His comment at a gathering at MIT:
“ I was at a speaking engagement for MIT ... and I said ... the Professor has all sorts of degrees, including one from this very institution [MIT]! And that's why I can make a radio out of a coconut, and not fix a hole in a boat! ”
Build a man a fire, and he'll be warm for a day. Set a man on fire, and he'll be warm for the rest of his life.
