"Genius is in-born, may it never be still-born."

"Oysters, irritated by grains of sand, give birth to pearls. Brains, irritated by curiosity, give birth to ideas."

"Brainpower is the bridge to the future; it is what transports you from wishful thinking to willful doing."

"Unless you keep learning & growing, the status quo has no status."

Place a mirror in front of you (or hold it in one hand).

In the other hand, hold a pencil. On a sheet of paper draw the shape of a concentric star. Hold something about a foot above the paper so that you cannot see this star directly.

Now, whilst looking at the reflection of this star in the mirror, draw the shape of the star between the two concentric lines, all the way round.

Can you do it?
