The known is finite,
the unknown
intellectually we stand on an islet
in the midst of an
ocean of inexplicability. Our
business in every generation
is to reclaim a little more land.

Thomas Henry Huxley

The important thing is not to stop
questioning. Curiosity has its
reasons for existing. One
cannot help but be in awe when

he contemplates the mysteries of
eternity, of life, of the marvelous
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

It is not from space that I must seek
my dignity, but from the government
of my
thought. I shall have no more if
I possess worlds. By space the universe
encompasses and swallows me up
like an atom; by thought I
the world.

Blaise Pascal

Emancipate yourself from mental slavery.
None but ourselves can free our minds.

Bob Marley

Since we are destined to live out
our lives in the prison of our minds,
our one duty is to furnish it well.

Peter Ustinov

The primary purpose of a liberal education
is to make one's mind a pleasant place
in which to spend one's leisure.

Sydney J. Harris

Wisdom is proved righteous by its works.--Matt. 11:19

("Tut, tut, child," said the Duchess. "Everything's got a moral if only you can find it.")
