Q and A:

John Cage: Hand the answers over to the I Ching and focus on what questions to ask.

Richard Dawkins: “Scientists may be confident that they have the best ways of answering questions. They don’t have all the questions…”

Chip Kidd (on Debbie Millman’s Design Matters): “How is the best solution found in the best definition of the problem itself?”

Morton Feldman: “Problem solving and solutions. There’s a vast distinction between those two words. In problem solving you don’t have to know what you’re doing. We all solve problems in our sleep. And we find solutions when we’re awake.”
