Any intelligent fool can make things bigger and more complex... It takes a touch of genius --- and a lot of courage to move in the opposite direction.

I never think of the future. It comes soon enough.

I have deep faith that the principle of the universe will be beautiful and simple.

Life is like riding a bicycle. To keep your balance you must keep moving
