A dream is the mind's way of answering a question it hasn't yet figured out how to ask.
-- David Duchovny
A man may fulfill the object of his existence by asking a question he cannot answer, and attempting a task he cannot achieve.
-- Oliver Wendall Holmes
A path is only a path, and there is no affront, to oneself or to others, in dropping it if that is what your heart tells you. Look at every path closely and deliberately. Try it as many times as you think necessary. Then ask yourself alone, one question. Does this path have a heart? If it does, the path is good; if it doesn't it is of no use.
-- Carlos Castaneda
An unusual child is one who asks questions that his parents can answer.
Anger blows out the lamp of the mind. In the examination of a great and important question, everyone should be serene, slow-pulsed and calm.
-- Robert G. Ingersoll

From the moment absurdity is recognized, it becomes a passion, the most harrowing of all. But whether or not one can live with one's passions, whether or not one can accept their law, which is to burn the heart they simultaneously exalt -- that is the whole question.

Have patience with everything that remains unsolved in your heart. Try to love the questions themselves, like locked rooms and like books written in a foreign language. Do not now look for the answers. They cannot now be given to you because you could not live them. It is a question of experiencing everything. At present you need to live the question. Perhaps you will gradually, without even noticing it, find yourself experiencing the answer, some distant day.
-- Rainer Maria Rilke
I have approximate answers and possible beliefs and different degrees of certainty about different things, but I'm not absolutely sure of anything, and many things I don't know anything about, such as whether it means anything to ask why we're here, and what the question might mean. I might think about it a little bit, but if I can't figure it out, then I go on to something else. But I don't have to know an answer. I don't have to. . .I don't feel frightened by not knowing things, by being lost in the mysterious universe without having any purpose, which is the way it really is, as far as I can tell, possibly. It doesn't frighten me.
-- Richard Feynman
Love is the answer, but while you are waiting for the answer sex raises some pretty good questions.
-- Woody Allen
The important thing is not to stop questioning. Curiosity has its own reason for existing.
-- Albert Einstein
The primary question about life after death is not whether it is a fact, but even if it is, what problems that really solves.
-- Ludwig Wittgenstein
There are years that ask questions and years that answer.
There is but one truly serious philosophical problem, and that is suicide. Judging whether life is or is not worth living amounts to answering the fundamental question of philosophy.
-- Albert Camus
Thou shalt not answer questionnaires or quizzes upon world affairs, nor with compliance take any test. Thou shalt not sit with statisticians nor commit a social science.
-- W.H. Auden
To be or not to be. . .I think its a trick question.
