thought for today

Curiosity is one thing; wisdom is another. Maybe neither can fully cover the territory. Maybe one is meant to drive us, the other meant to beckon us.

Sidney Poitier, from his book The Measure of a Man

The youthful exuberance of curiosity partnered with a wisdom that can only come from experience guides me out of my comfort zone to take on a new project or learn a new skill. As I learn what I am and am not capable of I grow as a person. My desire is to always possess a healthy dose of human curiosity balanced out by heavenly wisdom.
