We strive for it, we long for it at times, we hug it when it comes along no matter from where. When a child look up to you and asks a question hoping you can answer it, or when an Academy gives you a gong or a citation for a life’s work. It isn’t all one but the way in which we feel about them is a mark of character.
To teach a child, even that you don’t know the answer, is the most precious gift you can ever give. The mind seeks patterns and answers all its life and it is vital to be able to inculcate at an early age that there are often many answers to the same question in life, and sometimes there are no answers at all.
To have adults secure in their ability to deal with unanswered questions will give us the best minds we can have.
