Quote of the Day, 8/19/06

Thinking today about learning, and curiosity...
Dorothy Parker
The cure for boredom is curiosity. There is no cure for curiosity.

Eleanor Roosevelt
I think, at a child's birth, if a mother could ask a fairy godmother to endow it with the most useful gift, that gift should be curiosity.

Franklin P. Adams
I find that a great part of the information I have was acquired by looking up something and finding something else on the way.
I had to smile at the Adams quote, because it was exactly what I was thinking when I stumbled on this set of quotes for today -- I always find good stuff I'm not looking for when I go looking for something else.
