Thoughts from Alhambra's great minds"Can you believe this? I was once trying to reach the horizon and when I did, I saw a sign saying there were another nine horizons. Man, it took forever to get to the ninth one, and I knew that my life will be boundless the moment I looked up and saw some thousands horizons above.""Telling anyone what to do while not seeing that they’re fitting perfectly with their environment is proof that you haven’t taken enough biology.""I don’t need answer for everything as long as I can come up with a question.""Talented people make the possible look rather easy, but ambitious people make the possible run in shame""Sometimes the beauty of an object can only be seen from the inside.""Your face tells me a lot more than you have ever told anyone before."Other Programs at Alhambra designed to provide additional
