Chapter 4, Page 26, Book 19



A prudent question is one half of wisdom.

Francis Bacon

April 26 -There is no such thing as a foolish question


It is better to know some of the questions than to know all of the answers.

James Thurber

Asking questions can feel a little scary at times.  We hat to risk playing the fool, But questioning does help us to learn.  By asking who, what, when and where we learn the important things in life.  

I believe there is no such thing as a stupid question.  If we don’t ask, we’ll never know the answer. Just because one person may know less than others they shouldn’t be afraid to ask. It’s much better than pretending to know the answer. So ask anyway!

The older I grow, the more questions I have.  Life is constantly changing and giving me more and more to question.

I remember the questions my children used to ask, it seemed I could never give them enough answers.  It was a constant, but why mom?  Their little minds were like sponges and soaked up all the answers.

They weren’t going to learn unless I gave them answers to their questions and sometimes it was hard to find the right answer. 

Every question is a desire to understand this world.  Asking questions is very often the best way to get ahead.  Growth starts with asking questions.


Why and how are two words so important that they cannot be too often used.

Napoleon Bonapart

If you don't ask, you'll never know the answer.

I agree, there is no such thing as a stupid question. That is how we learn by asking questions, even if we have to ask them over and over again :)

Ah! Little ones can sure pose some tough questions. Inquiring children (I think) will grow to be inquiring adults. Sometimes, from personal experience, it's been tough. I'm remembering when we moved from a small town in West Texas to Tampa. 1986 I think it was. My new boss handed me some papers and asked me to go upstairs to fax. I had NO IDEA was a fax was or what it looked like. No doubt the girl who worked there thought I'd just fallen off the turnip truck.

I have to say this - I ask a ton of questions - it is the only way you can learn!

questions tell us things we need to know. "It is better to know some of the questions than to know all of the answers."
