  1. also has “It is just as foolish to complain that people are selfish and treacherous as it is to complain that the magnetic field does not increase unless the electric field has a curl. Both are laws of nature.” I wonder if anyone has ever tried to compare and contrast these two alleged quotes?

    (And maybe what we should make of someone who constructs an image that might easily be misconstrued as evidence that he did actually say this. Or if such evidence exists, why hasn’t someone corrected wikiquotes?)

    My own view is …. better be careful what I say, or I may be taken out of context … 😉

    P.S. Keep digging!
