Nothing like Dream

There is nothing like dream to create the future. Utopia today, flesh and blood tomorrow.

Curiosity

The important thing is not to stop questioning. Curiosity has its own reason for existing. One cannot help but be in awe when he contemplates the mysteries of eternity, of life, of the marvelous structure of reality. It is enough if one tries merely to comprehend a little of this mystery every day. Never lose a holy curiosity.

~ Albert Einstein

Curiosity

Curiosity is one of the most powerful forces of nature. It can take you places no one’s ever been, and let you do things no one’s ever done. Will that make you weird? Or different? Who cares if it does? Every single one of us is different. No one on this planet is just like you. Being different is what makes you special. So find what you love. Learn everything you can about it. And share the best parts with anyone who will listen. You never know who you’ll inspire.

Writing, a Lonely Occupation

Writing is a lonely occupation at best. Of course there are stimulating and even happy associations with friends and colleagues, but during the actual work of creation the writer cuts himself off from all others and confronts his subject alone. He moves into a realm where he has never been before — perhaps where no one has ever been. It is a lonely place, even a little frightening.

~ Rachel Carson

Fulfillment Comes from Within

Pursuing what you want to do and achieving your goal is not like finding the burning bush or discovering a gold mine. There are usually no epiphanies, no sudden reversals of fortune. Fulfillment comes in fits and starts… Fulfillment comes in many guises, and it can come to us in our lives at any time… But only we can make sure we will be fulfilled. If we feel empty, no amount of water can fill our well. It has to come from within, from the underground springs and streams.
