@ science people who get bad scores on exams but love learning their subject. I have some words of wisdom from my theoretical mechanics professor to you:
“The universe not only has an inexhaustible supply of wonder and excitement, it also has an inexhaustible supply of problems… and those problems are one of our great sources of joy as scientists. I know college is hard and this class is hard. But I hope that all of you students finish your classes this semester, no matter your grades and keep learning and keep doing what you love.”
If you ever get the chance to see a production of Ragtime, I could not further urge you to go.

It must be one of the most well-written shows of all time, if not the number one smartest piece of theatre.
“It was the music of something beginning, an era exploding, a century spinning in riches and rags, and in rhythm and rhyme.
