True Nobility

by Ernest Hemingway

In a calm sea every man is a pilot.But all sunshine without shade, all pleasure without pain, is not life at all.

Take the lot of the happiest–it is a tangled yarn. Bereavements and blessings,one following another, make us sad and blessed by turns. Even death itself makes life more loving. Men come closest to their true selves in the sober moments of life,under the shadows of sorrow and loss.

In the affairs of life or of business, it is not intellect that tells so much as character,not brains so much as heart, not genius so much as self-control, patience, and discipline, regulated by judgment.

I have always believed that the man who has begun to live more seriously within begins to live more simply without. In an age of extravagance and waste, I wish I could show to the world how few the real wants of humanity are.

To regret one’s errors to the point of not repeating them is true repentance. There is nothing noble in being superior to some other man. The true nobility is in being superior to your previous self.

Why Facebook

Why people like social on Fackbook? I asked my friend.

Q: hey, my co-worker wants to know, why people like facebook more than others, like QQ, myspace, etc.

A: cuz everyone is using them, lol

Q: so, why everyone using it? more fancy?

A: easier to communicate and share, i guess. and you can pick whatever you want to see.

Q: but why I don’t login so often?

A: cuz you are too busy, facebook is for the bored office dudes like me.

CCIE – 25198

After 7 hours, at 1:26AM, I finally got email from CISCO for CCIE report. Yes, I passed, the CCIE number is 25198. It doesn’t mean much to me because this is only my first milestone to be achieved. I may continuously go other tracking, such as security and voice.

The testing is harder than I expected because you cannot grasp the right pace. When I put a lot of time on Switching part and haven’t finish IGP by the lunch, I felt really frustrated. However, It’s very important to build infrastructure correct, otherwise, all multicast part and BGP part will have trouble.

The InternetExpert helped me a lot. I would like to thank them for many detailed materials.

Life as Summer Flower

A good friend of mine, who lived in Melbourn, sent me off-line message from MSN.

he is leaving
towarding his next station
took a part of life from each of us
in return, his glory
on his child’s heart

When asking people, at the time the Beatles disbanded, that do you still remember them, people always said, yes, forever, because we grew up when they grew up, we were matured when they were matured.

Yes, MJ is part of my younth life, as well as John Lennon.
