Agatha Christie
Where do one's fears come from? Where do they shape themselves? Where do they hide before coming out into the open?
Aidan Chambers
Is it better to go with the flow or let the flow go?
Aidan Chambers
Maybe we should always start everything from the inside and work to the outside, and not from the outside to the inside. What d'you think?
Alexander McCall Smith
She had argued for a broad interpretation, which imposed a duty to answer questions truthfully, and not to hide facts which could give a different complexion to a matter, but on subsequent thought she had revised her position.Although she still believed that one should be frank in answers to questions, this duty arose only where there was an obligation, based on a reasonable expectation, to make a full disclosure. There was no duty to reveal everything in response to a casual question by one who had no right to the information.
Alfa H
It was in the words he didn't say... that I found all the answers to my questions.
Amit Ray
Mind knows the questions, soul knows the answers.
Anna B. Doe
But, is it more important to stay true to yourself, to what you believe in, or give it up for someone you care about?Lisa gives me a warm smile and her hand finds mine on the table.There is no right answer to that. She squeezes my hand hard. It depends on so many things. You are the one who has to choose, to find the balance between what you believe in and what you care about. It's a game with high risk
Anne Frank
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 Rice
Very few beings really seek knowledge in this world. Mortal or immortal, few really ask. On the contrary, they try to wring from the unknown the answers they have already shaped in their own minds -- justifications, confirmations, forms of consolation without which they can't go on. To really ask is to open the door to the whirlwind. The answer may annihilate the question and the questioner.
Brian Grazer
C.S. Lewis
When I lay these questions before God I get no answer. But a rather special sort of 'No answer.' It is not the locked door. It is more like a silent, certainly not uncompassionate, gaze. As though He shook His head not in refusal but waiving the question. Like, 'Peace, child; you don't understand.
Carolyn Custis James
It doesn't cause me to doubt God's existence, but it does force me to admit there's a lot about God I don't understand.
Charles Proteus Steinmetz
There are no foolish questions and no man becomes a fool until he has stopped asking questions.
Charles Sheffield
Remember, an easy question can have an easy answer. But a hard question must have a hard answer. And for the hardest questions of all, there may be no answer - except faith.
Chris Kraus
Female monsters take things as personally as they really are. They study facts. Even if rejection makes them feel like the girl who's not invited to the party, they have to understand the reasons why.... Every question, once it's formulated, is a paradigm, contains its own internal truth. We have to stop diverting ourselves with false questions. And I told Warren: I aim to be a female monster too.
Claude Lévi-Strauss
The scientist is not a person who gives the right answers, he's one who asks the right questions.
Colleen Hoover
Does he treat you with respect at all times? That's the first question. The second question is, if he is the exact same person twenty years from now that he is today, would you still want to marry him? And finally, does he inspire to be a better person? You find someone you can answer yes to all three, then you've found a good man.
Craig D. Lounsbrough
If you can get others to believe that your random guesses are actual answers, they'll never guess that you never understood the question in the first place.
Craig D. Lounsbrough
If God has the answer to every question, maybe my appreciation for God should be shaped more by the number of questions and less by the wisdom of the answers.
Criss Jami
Beyond all sciences, philosophies, theologies, and histories, a child's relentless inquiry is truly all it takes to remind us that we don't know as much as we think we know.
Criss Jami
People love answers, but only as long as they are the ones who came up with them.
Criss Jami
Friends ask you questions; enemies question you.
Criss Jami
I'd rather strive for the kind of interview where instead of me asking to introduce myself to society, society asks me to introduce myself to society.
Criss Jami
Doubt is a question mark; faith is an exclamation point. The most compelling, believable, realistic stories have included them both.
Criss Jami
Rather than swallowing our pride and simply asking what we do not know, we choose to fill in the blanks ourselves and later become humbled. Wisdom was often, in its youth, proven foolish, and ones humiliated were meant to become wise.
Cristina Marrero
To question the world around us and all its complexities is not blasphamy, but simply using the mind God gave us for its intended purpous. God is an artist. Artist do not create to have someone just glance and say That is pretty. Artist want viewers to look closer, deeper--to really see what they have created--not just glance.
