“In Hungary acting is a profession. In America it is a decision.” —Bela Lugosi

The Martians. John von Neumann, Edward Teller, Eugene Paul Wigner, Leó Szilárd, Theodore von Kármán, John George Kemeny.

The Pleasure of Finding Things Out by Richard Feynman.

I’m convinced there is a Feynman quote about an early meeting of scientists working on the Manhattan Project where they realized they were all Hungarian speakers and switched to their native language. However, I can’t find it. If you can find it, please post a comment.
