(via RICHARD FEYNMAN ON THE MEANING OF LIFE | BRAIN PICKINGS)

Curiosity is something I love and cherish. Almost as much as I love Richard Feynman AND Brain Pickings. :)

From Brain Pickings. All are statements on curiosity as well:

“The world of learning is so broad, and the human soul is so limited in power! We reach forth and strain every nerve,” pioneering astronomerMARIA MITCHELL WROTE IN HER DIARY in 1854, “but we seize only a bit of the curtain that hides the infinite from us.” The meaning of life has indeed been PONDERED BY SOME OF HISTORY’S GREATEST LUMINARIES. For Carl Sagan, it was about OUR SIGNIFICANT INSIGNIFICANCE IN THE COSMOS; forAnnie Dillard, about INHABITING IMPERMANENCE; for Anaïs Nin, about living and relating to others “AS IF THEY MIGHT NOT BE THERE TOMORROW”; for Henry Miller, about THE MESMERISM OF THE UNKNOWN; for Leo Tolstoy, about FINDING KNOWLEDGE TO GUIDE OUR LIVES; forDavid Foster Wallace, about LEARNING HOW TO STAY TRULY CONSCIOUS.”
