Belajarlah mengalah sampai tak seorangpun yang bisa mengalahkanmu. Belajarlah merendah sampai tak seorangpun yang bisa merendahkanmu.

If you would not be forgotten as soon as you are dead, either write something worth reading or do things worth writing.

Benjamin Franklin

Be a teacher. Help others around you learn new things and develop their mindset. Knowledge is better to be spread, not kept to oneself. Nicole Addison

The paper is not a mechanism for getting promotion. It’s a mechanism for conveying ideas from your head to somebody else’s head. If you don’t convey them, if you don’t bother to tell anybody about your ideas, then you might as well not have them.

Simon Peyton Jones

Kurang cerdas dapat diperbaiki dengan belajar, kurang cakap dapat dihilangkan dengan pengalaman. Namun, tidak jujur itu sulit diperbaiki.

Diploma disease is a term developed by Ronald Dore as part of a critique of the excessive reliance on the selection process in formal educational institutions (and hence on educational qualifications) as evidence of ability, training, and merit for entry to particular occupations, careers, or internal labour-markets. This phenomenon is sometimes referred to as credential inflation. As an unintended consequence of the belief that educational certificates are the key to obtaining the best-paid and most secure jobs, individuals may come to strive for constantly higher credentials in order to procure jobs which previously did not demand these, and for which their education does not in any case prepare them. Education thereby becomes merely a ritualistic process of accumulating qualifications.

Ketahuilah, sesungguhnya kehidupan dunia itu hanyalah permainan dan senda gurauan, perhiasan, dan saling berbangga di antara kamu serta berlomba dalam kekayaan dan anak keturunan, seperti hujan yang tanam-tanamannya mengagumkan para petani; kemudian (tanaman) itu menjadi kering dan kamu lihat warnanya kuning kemudian menjadi hancur. Dan di akhirat (nanti) ada azab yang keras dan ampunan dari Allah serta keridaan-Nya. Dan kehidupan dunia tidak lain hanyalah kesenangan yang palsu.

QS Al-Hadid (57):20
