“He explained to me with great insistence that every question posessed a power that did not lie in the answer.”
― Elie Wiesel, Night
Questions have power. I think this quote is one of my favorites simply because it is fascinating.
Personally, I have always been a fan of the question. I ask questions all the time. (Just ask my Mom.) I sometimes get the inkling that most people left this continuous question-asking stage a long time ago. Like when they were two or three.
I missed the memo, apparently.
However, I will stand by my statement that questions are fascinating. They can help you get to know someone. Questions lead to conversation.They can help you understand people. They can make you smarter. Questions can make you wonder and wonder and wonder. Questions can have a sort of power over people. And, of course, my (sometimes) favorite part:
Questions can lead you to more questions.
And what would we do without more questions?
