“Curiosity is the very basis of education and if you tell me curiosity killed the cat I say only the cat died nobly.”

~Arnold Edinborough

I have learned that curiosity is a talent that helps guide the most successful among us.  A healthy curiosity prevents one from being taken advantage of, keeps you ahead of the pack in terms of key knowledge, new technology, etc., and allows you to solve intractable problems for you and others.  Don’t accept things at face value – ask questions, seek alternative points of view, and enjoy a healthy level of skepticism without becoming cynical.  Be curious.
