I find curious people interesting.

You know who they are. 

They’re the ones that aren’t bored with life. They ask what if, they’re filled with wonder, they listen, they’re willing to be wrong and ready to take a chance to do something new. They’re simply fun to be around and they challenge me to step up to the plate rather than fall short of myself.

And here’s the good news: It’s not too late to recall and reinstate the curiosity we naturally had as children if we’ve lost it along the way.

I find that news encouraging — all is not lost.


“Remember to look up at the stars and not down at your feet.
Try to make sense of what you see and wonder about what makes the universe exist. Be curious. And however difficult life may seem, there is always something you can do and succeed at. It matters that you don't just give up.”

― Stephen Hawking (1942-2018)
