Surely You’re Joking, Mr Feynman! Quotes

I don’t know what’s the matter with people: they don’t learn by understanding; they learn by some other way—by rote, or something. Their knowledge is so fragile!

People often think I’m a faker, but I’m usually honest, in a certain way—in such a way that often nobody believes me!

Learn what the rest of the world is like. The variety is worthwhile.

I always do that, get into something and see how far I can go.

The End of the World is Just the Beginning Quotes

During the past seven decades, as a percent of the population, fewer people have died in fewer wars and fewer occupations and fewer famines and fewer disease outbreaks than since the dawn of recorded history. Historically speaking, we live in an embarrassment of riches and peace.

We have been living in a perfect moment. And it is passing. The world of the past few decades has been the best it will ever be in our lifetime. Instead of cheap and better and faster, we’re rapidly transitioning into a world that’s pricier and worse and slower. Because the world—our world—is breaking apart.

The 2020s will see a collapse of consumption and production and investment and trade almost everywhere. Globalization will shatter into pieces. Some regional. Some national. Some smaller. It will be costly. It will make life slower. And above all, worse. No economic system yet imagined can function in the sort of future we face. This devolution will be jarring, to say the least.

We hire only the best legal secretaries and we pay more than any other firm in town. You’re looking at the best, not necessarily the prettiest.

Alcohol and lawyers go together like blood and vampires. Most lawyers drink like fish, and the profession is plagued with alcoholism.

Some of the most unethical people I’ve met have been my own clients.

The Summer I Turned Pretty Quotes

For me, it was almost like winter didn't count. Summer was what mattered. My whole life was measured in summers. Like I don't really begin living until June.

Smirky mouths make you want to kiss them, to smooth them out and kiss the smirkiness away. Or maybe not away … but you want to control it somehow. Make it yours.

You're so pretty. So pretty. You're going to have an amazing, amazing summer. It'll be a summer you'll never forget.

It was the summer everything began. It was the summer I turned pretty. Because for the first time, I felt it. Pretty, I mean. Every summer up to this one, I believed it'd be different. Life would be different. And that summer, it finally was. I was.
