The greatest virtue of man is perhaps curiosity ~Anatole France~


Wisdom and Youth

"Mortality comes with the sad wisdom of age, when the sense of curiosity has withered."

-Graham Greene-

One year ago I stumbled upon this Afghan vendor in the Kabul market cooling his tea with a delicate breath. I reached for my camera only to be caught by his calm gaze and inquisitive eyes. I would like to think we were curious of the other.

As Graham Greene wisely stated, as long as we maintain a healthy, almost childish, curiosity of the world we maintain our youth. For when we quit being inquisitive and generally interested in what is happening around us, we forget why exactly we are here.
