With mad-scientist hair and a voice that’s part Dalek, part preacher, Sumner Miller is strangely inspiring as he bounds around his lab. I was particularly taken with this short lecture:
Whatever work you undertake to do in your lifetime it is very important that first you have a passion for it – you know, get excited about it – and second, that you have fun with it – that’s important. Otherwise, you see, your work becomes nothing but an idle chore, and you hate the life you live.
Do you think I have fun with physics? Oh yes! You know that.
