  4. “There are two ways to live: you can live as if nothing is a miracle; you can live as if everything is a miracle”
  5. “Common sense is the collection of prejudices acquired by age eighteen”
  6. “Anyone who has never made a mistake has never tried anything new”
  7. “Learn from yesterday, live for today, hope for tomorrow”
  8. “I have no special talent. I am only passionately curious”
  9. “If you can’t explain it simply, you don’t understand it well enough”
  10. “Not everything that can be counted, counts; not everything that counts can be counted”
