  2. The environment is everything that isn’t me.”
  3. The world is a dangerous place to live—not because of people who are evil, but because of the people who don’t do anything about it.”
  4. “If my theory of relativity is proven successful, Germany will claim me as a German, and France will declare that I am a citizen of the world.  Should my theory prove untrue, France will say that I am a German, and Germany will declare that I am a Jew.”
