Books I'm Reading

THE LAST LECTURE

I just watched the “last lecture” video on youtube by professor Randy Pausch, 47, of Carnegie Mellon University who just recently died of cancer.
My favorite quote during the lecture: “The brick walls are there for a reason. The brick walls are not there to keep us out; the brick walls are there to give us a chance to show how badly we want something. The brick walls are there to stop the people who don’t want it badly enough. They are there to stop the other people!” – from The Last Lecture


Another great quote: “…experience is something you get when you don’t get what you want.”
If you have ever faced a great challenge in your life, this lecture is well worth the time to watch.
