      "when everything seems to be going against you, remember that the airplane takes off against the wind, not with it." I really like this one. Its not really engineering but there is a little bit of physics there :3

      also "engineers like to solve problems. If there are no problems, they will create their own." this makes me think twice before I design something. Is there a problem in the previous designs, if yes! then I ask myself, is this a real problem or I am making this up. If it is a real problem, then how can I make it better, if no! then there is nothing to make better.

      Engineering is not merely knowing and being knowledgeable, like a walking encyclopedia; engineering is not merely analysis; engineering is not merely the possession of the capacity to get elegant solutions to non-existent engineering problems; engineering is practicing the art of the organizing forces of technological change ... Engineers operate at the interface between science and society.

      In the military we used to say, "Close enough for Government Work"

      I was thinking of this one too!


      I'm not 100% sure I agree with it but that line in Interstellar about the world need needing more engineers made me think:
