Dalai Lama’s words:

“And then he is so anxious about the future that he does not enjoy the present; the result being that he does not live in the present or the future; he lives as if he is never going to die, and then he dies having never really lived."

To conquer oneself is a greater victory than to conquer thousands in a battle.”




UT-Arlington has a bookplate for my favorite book in the central library and I chose Dr. YunSuan Sun’s biography. Here is what I wrote about him.

Learned from someone who has an unselfish vision for people, perseverance to get jobs done, and a honest, modest and positive attitude, this book about Dr. Sun teaches me "stay ambitious, stay humble".

The book is out of print but UT-Arlington library managed to get a copy for students.




“The Lessons I'm Leaving Behind” by Professor Randy Pausch.

He started his article as: “At many colleges, professors are asked to give a “last lecture.” …. A few weeks later, I learned that I had only months to live — I was dying of pancreatic cancer…..” His words have a strong resonance in me after what I have been through with my own illness. Video here

Dr. Pausch passed away on July 25 2008. 




Steve Jobs’ (CEO of Apple Computer and of Pixar Animation Studios) commencement addressed at Stanford in 2005 “'Stay hungry, stay foolishMr. Jobs' talk transcript here. Video clip is here.
