  • If it was easy, I wouldn't even start.
  • The best thing you can do in any circumstance is to be focused and do your best in what you're doing right now.

When you're stuck on one problem, move to the next." - Saharon Shelah.
  • "I think it's rarely about what you actually learn in class... it's mostly about things that you stay motivated to go and continue to do on your own." - Maryam Mirzakhani

  • The goal of the "rushed" class was not to make you a master, but to give you enough knowledge to know where to Google for the things you really need. - Xander Henderson
  • We don't get to choose our time. - Ancient one
  • Governing dynamics - J. Nash in Beautiful mind
  • Grit your teeth and look straight ahead, Even if you stop and crouch down, time won’t wait for you or snuggle you and grieve along with you. – Kyojuro Rengoku
