Ask Questions

Our final theme for this series is Question.  Ask. Probe. Query. 

“Judge a man by his questions rather than by his answers.”

 “The scientist is not a person who gives the right answers, he's one who asks the right questions.”
Claude Lévi-Strauss

“The question is very understandable, but no one has found a satisfactory answer to it so far. Yes, why do they make still more gigantic planes, still heavier bombs and, at the same time, prefabricated houses for reconstruction? Why should millions be spent daily on the war and yet there's not a penny available for medical services, artists, or for poor people?

Why do some people have to starve, while there are surpluses rotting in other parts of the world? Oh,why are people so crazy?”
Anne Frank 

“He explained to me with great insistence that every question possessed a power that did not lie in the answer.”
Elie Wiesel,
