Curiousity breeds wisdom

I ran into this theme the other day and decided to explore it further. What am I curious about while seeking wisdom?

I asked several friends this question and got these responses. 1. Everything. 2. The other about work life balance and how to find the time for each. My own curiousity is about the difference between existing and living. Which by the way is #8 on the site 43 things http://www.43things.com/things/view/1295/to-live-instead-of-exist.

Well, first I had to define the terms for myself of curiousity, living, and existence. Curiousity is the “tendency to ask question, investigate or explore.” I ended at a final term of existentialism.: the uniqueness of each human existence in freely making its self-defining choices. We choose which questions that we are curious about.

Now my question has become from Hamlet “To be or not to be, that is the question.” I guess I need to read Hamlet to see what answers Shakespeare provides. But first, finish Mailer’s the Naked and the Dead.
