My ‘philosophy’, borrowed from Ecc 3:1-8, is that ‘There is a time for everything, and a season for every activity under the heavens‘. In my case, I enjoy spending my time in activities which evoke my mind (through research, academia, politics), body (through rowing, with Kalkara RC) and soul (through everything I do).
Ecc 3: 1-8
There is a time for everything, and a season for every activity under the heavens:
a time to be born and a time to die,
a time to plant and a time to uproot,
a time to kill and a time to heal,
a time to tear down and a time to build,
a time to weep and a time to laugh,
a time to mourn and a time to dance,
a time to scatter stones and a time to gather them,
a time to embrace and a time to refrain from embracing,
a time to search and a time to give up,
a time to keep and a time to throw away,
a time to tear and a time to mend,
a time to be silent and a time to speak,
a time to love and a time to hate,
a time for war and a time for peace.
I consider myself lucky to be, by choice, a Roman Catholic scientist who finds no contradiction in being so. For me, “The more new science is discovered, the more we feel there must be a chosen path through the randomness of the universe and the evolutionary process. In this path, we seem to be so exceptionally well-guided, and for this we are truly grateful.” Taken from ‘Natural Architectural Design‘, by Joseph N. Grima, Aaron R.
