Or simply the queasy thirst for knowledge. I am not referring to the thirst for reading, but for creation, discovery, exploration. Produce knowledge in every form! Thus, Lucian the Samosateus traveled to us on the moon in the 2nd century BC. Julius Verne in the center of the Earth and did Christopher Columbus discovering new […]
It’s been years ago! Over 25! Then the term “Bullying” did not exist to describe my experience. It was then a friendly teasing, between children, classmates, peers.
