"The Answer..."

"Very few beings really seek knowledge in this world - few really ask. On the contrary, they try to wring from the unknown the answers they have already shaped in their own minds - justifications, confirmations, forms of consolation without which they can't go on. To really ask is to open the door to a whirlwind. The answer may annihilate the question and the questioner."

- Anne Rice, “The Vampire Lestat”

  1. A question may also annihilate the questioned ... who remains speechless ..
    Lost in his own whirlwind of unanswered questions ..
