Obit quote of the day

From the obituary for Benoit Mandelbrot:

“If you take the beginning and the end, I have had a conventional career,” he said, referring to his prestigious appointments in Paris and at Yale. “But it was not a straight line between the beginning and the end. It was a very crooked line.”

I am appreciating that right now.
You are here.  Somewhere.
