The mind that opens to a new idea never
returns to its original size. Albert Einstein
Beware of monotony; it’s the mother of
all the deadly sins. Edith Wharton.
“Remember to look up at the stars and not
down at your feet. Try to make sense of what you see and wonder about what
makes the universe exist. Be curious. And however difficult life may seem,
there is always something you can do and succeed at. It matters that you don't
just give up.” Stephen Hawking
“It is simply this: do not tire, never
lose interest, never grow indifferent—lose your invaluable curiosity and you
let yourself die. It's as simple as that.” Tove Jansson, Fair Play.
