Elucidated Thoughts (Some by me, and quotes by famous people)

  • At some point you gotta decide who you gonna be. Can't let nobody make that decision for you - Moonlight (2016)
  • "Leave the world better than you found it" - Khaleesi, Game of thrones
  • You know you've reached the epitome of technological success when you can contain the knowledge of an entire 50000 sqft library in a coin size chip. - Me
  • Financial resources should be given to those who are more concerned with making the world a better place for all. That should be the premise of resource and financial allocation. - Me. 
  • "Do not go where the path may lead, go instead where there is no path, and leave a trail" by Ralph Waldo Emerson
  • Quis custodiet ipsos custodes? or Who will police the police? - Original Latin phrase, which I first read in Deception Point by Dan Brown
  • Does the man make the suit, or does the suit make the man? - First read from Iron Man 3 previews
  • One can always continue to learn from others
  • Do not look down upon those who look up to you
  • "Whatsoever your hand finds to do, do it gladly, because there is no work, love, knowledge or wisdom in the grave" - The Old Testament
  • "Whoever despises oneself still respects oneself as one who despises" - Nietzsche
  • The future belongs to the few of us who are willing to get their hands dirty - (please let me know if you know who said this.)
  • Taste lies in the buds of the beholder - Me
  • The treasure you seek shall not be the treasure you find - "O Brother, Where Art Thou (2000)" 
  • Biggest room in the world is the room for improvement
  • Sukhe paudho par baarish kitna bhi aa jaye, usme jaan nahi aati
  • No universal law remains in effect forever - Me
  • Laws of Science shall be broken - Me
  • "Things that move around the universe, move for a reason. They have a life." - Me
  • Question: "Can humans cause the Earth's orbit to change?" - Me
  • "Warriors aren't trained to retire" - 13 hours, The secret soldiers of Benghazi 
  • Of true knowledge at any time, a good part is merely convenient, necessary indeed to the worker, but not to an understanding of his subject: One can judge a building without knowing where to buy the bricks; one can understand a violin sonata without knowing how to score for the instrument. The work may in fact be better understood without a knowledge of the details of its manufacture, of attention to these tends to distract from meaning and effect. - Jacques Barzun 
  • In fact, I often also believe that the opposite is true. And that to enjoy the work truly, you need to know the background and the effort taken to really come up with it. Both these concepts work in their own ways.
  • Be Intentional: You should always have a focused goal in mind, as to what you want to achieve in the next few hours, days, months and years, and then work towards achieving them, instead of wandering about doing anything that ends up in your path.  
  • Learning to learn and because you yearn is the way to go. 
  • "The Standing Man" - Bridge of spies (2015)
  • The difference between humans and other animals is perseverance. 
  • Happiness is a skill that can be controlled by your own mind, without influence of external forces.
