“Dubito, ergo cogito, ergo sum.”
René Descartes

“Like a Shakespearean sonnet that captures the very essence of love, or a painting that brings out the beauty of the human form that is far more than just skin deep, Euler’s equation reaches down into the very depths of existence.”
Keith Devlin, as quoted in Dr. Eulers Fabulous Formula, 2006

“Disorder increases with time because we measure time in the direction in which disorder increases. You can’t have a safer bet than that!”
Steven Hawking, A Brief History of Time, 1988

“Your work is going to fill a large part of your life, and the only way to be truly satisfied is to do what you believe is great work. And the only way to do great work is to love what you do. If you haven’t found it yet, keep looking. Don’t settle. As with all matters of the heart, you’ll know when you find it.”
Steve Jobs, Stanford University Commencement Address, 2005

“Two things fill the mind with ever new and increasing admiration and awe, the more often and steadily we reflect upon them: the starry heavens above me and the moral law within me. I do not seek or conjecture either of them as if they were veiled obscurities or extravagances beyond the horizon of my vision; I see them before me and connect them immediately with the consciousness of my existence.”
Immanuel Kant, Critique of Practical Reason, 1788

“Intensity. Give 100%. 110% is impossible. Only idiots recommend that.”
