2. "A fawn eats the equivalent of its body weight every twenty-four hours. How do you know that? Read it in a book. I read sixty books last year. Geez, he said. Why? ’Cause there wasn’t time to read more, she said with a superior sniff. Hard"

3. "If hydrogen, the element of lowest atomic weight, should be the building block (aside from other particles of negligible weight) then something must be lost in the process of fusing hydrogen atoms to form elements of larger atomic weight. This loss of mass, which has been known to be equivalent to energy since Einstein’s work of 1905, is called the binding energy. The idea occurred that it might perhaps be utilized. This is now done in the fusion process that takes place when a hydrogen bomb explodes and the extra mass is converted to radiated energy."
- Morris Kline, Mathematics and the Physical World
