From Feynman’s Rainbow

My scientist friend and I spoke the other day, and knowing how I revere Richard Feynman, he told me about Leonard Mlodinow’s new book, Feynman’s Rainbow. I immediately bought the book, and randomly browsed through it this morning.

“You’re wasting your time,” he said. “You don’t learn how to discover things by reading books on it. And psychology is a bunch of bullshit.” … “What I would learn from your story is that if an ape can make a discovery, so can you.”

I may not discover things by reading books only, but the combination of living and reading sure enhances my discovery! So very happy I met Feynman through books. So very happy I met my scientist friend.
