I just got these interesting 2 line maxims forwarded by my sis... Check them out! They are good~

Many people will walk in and out of your life.But only true friends will leave footprints in your heart.

To handle yourself, use your head;To handle others, use your heart.

Anger is only one letter short of danger

If someone betrays you once, it is his fault;
If he betrays you twice, it is your fault.

Great minds discuss ideas;
Average minds discuss events;
Small minds discuss people.

He, who loses money, loses much;
He, who loses a friend, loses much more;
He, who loses faith, loses all.

Beautiful young people are accidents of nature,
But beautiful old people are works of art.

Learn from the mistakes of others.
You can't live long enough to make them allyourself.

Friends, you and me...
You brought another friend...
And then there were 3...
We started our group...
Our circle of friends...
And like that circle...There is no beginning or end...

Yesterday is history.
Tomorrow is mystery.Today is a gift.

I found this interesting paragraph while reading thru the introduction pages of Rod Johnson's book titled "J2EE Design and Development". He was refering to his personal approach and attitude towards problem-solving & software development in this world of Computers (programming).

  • I'm a pragmatist. I care about outcomes more than ideology. When I work
    on a project, my primary goal is to deliver a quality result on time and budget.
    The technology that I use is a tool towards that goal, and not an end in
  • I believe sound OO principles should underpin J2EE
  • I believe that maintainability is crucial to the value of any
  • I try to avoid religious positions.

I get the feeling that all Computer programmers / developers need to have the same attitude towards their projects.

One more to my list of Certifications... Today, I wrote the SCBCD exam (Sun Certified Business Component Developer) for EJB 2.0 (Java Enterprise Edition 1.3), and scored 87% in it. The examination seemed to be very easy to me... and for a moment, I thought that I cracked the test. But, things did not work the way I thought. I was unknowingly wrong in few of my answers... Anyways, 87% is a far decent score. I am happy about it and its a big day for me ! ! ! Now... I am on my way for the SCWCD. Ha haa haa ~
