The beauty and wonder of curiosity.

brandfiercely1Branding, People + things that inspire us

“The important thing is not to stop questioning. Curiosity has its own reason for existing. One cannot help but be in awe when he contemplates the mysteries of eternity, of life, of the marvelous structure of reality. It is enough if one tries merely to comprehend a little of its mystery every day. Never lose a holy curiosity.”  – Albert Einstein

I wish I could just move into that conference room. It is fierce! I included one extra piece that is my favorite thing Dan has ever made. A Coke bed that he custom designed, hand crafted, and built for his son. The gas pump is a lamp that is part of the set. Rock on.
