READ MORE, ASK MORE, LEARN MORE…ABOUT EVERYTHING. NOT BECAUSE WE WILL BE TESTED ON SUBJECT MATTERS, OR THAT WE WILL BECOME AN EXPERTS, OR BECAUSE WE WILL NEED TO APPLY THE INFORMATION. IT’S IN ORDER FOR US TO ASK MORE INTELLIGENT AND PENETRATING QUESTIONS, IN ORDER TO STIMULATE THOUGHT, STRENGTHEN RIGOROUS THINKING PROCESSES, AND IN ORDER TO DEVELOP RICHER IMAGINATIONS AND DEEPER INSIGHTS AND CONNECTIONS. MAYBE, JUST AS IMPORTANTLY, IT IS IN ORDER TO KEEP WONDER ALIVE AND FOR US NOT TO BE SO EASILY FOOLED, OR FOR US TO BECOME FOOLS.
