``How to do research'': some hints (*)
Main advice (a somewhat "Carpe Diem" for PhD students) (unknown author!):
Don't wait until it's over..... Live your life now. A common belief
is that ``it will be better when this is over.'' You can't wait
until it is over to enjoy your life. The reality is, it is never
over. After this class there will be another class, after this paper
there'll be another paper to write, after the dissertation you will
need to find a job, and after that you will need to work on
promotions . . . .
