Phylosophy I believe in

  • Carl Sagan's Pale Blue Dot (Video on YouTube): In my opinion one of the most beautiful videos ever. Humbling.
    • As from 6th-Dec-2016 the above link has been silenced to avoid copyright breach. Here is an subtitled alternative. The images and music aren't those originally shown in the Cosmos series, but the text and Sagan's voice remains.

Quotations I like

  • "If you think education is expensive, try ignorance." Derek Bok (Harvard President, 1971-1991)
  • "No one shall expel us from the paradise which Cantor has created for us." David Hilbert (1862-1943)
  • "while(alive){learn;}" Xu Cui (Currently at Stanford University, ????-????)
