My CV


Quotations:

Imagination is more important than knowledge. – Albert Einstein, physicist

Minds are like parachutes; they function only when they are open. – James Dewar, chemist

Who would not rather have the fame of Archimedes than that of his conqueror Marcellus? – W.R. Hamilton, mathematician

It is not about having what you want but wanting what you have. – Song lyric, Cheryl Crowe

To see the world in a grain of sand,
         and heaven in a wild flower.
Hold infinity in the palm of your hand,
         and eternity in an hour.
-- William Blake, in Auguries of Innocence

Human beings are ignorant enough in perception, imagination and knowledge that they cannot afford to be intolerant of each other’s ignorance.
