Articles and Quotes


  1. "Tell me and I forget. Teach me and I remember. Involve me and I learn."
    -- by Benjamin Franklin
  2. "In science, self-satisfaction is death.
    Personal self-satisfaction is the death of the scientist.
    Collective self-satisfaction is the death of the research.
    It is restlessness, anxiety, dissatisfaction, agony of mind that nourish science."

    -- by Jacques-Lucien Monod
  3. "The irony does not escape him: that the one who comes to teach learns the keenest of lessons,
    while those who come to learn; learn nothing."

    --by J. M. Coetzee (Book: Disgrace)
