„It's the questions we can't answer that teach us the most. They teach us how to think. If you give a man an answer, all he gains is a little fact. But give him a question and he'll look for his own answers.“

„... because the 9/11 Commission wants to ask us questions, that's why we're meeting. And I look forward to meeting with them and answering their questions. [... ] Because it's a good chance for both of us to answer questions that the 9/11 Commission is looking forward to asking us, and I'm looking forward to answering them.“

—  George W. Bush 43rd President of the United States 1946

„An infinite question is often destroyed by finite answers. To define everything is to annihilate much that gives us laughter and joy.“

—  Madeleine L'Engle American writer 1918 - 2007
Context: Here we are living in a world of "identity crises," and most of us have no idea what an identity is. Half the problem is that an identity is something which must be understood intuitively, rather than in terms of provable fact. An infinite question is often destroyed by finite answers. To define everything is to annihilate much that gives us laughter and joy. Section 1.10 <!-- p. 30 -->
