Questions Bring Curiosity

“To maintain the state of doubt and to carry on systematic and protracted inquiry — these are the essentials of thinking.” — John Dewey, How We Think

“I was made acutely aware how far superior an education that stresses independent action and personal responsibility is to one that relies on drill, external authority and ambition.”

“Do not now seek the answers, which cannot be given you because you would not be able to live them. And the point is, to live everything. Live the questions now. Perhaps you will then gradually, without noticing it, live along some distant day into the answer.”

Questions Bring Customization

“It is not the answer that enlightens, but the question.” — Eugene Ionesco

Questions Bring Learning

“Answers mirror the questions they rise, or fall, to meet.” — Krista Tippett

“The scientist has a lot of experience with ignorance and doubt and uncertainty, and this experience is of very great importance, I think. When a scientist doesn’t know the answer to a problem, he is ignorant. When he has a hunch as to what the result is, he is uncertain. And when he is pretty darn sure of what the result is going to be, he is in some doubt. We have found it of paramount importance that in order to progress we must recognize the ignorance and leave room for doubt. Scientific knowledge is a body of statements of varying degrees of certainty– some most unsure, some nearly sure, none absolutely certain.”

Question. Connect. Develop.

“I’d rather have questions that can’t be answered than answers that can’t be questioned.” — Richard Feynman
