It is important to have crazy ideas because crazy ideas are sometimes good ideas. And a good researcher is student forever. Says Claude-Cohen Tannoudji who recieved the 1997 Nobel prize in physics for the development of method to cool and trap atoms with laser. These methods allow us for example to measure time much more accurately. He was born in Algeria where he witnessed the landing of American troops during WWII. Later he also served in the army himself. The key person in his career however were his parents and teachers and mainly a physicist whom he calls a poet.
