## Quotes[edit]

- The incompatibility between gravity and quantum coherence represented by black holes should be solved by a consistent quantum theory that contains gravity as superstring theory. Despite many encouraging results in that sense, I question here the general feeling of a naive resolution of the paradox. And indicate non trivial physical possibilities towards its solution that are suggested by string theory and may be further investigated in its context.

## Quotes about Amati[edit]

- ... in 1954 Daniele returned to Italy, his native country, and in the summer he attended a one-month course given by Fermi. He wrote me an interesting letter comparing the two as teachers. He put it roughly as follows: you ask a question to Feynman and, in many cases, he invents on the spot a clever and very original argument to answer the question: you understand the argument but at the same time you have the strong feeling that in no way you would have thought of it yourself. You ask a question to Fermi and his answer is so simple that you have the strong feeling that you should have thought of it yourself!
