### Ask me again in ten years too!

I quote others only the better to express myself.
---Montaigne.

Software is like sex,it's better when it's free

Classes will dull your mind,destroy the potential for authentic creativity.

Die Luft der Freiheit Weht

Dans les champs de l'observation le hasard ne favorise que les esprits préparés

No human investigation can be called real science if it cannot be demonstrated mathematically

Science is what we understand well enough to explain to a computer.Art is every thing else we do

Knuth的这个话是非常难以理解的，其实我觉得和前面Leonardo da Vinci的话是异曲同工的。人类可以告诉计算机的一定是高度数学化的，有完整的一套数学理论在背后支撑的。现在的演绎法有一个重要的工具就是计算机，我 所做的很多工作，不需要实验室，计算机就是实验室，可以用仿真验证理论，或者直接用仿真为理论提供依据。

• 不必去找老板，整个世界就是你的老板，有了问题到newsgroup或者BBS上发帖，当然更多的可能是直接发电邮给别人
• 不回受制于客观条件的限制，也不要什么经费，原来Han Zhu就说宿舍就是他的实验室
• 可以承受失败的代价，大不了重新写个程序就是了
• combining all the above, you can obtain freedom which is most important to an undergraduate student.

There can be miracles when you believe

Any kid working in a garage anywhere in the world with a good idea can put us out of business

Gary:This bussiness is a living organism,multiplying constantly,surrounded by predators.There's no room for idle time or second-guessing.
New discoveries are made hourly.New ideas are ready to be devoured and redefined.
This bussiness is binary.You're a one or a zero, alive or dead.There is no second place.

Gary:The only monopoly we have at NURV,Congressman is an monopoly on excellence.
Congressman, I don't need to remind you that the essence of competition has always been quite simple.
Any kid working in a garage anywhere in the world with a good idea can put us out of business.

Gary邀请Milo参加他的公司:
Gary: You're one of maybe twenty programmers in the world with the mastery it's gonna take to finish this thing.
The future holds limitless possibilities,Milo.
You decide what the future holds for you.Let me know.

Gary:
You have a choice.You can be forgotten or you can be remembered as one of the noble few who made it..Now is the time to go way beyond your protential.
Now's the time to dig down deep folks.Now's the time to show why you are the elite,the chosen few,the rare lights that give this company its uniqueness,its luminescence.Now's the time to shine!

Milo在揭露Gary丑闻的广告片中Gary说的话:

Gary:Those who don't innovate are doomed to die.

jounrlist 1:Now Skullbocks is thought to have organated right here-in this Palo Alto garage.
jounrlist 2:Do you consider this an ultimate victory for open source?
Milo:This is a garage.
