Who is isaac d’israeli?

Famous quotes containing the word isaac:

    My mother made me a scientist without ever intending to. Every other Jewish mother in Brooklyn would ask her child after school: So? Did you learn anything today? But not my mother. “Izzy,” she would say, “did you ask a good question today?” That difference—asking good questions—made me become a scientist.
    —Isidor Isaac Rabi (20th century)
