"Tell me and I forget. Teach me and I remember. Involve me and I learn."
---Benjamin Franklin
"Imagination is more important than knowledge. For knowledge is limited, whereas imagination embraces the entire world, stimulating progress, giving birth to evolution."
---Albert Einstein
"THESIS: Never let ideology or "good taste" stop you from proving a good theorem?"
---Saharon Shelah in The Future of Set Theory
"I love to do research, I want to do research, I have to do research, and I hate to sit down and begin to do research---I always try to put it off just as long as I can.
....Isn't there something I can (must?) do first? Shouldn't I sharpen my pencils perhaps?"

---Paul Halmos, I Want to be a Mathematician
If you keep proving stuff that others have done, getting confidence, increasing the complexities of your solutions - for the fun of it - then one day you'll turn around and discover that nobody actually did that one! And that's the way to become a computer scientist.
--Richard Feynman, Feynman Lectures on Computation
