It is better to know some of the questions than all of the answers.
James Thurber quotes
Say what you will about the sweet miracle of unquestioning faith, I consider a capacity for it terrifying and absolutely vile!
Kurt Vonnegut, Jr. quotes
It is not every question which deserves an answer.
Publilius Syrus quotes
Live your questions now, and perhaps even without knowing it, you will live along some distant day into your answers.
Rainer Maria Rilke quotes
If a man loves the labour of his trade, apart from any question of success or fame, the gods have called him.
Robert Louis Stevenson quotes
I know of no more encouraging fact than the unquestionable ability of man to elevate his life by conscious endeavor.
Henry David Thoreau quotes
I can speak of my own criterion for judging whether or not a book is good or bad. I ask of it a single question, From how deep and true an impulse did it spring? Was it written merely to shock? Only to make money? Or was it written to create something more perfect and more lasting than the life experience from which it came?
Lawrence Clark Powell quotes
Unquestionably, there is progress. The average American now pays out twice as much in taxes as he formerly got in wages.
Henry Louis Mencken quotes
How is one to live a moral and compassionate existence when one is fully aware of the blood, the horror inherent in life, when one finds darkness not only in one's culture but within oneself? If there is a stage at which an individual life becomes truly adult, it must be when one grasps the irony in its unfolding and accepts responsibility for a life lived in the midst of such paradox. One must live in the middle of contradiction, because if all contradiction were eliminated at once life would collapse. There are simply no answers to some of the great pressing questions. You continue to live them out, making your life a worthy expression of leaning into the light.
Of all the people you will know in a lifetime, you are the only one you will never leave or loose. To the questions of your life you are the only answer. To the problems in your life you are the only solution
