The pleasure of finding things out


When I started reading book “Surely you’re Joking Mr Feynman” last year, I had limited understanding of Feynman and his work. As I was reading through pages, I was visualizing the kind of life Feynman lived. Ralph Leighton has put together an amazing biography for today’s generation to understand and learn from Feynman’s life. Recently I read another book about the great man titled “The pleasure of finding things out” which is a collection of some of the speeches he has delivered in his lifetime. Few chapters may be too technical for certain audience but it is a great collection to understand Feynman’s thought process and his worldview. Here are some of my favorite quotes from the book.

I don’t feel frightened by not knowing things, by being lost in a mysterious universe without having any purpose, which is the way it really is so far as I can tell. It doesn’t frighten me.

Doesn’t it feel so true and natural ? I believe all of us have been born with above understanding but somehow as we grew up, so called ‘society’ and our environment have shaped our thinking the other way. Not knowing things should not frighten us. We should take this as an opportunity to explore, understand and expand our worldview.

I think we should teach them [the people] wonders and that the purpose of knowledge is to appreciate wonders even more.

One of the misconception that people might have goes like this “once you become expert in something, you can relax, sit and enjoy the rest of the life”. But reality is “once you know something really deep, you realize that there are many more things that you don’t know”.

Inner curiosity should drive everything that we do. There is so much pleasure in finding things out.

Achievement and Success are not Same

Posted on

Most of the people in this world are using achievement and Success interchangeably. But it is not the case. There is a difference between Achievement and Success. There are people who have number of achievement but they could not succeed. The reason is they are more self   centered.Although everyone in today’s world are self centered only the “radius” that matters. People who got something in life by stealing others Idea are called achievers but they did not get success. There are people who don’t have any achievements but they get success because of their thought process. So according to me we all should keep one thing in mind “Treat others the way you want others to treat you.” If we keep it in our mind we surely get Success along with Achievements. And also you can enjoy your achievements.

Respect and Enjoy every Moment


Life is B(irth) to D(eath). And C(hoice) comes in between. Many times you feel that “If I have done it before or I wish I have enjoyed that moment”. That happens with everyone but the main reason for a happy person ,he is enjoying “The Present”. Recently I read a book titled “The Present by Spencer Johnson”. One can see the “Thought Process” and  “Life Style” of today’s youth.  The quote that I liked the most  by old man is ‘Only you have the power to find The Present for yourself ‘ .
