If I am repaired, can we meet again for the first time, in all of the places I have feared to go, and then, again, in all of the places I will have forgotten, if I am repaired?

Humanity also needs dreamers, for whom the disinterested development of an enterprise is so captivating that it becomes impossible for them to devote their care to their own material profit. Without doubt, these dreamers do not deserve wealth, because they do not desire it. Even so, a well-organized society should assure to such workers the efficient means of accomplishing their task, in a life freed from material care and freely consecrated to research. -Marie Curie, scientist, Nobel laureate (1867-1934)


  1. i think about the word also which implies that first humanity needs those who operate motivated by material profit, the dreamers only secondary. i don't know. i just don't know. or - i don't want to know. i like to dream of everyone not being motivated by material profit but instead being motivated by need.


  2. Maybe... that doesn't only go for the dreamers... but also for the doers, the planners, the makers, the cleaners, ...
    If everbody did what he does out of interest or for personal satisfaction and not for wealth... there would be a lot more freedom


  3. erin... perhaps your dream motivates your interpretation of the word 'also'.

    stephanie... i think we would be a healthier lot anyway. there's no greater cancer than despair.

  4. well said Steven!
