Let go of certainty. The opposite isn't uncertainty. It's openness, curiosity and a willingness to embrace paradox, rather than choose up sides. The ultimate challenge is to accept ourselves exactly as we are, but never stop trying to learn and grow. [Tony Schwartz]
Amazed though I am at how little I know about things I thought myself sure of, I continue to reach out to learn, discover, and uncover what is hidden from my view. I don’t join in or align myself with groups and causes, generally. I prefer the edge where I can take things in at my own pace. Or NOT.
Socrates told us, "the unexamined life is not worth living." I think he's calling for curiosity, more than knowledge. In every human society at all times and at all levels, the curious are at the leading edge. [Roger Ebert]
It does make sense, at least it seems to, that I remain ever more curious as my years pile up, one upon the last.
And yet I am never DONE. My thirst for discovering and learning is NOT quenchable.
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 would be curiosity. [Eleanor Roosevelt]
I think that sounds divine. How about you?!
I love you, Currie
