Favorite Quote: "Be patient towards all that is unsolved in your heart and try to love the questions themselves like locked rooms and like books that are written in a foreign tongue. Do not now seek answers which cannot be given because you would not be able to live them. And the point is, to live everything. Live the questions now. Perhaps you will then, gradually, without noticing it, live some distant day into the answer"
A Message for Students: "It is important that students bring a certain ragamuffin barefoot irreverence to their studes; they are not here to worship what is known, but to question it." Jacob Bronowski - The Ascent of Man (1975)
