Why am I doing an astronomy PhD?

“Do not undertake a scientific career in quest of fame or money. There are easier and better ways to reach them. Undertake it if nothing else will satisfy you; for nothing else is probably what you will receive.”  — Cecilla Payne

When one starts to lose his/her own patience and becomes nervous about the future in this discouraged job market, it is always good idea to recollect the moment when one first got fascinated and decided to pursue a scientific career, and to adjust the compass to the right direction.
