"If quantum physics doesn't leave you with a sense of outrage you probably don't understand it"

And can anyone improve my wording? I may not have the quotation down exactly right.

"For those who are not shocked when they first come across quantum theory cannot possibly have understood it.": Niels Bohr.
There are several variants of the wording, presumably because its a translation?

"I think I can safely say that nobody understands quantum mechanics.": Richard Feynman.

The Feynman quote is "Those who think they understand quantum mechanics ... have not understood quantum mechanics".

Wasn't he Schrodinger's ball boy?

Both kicked and un-kicked at the same time?

It would appear that you can know the wording or you can know who said it - but not both.
