Questions Define a Man, According to Voltaire
October 10, 2015 8:26pm CST
I found a quote while browsing Instagram. Voltaire said to judge a man by his questions and not by his answers. Hm... I've never thought of that. I always thought how people answer and talk are more important than their questions. But then again it is indeed the right questions that produce results and solutions. Then I found another quote after searching for the above... Albert Einstein said if he had an hour to solve a problem and his life depended on it, he would use the fifty five minutes to think of the proper questions to have a solution in less than 5 minutes. Isn't that something? The visuals that come to mind is that of a ticking time bomb in front of someone and that person sitting there unmoving, thinking which wire to cut. Such an enlightening Sunday for me. Do you also think that questions are better than answers? Can you really learn more about someone based on the questions they ask instead of the things they say? But what then of the saying actions speak louder than words?
