"

If you walk along the street you will encounter a number of scientific problems. Of these, about 80 per cent are insoluble, while 19½ per cent are trivial. There is then perhaps half a per cent where skill, persistence, courage, creativity and originality can make a difference. It is always the task of the academic to swim in that half a per cent, asking the questions through which some progress can be made.

"In response to the theory of quantum mechanics, Einstein exclaimed, “God does not play dice with the universe.” Though this never happened, I would like to think that Paul Erdo˝s and the great probabilist, Mark Kac, replied, “Maybe so, but something is going on with the primes.”"

"Leaving parts of the language unspecified may seen odd or even dangerous, but it reflects C’s philosophy. One of the language’s goals is efficiency, which often means matching the way the hardware behaves. Some CPUs yield -1 when -9 is divided by 7, while others produce -2; the C89 standard simply reflects this fact of life."

not possession but the act of getting there,

Quote
"Women wonder why men struggle to approach and talk to them when a woman sends obvious signals for him to approach. When a guy wants to chat with an attractive woman, his analytical mind switches on. A million thoughts, scenarios, and potential problems race through his head. It becomes a psychological war."

“all men fear death. it’s a natural fear that consumes us all. we fear death because we feel that we haven’t loved well enough or loved at all, which ultimately are one and the same. however, when you make love with a truly great woman, one that deserves the utmost respect in this world and one that makes you feel truly powerful, that fear of death completely disappears. because when you are sharing your body and heart with a great woman the world fades away. you two are the only ones in the entire universe. you conquer what most lesser men have never conquered before, you have conquered a great woman’s heart, the most vulnerable thing she can offer to another. death no longer lingers in the mind. fear no longer clouds your heart. only passion for living, and for loving, become your sole reality. this is no easy task for it takes insurmountable courage. but remember this, for that moment when you are making love with a woman of true greatness you will feel immortal.”
