The weekly bon mot

"Try to cherish the questions themselves, like locked doors, like letters in an alien tongue."

Rainer Maria Rilke (1875-1926)

E.E. Cummings said something similar, directing the sentiment at people who ask questions rather than at questions themselves... "Always the beautiful answer who asks a more beautiful question."
