Are you still curious about things?

The important thing is not to stop questioning. Curiosity has its own reason for existing.

Albert Einstein

Do you still wonder about life, looking at the meaning of the word and its place in society today?

“Curiosity”| ˌkyo͝orēˈäsədē | noun (plural curiosities)

1 a strong desire to know or learn something: filled with curiosity, she peered through the window | curiosity got the better of me, so I called him.

2 a strange or unusual object or fact: he showed them some of the curiosities of the house. PHRASES curiosity killed the cat proverb being inquisitive about other people’s affairs may get you into trouble.

ORIGIN late Middle English: from Old French curiousete, from Latin curiositas, from curiosus(see curious).

This leads me to wonder what are the effects on humanity if it lacks curiosity.

Like who are you, where you come from, and what’s life all is about. I know it’s not only me. A lack of curiosity is becoming more noticeable today, especially among the youth.

If you’re curious by nature, you’re thinking what am I talking about? I don’t know about anyone else I’m finding talking to…
