Well, I just want to compile some motivational stuff in order to help me getting through the next hectic week. Some of them may have also appeared somewhere else in this blog, while some others are copied from friends’ blogs, or from the Internet. Just want to share the spirit. SO, at least until next week is over, I wanna say goodbye to those ‘demotivationals’ craps 😈 …

The true sign of intelligence is not knowledge but imagination.

When I hear somebody sigh, “Life is hard,” I am always tempted to ask, “Compared to what?

(Sydney J. Harris)

You gave me strength
To stand alone again
To face the world
Out on my own again
You put me high upon a pedestal
So high that I could almost see eternity
You needed me

(Anne Murray – You Needed Me)

Forrest Gump: What’s my destiny, Mama?
Mrs. Gump: You’re gonna have to figure that out for yourself.

(Forrest Gump)

Ignorance more frequently begets confidence than does knowledge: it is those who know little, and not those who know much, who so positively assert that this or that problem will never be solved by science.

(Charles Darwin)
