"Genius is in-born, may it never be still-born."

"Oysters, irritated by grains of sand, give birth to pearls. Brains, irritated by curiosity, give birth to ideas."

"Brainpower is the bridge to the future; it is what transports you from wishful thinking to willful doing."

"Unless you keep learning & growing, the status quo has no status."

“There is a tide in the affairs of men, Which taken at the flood, leads on to fortune. Omitted, all the voyage of their life is bound in shallows and in miseries. On such a full sea are we now afloat. And we must take the current when it serves, or lose our ventures.”

~ William Shakespeare;

[Dilip Mukerjea has alerted me to this wonderful quote, which he had in fact learned when he was just a primary school kid in a top boarding school in India. He brought it up during the course of an email conversation, when we talked about the propensity of some fellow beings, who would prefer to sit idly "on the fence", so to speak, despite having opportunities standing right at their doorstep.]
