The Other I

Why am I right all the time?

A Nobel prize winner whose name I don’t remember was asked in an interview what it felt like to be so much smarter than everybody else.

After a slight pause, he replied “That’s not usually how the problem presents itself.”

If only I had an equally valid excuse for when everybody else is wrong.  It would be so useful.



  1. That’s a good quote 🙂

    • Glad you like it. I rather think I’d like the guy who said it, too, don’t you? I will publish his name if I can find it again.
