Reviews of : The Quotable Feynman by Richard P. Feynman PDF Book
Inside this Book – There seems to be an insatiable public appetite to feel a closeness with the giant mind and personality of Richard Feynman. This curiosity transcends generations, crosses disciplines and cultures. Over a quarter of a century after his passing, he remains alive in the public consciousness, his books are still in print, his legendary lectures are online, scientists are continuing to grapple and tangle with many of the theories he put forth decades ago. So where does the longevity of his aura come from? I can only offer a sliver of a snapshot. Over three decades ago, I used to see Richard backstage at concerts. He came not because he liked cello playing particularly, but because his beloved young daughter, Michelle, played, and of course, what doting father wouldn’t want to please his daughter? Sometimes we would pass time bantering about what truth is in science and art, and he would always say, “In science you have to prove it.” And then he would regale us with stories of his adventures playing the bongo drums. Once we went to the house and he showed us his beautiful drawings of the human figure. He talked about how his desire to go to Tuva came about from playing a geography game. He was always energetic, attentive, and present.
Inside this book –The Quotable Feynman PDF Book by Richard P. Feynman – I recently came across a few of my notebooks from high school and college and found scribbles from my time in the classroom. By turns funny, uplifting, heartbreaking, and occasionally annoying, those excerpts from my life of years ago remind me of a particular moment or a class much more quickly than do my actual class notes — there is something very powerful about a concise state- ment. And so I have always loved quotes. One of my favorite quotes from my father came in a birthday card he gave me when I turned 18: “Go forth!” he wrote. When I read those words, I remember my reaction — pride and excitement, mixed with some apprehension. I also recall that he usually didn’t bother himself with the trivialities of birthday cards; he left that to my mother, which made this particular quote that much more poignant. My father left me his words. From them I remember both his outlook on life and his voice, positive and clear. He was someone who didn’t worry about small problems. His advice here — leave it; let it go — is inspiring: And we all do stupid things, and we know some people do more than others, but there is no use in trying to check who does the most.
