Be curious always! For knowledge will not acquire you; you must acquire it."

~Sudie Back

An inquisitive mind expands and discerns
For one who asks no questions never learns
The pathway to knowledge is paved with queries and uncertainties
An inquiring mind probes these doubts and obscurities
This is why one with an ardent intellect expands and grows
But one that lies dormant never learns or knows

So true, Lew, so true! I have people ask me all the time if I have multiple sclerosis or cerebral palsy because I walk with crutches. I tell them I have degenerative arthritis. Or kids will ask me if I broke my arm. LOL I am not afraid to answer people's questions, as long as they aren't rude about it. Otherwise, how are they gonna know?? I also tell parents to let their kids ask if they tell their kids to hush; otherwise, they will continue to be curious or afraid of people who are disabled, which is sad!

(((HUGS))) and much love, your friend in Tx., Karen Lynn. :D

LOVE the graphic!
