Curiosity...

Some say that Curiosity killed the cat.

~I think the cat is stronger in the 
end because of it.~



Curiosity can often be considered 
an annoyance, a type of "nosy."

~I think this is how you stay on 
top of your game.~



~~~If you stop being Curious...
learning would come to a standstill.~~~

The Curious (much to other's dismay;)
often seem to get ahead in life.
And in most situations that isn't such 
a bad thing at all.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~


The important thing is not to stop questioning. Curiosity has its own reason for existing. One cannot help but be in awe when he contemplates the mysteries of eternity, of life, of the marvelous structure of reality. It is enough if one tries merely to comprehend a little of this mystery every day. Never lose a holy curiosity.
                                                    Albert Einstein

Very nicely done. I think that curiosity is one of the more endearing qualities of cats. Beautiful photos. That fawn is a beauty... as are the pooch and puss!

Love the photos. Curiosity is what keeps us thinking.

Clint said...

It is interesting that curiosity is a natural trait of youth. Little children are drawn to explore constantly.

Often, that seems to be lost as we age. Perhaps a secret to living longer and happier lives is to keep up our desire for knowledge.

Aww, that beach picture is so cute!

Hey, an Albert Einstein quote! Lovely photos as usual... I have to admit that I'm not a cat person myself, and that I've had to curb my curiosity in many situations... It seems safer that way...

Gail said...

MUITO BOM! Eu acredito que Deus criou o homem e deixou o manual de instrução, a “BÍBLIA SAGRADA!” A bíblia é a divina revelação da palavra de Deus e não produtos enlatados, eu costumo dizer que: “As pessoas precisam parar de comer tudo o que dão. E começar a questionar! ” Alguém escuta alguma coisa de alguém, e saem falando, sem questionar, sem saber se é verdade ou não. As pessoas precisam se perguntar! Será que a minha crença esta de acordo com a lei de Deus? Será que a religião que eu nasci sempre me falou a verdade? Quando uma pessoa morre pra onde ela vai? Ela volta? A bíblia apóia o homossexualismo? Quem não herdara o reino de Deus? O que devo saber sobre idolatria, imagens e escultura? O que devo saber sobre o único batismo? Será que tem uma seqüência para salvação? A quem eu devo me confessar, quem pode me perdoar? Religião salva alguém? Essas e outras perguntas e respostas em:

Você pode dizer, eu já sou salvo amém! Vamos atrás de quem não esta, “Se você quer se dar bem com o mundo seja hipócrita, mas se você quer se dar bem com Deu seja verdadeiro!” divulgue este site, porque: “Eis que vêm dias, diz o Senhor Jeová, em que enviarei fome sobre a terra, não fome de pão, nem sede de água, mas de ouvir as palavras do Senhor. E irão vagabundos de um mar até outro mar, e do norte até ao oriente; correrão por toda parte, buscando a palavra do Senhor, e não a acharão." ( Amós cap 8 ver 11 e 12 )Fale para outras pessoas, por que “O Senhor não retarda a sua promessa, ainda que alguns têm por tardia: mas é longânimo para convosco, não querendo que alguns se percam, senão que todos venham a arrepender-se.” (II Pedro cap. 3 ver 8) e “Que quer que todos os homens se salvem, e venham ao conhecimento da verdade. Porque há um só Deus, e um só Mediador entre Deus e os homens, Jesus Cristo o homem. (I A Timóteo cap 2 ver 5 e 6)
Seja sua bíblia, católica ou evangélica, aqui você vai tirar suas duvidas.

E conhecereis a verdade, e a verdade vos libertara (João cap 8 ver 32) Se você tiver coragem de perguntar, a bíblia terá coragem de responder!
