Transcript:
ALBERT SZENT-GYORGYI: I am not religious, but I am a pious man.
HOST: Oh, well, that's interesting! What's the difference?
ASG: A religious man has a definite religion. He says "God is there" or "God is there," "God is there." "Your god is not my god, and that's all." But the pious man, he just looks out with awe, and says, "where is God?" And "well, I don't understand it and I would like to know what this creation really means." That is a pious man, who is really touched by the greatness of nature and of the creation.
