A list of quotes I found interesting:

Among Biology’s grandest challenges is to explain how order and animate life spring from disordered and inanimate physical systems.
~ Mikail Khona and Dr. Ila R. Fiete

The question of how neurons encode meaning and evoke all the semantic associations of an object is the holy grail of neuroscience, whether you are studying memory, perception, art, or consciousness.
~ Dr. V. S. Ramachandran

Nature uses only the longest threads to weave her patterns, so each small piece of her fabric reveals the organization of the entire tapestry.
~ Dr. Richard Feynman

“So Vidita, what is it about a life in science that excites you the most?”
“You know that transient moment when you find something that, in that moment, you’re the only one in the world who knows? This feeling is addictive.”
~ Dr. Vidita Vaidya

There are wavelengths that people cannot see, there are sounds that people cannot hear, and maybe computers have thoughts that people cannot think.
~ Dr. Richard W. Hamming

Sometimes if you do only one thing, you can do it better than everyone.
~ Dr. Mriganka Sur

The way to the top is never easy. But the view is well worth it.
~ Dr. Karthik Raman (adapted)

You should be far more concerned with your current trajectory than with your current results.
~ James Clear

It is our choices that show what we truly are, far more than our abilities.
~ Prof. Albus Dumbledore (modified)

Luck is what happens when Preparation meets Opportunity.
~ Roman Philosopher Seneca

Let not thy winged days be spent in vain. When once gone no gold can buy them back again.
~ People’s President (India), Bharat Ratna A P J Abdul Kalam

Nothing in life is perfect. But, atleast statistics has the humility to accept it.
~ Dr. Nandan Sudarsanam

There’s no such thing as a pure discipline — life doesn’t exist in the boundaries that humans decide to place into academic departments.
~ Dr. Ashley Juavinett

Until we understand how the brain works, it is always an open question whether we have put our boundaries in the most revealing place.
~ Dr. Patricia Churchland, Dr. Christof Koch and Dr. Terry Sejnowski

The misapplication of effort is a very serious matter. Just hard work is not enough - it must be applied sensibly.
~ Dr. Richard W. Hamming

If you believe too much you’ll never notice the flaws; if you doubt too much you won’t get started. It requires a lovely balance.
~ Dr. Richard W. Hamming

When you find apparent flaws you’ve got to be sensitive and keep track of those things, and keep an eye out for how they can be explained or how the theory can be changed to fit them. Those are often the great contributions.
~ Dr. Richard W. Hamming

Great contributions are rarely done by adding another decimal place. It comes down to an emotional commitment. Most great scientists are completely committed to their problem. Those who don’t become committed seldom produce outstanding, first-class work.
~ Dr. Richard W. Hamming

Well, we know very little about the subconscious; but one thing you are pretty well aware of is that your dreams also come out of your subconscious. And you’re aware your dreams are, to a fair extent, a reworking of the experiences of the day. If you are deeply immersed and committed to a topic, day after day after day, your subconscious has nothing to do but work on your problem. And so you wake up one morning, or on some afternoon, and there’s the answer. For those who don’t get committed to their current problem, the subconscious goofs off on other things and doesn’t produce the big result. So the way to manage yourself is that when you have a real important problem you don’t let anything else get the center of your attention - you keep your thoughts on the problem. Keep your subconscious starved so it has to work on your problem, so you can sleep peacefully and get the answer in the morning, free.
~ Dr. Richard W. Hamming

It is a poor workman who blames his tools - the good man gets on with the job, given what he’s got, and gets the best answer he can.
~ Dr. Richard W. Hamming
