"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."

[Richard Saul Wurman is one of my favourite authors. Among his many books, I have owned & read his 'Follow the Yellow Brick Road: Learning to Give, Take, & Use Instructions', 'Information Anxiety', 'Information Anxiety II', 'Information Architects' & 'Information Design'.

Readers can go to this link to read my review of 'Information Anxiety I & II'.

Much of my personal understanding about information mastery or rather surviving information overload came from his books.]
