I was in the archive room at work filing a slew of copyright certificates I recently received. When I finished, I glanced around the shelves full of books, delaying going back to my desk, and I noticed two small books with interesting covers sitting on the edge of a high shelf. I pulled one down and found the title was "The Book of Wisdom"—basically, a book of quotes. I opened to a random page, and the quote was:
"Satisfaction of one's curiosity is one of the greatest sources of happiness in life."
I had to laugh. I love when the Universe speaks directly to me this way, even if it's poking fun at me. I also smiled because it was just several months ago I ran across Pauling's name and read about what an amazing chemist, intellectual thinker, and peace activist he was. Seems I'm in good company today in the quantum realm.
