a tribute

one lecture which became a legacy, with millions of hearts touched and inspired, and possibly changed how they see life (and death) - including myself. i suppose this is the ultimate "head fake" that randy pausch has left us, who died last weekend after fighting a winning battle with cancer.

amazingly a book so small left you with so many things to ponder:

"you just have to decide whether you want to be the tigger or eeyore (in life)"

"experience is what you get when you didn't get what you wanted"

"you cannnot change the cards you are dealt. just how you play your hand."

"be patient with others. wait long enough, and people will surprise and impress you."

"it’s not about how to achieve your dreams. it’s about how to lead your life. if you lead your life the right way, the karma will take care of itself. the dreams will come to you."

i am just going to leave you with these thoughts...
