"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."

“If, sir, men were all virtuous, I should with great alacrity teach them all to fly. But what would be the security of the good if the bad could at pleasure invade them from the sky? Against an army sailing through the clouds neither wall, nor mountains, nor seas could afford any security.” ~ Samuel Johnson;

“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;

“Some of the best lessons we ever learn are learned from past mistakes. The error of the past is the wisdom and success of the future.” ~ Dale E. Turner;

“Where observation is concerned, chance favors only the prepared mind.” ~ Louis Pasteur;

“All our knowledge has its origins in our perceptions.” ~ Leonardo da Vinci;

"Timing is everything!" ~ Author Unknown;

“Excellence is an art won by training and habituation. We do not act rightly because we have virtue or excellence, but we rather have those because we have acted rightly. We are what we repeatedly do. Excellence, then, is not an act but a habit.” ~ Aristotle;

“If I need a cause for celebration; Or a comfort I can use to ease my mind; I rely on my imagination; And I dream of an imaginary time.” ~ Billy Joel;
