Free Thinking

“Thinking must never submit itself, neither to a dogma, nor to a party, nor to a passion, nor to an interest, nor to a preconceived idea, nor to whatever it may be, if not to facts themselves, because, for it, to submit would be to cease to be.” Henri Poincare (French Mathematician)

Free_thinking

“La pensée ne doit jamais se soumettre, ni à un dogme, ni à un parti, ni à une passion, ni à un intérêt, ni à une idée préconçue, ni à quoi que ce soit, si ce n’est aux faits eux-mêmes, parce que, pour elle, se soumettre, ce serait cesser d’être.”, Henri Poincare 

One’s path

Nothing is more important than to go where one ought to go, instead of following the herd, like cattle, and go where they went. – Seneca, Roman philosopher (c. 4 BC- AD 65)
Cattle
“Nihil magis praestandum est, quam ne pecorum ritu sequamur antecedentium gregem, pergentes, non qua eundum est, sed qua itur”

Pleasure and rapture

There is pleasure in the pathless woods, there is rapture in the lonely shore, there is society where none intrudes, by the deep sea, and music in its roar; I love not Man the less, but Nature more.
– Lord Byron, British Poet (1788–1824)

La_Grotta_di_Byron
The “Byron’s Grotto” in Porto Venere, Italy, named in his honour, because he meditated here and drew inspiration from this place for his literary works.
