„As you get older, you realize you need balance. If it’s not fun, what’s the point?“

—  Ben Stiller actor, Comedian, director, writer 1965
Context: When I didn’t have a family, I was much more of a workaholic … I still like to work, but I also want to be home with them. As you get older, you realize you need balance. If it’s not fun, what’s the point? As quoted in "Born Funny" by Margot Dougherty in Reader's Digest (September 2007)

„On the contrary, it's because somebody knows something about it that we can't talk about physics. It's the things that nobody knows anything about that we can discuss. We can talk about the weather; we can talk about social problems; we can talk about psychology; we can talk about international finance — gold transfers we can't talk about, because those are understood — so it's the subject that nobody knows anything about that we can all talk about!“

—  Richard Feynman American theoretical physicist 1918 - 1988
Rejoinder when told that he couldn't talk about physics, because "nobody [at this table] knows anything about it." Part 5: "The World of One Physicist", "Alfred Nobel's Other Mistake", p. 310. (Quoted in Handbook of Economic Growth (2005) by Philippe Aghion and Steven N. Durlauf.)
