The things that I have said when I was young and curious about whatever the subject matter was, I respect those - those are growing pains.

What I'm exploring right now is the subject of my own mortality. It's an area that I'm curious about, and I'm researching it to see if there's a photographic essay in it for me. If images don't start to come, I'll go to something else.
Be curious, not judgmental.

Neil deGrasse Tyson
Don't try to be young. Just open your mind. Stay interested in stuff. There are so many things I won't live long enough to find out about, but I'm still curious about them. You know people who are already saying, 'I'm going to be 30 - oh, what am I going to do?' Well, use that decade! Use them all!

Jacques Yves Cousteau
Be kind. It's worthwhile to make an effort to learn about other people and figure out what you might have in common with them.

Martin Luther King, Jr.
