The greatest felony in the news business today is to be behind, or to miss a big story. So speed and quantity substitute for thoroughness and quality, for accuracy and context. The pressure to compete, the fear somebody else will make the splash first, creates a frenzied environment in which a blizzard of information is presented and serious questions may not be raised.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
What is work and what is not work are questions that perplex the wisest of men.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]

... I believe the best test of a model is how well can the modeler answer the questions what do you know now that you did not know before? and how can you find out if it is true?More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
I trust it will not be giving away professional secrets to say that many readers would be surprised, perhaps shocked, at the questions which some newspaper editors will put to a defenseless woman under the guise of flattery.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Clever people seem not to feel the natural pleasure of bewilderment, and are always answering questions when the chief relish of a life is to go on asking them.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
I roamed the countryside searching for answers to things I did not understand. Why thunder lasts longer than that which causes it, and why immediately on its creation the lightning becomes visible to the eye while thunder requires time to travel. How the various circles of water form around the spot which has been struck by a stone and why a bird sustains itself in the air. These questions and other strange phenomena engaged my thought throughout my life.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]

If you think about it seriously, all the questions about the soul and the immortality of the soul and paradise and hell are at bottom only a way of seeing this very simple fact: that every action of ours is passed on to others according to its value, of good or evil, it passes from father to son, from one generation to the next, in a perpetual movement.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]

If you do not ask the right questions, you do not get the right answers. A question asked in the right way often points to its own answer. Asking questions is the A-B-C of diagnosis. Only the inquiring mind solves problems.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
The mythology of science asserts that with many different scientists all asking their own questions and evaluating the answers independently, whatever personal bias creeps into their individual answers is cancelled out when the large picture is put together. This might conceivably be so if scientists were women and men from all sorts of different cultural and social backgrounds who came to science with very different ideologies and interests. But since, in fact, they have been predominantly university-trained white males from privileged social backgrounds, the bias has been narrow and the product often reveals more about the investigator than about the subject being researched.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Can a mortal ask questions which God finds unanswerable? Quite easily, I should think. All nonsense questions are unanswerable.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]

The last best hope of earth, two trillion dollars in debt, is spinning out of control, and all we can do is stare at a flickering cathode-ray tube as Ollie answers questions on TV while the press, resolutely irrelevant as ever, asks politicians if they have committed adultery.

I am, I must confess, suspicious of those who denounce others for having too much sex. At what point does a healthy amount become too much? There are, of course, those who suffer because their desire for sex has become compulsive; in their case the drive (loneliness, guilt) is at fault, not the activity as such. When morality is discussed I invariably discover, halfway into the conversation, that what is meant are not the great ethical questions but the rather dreary business of sexual habit, which to my mind is an aesthetic rather than an ethical issue.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Shocking writing is like murder: the questions the jury must decide are the questions of motive and intent.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]

Tony Shannon- IRS CI: [not knowing how to answer the question] I think we need to wrap this up now. Some of these questions are getting ridiculous. It's just turning into a pissing match.More [08/02/2005 12:08:00]

Magneto: Why do you come here, Charles?
Prof. Charles Francis Xavier: Why do you ask questions to which you already know the answers?

[Is a fiction film particularly well equipped to do the kind of work we usually associate with investigative or advocacy journalism?] No, I don't think it can be, especially if it has to serve a dramatic narrative, ... Everyone asks questions about the polemical side of the film, but for me it's also about a relationship between two people, their openness with each other, or their decision as a couple not to share, thinking they're respecting each other's privacy. People don't always tell each other what they need to know—not because they've got anything to hide, like a love affair, but because they don't want to invade. Our ability to be honest with each other, to say, I want this or I don't want that, it's all a distant cousin of what happens on the level of social policy, and it's who we are, isn't it? Politics starts in the bedroom.More [05/30/2006 12:05:00]
I think he falls in love with her all over again after she's gone and as he uncovers what she had been up to -- her work to uncover a vast and very corrupt corporate and political conspiracy. It's particularly intriguing since -- for much of the early part of the film -- Justin is suspicious of her; thinking she was having an affair. I think the film asks questions about relationships between people and personal honesty. The honesty between couples and not just at the level of betrayal, but just about simple communication.More [05/30/2006 12:05:00]
Because you're sitting here asking me questions like I have something to say; there is something unimportant about it.More [06/08/2006 12:06:00]

I was surprised how many people were familiar with comics. We got asked specific questions about comics and Kryptonite and things I knew nothing about. I was a little weirded out by them not separating the person I played from who I really was.More [09/15/2006 12:09:00]

“To me, there are a lot of questions that need to be answered. I think a lot of people here are furious at mine officials. If officials knew [the initial report] was incorrect, why didn't they come forward?”More [11/16/2006 12:11:00]
But if you're talking about fine art work, then I think you have to ask yourself some pretty deep questions about why it is you want to take pictures and what it is you want to say.More [11/24/2006 12:11:00]
