Gliding Through the Pages

As an undergraduate Biology student, she has been a regular customer of the University & College of Science library for research or leisure.

Browsing the leaves

With the digital world conquering the globe nowadays, a trip to the library or the old gesture of leafing through the pages of a book becomes an option that most us may not even consider. Yet books tell a lot more story aside from its content: the origins of our curiosity.

Cultivate curiosity.

Cultivate curiosity.

With her soft fingers

She took a book

Page by page revealed to her

An adventure she enjoyed to look.


She dived into the sea and soared the sky

Met ammonites and mammoths of the past

She glided over galaxies so wide

Onto the night sky full of stars.


Brighter and brighter her eyes became

Now everything’s going to change

Her life will never be the same

For now anything in the world she can attain.

Formal education will make you a living; self-education will make you a fortune.

— Jim Rhon (American entrepreneur and author)
