Curiosity – The Longevity Factor!

Being Curious does make a difference in life!

“The compensation for dying is that I will
learn all the things I was not able to
learn here on earth” ~ Alexander Imich, 2014

Meet Alexander Imich. Yesterday was his birthday he’s 111 years old. Officially the oldest man in the world. He attributes his long life to his never-ending curious nature, in spite of all the adversity he has lived through. Read the excellent interview by David Luke of the Daily Grail here.

But wait a minute, as of this writing there are 65 individuals older than him. And they’re all women! Which begs the question – Are we (women) more curious than our opposite gender counterparts, or are we just better at surviving?

Something to ponder.

Hope your week started out well for you. Thank you for stopping by. A prayer of well-being for the safety and safe return to their homes to all the kidnapped girls in Africa.
