A Question’s Fragrance | Daily Quote (GR)

Richard-Feynman

“I would rather have questions that can’t be answered than the answers which can’t be questioned.”
Richard Feynman

In lieu of quoting Martin Luther King JR. since we’ve already published him earlier this week, I chose the above. Feynman, a theoretical physicist and Nobel prize winner, carried the acumen so many other great thinkers and artists have had over the centuries. That sometimes the fragrance of a question is more lovely than answer. This leaves room and cuts the finite out so that we don’t betray ourselves with systems and close circuits of thought, with worn out dogmas and narrow philosophies. It puts us outside the windows of our comfort, encouraging us to embrace the unknown rather than fear it.
