Six quotes on digging deep

Here are six quotes I’ve been thinking about related to digging deep into whatever is in front of you, making uninteresting work interesting.

Richard Feynman:

… nearly everything is really interesting if you go into it deeply enough …

G. K. Chesterton:

There is no such thing on earth as an uninteresting subject; the only thing that can exist is an uninterested person.

William Blake:

To see a world in a grain of sand,
And a heaven in a wild flower,
Hold infinity in the palm of your hand,
And eternity in an hour.

King Solomon:

Whatever your hand finds to do, do it with all your might …

James Woolsey:

If you’re enthusiastic about the things you’re working on, people will come ask you to do interesting things.

King Solomon:

Wisdom is in the presence of the one who has understanding, but the eyes of a fool are on the ends of the earth.
