There are bigger stars than the sun. Mu Cephi is about 1500 times its size. Learn about snow crystals even when you’re not certain you’ll ever witness them fall. In essence, what you know is not everything there is. Do not make your world small by flourishing in your ignorance. It doesn’t matter how many degrees you have or what salary you get.
Have you ever thought who teaches babies that smiling represents jolly and crying expresses pain? Right. Your knowledge is not ultimate. Even that of yourself. 80% of the brain is water. Hydrate. Your left lung is smaller than your right lung to make room for your heart. Every tongue print is unique. 50,000 cells in your body died and were replaced by new ones while you were reading this sentence. The human eye can distinguish 10 million different colours. See how beautiful you are. Yet there is much more you should find out about yourself.

Math is everything. Maybe it’s the way they teach it in our schools that’s the problem. Like they do poetry. Believe me. You may not know it but your brain is always calculating. In fact, it is even more active when you are asleep. The sun does not rise, the sun does not set. It’s the earth that moves. 15 degrees per hour. So when you see the sun go down, you are part of a movement heading towards tomorrow. Math is poetry.
The joy I have found in reading is that ability to save my soul. For in wanting to know and meeting people’s minds in words, my thoughts, beliefs, and general mental makeup have been shaped. Read. Never let your brain settle.
