My Guiding Aphorisms

  1. There is a difference between intellectual understanding and intuitive understanding. One is domain dependent.
  2. First, do something extraordinary, solely for yourself. Only then do you begin to share with others. Only then do you teach others. A student always finds teachers, and the best teachers tend to be the best students.
  3. Simple movements with variable resistance, repeated and combined together, form compound expressions.
  4. There is a roundabout logic to life. Goal-orientation is the wrong orientation.
  5. How a thing breaks tells you more about it than how a thing lives.
