"a journalist posed the question, ‘When did you become interested in the natural world?’ Attenborough simply replied, ‘When did you stop?’"

"Is a child a 'natural scientist'"? So asks Lizzie Crouch in a warm and reflective little essay:
Maybe it would be more helpful to think in terms of the fact everyone has a natural inquisitive side that can help a child grow into scientist? Then we could have children and adults of all ages reconnect with this inner child to help them connect with science?
