"Just imagine for a day that you do not know anything, that what you believe could be completely false. Let go of your preconceptions and even your most cherished beliefs. Experiment.

See everything as a source for education; even the most banal encounters. Imagine that the world is still full of mystery."

Be a book; don't open up to everyone. Let only those who understand, read you."
Written in 2012 by Salahaddin Khalilov --- Azerbaijan
