Curosity Quotes

We all know about a cat's curiosity.

They say that "curiosity killed the cat", I say it made him smarter than that. Curiosity, it's good for all concerned

Curiosity is one of those curious things. It can be good or it can be bad, it all depends on how you use it. For this articles sake we're going to assume that the curiosity used here is the good kind. So, what is curiosity? It's wanting to know all you can about all things. Think about it. If you had no curiosity about things how would you learn? Why would you learn? If you don't care to know about anything how will you learn about anything? A curious mind is a busy mind.

Why Curiosity is Important

There are many reason why curiosity is important. One of the most important reasons that curiosity makes your mind active instead of passive. Not many people can function properly with a passive mind. As a writer I find curiosity rates right up there with perseverance. If you have an undeveloped sense of curiosity it becomes very hard to develop a story or article. You have to be curious about how things work and how people think to write something people will read.

Once your mind is active and your curiosity is bubbling your mind becomes more observant and open to new ideas. What could be better for a writer that the ability to become more open to new ideas. It's what we're all about.

This opens you up to whole new worlds and possibilities. All of the sudden your mind is work a mile a minute and questions you'd never thought of before come tumbling from your brain.

Now you become excited. All sorts of things seem possible. You are thinking plots and stories that are all new to you. How wonderful is this? The more you wonder, the more you question, and the more you learn. And to think it all came about because you became curious

I am so glad to be *curious* about this article.

I like to release my *inner child* as much as I can. I think sometimes we need to watch where our curious nature may lead us. And when we are aware of what the right levels should be. I think we can be certain, our curiosity will allow us to walk through those doors towards some interesting life events. :) . Yes, you have explained quite well how to do this responsibly. Love the quotes!

voted this up +++ Shared & tweeted. :) Shalom

Great article, KoffeKlatchGals! I love all your quotes but my favorite one is "Curiosity is the most powerful thing you own".

As I was reading your hub, I thought that curiosity and creativity were going well together.... and than I read your quote of Akio Morita :-)

I love your choice of picture with the cat... cat's are indeed so curious and the funny thing is when they are so absorbed by their curiousity and you touched them.... they jumped... as we would do :-)

Enjoy your weekend!

dahoglund, I do believe that many of us write due to our curiosity. Sometimes we are as surprised at the ending of one of our stories as the readers are.

Love this..I am always looking for just the right quote....they seem to say in just a few words exactly what needs to be said.

the Curious Kitty...you gotta' love 'em. My little newbie (that I wrote a hub about) is a Hemingway kitty and uses his little paws like hands. HE is sooo curious. One of his favorite things to do is climb in any bag that is available. There must be something interesting in there he seems to think. What fun it is to have this new baby.

It is good to know that curious people are less prone to depression. thanks for sharing this. Angels are on the way again this evening. ps

I would say that is one of the reasons we writers/poets write: curiosity.

It is also said that 'curiosity killed the cat, but perseverance brought her back'.

It happened to me today. While hiking with my dog, I decides to follow a deer trail, yet again. The trail took us into deep 'my height' grass and brush. Soon the trail faded, as all of them do, but I didn't want to return. On and on we hiked. Today it was about 25 C with lot of humidity. These two factors and those pesky mosquitoes kept us at bay. We were exhausted and wanted to take a rest, but with tall grass and humidity, decided against it. We carried on with K2 the dog and I taking turns making the path. We found the right trail after a one hour ordeal that felt like a whole day. But seeing an open area, felt like a whole out of this world experience.

Did we learn anything? You bet.

The lesson learned is this: We shouldn't go off any trail. It is not environmental (flora and fauna) friendly and is not safe.

A very creative article on a topic that has huge impact on what I do everyday! Voted up!
