"Error often is to be preferred to indecision"

When I visited Princeton University, I saw this statement from Aaron Burr Jr, the 3rd Vice President of the United States under Thomas Jefferson:

"Error often is to be preferred to indecision"

From my observation, many men are still too afraid of mistakes and incapable of making decisions quickly and confidently. The experience of learning from mistakes is just so much valuable than making no decision and idling that you would wonder why people choose the latter.

"Don't let anyone tell you that you're too young
to change the world"


Similarly, don't let anyone tell you that you're too old to change the world.



"Everything should be made as simple as possible,
but not more so"


One of my favorite quotes from Einstein. I hate unnecessary complexity.
