More exactly, he didn't buy into quantum mechanics as a complete

More exactly, he didn't buy into quantum mechanics as a complete explanation :

"[...] Quantum mechanics is certainly imposing. But an inner voice tells me that it is not yet the real thing. The theory says a lot, but does not really bring us any closer to the secret of the "old one". I, at any rate, am convinced that He does not throw dice."
