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

"Quantum theory also tells us that the world is not simply objective; somehow it’s something more subtle than that" John Polkinghorne

"If quantum mechanics hasn’t profoundly shocked you, you haven’t understood it yet" Niels Bohr

Indeed, sometimes even an entire life is not enough to understand quantum physics. But to start studying and thinking about it, a school background is sufficient.
