Bill Bryson
“Physics is really nothing more than a search for ultimate simplicity, but so far all we have is a kind of elegant messiness.”
Bill Bryson, A Short History of Nearly Everything

Bill Bryson
“You may not feel outstandingly robust, but if you are an average-sized adult you will contain within your modest frame no less than 7 X 10^18 joules of potential energy—enough to explode with the force of thirty very large hydrogen bombs, assuming you knew how to liberate it and really wished to make a point.”
Bill Bryson, A Short History of Nearly Everything
