I have a goal i hope to achieve in life. Everything i do must converge towards achieving that goal. In the beginning, it may look as though the new idea, or information i learn helps to build my personality. But when i sit back and meditate on what i call my 'ultimate goal' or 'life project', I use my latest acquisition to sharpen my project. Little by little, it starts germinating. The feeling is lovely. This is the root of my motivation.

Freedom in how to do it, and where and when to do it is an excellent motivation, but the sense of performing something applying all your creativity is a motivation in itself.

Or rather, I think that knowledge is not only related to the amount of time but to the quality of time invested to do something.

I think that knowledge is not related to the amount of the time invested, but to the quality of the time to do, to think, to learn... something.

Most times, it is simply curiousity or the quest for knowledge.
