The questions that matter
have no easy answers.

The questions that matter
laugh when people say 'I see!'

The questions that matter
invite a thousand new questions.

The questions that matter
are worth raising
& exploring
perpetually.

Ron: (impatient at the pretense) Let's drop the labels! They might help some people look smart, but certainly not wise.
