Two trenchant comments on different issues from two Nobel laureates:
Physicists tend to be supercritical of strong conclusions but the data on global warming now indicates the conclusions are not nearly strong enough.
-- Leon Lederman (physics) regarding a report calling for action on climate change in the US.
We saw a forlorn, deserted, desolate and eerie place. The entire situation is abominable. We believe that ordinary Israeli citizens would not support this blockade, this siege, if they knew what it really meant to ordinary people like themselves.
-- Desmond Tutu (peace) speaking about Gaza.
