“When I would come home from grade school, my parents would NOT ask, ‘What did you learn at school today?’” reports brilliant scientist Ellis Cowling, North Carolina State University Professor and later Research VP at the University of North Carolina.
“My parents would ask me, ‘What good questions did YOU ask today in school?’”
Thanks to Steve for sharing this memory from his friend at NCSU.
It occurs to me that the question to Ellis is a good one for adults, as well for children. What good questions are you asking today?
A critical mind may not be the key to bliss, but it is the only antidote to answers that make no sense. “The unexamined life is not worth living” (Socrates). Which also means, I suppose, that “the examined life IS worth living.”
After two weeks of partisan convention answers without questions, “What good questions are YOU asking?”
Share them here, if you like. NO platitudes, please. No answers. Just good questions.
