People didn’t treat me as someone with science ambitions… They treated me as someone they thought was going to mug them, or who was a shoplifter. I’d be in a department store and security would follow me. Taxis wouldn’t stop for me. And I was just glad I had something to think about other than how society was treating me…

I wondered if there was a lost generation of people who succumbed because their fuel tanks were a little smaller than mine.
Maybe happiness is this: not feeling like you should be elsewhere, doing something else, being someone else.

Quote by Russian-born, American writer and scientist, Isaac Asimov.

When I look up at the night sky and I know that, yes - we are part of this universe, we are in this universe. But, perhaps more important than both of those facts, is that the universe is in us.

There’s a level of connectivity. That’s really what you want in life, you want to feel connected, you want to feel relevant, you want to feel like a participant in the goings on of activities and events around you. That’s precisely what we are… just by being alive.
