Favourite quotesEdit

To only a fraction of the human race does God give the privilege of earning one's bread doing what one would have gladly pursued free, for passion. I am very thankful.

— Fred Brooks, The Mythical Man-Month (Epilogue)

The real secret to success in life is to figure out what you WANT to do - and then to devote every minute of your waking life to learning how to do it really well. No matter what you do, if you do it well enough, you will make money. So I will cheerfully admit that, except for one very brief and predictably unsuccessful stint at trying to sell sports cars, I have always managed to be well paid for doing something that I would cheerfully have paid someone to let me do.

— Carroll Smith, Engineer to Win

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. And, like any great relationship, it just gets better and better as the years roll on.

Choose a job you love, and you'll never have to work a day in your life

— Confucius

What is wanted is not the will to believe, but the will to find out, which is the exact opposite.

— Bertrand Russell, Skeptical Essays, 1928
