“There are two ways of constructing a software design: 

One way is to make it so simple that there are obviously no deficiencies, and 

the other way is to make it so complicated that there are no obvious deficiencies. 

The first method is far more difficult. It demands the same skill, devotion, insight, and even inspiration as the discovery of the simple physical laws which underlie the complex phenomena of nature.”

To learn

posted Mar 21, 2016, 11:12 PM by Chaitanya Patel   [ updated Mar 21, 2016, 11:12 PM ]

To learn is to broaden, to experience more, to snatch new aspects of life for yourself. To refuse to learn or to be relieved at not having to learn is to commit a form of suicide; in the long run, a more meaningful type of suicide than the mere ending of physical life. 

Knowledge is not only power; it is happiness, and being taught is the intellectual analog of being loved.

— Isaac Asimov, Yours, Isaac Asimov: A Life in Letters