Dani Shapiro
It wasn't so much that I was in search of answers. In fact, I was wary of the whole idea of answers. I wanted to climb all the way inside of the questions and see what was there.
Darnell Lamont Walker
I don't trust people without books or questions.
David Brin
...where were answers to the truly deep questions? Religion promised those, though always in vague terms, while retreating from one line in the sand to the next. Don't look past this boundary, they told Galileo, then Hutton, Darwin, Von Neumann, and Crick, always retreating with great dignity before the latest scientific advance, then drawing the next holy perimeter at the shadowy rim of knowledge.
Dee Williams
The library made me feel safe, as if every question had an answer and there was nothing to be afraid of, as long as I could sort through another volume.
Dejan Stojanovic
Pose your questions to people and you will get countless useless answers.
E.A. Bucchianeri
To be, or not to be: what a question!
Francis A. Schaeffer
The ancients were afraid that if they went to the end of the earth they would fall off and be consumed by dragons. But once we understand that Christianity is true to what is there, true to the ultimate environment - the infinite, personal God who is really there - then our minds are freed. We can pursue any question and can be sure that we will not fall off the end of the earth.
Friedrich Nietzsche
He who has a why to live for can bear almost any how.
Howard Zinn
History can come in handy. If you were born yesterday, with no knowledge of the past, you might easily accept whatever the government tells you. But knowing a bit of history--while it would not absolutely prove the government was lying in a given instance--might make you skeptical, lead you to ask questions, make it more likely that you would find out the truth.
Israelmore Ayivor
To become a better you, keep asking curious questions about yourself. If you lose, ask why?; if you win, ask why not?
Israelmore Ayivor
Leaders are solutions conscious. They don't complain. You would find them repeating this common question; how will it be done, and by who?
Israelmore Ayivor
This is an everyday question and you must take note of it always. When you wake up, it should be among your number one thoughts. What are you doing for others?
Israelmore Ayivor
Leaders don't call unhappy followers ungrateful people. They see them as lesson teachers. They find out why they are unhappy; perhaps it could be as a result of their attitudes. That informs them to change!
Israelmore Ayivor
You are loaded with answers; don't live your entire life asking questions.
Israelmore Ayivor
If you have only answers and no questions, chances are high that you will never know new things.
Israelmore Ayivor
One common thing about great achievers is that, they keep asking useful questions every day. They ask questions like; What do I want and what do I need to do to get it?
Israelmore Ayivor
Leaders' major question is why. If they lose, they ask why. If they win, they ask why. Their whys weave their wonders.
J.D. Salinger
But I was afraid of the questions (much more than the accusations) you might both put to me.
J.D. Stroube
Life is filled with unanswered questions, but it is the courage to seek those answers that continues to give meaning to life. You can spend your life wallowing in despair, wondering why you were the one who was led towards the road strewn with pain, or you can be grateful that you are strong enough to survive it.
James C. Dobson
As I indicated in an earlier chapter, it is so important to pause and think through some of these basic issues while you are young, before the pressures of job and family become distracting. Everyone must deal with the eternal questions sooner or later. You will benefit, I think, from doing that work now. As I said earlier, whether you are an atheist, a Muslim, a Buddhist, a Jew, a New Ager, an agnostic, or a Christian, the questions confronting the human family are the same. Only the answers will differ.
Jeff VanderMeer
I am just the biologist; I don't require any of this to have a deeper meaning. I am aware that all of this speculation is incomplete, inexact, inaccurate, useless. If I don't have real answers, it is because we still don't know what questions to ask. Our instruments are useless, our methodology broken, our motivations selfish.
Jenim Dibie
2a.m and a ceiling stained with question marks.
Jiddu Krishnamurti
To ask the 'right' question is far more important than to receive the answer. The solution of a problem lies in the understanding of the problem; the answer is not outside the problem, it is in the problem.
José Saramago
Acontece isto muitas vezes, não fazemos as perguntas porque não estávamos preparados para ouvir as respostas, ou por termos, simplesmente, medo delas.
Jostein Gaarder
Socrates himself said, 'One thing only I know, and this is that I know nothing.' Remember this statement, because it is an admission that is rare, even among philosophers. Moreover, it can be so dangerous to say in public that it can cost you your life. The most subversive people are those who ask questions. Giving answers is not nearly as threatening. Any one question can be more explosive than a thousand answers.
