Golden words of [my] students
- One of my students, after passing through a one week course on fossil corals, studying the course material, and starting to look at the own samples, at least two times the day and very decisive: "Hannes, eso no puede ser." (Hannes, this is not possible.)
- After having prepared an abstract for a congress talk without having contacted me beforehand : "Mas tarde enviare el resumen al congreso donde pondre tu nombre para que me ayudes." (Later I send you the [=my] abstract for the congress where I put your name so that you [are obliged to] help me.)
- After participating in a one week course on fossil corals and having received a CD-ROM with a few hundred pages course material with hundreds of illustrations as PDF files, one student asked me (I do not remember the words) whether he may obtain all the figures as CDR or JPG because he wants to put them on his own Internet page.
- In preparation of a research project including various students and offering grants, one of those guys wrote "
Puedo estar en su proyecto sin que cuente para tesis solo con la beca para ayudarme?" [May I participate in your project without writing the thesis, only with the grant to help me?]
