Research is not:
Words for the wise student:
"Those people who develop the ability to continuously acquire new and better forms of knowledge that they can apply to their work and to their lives will be the movers and shakers in our society for the indefinite future."
"Research is formalized curiosity. It is poking and prying with a purpose."
Zora Neale Hurston