Kaitlin Hollon
Always ask the questions you want to, life is too short to know if you'll get a second chance to ask , and afterlife is probably too long to wonder what the answer may be.
Kamand Kojouri
The greatest thinkers have attempted to find who we are where we come from and why we are here but the greatest enigmas to me are how your hair is a lasso that captures the stars how your eyes are lakes that drown my doubts and how your skin is the sun bursting all at once. If I knew these answers I'd know everything for you alone contain the entire universe.
Kamand Kojouri
You'll only know the answers once you love.
Khadija Rupa
Do you love me enough that I am allowed to be damaged? Do you love me enough that I am allowed to be weak in some places?

Keep questioning! With time, you will find answers to your questions.
Leo Babauta
At the end of the day, the questions we ask of ourselves determine the type of people that we will become.
Mandy Hale
The more you go with the flow of life and surrender the outcome to God, and the less you seek constant clarity, the more you will find that fabulous things start to show up in your life.
Manoj Arora
Doubts are good. Confusion is excellent. Questions are awesome.All these are attempts to expand the wisdom of mind.
Margo T. Rose
That thing you thought you'd doYou start to think you can't;You always say tomorrow,But you haven't got a plan.Everyone's asking questions,And all you do is dodge.That career that you'd imaginedWas only a mirage.The older that you get,The smaller that you feel;You forget what's only in your head,And what is really real.Sometimes people make it;They become who they meant to be.But most of the time,Dreamers only dream.
Michael Thomas Ford
I think he just loved being with the bears because they didn't make him feel bad. I get it too. When he was with the bears, they didn't care that he was kind of weird, or that he'd gotten into trouble for drinking too much and using drugs(which apparently he did a lot of). They didn't ask him a bunch of stupid questions about how he felt, or why he did what he did. They just let him be who he was.
Mitch Albom
Have you found someone to share your heart with? Are you giving to your community? Are you at peace with yourself? Are you trying to be as human as you can be?
Molly Harper
Are you going to answer my questions, or do I have to whack you with a stick until delicious candy surprises fall out?
Molly Harper
Wait, is this a nice-ish way of telling me we had sex and I was lousy? That's how you can tell I'm inexperienced? Because, if so, that's just rude. And what were you doing at Shenanigans? And how did you find me on the road?Gabriel looked wounded. To answer your questions in order: The only body fluid I exchanged with you is blood--That's very comforting, thank you.
Murad S. Shah
The questions you don't ask are just as important as you do. The questions you ask show what you understand, and ones you don't show what you know.
Nema Al-Araby
Questions that will free you might have answers that will imprison you again.
Nikki Rowe
My instinct is saying its not over, but your adamant it is, what do I trust?
Nikki Rowe
When a woman is full of cockiness, I wonder what makes her so insecure. When a man is full of ego, I wonder what he's holding onto.
Octavia E. Butler
Was an eternity of absolute ease just another name for hell?
Oliver Goldsmith
Ask me no questions, and I'll tell you no fibs.
Pamela Dean
It's worse than treachery. He's using force. Is that worse than guile?
Paul Lockhart
... That little narrative is an example of the mathematician's art: asking simple and elegant questions about our imaginary creations, and crafting satisfying and beautiful explanations. There is really nothing else quite like this realm of pure idea; it's fascinating, it's fun, and it's free!
Paul Veyne
Ce qui m'intéressait était l'érudition : elle est un jeu de vérité amusant, qui découvre, déchiffre, explique ou explicite l'inconnu ou le méconnu ; elle est donc prête à croire que toute vérité reçue a des chances d'être fausse, au risque de déplaire, de mettre l'opinion au défi.
Percy Williams Bridgman
Not only are there meaningless questions, but many of the problems with which the human intellect has tortured itself turn out to be only 'pseudo problems,' because they can be formulated only in terms of questions which are meaningless. Many of the traditional problems of philosophy, of religion, or of ethics, are of this character. Consider, for example, the problem of the freedom of the will. You maintain that you are free to take either the right- or the left-hand fork in the road. I defy you to set up a single objective criterion by which you can prove after you have made the turn that you might have made the other. The problem has no meaning in the sphere of objective activity; it only relates to my personal subjective feelings while making the decision.
