Food for Thought

There are worse things in the world to be accused of than being an intellect or a dreamer (or both). How different the world would be if everyone decided to forget about thinking big...and dreaming big. Passion and determination are powerful driving forces behind many life-defining and life-saving discoveries. We each have our roles to play, but often it's the people who stray from conventional boundaries who make the impossible...possible.

"Humanity needs practical men, who get the most out of their work, and, without forgetting the general good, safeguard their own interests. But humanity also needs dreamers, for whom the disinterested development of an enterprise is so captivating that it becomes impossible for them to devote their care to their own material profit."

~Marie Curie (French Physicist. Twice a winner of the Nobel prize.)

"All dream but not equally. Those who dream by night in the dusty recesses of their minds wake in the day to find that it was in vanity, but the dreamers of the day are dangerous, for they may act their dream with open eyes to make it possible." T. E. Lawrence
