If I could explain it to the average person, I wouldn't have been worth the Nobel Prize.
Richard P. Feynman
Be it jewel or toy, not the prize gives the joy, but the striving to win the prize.
Edward G. Bulwer-Lytton
Collaboration is just, really, a group of people getting in a room with their eye on a very similar prize and wanting to come out with the same show.

Fatherhood is not a matter of station or wealth. It is a matter of desire, diligence and determination to see one's family exalted in the celestial kingdom. If that prize is lost, nothing else really matters.
Ezra Taft Benson
As for me, prizes are nothing. My prize is my work.

I wonder what the most intelligent thing ever said was that started with the word 'dude.' 'Dude, these are isotopes.' 'Dude, we removed your kidney. You're gonna be fine.' 'Dude, I am so stoked to win this Nobel Prize. I just wanna thank Kevin, and Turtle, and all my homies.'
At the age of 12 I won the school prize for Best English Essay. The prize was a copy of Somerset Maugham's 'Introduction To Modern English And American Literature.' To this day I keep it on the shelf between my collection of Forester's works and the little urn that contains my mother's ashes.

Most of us fall in love with someone's persona and spend the next three to five years discovering who that person really is.

James D. Watson

John F. Kennedy
Martin Luther King, Jr.
