Isidor Isaac Rabi
I think physicists are the Peter Pans of the human race. They never grow up, and they keep their curiosity.
Rabi quotes
What more do you want, mermaids?
Rabi
My mother made me a scientist without ever intending to. Every other Jewish mother in Brooklyn would ask her child after school: So? Did you learn anything today? But not my mother. “Izzy,” she would say, “did you ask a good question today?” That difference — asking good questions — made me become a scientist.
