I thought I'd take a break from all the heavy thinking I'm doing while writing Time Sniffers and share some hilarious quotes. Thinking about matter, dark energy, and time travel has got my brain spinning. You'd be surprised at some of the strangely funny things famous people have said. Let's start with Isaac Asimov:

People who think they know everything are a great annoyance to those of us who do.

Life is pleasant. Death is peaceful. It's the transition that's troublesome.

If my doctor told me I had only six minutes to live, I wouldn't brood. I'd type a little faster.

And here's some from Einstein:

A question that sometimes drives me hazy: am I or are the others crazy?

Any man who can drive safely while kissing a pretty girl is simply not giving the kiss the attention it deserves.

Do not worry about your difficulties in Mathematics. I can assure you mine are still greater. [sorry, but I don't buy that one!]

Great spirits have always encountered violent opposition from mediocre minds.

And from physicist Richard Feynman:

If I could explain it to the average person, I wouldn't have been worth the Nobel Prize.

The first principle is that you must not fool yourself and you are the easiest person to fool.

I believe that a scientist looking at nonscientific problems is just as dumb as the next guy.

You can see, now, why I'm getting little writing done--having so much fun researching physics and reading all these very deep theoretical quotes from the great minds of the world. :)
