qualities and appearances. I am far from despising this, but it has nothing to do with science. What I mean is that more intimate beauty which comes from the harmonious order of its parts, and which a pure intelligence can grasp.
Read. Read. Read. Just don’t read one type of book. Read different books by various authors so that you develop different style.
