Extracted from the book "Wild Goose Chase: Reclaim the Adventure of Pursuing God" by Mike Batterson:
According to the research of Rolf Smith, children ask 125 probing questions per day. Adults, on the other hand, ask only half a dozen probing questions each day. That means somewhere between childhood and adulthood, we lose 119 questions per day…. Unfortunately, at some point in our lives, most of us stop asking questions and start making assumptions. We stop gazing at the stars and start staring at the ceiling.
