How else are you going to keep learning without asking? Don't be afraid to ask questions. Other people may be learning from the questions you are asking as well.

Behind every answer, there is a question.

Questioning is the key to knowing. I question everything I can.

There is no dumb question.

There is no such thing as ask the right question. Any question is valid to ask if it makes sense in your mind. Ask not, have not, know not.

Daisy said...

Without questions, where would we be?

Nicole said...

Life is one big question. We live each day filled with unanswered questions. I strongly believe you can never ask a stupid question, I believe it is stupid not to as a question.

Vanessa said...

In order to continue expanding our knowledge we should ask questions. What if everyone just stopped asking questions?

Gaby F. Baybeh said...

With every question asked you learn something new. So I try to ask alot of questions. :)

Michelle said...

without questions, how would we be able to learn? people should ask as many as 1,000 questions a day! solve your own questions, ask, discover. :)

Shivani said...

We should all ask questions or we will always have that doubt in the back of our minds. Don't hesitate just ask.

Better to ask a question when in doubt then to look ridiculous for doing the wrong thing.

The right to question is wonderful and very useful. "There is no such thing as a stupid question."

Questions lead to answers, answers lead to knowledge. Knowledge leads to many advances.

Luz said...

There is never a right question, just some not worded correctly. There is always a right answer to any question.

We expand our culture and society by asking questions; but sometimes in order to grow or learn we need shut up and listen.

Whether you are questioning who you are,if God exists, or just about what your favorite book is questions are vital to discovering something.Even if you might never find the answers, it's always better to ask then skip the opportunity to find out.

Questions are the creative acts of intelligence

surfershoes said...

The right to question is something every human possesses. Actually, I think its safe to say that every living and thinking creature has this right. A question can come in many forms and most importantly in the form of curiosity. Humans AND animals are both extremely curious, questioning the sights sounds and smells, especially the physics of the world around them.

We must ask questions if we want to continue growing intellectually. It is how we learn.

Asking questions leads a person to a reply. Socrates method questions a persons assertion and he would prove them wrong.P.L

I believe that the more questions you ask, the more intelligent you become. Why question something repeatedly in your head when all you have to do is ask?

Asking questions opens a person's mind to learning.

I think everbody should question everything they do. Entering a situation blindly good end up in bad results.

Luisa Isla said...

Asking questions can lead to improvement and new discoveries. Scientists conducting experiments seek answers from other scientists to advance in their research. People should take note and have a right to ask questions even if there might not be an answer. In that, questioning would lead to action in finding out the unexplainable.

Fernanda A said...

Questioning is very important. If you don't question, you don't know the answer and everything in this world requires an answer. A solution. So you must ask questions. Whether its right or wrong, you should never feel like you are asking the wrong question.

Esmeralda said...

Everyone expands their knowledge by questioning. If people don't question, they can't learn. EA

RV said...

Questions lead to answers and answers lead to knowledge, and you know what they say about knowledge, if you don't just ask.

One should question anything and everything this makes you smarter and get you to understand why and how something works or acts that way.-AN

I am constantly asking questions. In any environment I am; Like, at work, at school, at home, with friends, in the street. Because, we have the Right to Question.
My parents always taught me that the more questions I ask, the more knowledgeable I will become.

Every situation in life is unique.We must question everything with our own experience to make space for new ideas and understanding.

Kevin M said...

Questions are the base and foundations of our knowledge and awareness.

I agree that asking the right question is key. We often ask questions based on our assumptions, rather than asking questions that consider the many perspectives that may affect the answer. Sometimes, too, the answer is plain but the question is not - you may know what happened, but not why...until the right question is asked and answered.

Asking the right questions will only bring more knowledge to people interested in learning new things.

I believe everyone should have the right to question for various reasons. You should be able to question your surroundings, and even the laws that may sometimes keep you from doing things you want to do. I also feel that we should have the right to be able to question in school to learn and progress in life, and not only in school but in everyday life as well, when you don't understand something.

It's our right and our responsibility to question things. No one is going to spoon feed us the answers to life. Without an inquisitive mind, there would be no betterment of mankind

lachinita520 said...

To me, the right to question gives us the ability to explore and room to grow. The right to question can be like a double edged sword. Some use the right to question to demand answers while others, like me use it as a tool for knowledge and are just naturally curious. – D.T

The right to question just comes natural. If we don't question anything, what have we learned? The more you question, the more you know. -GP

Terrance said...

All questions are the right questions. Questions are asked to add knowledge to our memory bank. A world without questions means a world without growth.

The right to question can save your life. The right to question can change the way a situation is going especially to your favor. The right to question can prevent big mistakes from happening.
When in doubt ask questions, to err is human.

The right to question is essential for life. From birth we have an innate drive to want to explore and define everything around us. As we grow and mature into adults, we question many things such as social structures like school, family, religion etc. In order to create knowledge we must question all of the elements of life to better comprehend them and use them for our benefit.

Without question, life would be unknowledgable and we wouldn't have all the technology that we have today.

without question we would never advance as a society.

The key is to question, could not be more true, the more we ask the more we learn. Questions show a desire to learn and we all can learn from each other.
