Life is not just a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in a pretty and well preserved body, but rather to skid in broadside, thoroughly used up, totally worn out, and loudly proclaiming: WOW.... WHAT A RIDE !!!
"إني لأقرأ القرآن وأنظر في آيه، فيحير عقلي بها، وأعجب من حفاظ القرآن كيف يهنيهم النوم، ويسعهم أن يشتغلوا بشئ من الدنيا وهم يتلون كلام الله، أما إنهم لو فهموا ما يتلون، وعرفوا حقه فتلذذوا به واستحلوا المناجاة لذهب عنهم النوم فرحاً بما رزقوا"
"What really is the point of trying to teach anything to anybody?"
Richard continued, "What I mean is that if you really want to understand something, the best way is to try and explain it to someone else. That forces you to sort it out in your own mind. And the more slow and dim-witted your pupil, the more you have to break things down into more and more simple ideas. And that's really the essence of programming. By the time you've sorted out a complicated idea into little steps that even a stupid machine can deal with, you've certainly learned something about it yourself. The teacher usually learns more than the pupil. Isn't that true?"
