Quotes from Various People

From Echo
April 2, 2007

Dr Gabriel Robins is a professor in the Department of Computer Science in the School of Engineering at UVA. Among other things he is one of the most accomplished ballroom dancers in the region. His Argentinian Tango is a joy to watch. But that is all beside the point. The reason we appreciate him is that he has this hobby of collecting out-of-the-mainstream quotes from various people and he has generously offered them to all on condition they attribute the collected source to him. We have printed several of them in past Echos. Here are a few more
