Sunday Dinner: Curious


“Curiosity is, in great and generous minds,
the first passion and the last.”
Samuel Johnson



“Enjoy every step you take.
If you’re curious, there is always something new
to be discovered in the backdrop
of your daily life.”
Roy T. Bennett



“I set out to discover the why of it,
and to transform my pleasure
into knowledge.”
Charles Baudelaire



“The important thing is not to stop questioning.
Curiosity has its own reason for existence.
One cannot help but be in awe
when he contemplates the mysteries of eternity, of life,
of the marvelous structure of reality.
It is enough if one tries merely to comprehend
a little of this mystery each day.
Albert Einstein
“Study hard what interests you the most
in the most undisciplined, irreverent
and original manner possible.”
Richard Feynman



“Remember to look up at the stars and not down at your feet.
Try to make sense of what you see
and wonder about what makes the universe exist.
Be curious.
And however difficult life may seem,
there is always something you can do and succeed at.
It matters that you don’t just give up.”
Stephen Hawking

    Love that beautiful white flower…what is it? And the Stephen Hawking quote just resonated with me today. Thank you so much!

    • Dear Jean,
      The Stephen Hawking quote called to me, too. He accomplished so much in his lifetime through such difficult personal circumstances. I admire him tremendously. The flower is a double Narcissus ‘Gay Tabour’. I ordered the bulbs from Brent and Becky’s Bulbs in Gloucester, VA. There are many beautiful varieties in Division 4- Double Narcissus, and I add a few more to the garden each fall because we enjoy them so much. Best wishes, WG
