„I wish that we worried more about asking the right questions instead of being so hung up on finding answers.“

—  Madeleine L'Engle American writer 1918 - 2007
Context: I wish that we worried more about asking the right questions instead of being so hung up on finding answers. I don't need to know the difference between a children's book and an adult one; it's the questions that have come from thinking about it that are important. I wish we'd stop finding answers for everything. One of the reasons my generation has mucked up the world to such an extent is our loss of the sense of the mysterious. Section 4.8 <!-- p. 208 -->
