One of my bucket list:
Build/manage a library, full of books worth reading, be it fiction, history, arts, science, business, and everything that will expand its readers’ horizon. And the library is, of course, should be very cozy and comfortable for people to sit, (or in my case, lay around) for hours. That’s gonna be lots of sofas and carpets and bean bags. Oh, why don’t we add some kind of auditorium to this library too? So we can have routine class/sharing session/movie screening (TEDx, Akademi Berbagi, PechaKucha, yay!) in this place. And I’ll encourage to people here to discuss what they’ve read, so talking *isn’t* gonna be forbidden. Talk! Discuss! Exchange what you’ve learned!
Well, in my current situation, it’s still far from realization. But perhaps if the circumstances are changed, (or I can convince some rich fellows to make good use of their money for this idea), it’ll be sooner to be realized.

I tend to wait for a year or so after a book was published before reading it. If people are still talking about it after quite a while, it possesses a property that every great work has: timelessness. Great works care not if they’re old or new. Great works defy time. Great works are timeless. – Read on Path.
"Science is generated by and devoted to free enquiry: the idea that any hypothesis, no matter how strange, deserves to be considered on its merits. The suppression of uncomfortable ideas may be common in religion and politics, but it is not the path to knowledge; it has no place in the endeavor of science. We do not know in advance who will discover fundamental new insights."

"Now I will a rhyme construct, By chosen words the young instruct. Cunningly devised endeavour, Con it and remember ever. Widths in circle here you see, Sketched out in strange obscurity."
