Be the change you want to see in the world

Be the change you want to see in the world.
--Mahatma Gandhi (born 2 October 1869 – died 30 January 1948, was an Indian activist who was the leader of the Indian independence movement against British rule. Employing nonviolent civil disobedience, Gandhi led India to independence and inspired movements for civil rights and freedom across the world.)

Who Needs a Librarian and Cataloger When You Have Google and Internet?

Who Needs a Librarian and Cataloger When You Have Google and Internet?
"Who Needs a Librarian and Cataloger When You Have Google and Internet? Well, Who Needs a Teacher When You Have Wikipedia? And, Who Needs a Doctor When You Have WebMD? Just as the Wikipedia Doesn't Replace the Teacher, and WebMD Doesn’t Replace the Doctor, In the Same Way, Google Search and Internet Doesn’t Replace the Librarian and Cataloger."
--Salman Haider (b. 1977. Librarian, cataloger, blogger, and creator of Librarianship Studies & Information Technology blog)

Your time is limited, so don't waste it living someone else's life (Steve Jobs)

Your time is limited, so don't waste it living someone else's life (Steve Jobs)
Your time is limited, so don't waste it living someone else's life. Don't be trapped by dogma - which is living with the results of other people's thinking. Don't let the noise of other's opinions drown out your own inner voice. And most important, have the courage to follow your heart and intuition. They somehow already know what you truly want to become. Everything else is secondary. 
--Steve Jobs (Co-founder of Apple Inc.) in his commencement address at Stanford University in 2005.
