"Hillel taught...A person who is too shy to ask questions will never learn, and a teacher who is too strict cannot teach."~Pirkei Avot (2:5)
It is a moral imperative to never cease from asking questions and from discovering the wonders of the universe. If we become staid, unwilling to be critical, and too conservative in our thinking we fail ourselves and future generations.
All I Ask of You (from Phantom of the Opera) Music by Andrew Lloyd Webber; Lyrics by Charles Hart with additions by Richard Stilgoe
