A Quote by John Tukey on questions, answers, and precision

Far better an approximate answer to the right question, which is often vague, than an exact answer to the wrong question, which can always be made precise.

A Quote by R. H. Blyth on questions, answers, and essential

What is essential is not the answer but the questions; the answers indeed are the death of the life that is in the questions.

A Quote by Richard David Bach on questions, life, direction, and purpose

The simplest questions are the most profound.

    Where were you born?
    Where is your home?
    Where are you going?
    What are you doing?

Think about these once in awhile, and watch your answers change.

Richard Bach (1936 -)

A Quote by Ken Kesey on mystery, answers, garden, psychedelics, strange, and questions

The answer is never the answer.  What's really interesting is the mystery.  If you seek the mystery instead of the answer, you'll always be seeking.  I've never seen anybody really find the answer -- they think they have, so they stop thinking.  But the job is to seek mystery, evoke mystery, plant a garden in which strange plants grow and mysteries bloom.  The need for mystery is greater than the need for an answer.

Ken Kesey (1935 -)

A Quote by Anthony De Mello on questions, answers, light, truth, and spirit


You have within yourself the answer to every question you propose -- if you only knew how to look for it.  In the Land of the spirit, you cannot walk by the light of someone else's lamp.  You want to borrow mine.  I'd rather teach you how to make your own.

Anthony De Mello

A Quote by Rainer Maria Rilke on questions, answers, life, patience, and unsolved

Have patience with everything that remains unsolved in your heart. Try to love the questions themselves, like locked rooms and like books written in a foreign language. Do not now look for the answers. They cannot now be given to you because you could not live them. It is a question of experiencing everything. At present you need to live the question. Perhaps you will gradually, without even noticing it, find yourself experiencing the answer, some distant day.

Rainer Maria Rilke (1875 - 1926)
