Enthusiasm

Every memorable act in the history of the world is a triumph of enthusiasm.

Nothing great was ever achieved without it because it gives any challenge or any occupation, no matter how frightening or difficult, a new meaning.

Without enthusiasm you are doomed to a life of mediocrity but with it you can accomplish miracles.

-- Og Mandino (1923-1996)


If you want to be successful in your field of study, being interested and having enthusiasm is the key.

Knowledge and wisdom

To acquire knowledge, one must study;

but to acquire wisdom, one must observe.

--- Marilyn vos Savant


The goal of learning is to acquire knowledge and acquire wisdom.
The work we put into study helps us acquire knowledge, the work we put into observation helps us to acquire wisdom!

To observe, is not just to look at things outside and around us, but also the mind and the soul within ourselves!
