curiosity

A Quote by Richard Feynman on science, physics, curiosity, innovation, and great mystery

To decide upon the answer is not scientific.  In order to make progress, one must leave the door to the unknown ajar---ajar only.

Richard Feynman (1918 - 1988)

A Quote by Richard Feynman on science, physics, curiosity, innovation, psyche, and mind

We are only at the beginning of the development of the human race; of the development of the human mind, of intelligent life--we have years and years in the future.  It is our responsibility not to give the answer today as to what it is all about, to drive everybody down in that direction and to say: "This is a solution to it all."  Because we will be chained then to the limits of our present imagination.  We will only be able to do those things that we think today are the things to do.  Whereas, if we leave always some room for doubt, some room for discussion, and proceed in a way analogous to the sciences, then this difficulty will not arise.

...it's the process of losing oneself in the jungle that makes science worth doing.

A Quote by Thomas J. "Tom" Peters on curiosity, passion, wow, education, experience, adventure, open mind, vision, and work

It boils down to studenthood-in-perpetuity / curiosity-in-perpetuity / applied fanatic restlessness. That is, a belief that life is . . . ONE BIG LEARNING EXPERIENCE. Something mysterious happens to a curious, fully engaged mind -- and it happens as often as not, subconsciously. Strange little sparks are set off, connections made, insights triggered. The results: an exponentially increased ability to tune up / reinvent / WOW-ize today's project at work.

A Quote by Thomas J. "Tom" Peters on curiosity, passion, education, marketing, warren bennis, david ogilvy, leadership, and vision

Winston Churchill said that appetite was the most important thing about education. Leadership guru Warren Bennis says he wants to be remembered as 'curious to the end.' David Ogilvy contends that the greatest ad copywriters are marked by an insatiable curiosity 'about every subject under the sun.'

A Quote by Philip Graham on window, antidote, comforting, quiet street, glass, chill, solid, and curiosity

The window offered an antidote: the comforting view of a quiet street.  I reached out to hold this sight but instead touched glass, felt its faint chill.  I pressed harder at the window.  If something so solid could be so easy to see through, I thought, then why weren't people the same way, open to any search, available to anyone's curiosity?

What we do, if we are successful, is to stir interest in the matter at hand, awaken enthusiasm for it, arouse a curiosity, kindle a feeling, fire up the imagination.

A Quote by Anaïs Nin on curiosity, internal self, external self, self, and stage

There were always in me, two women at least, one woman desperate and bewildered, who felt she was drowning and another who would leap into a scene, as upon a stage, conceal her true emotions because they were weaknesses, helplessness, despair, and present to the world only a smile, an eagerness, curiosity, enthusiasm, interest.

A Quote by Sir Winston Leonard Spencer Churchill on civilization, curiosity, history, honor, mind, nations, peace, war, and world

History's villains are more easily recognized in retrospect. In an article published in 1935 and reprinted in 1937, Winston Churchill expressed a curious ambivalence towards the German chancellor prior to the outbreak of war: We cannot tell whether Hitler will be the man who will once again let loose upon the world another war in which civilization will irretrievably succumb, or whether he will go down in history as the man who restored honour and peace of mind to the great Germanic nation. . . .
