Good company

“Perhaps real wisdom lies in not seeking answers at all. Any answer we find will not be true for long. An answer is a place where we can fall asleep as life moves past us to its next question. After all these years, I have begun to wonder if the secret of living well is not in having all the answers but in pursuing unanswerable questions in good company.” ~ Rachel Naomi Remen

    Thanks Bill! I love this post about questions and answers.

    It echoes the idea, “is life about the journey or the destination?” I’ve always been a “journey” advocate myself. One question leads to another, and brings you to the next leg of the journey. And how much better it is to ponder the questions with others along the way…

    What do you all think?
