""Higgs boson walks into a church, and the priest says, 'I'm sorry we don’t allow Higgs bosons to come to churches.' And [the Higgs] says, 'But without me, you can’t have mass.'""

"Einstein wrote a research paper in the 1920s. Maybe a few dozen people in the world could understand it; it was a curiosity, and it kind of languished. Well, later on people noticed: Out of its ideas came the laser. When Einstein wrote that paper, he wasn’t thinking, “This will produce barcodes.” He wasn’t thinking laser surgery. He wasn’t thinking laser weapons or laser pointers. None of this was in his head, but he created the foundations for it. So I don’t believe you if you’re trying to tell me that learning how something works and why it works won’t enhance your understanding of what it is you’re experiencing!"
