Some of my favourite quotes:

"First they laugh at you, then they ignore you and finally they fight you; and that is when you know you have won."
- Mahatma Ghandi
"Scientists often have a naive faith that if only they could discover enough facts about the problem, these facts would arrange themselves into a compelling and true solution"

On Motivation: "If all it takes to motivate you is a pretty picture and a saying, you must have an easy job. The type robots will be doing in a few years."
Invictus by William Ernest Henley
Out of the night that covers me,
Black as the Pit from pole to pole,
I thank whatever Gods may be,
For my unconquerable soul
In the fell clutch of circumstance,
I have not winced nor cried aloud
Under the bludgeonings of chance,
My head is bloody, but unbowed.
In this place of wrath and tears,
Looms but the Horror of the shade,
And yet the menace of the years,
Finds, and shall find, me unafraid.
It matters not how strait the gate,
How charged with punishment the scroll,
I am the master of my fate;
I am the captin of my soul.
