His career-crowning idea of evolution by natural selection is a triumph of human achievement that sprang from the perfectly achievable endeavors of careful observation, meticulous note-taking, and joyous, boundless curiousity.
Darwin Slept Here ~Eric Simons
I went in to Journalism because A) I loved to write and B) I had an endless fierce curiousity about everything. I think there is a story everywhere and I love to ask questions. Curiousity is not encouraged enough in school-aged children (while we like our students to do reports and essays we prefer they not go beyond the accepted facts and figures that we all know). People get exasperated when you want to know things all the time. Except for when it is time for a trivia night and they need a partner, of course. Those words above? The joyous, boundless curiousity mixed with observation and note-taking? They make my heart sing.
