Question and Answer

On the brink of starting classes I have been thinking a lot about knowing and not knowing. I had this thought the other day that the person who asks a question that they dont know the answer to, but are humble and curious, really has a type of advantage over the wise person who already knows.

When you already know something there is a calmness that accompanies it, a sureness, an end, but the little flurry of adventure in the not-knowing, but wanting to, is a fleeting enjoyment that should be recognized, because it only emerges when its meeting its final moments.
