    There is something wrong with the questions that are supposed to be disposed of by answers. . . . People think that when you have answers you no longer have questions. And they want the greatest possible number of answers, the smallest number of questions. The ideal is to have no more questions. Then when you have no questions, you have “peace”.
    ~ Thomas Merton

    What we already know is in the past. What we have yet to discover is the future. Always make your questions bigger than your answers, and you'll keep drawing yourself into a bigger future with new possibilities.
    ~ Gary Ryan Blair

    Gratitude (76) I am grateful for questions, even when they don't seem to have immediate or definite answers . . .

      Nice compo.
      As a tutor, I am always struggling against the fact that a question can be perceived as just a request for an answer (in other words an intrusion that vanishes when you feed it something, anything ) rather than a trigger for thought.
      The extreme I had was a student who was so focused on grades that, in Philosophy, he would ask me how many points specific sentences would get him if he wrote them in his copy.

      You're absolutely right! We've been culturally trained, in so many ways, not to think about questions, but to manipulate and/or dispose of them -
