                                                  Responsibilities gravitate to the person who can shoulder them; power to the man who knows how.

                                                    The recipe for perpetual ignorance is: be satisfied with your opinions and content with your knowledge.

Also, the people I met at the university, most of them are still my colleagues now. People I've known for years are all in the industry together.
