A good scientist is a person in whom the childhood quality of perennial curiosity lingers on.
Once he gets an answer, he has other questions.
-Frederick Seitz


Curiosity is lying in wait for every secret.

I think, at a child's birth, if a mother could ask a fairy godmother
to endow it with the most useful gift, that gift should be curiosity.
Eleanor Roosevelt


We keep moving forward, opening new doors, and doing new things,
because we're curious and curiosity keeps leading us down new paths.
Walt Disney
