From: A Year of Faithful Questions

Naguib Mahfouz, Nobel Prize Winner, says you can tell a clever person by the answers given; but you can tell a person is wise by the questions asked. We reveal our wisdom in our questions and confirm that wisdom by our willingness to keep seeing for the true, the good and the beautiful. When individuals and institutions embrace questions, especially difficult ones, the potential exists for mature, lasting and meaningful growth. Success and maturity increasingly depend on having the right questions, not necessarily the right answers. (“A Year of Faithful Questions,” Rev. Mark Bozzuti-Jones)
