Modest, Passionate Genius

A fascinating exploration of the exceptional, curious, and modest mind and character of physicist Richard Feynman.

On the Nobel Prize: “I don’t like honors… I don’t see that it makes any point that someone in the Swedish Academy decides that this work is noble enough to receive a prize.

Those are the real things; the honors are unreal.” (00:30:09)
