the life goes on

有時候我自己也很納悶,怎麼不趕緊認真地找份工作,現在成天窩在家摸什麼露比程式語法,畢竟我又不可能閉門造車地看了二本電腦書後,就多了一項寫程式的才能,可以把它列在求職CV上應徵工程師職位。(當然,找不找得到工作,爽不爽去做,又是另一件主客觀交互影響的複雜前提下產生的單一悲慘結論XD)
今天在觀看Ruby on Rails Essential Trainning 影片時,忽然有一種頓悟:我的確不可能從頭到尾寫出一支程式,但這些過程至少幫助我學習看懂一點點別人所寫的程式碼,這些兜成一團數字英文不再是神祕的天書,而是遵守著邏輯秩序一磚一瓦搭建出來的堡壘,指向著設計開發者所要完成的企圖。這種想要理解對方的心情,就是我的動機。就如同我不會作詩寫詩沒有一點文藝的才氣,但是學習讀懂、欣賞好詩, 至少肚裡裏還有一點人性,外表還留有一點人樣。
有人說,數學和詩是人類智慧的終極呈現,數學鍛鍊著頭腦,而詩篇則豐富了心靈(Mathematics speaks to the mind, poetry to the heart )。我想,最棒的程式程碼,正是結合了兩者的完美,豈不是一件令人發抖的事嗎。(抖~~)



We don't read and write poetry because it's cute. We read and write poetry because we are members of the human race. And the human race is filled with passion. And medicine, law, business, engineering, these are noble pursuits and necessary to sustain life. But poetry, beauty, romance, love, these are what we stay alive for. To quote from Whitman, "O me! O life!... of the questions of these recurring; of the endless trains of the faithless--of cities filled with the foolish; what good amid these, O me, O life? Answer. That you are here - that life exists, and identity; that the powerful play goes on and you may contribute a verse." That the powerful play goes on and you may contribute a verse. What will your verse be?
