A Quote by Andrew Preston Peabody on character, force, heart, mind, soul, and work

A Quote by Andre Weil on experience, feeling, thought, time, and work

Every mathematician worthy of the name has experienced . . . the state of lucid exaltation in which one thought succeeds another as if miraculously . . . this feeling may last for hours at a time, even for days. Once you have experienced it, you are eager to repeat it but unable to do it at will, unless perhaps by dogged work. . . .

Andre Weil (1906 -)

A Quote by André Malraux on art, creation, experience, feeling, work, and world

A Quote by Ananda K. Coomaraswamy on children, effort, instinct, observation, thinking, and work

It is the natural instinct of a child to work from within outwards; "First I think, and then I draw my think." What wasted efforts we make to teach the child to stop thinking, and only to observe!
