“The most successful people in life are the ones who ask questions. They’re always learning. They’re always growing. They’re always pushing.” —Robert Kiyosaki

“When you give advice, the brain is basically asleep. If you engage them and ask questions that help them come to their own insights, it comes alive.” —Dr. Henry Cloud
“Did you ask any good questions today, Isaac?” —Nobel Prize winning physicist Isidor Isaac Rabi’s mother’s daily question as she greeted him with after school
