Wise words from Einstein, Tesla, Spock, and others

-May 17, 2013

There’s a large whiteboard in my home office. I cover it each month in notes, inspirational thoughts, and reminders until it’s full of so many scribbles it looks more like the graffiti-covered walls of New York’s subways in the 1980s than a piece of office equipment from Staples.

I had to clear it this morning to make room for a new project, but before I did I took note of a few quotes I had jotted down in dry-erase marker.

Some came from esteemed engineers, some from artists, some from Star Trek and other sources. But each of the following 10 quotes provides some significance about STEM (science, technology, engineering, or math) or building a meaningful career, maybe even life, if you want to get philosophical.