Peter Wohlleben
So many questions remain unanswered. Perhaps we are poorer for having lost a possible explanation or richer for having gained a mystery. But aren't both possibilities equally intriguing?
Rainer Maria Rilke
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.
Richard Dawkins
After sleeping through a hundred million centuries we have finally opened our eyes on a sumptuous planet, sparkling with color, bountiful with life. Within decades we must close our eyes again. Isn't it a noble, an enlightened way of spending our brief time in the sun, to work at understanding the universe and how we have come to wake up in it? This is how I answer when I am asked

Richie Norton
Two questions I'm pondering:1. If money didn't exist, would you still chase your dreams?2. If money didn't exist, would you still keep your job?If the answer is YES to both, you're on track. If the answer is NO to either, what needs to change?
Rob Bell
Some communities don't permit open, honest inquiry about the things that matter most. Lots of people have voiced a concern, expressed a doubt, or raised a question, only to be told by their family, church, friends, or tribe: We don't discuss those things here.I believe the discussion itself is divine. Abraham does his best to bargain with God, most of the book of Job consists of arguments by Job and his friends about the deepest questions of human suffering, God is practically on trial in the book of Lamentations, and Jesus responds to almost every question he's asked with...a question.
If your children asked you about your honesty with God, Let them look at the pictures with the person you married and was the reason they're alive...and they will understand.
Rudolf Jerome Ragay
Spend time with your kids and try to answer all their questions, it will make your life challenging.

When people seem angry, sometimes they are simply upset and hurting. Asking the right questions helps them to work through it.

I don't get it,' Caroline said, bemused. 'She's the only one with wings. Why is that?'There were so many questions in life. You couldn't ever have all the answers. But I knew this one.It's so she can fly,' I said. Then I started to run.

Most misunderstandings in the world could be avoided if people would simply take the time to ask, What else could this mean?
Shannon L. Alder
What if you were wrong? What if everything you ever believed was a lie? What if you missed your opportunity because you didn't know your worth? What if you settled on familiar, but God was trying to give you something better? What if you decided not to go backwards, but forward? What if doing what you have never done before was the answer to everything that didn't make sense? What if the answer wasn't to be found in words, but in action? What if you found the courage to do what you really wanted to do and doing it changed your whole life?
Shannon L. Alder
Never give up on someone. Sometimes the answers you are looking for are the same answers another person is looking for. Two people searching together are always better than one person alone.
Steve Maraboli
An empowered life begins with serious personal questions about oneself. Those answers bare the seeds of success.

Suzy Kassem
We awaken by asking the right questions.
Suzy Kassem
We awaken by asking the right questions. We awaken when we see knowledge being spread that goes against our own personal experiences. We awaken when we see popular opinion being wrong but accepted as being right, and what is right being pushed as being wrong. We awaken by seeking answers in corners that are not popular. And we awaken by turning on the light inside when everything outside feels dark.
Tamara Stamenkovic
Do you think your soul is more beautiful than your body?
Thomas H. Cook
He looked at me intently, from what seemed behind the veil of a grave experience. Then slowly and prophetically, he said the scariest thing I'd ever heard: Because the answer to a heartfelt question, Jack, will always break your heart.
Tim Willocks
Her eyes were of different colors, the left as brown as autumn, the right as gray as Atlantic wind. Both seemed alive with questions that would never be voiced, as if no words yet existed with which to frame them. She was nineteen years old, or thereabouts; her exact age was unknown. Her face was as fresh as an apple and as delicate as blossom, but a marked depression in the bones beneath her left eye gave her features a disturbing asymmetry. Her mouth never curved into a smile. God, it seemed, had withheld that possibility, as surely as from a blind man the power of sight. He had withheld much else. Amparo was touched
Tom Robbins
Albert Camus wrote that the only serious question is whether to kill yourself or not.Tom Robbins wrote that the only serious question is whether time has a beginning and an end.Camus clearly got up on the wrong side of bed, and Robbins must have forgotten to set the alarm.There is only one serious question. And that is: Who knows how to make love stay?Answer me that and I will tell you whether or not to kill yourself.
