My Advise on The Art of Research 

image007

Favorite Quotes on Creative Research:

- “Water comes gushing forth from the sand, the deeper and deeper it is dug; likewise, intelligence will grow, the more and more a person studies.” - Thirukkural

- “I have learnt this at least by my experiment, that if one advances confidently in the direction of his dreams in the night, and endeavors to live the life he has imagined, he will meet with a success unexpected in common hours.” –Thoreau
