Richard Feynman’s Little-Known Sketches & Drawings
It is no coincidence that our finest scientific minds are often the broadest in their interest.
Be the Feynman you wish to see in the world. Wait, that’s not how that goes …
What I mean, of course, is to broaden your horizons, to find the point where figures stop being numbers and symbols and instead become bodies and shapes, where physics morphs into how colors mix on a canvas or how sound waves become music, and where chemistry becomes the effect of kneading on flour, or smoke on meat, or how heat transforms sugar.
Explore beyond science, regularly. What you bring back will enrich your scientific experience, and science will enrich the rest of your mind’s endeavors.
Feynman taught the world a lot about the beauty of physics. But one of his greatest lessons is that the mind is like a diamond. It can only become its most valuable and beautiful form when it is cut with a kaleidoscope of different facets.
He was also very good at drawing.
