The Dynamic Mind

leave a comment »

“A mind that is stretched by a new experience can never go back to its old dimensions.” – Oliver Wendell

Oilver Wendell’s thought reminds me of the words of American author William Mathews: “Knowledge is acquired by study and observation, but wisdom cometh by opportunity of leisure. The ripest thoughts come from a mind which is not always on the stretch, but fed, at times, by a wise passiveness.”

“After a period of creative silence, attacking any deadline is made simple. The mind has had time to lay down the brittle aggressiveness and is ready to operate efficiently. Even physical weariness passes and the goal ahead isn’t so far in the distance.” – Author Unknown
