  1. One of many memorable quotes of Avicenna aka Ibn Sina:

    “My profession is to be forever journeying, to travel about the Universe so that I may know all its conditions.”(Ibn Sina, aka Avicenna, 11th century Muslim Philosopher, Physician and Scientist, author of the Canon of Medicine, circa 1037CE)

    Ibn Sina was a polymath whose main life achievement was the very difficult to understand Islamic Philosophy he created: he wrote his iconic book ‘Canon of Medicine’ while taking a break from the Philosophy he was writing about(almost like a comic relief timeout!!)
