A Quote by C.S. Lewis on mortal, god, and questions

Can a mortal ask questions which God finds unanswerable? Quite easily, I should think. All nonsense questions are unanswerable.

C.S. Lewis

A Quote by William Wordsworth on fear, apprehension, questions, cruel, and hateful

My apprehensions come in crowds;/ I dread the rustling of the grass;/ The very shadows of the crowds/ Have power to shake me as they pass:/ I question things and do not find/ One that will answer to my mind;/ And all the world appears unkind.

William Wordsworth (1770 - 1850)

A Quote by Larry Brilliant on spirituality, religion, politics, questions, and values

If you don't put the spiritual and religious dimension into our political conversation, you won't be asking the really big and important question. If you don't bring in values and religion, you'll be asking superficial questions. What is life all about? What is our relationship to God? These are the important questions. What is our obligation to one another and community? If we don't ask those questions, the residual questions that we're asking aren't as interesting.

A Quote by Sue Monk Kidd on you--individual fire, questions, and creativity

The only way I have ever understood, broken free, emerged, healed, forgiven, flourished, and grown powerful is by asking the hardest questions and then living into the answers through opening up to my own terror and transmuting it into creativity. I have gotten nowhere by retreating into hand-me-down sureties or resisting the tensions that truth ignited.

A Quote by Chuang Chou, a.k.a. Chuang Tzu, Chuang Tse Chuang on tao, reality, and questions

Although things seem to be sometimes going up and sometimes descending, sometimes slipping away, nevertheless there is a reality, the same today as in the past. It does not change, for nothing can affect it. Could we not say it is one great harmony? So why shouldn't we ask about it...

Chuang Tzu (c.360 BC - c. 275 BC)

A Quote by Kenneth Smith on philosophy, questions, and self-mastery

Questions, as I long ago tried to teach my students, are like cellular acids that dissolve the glue holding our preconceptions, prejudices, presuppositions, etc. together in customary clumps. All the more is this dissolution a liability in societies that lack any aristic higher structure, any form of critical authority or penetrating logic that is proof against merely slavish or conventionalist taking-for-granted and also against sophist-cynical-nihilist disillusionment. One cannot see and cannot say what is what without then initiating in that bourgeois consensus a cascade of disillusionment, a process of abolishing one absurdity after another. Just the ability to see the meanings of one's own language, what it actually implies and signifies, is already the first step in a process of ultimate subversion. The scales are falling from one's eyes, one doesn't need someone else to lead one around by the hand anymore like a child. --The end of tutelage, the beginning of appropriating one's mind for one's own disciplined use: for a certain, horrified-by-everything kind of slavish personality, this independence or self-responsibility is the most horrific prospect of all.

A Quote by R. Buckminster Fuller on sacred geometry, humanity, integrity, people, questions, and universe

Whether humanity is to comprehensively prosper...depends entirely on the integrity of the human individuals and not on the political and economic systems.  The cosmic question has been asked: are humans worthwhile to universe invention?"

R. Buckminster Fuller (1895 - 1983)
