Necessity is the mistress and guide of Nature. - Leonardo da Vinci
I am enough of an artist to draw freely upon my imagination, Imagination is more important than knowledge. Knowledge is limited. Imagination encircles the world.
- Albert Einstein
I do not know what I may appear to the world, but to myself I seem to have been only like a boy playing on the seashore, and diverting myself in now and then finding a smoother pebble or a prettier shell than ordinary, whilst the great ocean of truth lay all undiscovered before me.
- Issac newton
Look up at the stars and not down at your feet. Try to make sense of what you see and wonder about what makes the universe exist. Be curious.
– Stephen Hawking
Values and Virtues of Researchers
Shall not be deceitful in their studies. Shall not obsess over acquiring wealth. Shall live every minute of the day as an honorable researcher. Shall be devoted to research than title. Shall be concerned about what they don’t know rather than boasting about what they know.
- Hyung Sup Choi, First President of KIST
