On Curiosity – О Радозналости

“The important thing is not to stop questioning. Curiosity has its own reason for existence. 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 each day.” ― Albert Einstein

“Steve Jobs, the late Apple co­founder being called the Thomas Edison of his time, revealed in a commencement speech atStanford University in 2005 why he dropped out of college — and why he thought it was one of the best things he ever did.” (The Washington Post, by Valerie Strauss October 5, 2011)

“This quote is the farewell message placed on the back cover of the 1974 edition of The Whole Earth Catalog. Steve Jobs was a fan of the magazine. In his words:

“On the back of the cover of their final issue was a photograph of an early morning country road, the kind you might find yourself hitchhiking on if you were so adventurous. Beneath it were the words: ‘Stay hungry. Stay foolish.'”

The phrase is an encouragement to keep a state of learning and open state of mind, perhaps like a child that isn’t spoiled by a rigid mindset.” (SplattneLink)
