One of the secrets of life is to keep our intellectual curiosity acute. We have to forever curiously test new opinions and court new impressions. Remember when you were a child and you were curious about everything? And how much you learned, how much you grew and the absolute excitement of it all? Why did we stop being curious?
It is a shameful thing to be weary of inquiry when what we search for is excellence – Cicero
Only the curious will learn and only the resolute overcome the obstacles to learning. The quest quotient always excites more than the intelligence quotient. The curious will discover so much more and see so much more.
The important thing is not to stop questioning. Curiosity has its own reason for existing. One cannot help but be in awe when one contemplates the mysteries of eternity, of life, of the marvelous structure of reality – Albert Einstein
The first and simplest emotion which we discover in the human mind is curiosity. Then we grow up, and so many of us lose our natural curiosity. Imagine if someone was not curious about what was over the horizon? We would still think the world was flat!
Creatures whose mainspring is curiosity enjoy the accumulating of facts far more than the pausing at times to reflect on those facts – Clare Day
The cure for boredom is curiosity, but there is no cure for curiosity. Become curious.
Seize the moment of excited curiosity on any subject to solve your doubts; for if you let it pass, the desire may never return, and you may remain in ignorance for ever.
We wish you a curious November!
