Many years back, William Arthur Ward coined a famous quotation - “Curiosity is the
wick in the candle of learning.” Quite amazing the quote that it is, Ward was
absolutely right in his observation. Curiosity is the mother to all great inventions and
discoveries of the past. Without the power of “curiosity”, no great deeds would
have been possible. The degree of curiosity is probably the highest among growing and young
children. They are greatly curious about things and events that occur around them throughout
For a child, who is amazingly curious, the world around him or her offers infinite numbers
of possibilities and options. For them, the entire animal kingdom could be capable of
speaking to each other, flowers can become rainbows of vibrant colours and rainbows could
become big cradles in which they can sleep, sing and make merry! Nature can be a big tool
for children to raise the levels of curiosity and eventual learning. All the best!
Thought for today:
"The first and simplest emotion which we discover in the human mind, is curiosity."
