“Nobody ever figures out what life is all about, and it doesn't matter. Explore the world. Nearly everything is really interesting if you go into it deeply enough.”
Richard P. Feynman

“Study hard what interests you the most in the most undisciplined, irreverent and original manner possible.”
Richard Feynmann

“You have no responsibility to live up to what other people think you ought to accomplish. I have no responsibility to be like they expect me to be. It's their mistake, not my failing.”
Richard P. Feynman, Surely You're Joking, Mr. Feynman!: Adventures of a Curious Character
