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 tho

Brilliant Quote!

I saw a brilliant quote today which I thought I should store/share: 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.
