Yesterday I was watching late Professor Randy Pausch's Last Lecture videos. Its one of the most inspiring lectures I have ever listened to. Here are a few quotes by him :
"The brick walls are not there to keep us out. The brick walls are there to give us a chance to show how badly we want something. Because the brick walls are there to stop the people who don’t want it badly enough".
"Experience is what you get when you didn’t get what you wanted"
"When you see yourself doing something badly and nobody’s bothering to tell you anymore, that’s a very bad place to be. Your critics are your ones telling you they still love you and care"
"Have something to bring to the table, because that will make you more welcome."..
