"I am a very bad scientist. I will do anything to make a human being feel better, even if it’s unscientific. No scientist worthy of the name could say such a thing."

One of my all time faves.
Also, currently reading his bio, and he was a bit ornery and prone to believing that he was wronged in life, but I’d still give anything to sit down over some angel food cake with him and just hash out life and books and the going-ons of the universe.

"He couldn’t help thinking that all that money we were spending blowing up things and killing people so far away, making people the world over hate and fear us, would have been better spent on public education and libraries.

‘I won’t know myself until I find out whether life is serious or not,’ Trout said. ‘It’s dangerous, I know, and it can hurt a lot. That doesn’t necessarily mean it’s serious, too.’"
