A Quote by Samuel Beckett on questions, curiosity, knowledge, thinking, and thought

And all these questions I ask myself. It is not in a spirit of curiosity. I cannot be silent. About myself I need know nothing. Here all is clear. No, all is not clear. But the discourse must go on. So one invents obscurities. Rhetoric.

Samuel Beckett (1906 - 1989)

Be at least as interested in what goes on inside you as what happens outside. If you get the inside right, the outside will fall into place.

A Quote by Kurt Vonnegut, Jr. on humanity, mortality, and curiosity

And Lot's wife, of course, was told not to look back where all those people and their homes had been. But she did look back, and I love her for that, because it was so human. So she was turned to a pillar of salt. So it goes.

A Quote by Anatole France on curiosity and people

Do not try to satisfy your vanity by teaching a great many things.  Awaken people's curiosity.  It is enough to open minds; do not overload them.  Put there just a spark.  If there is some good inflammable stuff, it will catch fire.

Anatole France (1844 - 1924)

A Quote by Sigurd Olson on awareness, curiosity, joy, and wonder

While we are born with curiosity and wonder and our early years full of the adventure they bring, I know such inherent joys are often lost.  I also know that, being deep within us, their latent glow can be fanned to flame again by awareness and an open mind.

A Quote by Eric Clapton on curiosity, journey, music, and religion

I have no problem with religion, and I grew up with a strong curiosity about spiritual matters, but my searching took me away from church and community worship to the internal journey.  Before my recovery began, I found my God in music and the arts, with writers like Hermann Hesse, and musicians like Muddy Waters, Howlin' Wolf, and Little Walter.

A Quote by Daniel Dennett on curiosity, beauty, humility, and complex

If you approach the world's complexities, both its glories and its horrors, with an attitude of humble curiosity, acknowledging that however deeply you have seen, you have only just scratched the surface, you will find worlds within worlds, beauties you could not heretofore imagine, and your own mundane preoccupations will shrink to proper size.

Daniel Dennett (1942 -)
