Good Bye, Professor Randy Pausch

It’s an ending expected, just no one knew when before.
It did come today,
Write here, to memorize you, professor Randy Pausch

(CNN) — Randy Pausch, the professor whose “last lecture” became a runaway phenomenon on the Internet and was turned into a best-selling book, died Friday of pancreatic cancer, Carnegie Mellon University announced on its Web site.

Randy Pausch emphasized the joy of life in his “last lecture,” originally given in September 2007.

Pausch, 47, a computer science professor, delivered the lecture, “Really Achieving Your Childhood Dreams,” at Carnegie Mellon in September 2007, a month after being told he had three to six months to live because his cancer had returned.

The lanky, energetic Pausch talked about goals he had accomplished, like experiencing zero gravity and creating Disney attractions, and those he had not, including becoming a professional football plaXXXXXyer.

He used rejections he was handed when he applied for jobs at Disney to comment on the importance of persistence.

“The brick walls are there for a reason … to show us how badly we want something,” he said. “Because the brick walls are there to stop the people who don’t want it badly enough. They’re there to stop the other people.”

Smiling

那天在整理兩年前拍的照片
突然發現這一張燦爛的笑容

久違了, the smiling
