Those of us challenged by electron shells and tensor calculus appreciate the humility.

Having grown up amongst Nobel winners I can say with authority that the humble ones get invited to more parties. Look at Feynman - Physics was this thing he did for money while trying to figure out how to play better jazz and as a result the dude was a must call whenever you had so much as a case of beer. Then look at Teller - I mean, he was Edward Teller so you had to invite him but you hoped beyond hope that he didn't show up.

I'm honored to know you both. Go forth and do Great Things.
