Thoughts

Philosophy is about the art of thinking;

Physics is about the art of explaining;

Mathematics is about the art of describing.

- Xie Ming

 

Bachelor degree certifies your ability of learning knowledge;

Master degree approves your skill of applying knowledge;

It's only Ph.D degree which indicates your readiness of creating knowledge.
