  • “The brick walls are not there to keep us out,
  • the brick walls are there to give us a chance to show 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.”

PITTSBURGH, July 26 – Randy Pausch said obstacles serve a purpose: They “give us a chance to show how badly we want something.” Confronted with incurable cancer, he devised a last lecture that became an Internet sensation, a best-selling book and a celebration of a life spent achieving his dreams.

Ten months after giving the lecture, Pausch died yesterday at his home in Chesapeake, Virginia, said Jeffrey Zaslow, the Wall Street Journal writer who co-wrote Pausch’s book “The Last Lecture.” Pausch was 47.

Pausch was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer in September 2006. A year later, he gave the popular 76-minute speech titled “Really Achieving Your Childhood Dreams.”

Is international justice the enemy of peace?

It was only a little more than 15 years ago that the first of the contemporary international courts was created to prosecute those who commit war crimes, crimes against humanity and genocide.

That court, the International Criminal Tribunal for the former Yugoslavia (ICTY), may soon mete out justice to a new defendant, following the arrest in Belgrade of Radovan Karadzic, wartime leader of Bosnia’s Serbs.
