„You can play a role in the shaping of tomorrow’s world by asking yourself questions like, “What kind of world do I want to live in?” and “What does democracy mean to me?”“

There are many other options of organization for the future than those typically discussed today... In order to accomplish this task one must be free of bias and nationalism, and reflect those qualities in the design of policies. How would you approach that? This is a difficult project requiring input from many disciplines.

„Translation: Alas! So there is no escape from the question. Not for me, not for anyone! Then life is just breathing or running behind infinite number of questions? And then, what question is really? And what answer is too? This too a question. I observe the question mark carefully. And Eureka! I didn't know that my answer was encrypted and hidden in that symbol of a question mark. The dot below the curved stroke in a question mark symbolizes Zero as the question's answer itself, I never knew. Punctuation marks are so carefully crafted, I never knew!“

—  P. L. Deshpande Marathi writer, humourist, actor, dramatist 1919 - 2000

Original: (mr) झाले ! म्हणजे प्रश्नातून सुटका नाही. माझीच नव्हे, कुणाचीच नाही! मग जगणे म्हणजे नुसते श्वासोच्छ्वास घेणे की लक्ष लक्ष प्रश्नांच्या उत्तरांमागून धावणे? शेवटी प्रश्न म्हणजे तरी काय आणि उत्तर म्हणजे तरी काय? हादेखील एक प्रश्नच. मी त्या प्रश्नचिन्हाकडेच निरखून पाहतो. आणि युरेका! त्या प्रश्नचिन्हातच माझे उत्तर कसल्याशा सांकेतिक भाषेत दडवले आहे हे मला ठाऊक नव्हते. प्रश्नचिन्हाच्या त्या आकड्याखालीच शून्य हे त्याचे उत्तरही असते. विरामिचन्हे इतकी विचारपूर्वक बनवली असतील याची मला कल्पना नव्हती!

„…because the 9/11 Commission wants to ask us questions, that's why we're meeting. And I look forward to meeting with them and answering their questions. […] Because it's a good chance for both of us to answer questions that the 9/11 Commission is looking forward to asking us, and I'm looking forward to answering them.“

—  George W. Bush 43rd President of the United States 1946
