questions

A Quote by Peter Clothier on questions, answers, searching, and learning

Here's another thing I learned: never be satisfied with the first answer or with the easy one. The moment I think I have it is often the moment I most need to keep digging. Answers, it seems to me, are always provisional. It's the questions that keep moving me forward into the unknown--which is where the good stuff is to be found.

A Quote by Paul John Roach on answers, awareness, intuition, mystery, people, and questions

Some adopt a rigid system that answers all possible questions and so you don't have to think beyond its systems.  The other response is much more seemingly fragile but much more expansive, because it doesn't lay down a rigid framework.  It allows you to move within the mystery of it.  And that seems to be flowering right now.  I think people are more and more interested in embracing that because they've been through everything else.  It is a willingness to embrace mystery, a willingness to embrace not knowing, allowing that intuitive awareness to speak.

A Quote by Leonard Jacobson on questions, answers, enlightenment, spirituality, seeking, and life

It is far wiser to ask for a question than an answer. When you think you have all the answers, it simply means you have run out of questions.

A Quote by Cecelia Ahern on stories, theatre, ballet, belief, questions, why, and swan lake

We have nonbelievers, atheists, intellects, cynicists... all kinds of what-have-yous in here tonight, but all of them want to see that fella in the tights end up with that swan girl, so she'll be able to get out of that lake.  Only with the love of one who has never loved before can the spell be broken.  Why?  Who the hell cares why?  Do you think your woman with the feathers is going to ask why?  No.  She's just going to say thank you because then she can move on and wear nice dresses and go for walks instead of having to peck at soggy bread in a stinky lake every day for the rest of her life.

A Quote by Paulo Coelho on history, generations, progress, humanity, slavery, wage slaves, advancement, questions, and evolution

Thousands of years ago, weren't we capable of building enormous structures like the pyramids?  Weren't we capable of worshiping gods, weaving, making fire, finding lovers and wives, sending written messages?  Of course we were.  But although we've succeeded in replacing slaves with wage slaves, all the advances we've made have been in the field of science.  Human beings are still asking the same questions as their ancestors.  In short, they haven't evolved at all.

A Quote by Samuel Beckett on questions, curiosity, knowledge, thinking, and thought

And all these questions I ask myself. It is not in a spirit of curiosity. I cannot be silent. About myself I need know nothing. Here all is clear. No, all is not clear. But the discourse must go on. So one invents obscurities. Rhetoric.

Samuel Beckett (1906 - 1989)

A Quote by Richard Bach on questions, diamonds, lifetime, colors, and answers

The questions are diamonds you hold in the light.  Study a lifetime and you see different colors from the same jewel.  The same questions, asked again, bring you just the answers you need just the minute you need them. 

Richard Bach (1936 -)
