With all its various implications, curiosity is certainly something for which we should all be thankful. If man didn't have a certain need to pry into the unknown, we'd still be eating raw meat, subsisting on whatever we could hunt and gather just to survive. Beset by inquisitiveness, the human race has fled a harsher world and made it better for future generations. Our interest in what could be drives us to make the impossible possible. Man hasn't sprouted wings like a bird, yet we fly higher and faster than any avian ever dreamed. Curiosity has created a world where medicine cures or eliminates health problems, food tantalizes, communication across vast distances is possible, travel and knowledge are more readily available to more people than ever before in the history of the world.
I am grateful for the curiosity that has driven others to make the world a brighter, greater place for the rest of us.
