George Bernard Shaw (1856 - 1950), Man and Superman (1903) "Maxims for Revolutionists"
You see things; and you say, 'Why?' But I dream things that never were; and I say, "Why not?"
George Bernard Shaw (1856 - 1950), "Back to Methuselah" (1921), part 1, act 1
Don't let fear convince you that you're too weak to have courage. Fear is the opportunity for courage, not the proof of cowardice.
McCain, John (2004, September). In Search of Courage: Finding the Courage Within You. FastCompany, 51-56.
In the search for character and commitment, we must rid ourselves of our inherited, even cherished biases and prejudices. Character, ability and intelligence are not concentrated in one sex over the other, nor in persons with certain accents or in certain races or in persons holding degrees from some universities over others. When we indulge ourselves in such irrational prejudices, we damage ourselves most of all and ultimately assure ourselves of failure in competition with those more open and less biased.
J. Irwin Miller, Chairman of the Board (1951-1977), Cummins Inc. From 1983 letter about diversity at the company.

I will be working for the School of Informatics at Indiana University - Purdue University Indianapolis. I am excited and honored to have this opportunity to sample my profession before I am waist deep in it.

The administrative side of library research
I have come to realize that as an academic I will spend half my life researching and writing, and the remaining half picking up after the researching and writing. Today I went through all the library books I have in the study making sure I had them in Reference Manager and deciding which I no longer needed to use. I returned a dozen or so books to the university library. The ones I still need got a home on a book shelf. I can actually see carpeting in the study. LOL Oh well it is fun while it lasts...which isn't very long.
I need to spend some time filing articles. It shouldn't take more then an afternoon to finish this part of the project.
Then I have a stack of edited volumes that need to be entered into Reference Manager. I have them sorted so that I can do the keyboarding over the next month or so, entering the most important ones first.
