A quote often attributed to Albert Einstein (rumor has it that he probably didn't say it - but it sounds good!) "As a young man, my fondest dream was to become a geographer. However, while working in the customs office I thought deeply about the matter and concluded it was far too difficult a subject. With some reluctance I then turned to physics as a substitute."
