Professor quotes are back! The best of October:
"I have only one regret. No, I have two. But I'm only going to tell you one."
"There are many ways to do this problem. The way I'm doing it on the board is the 'on the fly' method, which is not a very good way."
"If you have nothing to do, if you have no friends, then read this paper."
"If, in ten years, you want a reference to get a job or to get married, I'll remember you." (On why we should do an optional part of an assignment.)
"'Non-linear' should strike fear in your heart."
"It's a yucky place, so they acronym it to sound almost like a smurf."
