The answer

Isn’t what we need.

Sure, it is what we are programmed by school to think we need.

A better question is what we could choose to be searching for.

Asking questions is the best way to learn, the best way to engage other people, it’s the fastest way to better understanding and it allows time for reflection and thought before acting.

Always having ‘the answer’ leads to talking instead of listening.

An answer

It’s useful to have an answer in an exam or if you’re on a game show.

Other than that, it’s better to have more questions than answer.

Then it’s best for us to listen.

There is no shame in not knowing something. There is more shame in not bothering to find out what others know.

The more we ask the more we learn and learning and knowledge avoids judgements based on nothing much.
