Curiosity...the fountain of youth

"Life must be lived and curiosity kept alive. One must never, for whatever reason, turn his back on life."
~Eleanor Roosevelt

     I just recently came across this quote and it struck me as a terrific philosophy for how I should live my life.  I love learning new things!  Some of the most interesting people I've ever met seem to have an insatiable curiosity.  My husband is like that!  If he wants to learn how to do something, he doesn't waste a minute before he is opening up a book, watching a Youtube video on it or finding an expert on it.  Many times, we have been out somewhere and he will see something that he thinks is interesting.  He has no problem talking to the person involved to find out more.  He has made some great friends this way and has learned something new. 
     I think that curiosity, and acting upon it, is the real fountain of youth.  It keeps you young, and it keeps your brain young!  Fifty years from now, I want to still have the same insatiable curiosity that I have now.  I want to have acted upon that curiosity over the next fifty years, and have an interesting life to look back on when I'm old. 
 What do you think?
