These are the moments when the powerful mind or the forceful character feels the ferment of the times, when his thoughts quicken, and when he can inject into the uncertainties of others the creative ideas which will strengthen them with purpose.

Jacob Bronowski

Mass, time, magnetic moment, the unconscious: we have grown up with these symbolic concepts, so that we are startled to be told that man had once to create them for himself. He had indeed, and he has: for mass is not an intuition in the muscle, and time is not bought ready-made at the watchmaker's.

The more I become aware of, the more I realize how relatively little I know of it, how many places I have still to go, how much more there is to learn.

Perhaps wisdom, at least for me, means realizing how small I am, and unwise, and how far I have yet to go.
