A Fine Man

Feynman was a Nobel Prize winning physicist, among many other things. Among my favorite quotes of his, regarding religious belief and skepticism, is "I can live with doubt, and uncertainty, and not knowing. I think it's much more interesting to live not knowing than to have answers which might be wrong."

Feynman is one of a handful of personal heroes. The book Surely You're Joking Mr. Feynman was one of the highlights of high school.

A comic book about his life came out recently. I think his daughter was involved with it and thus it contains somewhat different anecdotes, and a different perspective, than Surely You're Joking Mr. Feynman. It's also better organized. My mother got it for my son and it is with some shame that I admit I didn't pass it on to him right away.
