### Life Attitude

The first principle is that you must not fool yourself– and you are the easiest person to fool.  So you have to be very careful about that

An attitude that anything can happen, in spite of what you are pretty sure should happen.

I eventually got to be the head of the team.

Notice Connections

I went of all places unitl i got it

You should find out how the rest world is

it was beautifully engineered

cyclotron

i could do that, but i won’t, which is another way of saying you can’t

You have no responsilibity to live up to what other people think you ought to accomplish, i have no responsibity to be like they expected me to be. it is their mistake, not mine failing

I thought to myself: you know where you learn all that stuff?
— From Mary Lou

Good, Give me one example, I can’t understand anything in general unless i’m carrying along in my mind a specific example and watching it go

Concentrate on your breath, on how it goes in and out of your nose as you breathe

### Maths: 🔄

French Curve: lowest point in each curve, no matter how you turn it, the tagent is horizontal

Eye’s were beaming with happiness

Immeasurable theory

Cut an orange in finite many pieces and put it together
it is as big as the sum?
but you said an orange!
we assumed continuity

Hausdorff homorphic

i got up to Homotopy groups.

At lease I’m living, at least i m doing something, at least i’m making some contributions.

Is there a better way to present the material?

are there any new problems associated with them?

Familiar with Log tables

1729.03 cube roots is about 12.002

Solve problem by trial and error

Dirac Equation

Dresden Codes (584 ≈ 583.923)

He thinks i’m following the steps mathematically, but that’s not what i’m doing. I have the specific, physical example of what he’s trying to analyze.

In a Hausdorff space, any point and a disjoint compact subspace can be separated by open sets

Alex 特别生气，说it is ok to vote me out, but with a bunch of mathematicians, every draw is an independent event! you got to give me a better reason!

### Funny Random Stories 😂

you mix white and red you’ll get yellow
Feynman: you mean pink?

people’s hands smell very different

Will you sleep with me tonight?

You can buy whatever, Cause you are paying for it!

After reading the salary, I’ve decided i must refuse…..
With the salary I can get a wonderful mistress….
I wouldn’t be able to do physics well, and it will be a big mess.

Frog talks written as “brek, kek, kek”. I thought, “No frog eve made a sound like that; that’s crazy way to describe it”. so i tried it, and after practicing it awhile, i realized that it’s very accurately what a frog says.

### Painting 🔕

I got kicked out of succeeding at something I wasn’t supposed to be able to do

Everything was entirely memorized yet, nothing had been translated to meaniful words

He never said it was wrong, he never put me down.

In math/physics methods, that we never stop telling students how to do things, the drawing teacher is afraid to tell you anything.

physics teacher has the problem of always teaching techniques, rather than the spirit, of how to go about solving physical problems

Sistine Chapel, Raphael Room (2 paints are not good)

Au Fait

I ended up draw face, because i don’t know how to bring it up the subject of posing nude

Magnetic field lines(it was similar to a girl’s flowing hair), I wanted to draw something beautiful that no artist would think to draw.

Art gives somebody, individually, pleasure. In science, it’s sort of general and large: You don’t know the individuals who have appreciated it directly

I practiced drawing all the time, and became very intresting.

If i was  at a meeting that wasn’t going anywhere,  I would draw other people

I had a little pad of paper I kept with me and I practiced drawing whereever I want. So, as Jerry taught me, I worked very hard.

### Music 🎶

Drum( Africa vs Ithaca)

Nigeria Ukonu (bongos)

at one of the night clubs, he invited me to come up on stage with them and play a little. So i got up there with the other guys and played along with them on the drum for a little while

after practicing again and again I finally got it straight and played it in the show. I was pretty successful.

That had to be the same: that was hard.

#### Feynman Recommendation

My favorite word: Osmosis, 中文是渗透 ，大概是 润物细无声吧 🙂
