Curiosity is a number one thing
You’ve got to use it to your advantage
You got to make it sting
It killed the cat
And it can do so much more
If you use it properly
The world can be yours

The father of change
Mother of progress
It keeps the world occupied with itself
The entire universe
It came it saw and will always conquer
No enemy alive could ever defeat it
Here to stay but never the same way
As real as real this marvel Curiosity

it may have killed the cat, but it's a craving that humans will undoubtedly never quench... great read... blessings...

Philosophical, clear and concise, poet's apt definition of curiosity.

curiosity and the love of learning (after love of people, of course) are often what I think keep me going sometimes. So this one really speaks to me. Very nice.
