A quote

"Well, one day I was at the Institute of Advanced Study, and I went to Gödel's office, and there was Gödel," the professor recalled. "I said, 'Professor Gödel, what connection do you see between your incompleteness theorem and Heisenberg's uncertainty principle?' And Gödel got angry and threw me out of his office."
