Richard P. Feynman Quotes

  1. Nobody ever figures out what life is all about, and it doesn’t matter. Explore the world. Nearly everything is really interesting if you go into it deeply enough.
  2. The first principle is that you must not fool yourself and you are the easiest person to fool.
  3. Reality must take precedence over public relations, for nature cannot be fooled.
  4. Poets say science takes away from the beauty of the stars – mere globs of gas atoms. I, too, can see the stars on a desert night, and feel them. But do I see less or more?
  5. Physics isn’t the most important thing. Love is.

Richard P. Feynman was an American theoretical physicist and author. He became known through writing his semi-autobiographical books, Surely You’re Joking, Mr. Feynman! and What Do You Care What Other People Think?
