Curiosity DID NOT Kill the Cat

Unknown

You know what DID kill the cat? Fear. Fear encrusted the cat like a toxic blanket. Because of this, the cat, stuck high up in a tree, could not come down. He was paralyzed and not curious enough to see what would happen if he tried.

Curiosity encourages us to learn, to explore, to question. Curiosity leads to knowledge.

No one has ever said so, but I wonder sometimes if my questions make people think I’m nosy when I’m actually inquiring and attempting to gather information.

Answers gives us knowledge and truth sets us free.

So, be curious and climb down from that tree.

And, if you need to hang on for dear life, do it while standing firmly on the ground.
