A Quote by Christopher Pike on wonder, joy, bliss, silence, knowledge, and understanding

There is a difference between a question and a wonder.  I would prefer to answer only questions that will be useful to you.  A child looks up at the starry sky at night and wonders.  He is filled with the joy of the mystery of creation.  Why should I explain everything to you and take away that joy?  I will not.  The purpose of my words is to create silence, to create joy.  I am not here to stuff your head full of knowledge.  A child starts out innocent.  You ask him something and he says, "I don't know."  Then that child grows up and thinks he knows everything.  I'll teach you something, both of you.  I'll teach you to say, "I don't know," and be glad.  That is true knowledge.
