There’s as many atoms in a single molecule of your DNA as there are stars in the typical galaxy. We are, each of us, a little universe.

Imagination alone is not enough, because the reality of nature is far more wondrous than anything we can imagine.

This adventure is made possible by generations of searchers strictly adhering to a simple set of rules: Test ideas by experiment and observation; build on those ideas that pass the test; reject the ones that fail; follow the evidence, wherever it leads; and question everything.

Accept these terms, and the cosmos is yours.

Education is what people do to you, learning is what you do to yourself.
MIT Media Lab director Joi Ito at #TED2014. Pair with this excellent read on how to fuel the lifelong engine of learning beyond formal education.   (via educationalliberty)

Well if that doesn’t hit the nail on the proverbial head, I don’t know what does. Let’s be learning facilitators, not educators.

Favourite quotes by person: Neil deGrasse Tyson

This one is keeper. Brilliant set of quotes. 

P.S. The thing i hate about people who don’t believe in Science is that they enjoy all the comforts and conveniences of the modern day world. The thing they don’t ask is “How did all those come about?”

Our world is the way it is today because of Science and Technology, no two ways about it.

The iPhone comes with all the basics out of the box. And they are all perfectly serviceable.

Seriously. I could use the built in calendar for my scheduling and the notes app for the writing/capturing stuff. I don’t need Twitter or App.net. All of this extra stuff is “nice to have” not “need to have.” We would all do better to remember that.

I pretty much follow the same philosophy. I don’t install third-party apps just for the fun of it.

Think like a proton in the nucleus of an atom. Always positive, though surrounded by apathy and negativity.
I love each and every one of you. You can do it, my little protons.

It’s a strong force, that holds us together.

HAH! What a great quote!

The fundamental problem is that many products are created to be sold, not used

Hope the people in the tech media keep this quote in their heads before they file another meaningless piece from CES 2014. 

Success makes life easier. It doesn’t make living easier.

It is better to be hated for what you are than to be loved for what you are not.

It turns out that what drives an economy is science, science, science, If you want to create jobs, spend on science. … It was right there for everyone to see with Tim Berners-Lee and the World Wide Web. Much of our postwar economic boom from 1945 to the present grew from quantum mechanics. We take it for granted when we take out our cell phone and charge the battery.

Robert M. Solow of MIT, who developed a raft of equations to analyze economic growth. Mr. Solow won the Nobel Prize for Economics in 1987 for his pioneering work.
