Quotes that stir(-fry) me

  1. It is said that there is no such thing as a free lunch. But the universe is the ultimate free lunch. (Alan Guth)

  2. Imagination will often take us to the worlds that never were. But without it we go nowhere. (Carl Sagan)

  3. All (wo)men dream. Those who dream by night in the dusty recesses of their minds wake in the day to find that it was vanity: but the dreamers of the day are dangerous (wo)men, for they may act their dreams with open eyes, to make it possible. (I modified a quote from T. E. lawrence )

  4. Where the mind is without fear and the head is held high, where knowledge is free. Where the world has not been broken up into fragments by narrow domestic walls. Where words come out from the depth of truth, where tireless striving stretches its arms toward perfection.
    (Good old Tagore. Probably the most important to me among all four. Used to be written in the first page of our school diary every year at South Point and unknowingly it has left an impact after reading it again and again for years.)
