“If I could remember the names of all these particles, I’d be a botanist.”
“Before I came here, I was confused about this subject. Having listened to your lecture, I am still confused — but on a higher level.”
“There are two possible outcomes: if the result confirms the hypothesis, then you’ve made a measurement. If the result is contrary to the hypothesis, then you’ve made a discovery.”   
Enrico Fermi, achiever in both theoretical and experimental physics, 1938 Nobel Prize in Physics winner, famous for his discovery of beta decay, and the controlled nuclear chain reaction, had a great sense of humour.
