Curiosity leads to questioning
"The important thing is not to stop questioning. Curiosity has its own reason for existing."
- Albert Einstein, German-born US physicist and winner of the 1921 Nobel Prize in Physics
This is so very true. Every thought, every deep, ponderous thought comes from questioning deeper and further each time. Nothing can be attained if we don't try to scratch underneath things and facts that everyone takes as universal, unquestionable truths. Each one has his own assumptions but this doesn't mean these assumptions are right all the time. Only by digging to see what lies under the surface can we get to find new points of view. Remember that one question fosters another question and this one in turn a new one and so forth. This is a painful process because questioning takes one down roads not taken, and we human beings are always afraid of the unknown. Painful or not, this is the only way to develop, to grow, to evolve as persons. Think, think, think. The good thing about it is that the raw material to build a new thought is endless.
