10 Quotes About Curiosity

Curious Cat
"What does one feel when he is curious?
What does he feel when he thinks?
What does she look at when she blinks?

Curiosity brings upon them
A state of wonder
Which they cannot deny,
They keep wondering and wondering
For the knowledge
They cannot petrify.

... Newton sat under a tree,
Only to feel an apple fall,
He came up with gravity,
Since the tree was very, very tall.

Galileo looked at the stars,
With a telescope of great improvement,
He saw the moons of Jupiter,
Circling in an orbital movement.

Da Vinci painted pictures,
Like that of the Mona Lisa,
He experimented with engineering,
And did it without a Visa".

In this poem, poet Justin Reamer captures something of the spirit of curiosity. A curious mind, an inquisitive disposition, is something indispensable for a life of adventure (and perhaps misadventure!).
Adventures seldom drop onto people's laps from the abyss. They are sought out by people overcome with a sense of curiosity and a thirst to know.
With that in mind, we present to you in this article 10 quotations by people who were experts in their respective fields to inspire you to be inquisitive, and to rekindle the fire of curiosity which burns so brightly in children, but which sadly becomes dim for many people as they grow older.

7) Curiosity Leads to Enlightenment

“Curiosity in children, is but an appetite for knowledge. The great reason why children abandon themselves wholly to silly pursuits and trifle away their time insipidly is, because they find their curiosity balked, and their inquiries neglected". John Locke.

8) A Curie For Ignorance

9) Young At Heart

“Anyone who stops learning is old, whether at twenty or eighty. Anyone who keeps learning stays young.” Henry Ford.

10) Eyes Wide Open

“I think the big mistake in schools is trying to teach children anything, and by using fear as the basic motivation. Fear of getting failing grades, fear of not staying with your class, etc. Interest can produce learning on a scale compared to fear as a nuclear explosion to a firecracker.” Stanley Kubrik.
