Asking questions

Filed under: Education,Stories — Subbaraman Iyer @ 2:10 pm

 A friend asked Isidor Rabi (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Isidor_Rabi) a Nobel Prize winner in Physics, 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 enquired, “Did you ask a good question today?”

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