ASKING GOOD QUESTIONS

A friend once asked Isidor I. Rabi, a Nobel prize winner in science how he became a scientist. Rabi replied that every day after school his mother would talk to him about his school day. She wasn’t so much interested in what he had learned that day, but she always inquired, "Did you ask a good question today?"

Rabi said, "Asking good questions made me become a scientist."
