Richard Feynman – Ordinary fools are alright

Share this quote:
Richard FeynmanOrdinary fools are alright; you can talk to them and try to help them out. But pompous fools – guys who are fools and covering it all over and impressing people as to how wonderful they are with all this hocus pocus – THAT, I CANNOT STAND! An ordinary fool isn’t a faker; an honest fool is alright. But a dishonest fool is terrible!

Richard Feynman   (1918-1988)
