I believe that one of the most important personal attributes to have to enjoy your life and grow as a person is curiosity. If you are curious you will be asking a lot of questions of yourself and of others. Isn’t why a wonderful question to pose on anything, at any time, for any reason? This is true as long as the answer given to you is not “because.”
