This one’s going to be a simple read…however one that will require an investment of your time to reflect upon and apply the nuances in your work and life after you hear from some thinkers who have influenced me.
As we continue our journey to build our commitment to learn I love listening to the thinking of some of the greatest minds that have gone before us. I love perceiving their Worldview that undergirded their thinking. Here are a few nuggets for you to ruminate upon, from hearts and minds whose influence continues to impact our world today. I recommend slowing down to fully process what they expressed…
“It took me four years to paint like Raphael, but a lifetime to paint like a child.” – Pablo Picasso
“Neither a lofty degree of intelligence nor imagination nor both together go to the making of genius. Love, love, love, that is the soul of genius.” – Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart
“The more I learn, the more I realize how much I don’t know.” – Albert Einstein
“ Learning is the only thing the mind never exhausts, never fears and never regrets. – Leonardo da Vinci
“The only true wisdom is in knowing you know nothing.” – Socrates
“Take My yoke upon you and learn from Me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls.” – Jesus
When we build a personal lifestyle of learning upon the combination of humility, hunger and love nothing can stop us from knowing more.
