„Why do people always expect authors to answer questions? I am an author because I want to ask questions. If I had answers, I'd be a politician.“

—  Eugéne Ionesco, As quoted in The Writer's Quotation Book : A Literary Companion (1980) by James Charlton, p. 44

„... 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
From "President Addresses the Nation in Prime Time Press Conference" http://georgewbush-whitehouse.archives.gov/news/releases/2004/04/20040413-20.html, Washington, D.C., on why the President and the Vice President insisted on appearing together before the 9/11 Commission, rather than separately.

„For me there are no answers, only questions, and I am grateful that the questions go on and on.“

—  P. L. Travers Australian-British novelist, actress and journalist 1899 - 1996
Context: For me there are no answers, only questions, and I am grateful that the questions go on and on. I don't look for an answer, because I don't think there is one. I'm very glad to be the bearer of a question.

„I am more content with questions than answers.“

—  Roger Ebert American film critic, author, journalist, and TV presenter 1942 - 2013
Context: Quantum theory is now discussing instantaneous connections between two entangled quantum objects such as electrons. This phenomenon has been observed in laboratory experiments and scientists believe they have proven it takes place. They’re not talking about faster than the speed of light. Speed has nothing to do with it. The entangled objects somehow communicate instantaneously at a distance. If that is true, distance has no meaning. Light-years have no meaning. Space has no meaning. In a sense, the entangled objects are not even communicating. They are the same thing. At the “quantum level” (and I don’t know what that means), everything may be actually or theoretically linked. All is one. Sun, moon, stars, rain, you, me, everything. All one. If this is so, then Buddhism must have been a quantum theory all along. No, I am not a Buddhist. I am not a believer, not an atheist, not an agnostic. I am more content with questions than answers. Ch. 54 : How I Believe In God
