A Quote by Paulo Coelho on questions, asking, answers, universe, life, unknown, and mystery

I believe everything is one thing only. That said, there are some questions in my life that I don’t know.. I’ve stopped asking. At the very beginning of my life, I wanted to have answers for everything. And now I respect the fact that I can’t have answers for everything.

A Quote by Muhammad Asad on answers, questions, god, secrets, and openness

...all the answers are but waiting for us while we, poor fools, ask questions and wait for the secrets of God to open themselves up to us: when they, all the while, are waiting for us to open ourselves up to them...

A Quote by Nikos Kazantzakis on answers, earth, questions, stars, and trees

With the passage of days in this godly isolation [desert], my heart grew calm.  It seemed to fill with answers. I did not ask questions any more; I was certain.  Everything - where we came from, where we are going, what our purpose is on earth - struck me as extremely sure and simple in this God-trodden isolation.  Little by little my blood took on the godly rhythm.  Matins, Divine Liturgy, vespers, psalmodies, the sun rising in the morning and setting in the evening, the constellations suspended like chandeliers each night over the monastery: all came and went, came and went in obedience to eternal laws, and drew the blood of man into the same placid rhythm.  I saw the world as a tree, a gigantic poplar, and myself as a green leaf clinging to a branch with my slender stalk.  When God's wind blew, I hopped and danced, together with the entire tree.

A Quote by Carl Gustav Jung on ancestors, answers, life, questions, and soul

Moreover, my ancestors' souls are sustained by the atmosphere of the house, since I answer for them the questions that their lives once left behind.  I carve out rough answers as best I can.  I have even drawn them on the walls.  It is as if a silent, greater family, stretching down the centuries, were peopling the house.

Carl Jung (1875 - 1961)

A Quote by Barack Obama on answers, doubt, dream, life, people, place, possibility, questions, time, and wonder

If there is anyone out there who still doubts that America is a place where all things are possible, who still wonders if the dream of our Founders is alive in our time, who still questions the power of our democracy, tonight is your answer.

It's the answer told by lines that stretched around schools and churches in numbers this nation has never seen; by people who waited three hours and four hours, many for the very first time in their lives, because they believed that this time must be different, that their voice could be that difference.

We're searching for the answers so we can destroy them and dream up better questions.

A Quote by A. Bartlett Giamatti on answers and mind

There are many who lust for the simple answers of doctrine or decree.  They are on the Left and Right.  They are not confined to a single part of the society.  They are terrorists of the mind.

A Quote by Jacob Bronowski on answers, questions, and science

That is the essence of science: ask an impertinent question, and you are on the way to a pertinent answer.
