„Political questions, if you go back thousands of years, are ephemeral, not important. History is the same thing over and over again.“

—  Woody Allen American screenwriter, director, actor, comedian, author, playwright, and musician 1935

Interview in Der Spiegel, 2005-06-20 (as quoted by the New York Post) http://www.imdb.com/news/wenn/2005-06-29/
Contesto: As a filmmaker, I'm not interested in 9/11 [... ] it's too small, history overwhelms it. The history of the world is like: He kills me, I kill him, only with different cosmetics and different castings. So in 2001, some fanatics killed some Americans, and now some Americans are killing some Iraqis. And in my childhood, some Nazis killed Jews. And now, some Jewish people and some Palestinians are killing each other. Political questions, if you go back thousands of years, are ephemeral, not important. History is the same thing over and over again.

„In the development of intelligence nothing can be more "basic" than learning how to ask productive questions.“

—  Neil Postman American writer and academic 1931 - 2003

Language Education in a Knowledge Context (1980)
Contesto: In the development of intelligence nothing can be more "basic" than learning how to ask productive questions. Many years ago, in Teaching as a Subversive Activity, Charles Weingartner and I expressed our astonishment at the neglect shown in school toward this language art.... The "back to the basics" philosophers rarely mention it, and practicing teachers usually do not find room for it in their curriculums. …all our knowledge results from questions, which is another way of saying that question-asking is our most important intellectual tool… There are at present no reading tests anywhere that measure the ability of students to address probing questions to the particular texts they are reading... What students need to know are the rules of discourse which comprise the subject, and among the most central of such rules are those which govern what is and what is not a legitimate question.

„It's the questions we ask, the journey we take to get to where we are going that is more important than the actual answer.“

—  Charles de Lint author 1951

"Paperjack" in Dreams Underfoot : The Newford Collection (2003), p. 396
Contesto: It's the questions we ask, the journey we take to get to where we are going that is more important than the actual answer. It's good to have mysteries. It reminds us that there's more to the world than just making do and having a bit of fun.
