All of civility depends on being able to contain the rage of individuals.
Being successful at a very young age gave me the confidence and the capability to try out other things.
I believe I am a person with unusual talents. I think I'd be a liar or stupid if I were to deny that.
I wish I had a talent for dropping things as well as taking on new ones. It gets to be quite a clutter after a while.
I was reading five or six years ahead of my grade during public school. I was pretty bored. I made a contract with some of my teachers that if I didn't ask too many questions, I could work in the back of the room.
I have many shortcomings. I feel very lucky to have been able to have what I've had.
I get curious about new things. My real strength is going into a field that has not been investigated before, and finding new approaches to it.
I think we have to believe we are here for some purpose, and I know there are many cynics who will deny it, but they don't live as if they deny it.
I hope I've lived a life of science whose style will encourage younger people.
Life's a hobby.
I got my Nobel Prize for my lab work.

By the time I was 12 or 13, I was studying biochemistry textbooks.
I certainly saw science as a kind of calling, and one with as much legitimacy as a religious calling.
