Curiosity

Cats haven’t cornered the market on curiosity despite folklore and owners who claim they have.

Inquisitiveness is universal in the animal kingdom. Scholars use curiosity to discover truths and natural laws. Curiosity is one of the building blocks for civilization and exploration.

Without the strong urge to know, there wouldn’t be inventions. No honorable mentions. No progress. No hope for the future. No discoveries.

But we don’t have to worry about that. Curiosity among all species comes with their survival packages, with one caveat:

Curiosity can cause grief, and sometimes kills.

It’s a wise animal that uses curiosity carefully.
